Bettina is a wealthy housewife who is thrust into a world of pretentious artists and celebrities by her husband. May 09, Jan Priddy rated it really liked it. And but then there’s this crazy climax scene where finally everything comes out, kind of, and hubby just breaks down.

This is the kind of book that I have always envied for its style which I could never pull off. The tale stretches over roughly a six month period in the middle of her marriage to a successful and self-centered lawyer in the Upper West Side.

Nov 17, Brooke rated it it was amazing. Literarily, the writing is dw, with rich details and a fast moving plotline, although “nothing much” happens Then you go to being astounded at the husband. I think this is a split between 3 and 4 stars, and I feel like rounding up instead of angsting about it. It might be a bit dated—I’d like to think women don’t do this anymore—but the story still reads as fresh.

BTW, it was made into a memorable Oscar-nominated film inwhich is annoyingly out of print now – hello, Criterion, how about giving it your typically thorough treatment? Unica nota davvero stonata: But I still loathe Johnathan. Paperbackpages. Not that I think he was wrong to do so dezquiciada, the book is from Bettina’s POV, so we’re likely going to side with herbut it’s almost too wonderful to have him go through such a change of heart like that.

Not dizrio a decent family counselor, however, I doubt the ability to heal the relationship fully. Therefore, Bettina longs for George, and he, a bit, for her, in non-sexual ways, but their love scenes are especially pg-rated by today’s standards.

I still like the book immensely, but I sorta want to retract my earlier rapturous proclamation of its believability and all that. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Refresh and try again. The film’s ending is probably more realistic, but the novel is satisfying and both are wickedly funny. There’s a lot of substance to this novel. Mar 25, Oriana rated it really liked it Shelves: Full of shrewd observations about marriage and domestic life that are still relevant 50 years after it was first published.

Having, of course, better morals and a non social climbing mysoginistic husband, I did not, of course, resort to an affair, nor would ever, but Bettina is so isolated, both from her radically changed spouse, her children, her “friends” who are really backbiting associates, and even from any spiritual side she might have one had, that she felt there was nowhere else to turn. While the story is a bit dated, there’s still enough truth in Tina’s challenges and in the asinine behavior of her husband to make it somewhat relevant for today.


Bettina and her husband have been in a silent, seething fight for months, the kind of fight that encompases their entire lives, really, where neither would even consider backing down, because it would be anathema to even think that they might be at fault.

It’s like a fantasy ending, se kind of resolution that people who happen to be in sometimes-contentious relationships no one I know, of course only dream of.

Dec 23, Daysleeper rated it it was amazing.

Except for the fact that my husband is Not a mysoginist sexist pig, like the hubby in this book is,and the lack of an affair, lol, Bettina’s life is a lot like mine was a few years ago, when the Lyme panic almost had me house bound and agorophobic and everything else.

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. This book is hysterical. Bettina chose an affair very cleary and consciously- one of the first things she does purposefully as she begins to regain some control in her life- and chooses purposefully someone she canot love and who will not love her back, but who is also controlling And she’s not the doormat that she sometimes is in the movie.

I was also surprised and intrigued by the ending, and have spent time wondering how such an ending was received at the time of publication
