review 1: Despite the shortness of this story I literally did not put this book down. I sat still for the hour it took me to read it and did not stop reading, I didn't even touch my drink I had put beside me. I found it interesting how both were thinking along similar lines of murder and how the relationship sounds so real and you can imagine the couple at home arguing all the time. During the book it suggested a haunting which I did not expect at all and gave me a bit of a chill but gave the story much more excitement and how the story ended ....well I just had to chuckle.
review 2: Victor Smiley and his wife Joan have been married for almost 20 years and hate everything about each other. Victor’s seeing a young prostitute and dreams of being with her, whilst Joan ha
... mores started an affair with a builder. Both of them wants the other dead and it appears Joan gets there first. Briskly told, with a fine streak of dark humour and some smart little jumps, this is a well written version of an old tale (even down to the “it wasn’t me guv” statement that sees the co-conspirator go down). The ending though is deliciously Roald Dahl and perfectly fitting. All in all, not bad at all and worth a read. less

A very interesting and fun read although a tad predictable
A rather enjoyable, and quite funny, darker book.
Fun, quick read. Predictable...but enjoyable.
Excellent short story with nice twist.
