Book Review: “The Other Woman” by Eric Jerome Dickey

Oh I couldn’t wait to get to the Library today to check out more books but I’m also about 24 hours overdue for the book review on ” The Other Woman” by EJD.

It started off slow for me, I guess because everything was so “Normal” for a perfect life and marriage. Work, Sex, and play until the husband comes home with a black eye from his LOVER’s husband.  The affair was over by the time she found out about it but the Lover’s husband seeked sweet revenge by sexing his cheating wife’s lover’s WIFE down. Humph…are you still with me. 

 The best parts of this book for me were the love for the arts that were expressed by the characters and the friendship “Freckles” and her girl “Yvette” shared…honest and true. I also had to raise the roof on mention of my new hometown, Palm Springs CA. It felt good to know the highways, counties, traffic routines, etc of the characters location.

It took me a minute to get into it but I must say it had one HELL of and ending! It left me thinking that’s it? I needed more…I needed closure dammit! I needed to mourn the death of one of the characters…LOL!   I recommend this book to others!

I’ve checked out three more:

  • “Colored Sugar Water” by Venise Berry
  • “Closer to Fine” by Meri Weiss
  • (some random career book)

    I used to love reading EJD…I haven’t in years, though. I’m sure it was good if it was anything like his earlier writings.

    I’m only 15 and I took this book from my mums collection (wrong I know) but it’s an extreemly good book filled with passion, intamasey and creativity. I was opened up to a new meaning of relationships. It’s a thumbs up from me :).
