    The moral of this book, which applies mostly to women, is that you should not get married to someone who, if they discover by accident that you had an earlier career as a porn actress which you had felt, quite understandably, that you didn t need to mention, will go very quietly mad, so quietly that there will be no signs that you should get the hell out of the house.It may be a very good moral but it s not so useful, I think I mean, you can hardly ask your affianced gentleman Just imagine for The moral of this book, which applies mostly to women, is that you should not get married to someone who, if they discover by accident that you had an earlier career as a porn actress which you had felt, quite understandably, that you didn t need to mention, will go very quietly mad, so quietly that there will be no signs that you should get the hell out of the house.It may be a very good moral but it s not so useful, I think I mean, you can hardly ask your affianced gentleman Just imagine for a moment, darling, that you found out I d been a porn star for a year at the age of 20 oh yes, it s only a funny thought exercise, I know, indulge me won t you so, now, how would you feel, hmmm Okay Would we be cool No, no, as I say, it s just a crazy little imaginitive esprit, dear, nothingWell, maybe somebody could try that and report back to us what happens

    I m glad this wasn t the first Barnes I d read, because it would have been the last.It seemed, oddly, an immature work, being the worst of Updike with a dash of early McEwan I need to read something good now, to rinse out my mind.

    A middle aged man in his second marriage suddenly and seemingly inexplicably obsessed with his wife s romantic partners prior to their meeting I found this irrational, self centered, jealous man incomprehensible and unlikable It is a testament to Barnes incredible skill that I was drawn into the orbit and life of such a character in this short book Despite the very limited action, I could not put this down.

    This was the crappiest and most annoying book I read in the last year I didn t think Barnes was capable of ever writing such poor quality novels.

    A semi creepy erotic novel about a neurotic wimp who discovers his second wife had a short lived career in low budget sex comedies she never told him so he obsessively investigates her past sex life There are times when the story s amusing and times when it s just plain irritating WHAT I LEARNED FROM THIS BOOK This book would make a good BBC America TV movie with Richard E Grant playing the nutty husband I could see him making this story entertaining, otherwise we re doomed.
