Trying to get into this, but it's slow going. But some of the jokes remind me of the mother goose play my son was in in 8th grade

I read this 10 years ago and decided to reread it. I believe this book is the reason my sister became a stripper ( and possibly more). Still an interesting look into the sex industry.

Addictive story. It's like Gillian Flynn meets Chuck Pahlaunick so far....

Way too many characters. I feel like some were not even important to the story. Kind of a let down at the end. Not as exciting as I would have hoped.

rachelm I'm interested in your review. I've heard both sides on this one. 2y
baberj We'll still going slow. I'm going to rack up some library fines since someone put it on reserve and I can't renew it. 2y

Truly Madly Guilty | Liane Moriarty
Mehso-so

I felt the book was slow moving compared to Moriarty's other books. I wanted to know what happened, but at yhe same time didn't like the stereotypical characters.

rachelm Did you see HBO is making a series of it? 3y
baberj No. Of just the book or continuing on with characters? 3y

baberj A hotel for women in the 1950s. In 2016 a reporter is doing a story on the hotel and uncovers a secret about one of the residents. It's a good read about love, loss, feminism, etc. 3y
