I don’t usually give book reviews. Usually. However, I feel the need to say a bit on this. Good Christian B***es. This book has garnered enough attention with the show GCB. I had to read it. The moral is simple. Sweet Texas girl gets married, moves with her husband to California. They have two children. The whole time he’s having affairs left and right. When the wife finds out, she leaves. Taking her children back to Texas. Home is a swanky suburb of Dallas. All the women are rich (well most of them) and church going women.
Now leave it to the two who aren’t rich to get jealous because you leave your husband and move home and look great. They try everything they can to drag our main chick down, all through Bible Study. Needless to say, our leading lady wins in the end, gets the guy and makes some friends.
Now enough of describing what happens. Let me get to it. I love reading. Love it. But this book, it was only eh. 90% of the book was the plot to destroy and 10% was the resolution. I think it could have been written better, the plot not as drug out and the resolution should have been longer. This could have easily been several books in a series. I would have read it for sure. I think it would have made the resolution more satisfactory.
I understand where the term GCB comes from and can totally understand why it was coined.
But, let me just say this. It is NOT the attack on Christianity that some believe. It’s not making fun of the good christian women out there. I know it’s hard to believe, but you can look at the cover of the book or read the hype and think it is. But it is not. Lessons can be learned from it. It’s really about those hypocritical christian women who use Church and God as their wage war on people.
For the moral part I give it a 5 out of 5. For the rest of it, I give it a lowly 2 out of 5.
