This week, I read...

The book revolves around four characters:
  • Helene lives the high life as the wife of a senator.  She wines and dines with the best of them.  But her life isn't all that it seems.
  • Lorna is a shopaholic living on a waitress' salary.  She has run herself into debt and turns to other options to save money.
  • Sandra is an agoraphobic woman who works as a questionable phone operator (think $2.99/minute).
  • Joss is a nanny who works for a psychotic mother that wants nothing to do with her children or home life.
The four women are connected by an addiction to designer shoes and the same size feet (7 1/2).  They join up to seek solace from their every day lives and find more than they ever bargained for.

Overall, I would rate this book 2 out of 5 stars.  Describing the book, it sounds like it'd be a lot more entertaining than it actually was.  I think because the chapters jumped between characters, it was difficult to really connect and gain interest.

I am actually VERY excited for next week's read (currently on the side of my blog page).

By the way, Katie is giving away a Kindle today!!

I'm glad I didn't buy this book! I wanted to read it, and now that you let me know it's not very good, I'm not! I have heard lots of good things about Compact with the Devil. I may have to read it!

Megan said...

I think this sounds good, I might have to try it out even though it wasn't as great a read as you thought. I hate when books do that!

Laura said...

I have a whole box of books I thought were going to be great and I just couldn't even finish because I just couldn't get into them. It's a major bummer

Katie said...

I really appreciate the honest review, the "official" synopses makes it sound like something I would want to read, but I hate books where the jump around a lot.

And thanks for the shout out :)

It does sound really interesting! Sad it only got 2 out of 5 stars. I love to read, but don't as much as I should. I guess I spend more time on blog/twitter than I do reading. ;)

I love this link-up.. let's me see what books I want to read!
