Would you listen to The War of the Roses again? Why?
Yes, if I didn't see the movie. For some reason I felt the movie was better at telling the progression of events. Also I watched the movie back in 1989 and I have built it up so much in my head. So while listening to the story in 2016 I sort of have this high expectation and it didn't meet my expectation. Don't get me wrong, the book is still pretty good I just felt the movie was better.
Which character – as performed by Dave Giorgio – was your favorite?
Oliver, although I would have not gone down that path he did but I can understand why he did it. There was definitely the feeling of how angry he was because he worked so hard for what he have.
Any additional comments?
I remembered watching the movie and wondered how awful it was when two people in love fall apart like that. My aunt went through a really bitter divorce and that was how I related to the movie. I was excited when Audiobook Boom had the book to review, I couldn’t wait to listen to it. But because I love the movie so much that listening to the story pale in comparison. Sadly, I felt that the characters were not as interesting as the movie was. Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas was a perfect cast and made the movie. There were slightly more details in the book but it didn’t really matter because there wasn’t anything that you couldn’t derive from the movie. Overall it was a good read.

I loved this movie when to first came out, I had no idea it was based off a book.
The book is different then the movie, but just as good! they cut a lot out on the movie. The book explains things in more depth. it lets you follow along as Mr and Mrs Rose slowly go insane trying to toucher each other to make the other one leave the house. how love can turn to hate so fast! the poor family and kids.
