I've read a couple John Lutz books before so I was ready for this when I found it on the cheap. When you look for a roommate, try not to find one that's a psychopathic chameleon. I knew the bare bones of the plot but it was still a wild ride at times. Hedra moves in and starts usurping Allie's life. Before too long, Allie is in the soup so deep she might never get out.
Where does single white female come from?
The book was a slow burner at first but things picked up around the halfway mark. I've never seen the movie but from what I understand, the book is a lot more gruesome. The resolution actually bugged me a little bit.
A little too easy, maybe? Anyway, Single White Female was a fun way to spend a few hours. Three out of five stars. Fiona MacDonald. I am a massive fan of the film and only in the last year or so have I been aware that there was a book.
So i ordered it, put it on the shelf and promptly forgot about it. Until this weekend. Struggling to recover from an extremely nasty bout of Labyrinthitis has made going near any sort of book a massive no no for me.
Looking at words on a was the last thing I wanted to do. Still, I decided to give it a try for 20 s or so and ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting late into the night, my head swimming. I really liked this book. I liked the character development and how we got to see 'inside' Allie and Hedra's he something obviously that you don't get to experience in a film. Hedra or Hendra, which is the peculiar name for her on the back of the book I might persue another John Lutz when I feel completely better.
Bren fall in love with the sea. Many of them thrived on noise, she supposed. Maybe some people adapted to noise and then craved it. I really did not like this book nor did I enjoy the movie version. Other then scaring the heck out of present and future roommates I just do not get this book at all.
Also the grim path it takes just left me cold. It is a question for me as to which is worse. I think I will call it a draw. I would not recommend this book. Allie mi lezla na nervy. Nechat u Sama svoji DNA. Dean Winstanley.
Single white female
It's hard to judge this book on its own because I'm a huge fan of the film, which is why I read it. And it's like a rough draft that was made a lot better. The film is much more thrilling and psychological, with Hedra's character being much more dangerous, realistic and driven. Allie is also better in the movie, she's quite annoying in the book. The book feels dated, the dialogue is stilted and the characters feel like walk on puppets to fit the plot rather than real people.
Desperate singles, divorcees, shut-ins, and gays. People looking for sex partners who shared their particular perversions. Dangerous obsession Is it better to live alone? Single White Female is perhaps a strange title for a book, but according to the author, Single White Female has become an expression that he describes in the author's note: and the meaning of the expression is: When a woman is imitated too closely, or her clothes are secretly borrowed, or her boyfriend is stolen by a friend, she's been single white femaled. Allie is called by an unknown woman in the middle of the night.
The unknown woman wants to talk to her boyfriend who sleeps tight next to her.
After a while, she learns that there is a woman whom Sam has been having an affair with and Allie gets all worked up. And of course she throws him out of the apartment in the middle of the night. It is expensive to live in an apartment in Manhattan, New York. Therefore, Allie chooses to place an advertisement somewhere and search for someone that she can share the apartment with so it will get cheaper to live there 'cause she can't afford it alone.
A woman named Hedra becomes the chosen one. She is quiet and shy. The two of them are very different from each other. Allie is very confident, she knows she is pretty, she knows she has a great style and she knows that many envy her for many reasons. She is perhaps on the verge of being narcissistic, not just because of her self-esteem, but she also has the habit of thinking very negative or low about others, at least about most people.
But she and Hedra get along very well and they believe that living with each other will turn out just fine. Allie and Hedra live together even if they are like night and day. Allie the beautiful and confident one, while Hendra is natural and somewhat careful.
