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.

Great fun to listen.

If you like revenge stories, and I do, well this is a very good one. Lots of laughs to keep the story from being too gloomy, and the revenge tactics are brutal, and very creative. I would not like to be married to the author.
