Well, I just had to show this one again for today‘s prompt. 😆😆 It‘s one of my favourite author signatures (and a really good Nicole Kidman movie, too).

Such a fun, cracking read. Unlikeable characters and despicable situations galore!

In my other post about this book I mentioned the excellent movie with Nicole Kidman and I have to mention it again. Her performance is to die for 🙃

somebooksaround This looks great!! 2y
readinginthedark I‘ve always admired how varied Kidman‘s roles are. I haven‘t seen this one, but she was amazing in The Hours, and it was so different from her other parts! 2y
batsy @readinginthedark Yes, she's really dug into some varied roles. I love her as the baddie, she seems to relish those parts! 2y

It sounds bad when I say this out loud, but this was such a fun look at a female sociopath. It's done with verve and black humour. In a way, it's also a look at the narcissism encouraged by mass media and celebrity culture. The movie was brilliant and I think it's one of Nicole Kidman's best performances. She seems to have relished playing this character. #evilwoman #rockinmay @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Didn't know this was a novel...Nicole Kidman was brilliant in this film💜 3y
LeahBergen Scroll down under this book to my post and see how the author signed my copy. It's hilarious! 😂 3y
Gezemice I saw the movie and agree, she was brilliant. Scared the hell out of me. Didn't know Bout the book, either! 3y

batsy The novel is good fun! I remember reading it on holiday and did not want to put it down. @Gezemice @Cinfhen 3y
Hobbinol I'll have to read this and I loved Kidman's performance too. I think the writer was Salinger's girlfriend when she was very young. 3y
batsy @Hobbinol Yes indeed she was! I do recommend the book ☺️ 3y
