I really liked this book, here is my original copy. I'll most likely start a ring with this, as soon as the other one I just saw start dies down...

Wow - really didn't mean to be so slow... A good book with a collection of stories about a group of women and their different situations. Reminded me a bit of my book club... this is off to aditey.

I enjoyed this book more towards the end than the beginning. It was interesting to watch each of the women's story arc, but I felt that none of them were really flushed out enough, because there was so much ground to cover for each one.

Still a pretty fun read. As soon as I get the next address, it will continue on it's journey.

I really liked this book. I was a little dubious at first, because it gets off to a slow start. Once I got into it I couldn't put it down. Thanks for including me in the bookring. I'll send it on its way in the next day or so.

Finished the book and must say that I liked it! The characters are all interesting in their own ways, you get to know them though the book doesn't cover it all [otherwise, it would have needed to be much more longer for that!]. The bad point about it, I would say, is that it's hard to get into the story at first since we are following 6 persons and each chapter refers to only one of them. But, the more you read, the more you get into and it's then that you don't want to put down the book. Overall, it was a good read.

I've PM penelopewanders and, to avoid the Christmas rush at the post offices, I will mail it upon my return from my holidays, in the first week of January. I'll update again when the book will be out.

This arrived safely here in the Swiss Alps today. Thanks so much. Still one long ring in front of it, but should be able to get to it fairly soon. Thanks! (and thanks for the lovely card)

I agree with some of the other readers that this book gets off to a slow start, but once past the first meeting of the Sucias, it takes off and never slows. I enjoyed it very much - felt each woman was well characterized with her strengths and (many) weaknesses. I wonder if the first chapter was really necessary...
Thank you so much for making this available. I have PMed for the next address and hope to receive it soon, as I leave on holiday as of the 18th so either get the address and can send it before I leave or it will hibernate here safely until early April.

Got the book today, thank you for mailing and the postcard penelopewanders. I have one book going on at the moment, this will be the next one. Keep you posted.

I've been trying to read this one for couple of weeks now, still at the page 80 or so. It has been laying on my table for a week now and I just haven't really even touched it. Just feels like the story doesn't begin, I'm not really that interested of their lives, which are (have to admit) different from each other. Only reason that I could read the book is the curiosity of Elizabeths love life, but I can quess that in the end she comes out of the closet.

I already have next participants address, so I'll put it in the mail later this week. Thank you for letting me try the book. :)

EDIT 17.4.2008
Mailed the book on Tuesday 15th April. Travels in economy mail, should arrive in the end of the month. :)

It has arrived! Thanks a lot, mrsordonez, for including me in the ring at such late notice, and thanks to BOKWORMY for sending the book to me! 


Journal Entry 32 by wolkenklang on Friday, February 20, 2009

8 out of 10

Unlike the previous journalers I found the first chapter to be essential for the story, because it a) introduces all the characters in a short fashion, and b) tells how they all appear to be like from the outside. Their inner feelings and lives' histories are to be discovered when reading the following chapters, which make a good contrast to chapter 1.
The gap between inner self and outer facade becomes visible, which is one of the core themes of the book and present in all the girls' lives.

Having said that I found this a really good and outstanding book. Certainly not the shallow and superficial novel that I expected! :-) I'll definitely look for more books by this author.
