Overview

Life and Loves of a She Devil by Fay Weldon

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."
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."

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.

The book is about a woman who lives a 'good life'. She is rich, has a lot of men and a big house. She has also a man, who has already a wife and two children. The wife of the man cannot see her man being with another woman and she starts to fulfil her plans. At the end the rich and famous woman dies of cancer and the other one lives in the house of her predecessor.
