This is possibly one of the best books I've ever read! A slide-show of stories twined around the life stories of women in a bookclub. The book takes you from the day they first met until decades later - in a hospital -waiting. Ms. Landvik use of character development is a marvel. I feel as if I not only really know these women, but I think I'm a charter member of their bookclub. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE READ THIS BOOK! You won't be sorry!

I loved this book. It's about women and friendship, motherhood, love & survival. Each character is interesting and Landvik shares enough of them to get you invested in who they are - even the ones you hate. Really well written. Perfect book club reading.

Hilarious! And sad. And a great read. My mom grew up in the neighborhood written about here and so it was great to relive some childhood memories.

A wonderfully charming, endearing, and funny story about five women living on Freesia Court. Their lives cross one night in winter in 1968. They form a friendship that continues to grow with their regular book club meetings.

This is an amazing story of five women who are neighbors in Minneapolis. They become friends and form a book club called Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons. It spans three decades of friendship, marriage, divorce, babies, grown children, secrets, growing up, you name it - it's in there. It flows effortlessly between the different women's perspectives and even provides a new list of books to check out! Each chapter begins with a book and the reason the host chose it for their book club.

My bookclub recently chose this book for our monthly meeting...and I have to say it was a hoot! We had a good time comparing all of the different characters and discussing how the book club in the book (yes, this book is actually about a book club!) is similar and different to our own. Great reading for an individual or a group!

This is an enjoyable book but the author takes the easy way out way too often. Their are conflicts that are resolved by the death of a character. Abuse is allowed to go on for years without interference. It's like a lifetime movie but still pretty likeable characters and a fast read.
