Book Review: The Witches of Eastwick

I just finished reading The Witches of Eastwick. I bought this book at a rummage sale years ago and honestly had no idea what it was about. I've never seen the movie but I assumed it was about witches. After reading this book I can safley say I didn't like it at all and was completely disappointed.

It was set in the 60's or 70's, I couldn't really tell but there were hippies around. It takes place in Rhode Island near the ocean and centers around 3 main women and a man who moves to their neighborhood from NYC. There wasn't much "witchyness" in the book. It was mostly just bitchy old divorced ladies putting curses on people they didn't like or who did something wrong to them. All 3 of them basically neglect their kids to go have orgys with the hairy guy from New York or hang out amongst themselves. Besides him all 3 of the women have random lovers throughout town, all who are married men. There was just something about the whole book and the main characters that made me pretty much hate them all. They bitched about their kids, the other women in town, each other, life, everything! I would never associate with women like that and most of the time while reading this book I wanted to punch them all! They were just a bunch of catty old broads and I don't recommend this book to anyone!

I attempted to read that book a few years ago. I hated it so badly that I didn't finish it. It is one of the few books that I didn't read all the way to the end.
