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."
Or Carol E. Rinzler, who wrote on The Washington Post Book World's front page, ". . . what makes this a powerfully funny and oddly powerful book is the energy of the language and of the intellect that conceived it, an energy that vibrates off the pages and that makes SHE-DEVIL as exceptional a book in the remembering as in the reading . . . . a small, mad masterpiece."

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
'Fantastic...a carefully worked-out fable, satiric and finally bitter...Just about everyone in this novel is selfish and horrid, but Weldon tells her story with infectious, wicked glee. Just 'how' Ruth manages her revenge on Bobbo, Mary Fisher and the brats is what makes this malicious parable so palatable. And it's very funny.
Rhoda Koenig
...a novel of blazingly hot revenge, one that amply illustrates the theory about Heaven having no rage like love turned to hate, nor hell no fury like a woman scorned. -- New York Magazine

    great read!

    I could not put this down. Warning this is nothing like the movie they made from this book (She-Devil). It is much much darker and sinister. I finished the book not believing the depths this woman went through for revenge. Highly recommended for a quick read.
