The bride stripped bare

A story about a newly wed London wife in her 30s who is unhappy and unsure about her life and relationship and starts several affairs. Of course it´s more complicated than that but her search for a meaning is what the story is about.
It´s written like a elaborate diary...the language is descriptive and very precise. You can feel for her, sometimes more and sometimes less, although you know that what she does is not right.
But the whole story seems so realistic and honest that I couldn´t stop reading it. And sometimes it was quite a sexy read, can´t deny that.
The "Anonymous" makes it sound more scandalous and mysterious but it is still a work of pure fiction by the known author Nikki Gemmell.
For me a book well worth reading escpecially for everyone married.
