Publisher's Summary

Before they were the widows of Eastwick, our heroines were a trio of delightfully wicked witches.In a small New England town in that hectic era when the sixties turned into the seventies, there lived three witches. Alexandra Spoffard, a sculptress, could create thunderstorms. Jane Smart, a cellist, could fly. The local gossip columnist, Sukie Rougemont, could turn milk into cream. Divorced but hardly celibate, the wonderful witches one day found themselves quite under the spell of the new man in town, Darryl Van Horne, whose strobe-lit hot tub room became the scene of satanic pleasures.To tell you any more, dear reader, would be to spoil the joy of reading this hexy, sexy novel by the incomparable John Updike.

"Enjoyed" the movie more

The novel is beautifully written with prose and imagery that, to me, provides new ways of looking at nature and fertility. Yet, the story is so languid and dry that it takes forever to get anywhere. This novel is brilliantly written, but I really enjoyed the movie more, although they are really two completely different things.

How did this thing ever become a best seller?

What would have made The Witches of Eastwick better?

Never to have been written! How did this thing become a best seller? The story is bad and the people in the book are all so nasty and unlikable that you want them all to just die by the end of the book. What was the point of this mess and it is gross about sex and woman.

Has The Witches of Eastwick turned you off from other books in this genre?

I don't know but I do know I will never read anything by John Updike again!

Which scene was your favorite?

They are all so unlikable that there is none.

What character would you cut from The Witches of Eastwick?

All of them!

Any additional comments?

I really was looking forward to this book. I had heard it was nothing like the movie so I did not go into it thinking it would be. However, I have never read a book before that makes you hate every person in it and can also makes you sick with the gross details of the women's monthly and what they do with their fluids. Mr. Updike must hate woman big time to write this book. Good God what did his mother do to him as a kind for him to feel the way he does about woman?
