Journal Entry 1 by Rache from Chertsey, Surrey United Kingdom on Wednesday, December 22, 2004
"Alexandra is an actress, beautiful and lauded. In the eyes of the world she has everything a woman could want: husband, home, child, income, good looks, good friends, the plaudits of the crowd and the affection of neighbours. However, all fate has to do to bring her down is snip a single strand. "

This book arrived last week, but as I have no internet access at home I can journal it just now.
Thanks Rache for sending it - was it part of the "informal book club just for fun"?

Journal Entry 3 by DEESSE from Erstein, Alsace France on Thursday, December 25, 2008
Quite a book!
I read a new chapter with new revelations and thought: "How worse can it get for this poor woman?" And I just hope that I never have to live such a nightmare!

In the end I was just a bit sad for The Cottage...

The style was quite funny, however:
"'You were still in my bed,' said Alexandra. (After she discovered that her husband didn't die in the living-room but in bed with her best friend...) 'I was set up,' said Abbie, 'by Ned. I think he wanted to put Lucy off. He wanted her to discover us together.' 'And he died in the set-up,' said Alexandra. 'He came and then he went.' 'He came and then he went,' repeated Abbie, and gave her friend a small, shy smile, which to her astonishment was returned." (p.177)

This book will travel with me to Aalen, where the first OBCZ meet-up will be held on 28th December. Maybe somebody wants to read it.

Journal Entry 6 by simy911 at University of Utah - Department of Biology in Salt Lake City, Utah USA on Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Released 10 yrs ago (7/30/2010 UTC) at University of Utah - Department of Biology in Salt Lake City, Utah USA


I released the book back in July on the UofU Biology Department bookshelf.

I've had it for quite a while but before leaving SLC for good and moving to Switzerland it was time to set it free and let it move on. I hope it will have a great journey and I can't wait to read the next journal entry!

Picked this book up at a café, liked the reviews on the back cover, discovered bookcrossing.com, further intrigued...!

Journal Entry 8 by Elozable at Salt Lake City, Utah USA on Saturday, June 15, 2013
Quick read, well-written, but, sadly, didn't find it amusing despite reviews on the back cover to the contrary. A must-read for any / every woman who has an affair with a married man / serial adulterer and mistakenly thinks she'll be the woman he "really" loves.
