NATIONAL BESTSELLER "A juicy melodrama cast against the sultry, stylish imagery of North Africa in the fifties." --The New Yorker The last person Alice Shipley expected to see since arriving in Tangier with her new husband was Lucy Mason. After the accident at Bennington, the two friends--once inseparable roommates--haven't spoken in over a year. But there Lucy was, trying to make things right and return to their old rhythms. Perhaps Alice should be happy. She has not adjusted to life in Morocco, too afraid to venture out into the bustling medinas and oppressive heat. Lucy--always fearless and independent--helps Alice emerge from her flat and explore the country.  But soon a familiar feeling starts to overtake Alice--she feels controlled and stifled by Lucy at every turn. Then Alice's husband, John, goes missing, and Alice starts to question everything around her: her relationship with her enigmatic friend, her decision to ever come to Tangier, and her very own state of mind. Tangerine is a sharp dagger of a book--a debut so tightly wound, so replete with exotic imagery and charm, so full of precise details and extraordinary craftsmanship, it will leave you absolutely breathless. Optioned for film by George Clooney's Smokehouse Pictures, with Scarlett Johansson to star… (més)

Enjoy! ( )

Holy shit that was terrible on so many levels. Seriously. Complete crap. Flat characters, an insane amount of gaslighting, and my bullshit meter exploded. I wouldn't have finished it at all except it was my suggestion for the upcoming Cocktail Hour show and I subjected two of my friends to it so I felt it was my duty. Ugh. At least we'll have fun talking about it. So there's that...

Depressing, devious characters. ( )

It's annoying when nothing really happens for the first 70% of a book. I was eager to dive into this one but I was quite disappointed. I would have thought that gaslighting a vulnerable female was a trope that has been done to death. To quote Amadeus, this novel had "too many notes". ( )

Someone raved about this one and I was excited to start it. I'm still over the potentially unreliable character thing so this was just alright for me. A bit twisting and a bit predictable. ( )
