    One thought on “Casual”

    1. Her subsequent books are quite a bit better but Casual was the first and started a whole genre - you have to give it credit.

    2. 2,5* (the plot twist made me add half a point)This was kind of a weird read. I felt like the writing wasn't really good, but who am I to say that. None of the characters had any depth and they did nothing so that you would root for them. The story was quite interesting but the characters just ruined it. It felt like a Russian version of Desperate Housewives with a murder in it. The thing I liked was the plot twist at the end, didn't see that one coming, other then that, wouldn't necessarily reco [...]

    3. Simply horible . the subject might have been interesting but the why of the writting is horible . to short phrases . to fast changments its like reading a letter a very bad one

    4. For the full review, go to my blog: rubys-books/2012/This book reminded me of Desperate Housewives, only in Russia. You have funny moments, tragic moments, some tears, plots and schemes and money. Lots and lots of money. The heroine of this book is very witty, sarcastic, sometimes almost snarky. Her and her friends are rich and they aren't afraid of showing that. The author takes you from spas to exclusive restaurants and clubs, where the rich people in Moscow have fun, drink, gossip and flirt. [...]

    5. I have always been fascinated with the subject matter pertaining to this main character's community. So, when I saw the book at my local bookstore, I knew I wanted to get started on it immediately. Wonderful it was, and although it wasn't something life-changing, it gave the reader an inside look into a subject that is rarely touched on. I have not seen many other authors try to capture this subject--but if I do, I'll be sure to read that as well ;)

    6. It's just bad. I'm not sympathetic towards ANY of the characters, let alone the main one, and I'm not even impressed by the life, the money, the furs, .The worst chick-lit book I've read. So far at least.

    7. Written in a very simplistic style, the book nevertheless has its moments of depth. Very brief moments. Mostly it's about shallow Russian women and their extravagant spending habits. And a murder. (Some of the extravagant spending is concerned with avenging said murderd moving on.)

    8. Almost a Russian Desperate Housewives on steroids. Mob murders, buttermilk importationa great quick, fun summer read.

    9. It was too tyring! Drugs, sex and shopping! Don't get me wrong I'm not the crazy feminist but none of her characters are half of the woman!

    10. Easy reading, and kind of a hard core story. I saw stories on TV about this neighborhood while in Moscow this summer, and it was a good read in light of what I'd heard

    11. Based on a true story, this is an interesting peek at the upper class women of modern-day Russia. The luxury and excess are unbelievable

    12. увлекательно, легко и ненавязчиво В памяти не остается? Ну и что! Не все же время на серьезную литературу тратить.

    13. Ik heb hem uitgelezen, omdat het moest van mezelf. Maar jemig: waar ging het nou over? Dunne verhaallijn en niet erg pakkend geschreven wat mij betreft
