Hilarious

A circle of neighbours in small-town Minnesota form a book club. They are an eclectic and engaging group of women who share lots of love, loss, laughter, and books over the years. Guaranteed to make you want to start a book club of your own!

This was a light read for me, thoroughly enjoyable as you follow the lives of 5 very different women who form a very close friendship. I also tend to enjoy books about book clubs.

Sooo, another chosen read in a book club. And generally didnt like it because there wasn't much substance to keep me drawn in. The story covers time period from 60-90's where housewives of a neighborhood come together to form a book club and become long time friends in the process. I largely disliked it because it reminded me too much of the, Desperate Housewives, tv show- which I can't stand. Just went i some what got into the book, the ending hits you in the face! Definitely thumbs down.

Lorna Landvik has an amazing knack for writing about the friendships between women. In ANGRY HOUSEWIVES EATING BON-BONS she chronicles the lives of five women friends in Minnesota who establish a book club: beautiful Merit, oversexed Audrey, activist Slip, Dallas transplant Faith, and late-life adoptive mother Kari. Over thirty years we follow and share each woman''s experiences as the group members mature, bearing and raising children, experiencing marital ups and downs, reaching epiphanies... and meeting monthly to discuss books. The story takes place in the changing social context of midwest America between the late 1960s and the late 1990s. Landvik''s characters are immediately likable, and her talent for writing conversation shines particularly brightly in ANGRY HOUSEWIVES.
