Beautiful Bodies Reviews

  • Kari

    First book chosen for "book club". I thought it was the perfect choice, especially given the winter we've had in chicago this year.

    A great dissection of six friends in their late 30's living in New York.

  • Amber Bryant

    Good book about a bunch of friends..their relationships with people in their lives, with themselves & each other.

  • Yankel Gofshteyn

    Ony of my favourite books, so in style of " The Hours" by Michael Cunnigham

  • Marika

    A wonderful story about 6 female friends: Jessie, Nina, Lisbeth, Sue Carol, Claire and Martha. You can see a little bit of yourself in each and every one of these 36 to 40 year old ladies.

  • Marie

    A more realistic, intelligent "Sex and the City": 6 long-time female friends at a dinner party.

  • Kaitlyn (ktxx22) Walker

    Not going to lie after a dismally slow start I actually enjoyed the last third of this book a lot!! Women, of different lifestyles, backgrounds, but friends for nearly 20 years. It was an excellent depiction of the various characters that inhabit friendship circles.

    I don't have much to say about this book, good or bad. I don't know what that means but I guess that means that it was just ok and not that memorable.

    I liked the structure and writing style of the book. I liked the structure because before all of the characters got together, the author devoted a chapter to each character which I loved because it gave me a chance to really get to know the characters and emotionally connect with each one (except Martha, that bitch!).

    I liked the structure and writing style of the book. I liked the structure because before all of the characters got together, the author devoted a chapter to each character which I loved because it gave me a chance to really get to know the characters and emotionally connect with each one (except Martha, that bitch!). I thought the writing style was unique because it was humorous and poetic at e same time. That is a combination I can't easily recall of any book I've read.

    There were only a few things that bothered me but that might not bother anyone else. The main thing I didn't like was how detailed the sex scenes were but that's just how I am. Another thing I didn't like was that even though the book had a happy ending, it still left me wondering what happened to the characters after that night. On a random note, I was confused and wondered about why the title was chosen for this book.

    I think it would make a good beach read.

    I read this years ago. I didn't hate it and i remember the characters well enough. Then again, i never reread it either. If you file it under chick-lit it falls under the less-fluffy variety, meaning you can read it in public and still respect yourself in the morning. The blurb compares it to Dorothy Parker. Er...no. Just no.

    Published in 2002 this feels very "Sex and the City". Six late-30-something women of NYC get together for dinner and a baby shower and share their life-, love-, and sexual-disasters.

    References to Trump as a NY real estate guy, early flip phones, and palm pilots make this feel somewhat dated. And these women are disasters. It's like the 6 dwarves of stereotypical women.
