by Charlotte Armstrong
The story seemed so familiar to me, but then I realized that I'd seen the Marilyn Monroe movie.
I found most of the characters to be annoying, but still enjoyed the book for the most part. I did not care for the one-time use of the "N-Word" because I didn't think it was necessary.
I didn't appreciate Eddie recommending Nell as a babysitter. He should have known better.
Obviously I couldn't stand Nell.
Bunny should have been 3 instead of 9. With the way she was treated you would have thought she was a toddler. I get that this was the 1950's and kids acted differently than they do now, but Bunny's age really didn't add up. You would have never guessed that Bunny would be a teenager in likely just 3 1/2 years.
The synopsis on the back of the book was confusing. It says something happens that doesn't, so I was expecting it because I didn't remember not to expect it, because I'd forgotten I'd seen the movie.
I've read one other Charlotte Armstrong book, and I'm not quite sure I like the way she writes her dialogue.
