    One thought on “Orange Moon”

    1. Battered and bruised, Alice Hughes simply has to find a way to get out of the abusive marriage she is in. She knows it’s only a matter of time, not if, but when her husband Richard will end up killing her. After a particularly bad beating, Alice hits upon the perfect plan. She will leave Richard. But she’s not going to move out. Oh no, it’s her house, she will simply stay in it and remain hidden. This will give her body the time it needs to heal and also the time to think about her next st [...]

    2. Kate Genet always spins a great yarn. "Orange Moon" is like "Dolores Claiborne" meets "Misery", but with lesbians. Perfect Halloween read.

    3. I've had this book in my "to be read" list for awhile, but I wish I would have read it sooner. It drew me in from the start, filled with suspense and twists, I had a really hard time putting it down.There is a little graphic content with the abuse, but I feel it has to be there to get the vividness of the story. It has just a few editing errors, but when I like a book I'm reading, it doesn't bother me.

    4. I really like the whole book until I got to the end. I felt like maybe the author struggle to find a ending that fitted the rest of the book. If i the ending had been as good as the rest of the movie then I would had given it another star.
