Ugh I did not enjoy this book Read it for a class otherwise I probably wouldn t have finished it As it was the boyfriend had to endure some outraged ranting The characters were flat in the extreme when they weren t being petty bitches And the message Maybe I was reading it wrong but the message I got was that women are only powerful when they don t have men Doesn t matter if they leave the men or the men leave them All that matters is the absence Then when they have that power they will use it to do petty and awful things They will also sleep around because even though being without men is what gave them the power in the first place they certainly can t actually be happy without men in their lives They will spend their days gossiping and neglecting their children entirely even though they seem to do absolutely nothing else with their lives Then when their idiocy leads them to do something truly reprehensible they will decide that they were better off with husbands in the first place and go off and get married thus surrendering all their powers and negating the whole point Wow I feel positively inspired John Updike I don t think you and I are friends In fact I think I will be avoiding you for the foreseeable future Stars from Another Sky The Bombay Film World of the 1940s play Thenceforth scandal flits through the darkening crooked streets of Eastwick and through the even darker fantasies of the town’s collective Database Internals: A Deep Dive into How Distributed Data Systems Work psyche.

review The Witches of Eastwick ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub characters ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ John Updike Toward the end of the Vietnam era in a snug little Rhode Island seacoast town wonderful powers have descended upon Alexandra Jane and Sukie bewitching divorcées with sudden access to all that is female fecund and mysterious Ale. I m suprised by all the reviews of this book that speak of Updike s ability to get and fully understand women because that seemed to me to be the most blatantly lacking part of this novel There is not one redeemable female character in this novel All of the women are vapid vacuous and often than not cruel indifferent and self absorbed I am not being prudish I m not suggesting that every female character should be a paradigm of female virtue but what is Updike saying about women when all the female characters in this novel are largely abhorrent Awful mothers absent lovers even the females on the periphery often the jilted the abandoned the victims understandably wind up shrill judgemental bitter Even the men are flat not explored Presumably this is all part of Updike s social commentary on something But what exactly that might be remains at this point unclear to me
