Publisher's Summary

This is not a book for everyone, but its admirers are vigorously enthusiastic.
For example: Rhoda Koenig in New York Magazine, who calls it "...a novel of blazingly hot revenge, one that amply illustrates the saying about heaven having no rage like love turned to hate, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."
Or Rosalyn Drexler, who said on the front page of The New York Times Book Review, "It affords a scintillating, mindboggling, vicarious thrill for any reader who has ever fantasized dishing out retribution for one wrong or another."

Loves this narrator

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES. It is a very entertaining dark comedy with some incredibly shocking elements.

What does Gemma Dawson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She captured the darkness of this story with an almost tongue-in-cheek quality.

Her tone was perfect and her character voices were incredibly believable. She made me laugh and cringe at the same time.

If you could take any character from The Life and Loves of a She-Devil out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Bobbo. And I would poison his food! LOL.

Any additional comments?

This was made into a movie with Meryl Streep. It is a very unique book.
And Gemma Dawson brought the story to life in a whole new way. She is one of my favorite narrators.

The Scorned

I can say this audio was very well written by Fey Weldon . Gemma Dawson is my absolute favorite it goes without saying this book is the very very best. I know it was a major motion film at one time by Roxanne Barr & Danny Davito. I enjoyed both the movie and audio thoroughly.
