    1. In all fairness to the book, I knew right from the start it was not going to be my cup of tea I am not exactly in the chick lit s target group though every now and then I do find such reads amusing I can t explain what possessed me to pick it up in the library and even worse, to not put it down any On the positive side, it is indeed a page turner and I found the idea of seeing things from different points of view, interesting However, large chunks of dialogues are consistently repeated from one [...]

    4. This book starts with quite a raunchy sex scene but mercifully the rest of the book is fairly tame Undemanding read, but I struggled to like many of the characters.

    7. Good read Suitably rounded characters, interesting plot Well written from several POV except for large repeated dialogue sections that offered not a lot of difference in the internal thought process I feel like if you re going to do that, there needs to be something to help us understand their side if the story I just found myself flitting over the repeated dialogue, sometimes a page or .This is my first Tess Stimson book and would be happy to read another.

    8. La classica storia del triangolo Le tre stelle le ho date perch , pur considerando il genere leggero a cui il libro appartiene, mi piace il modo in cui racconta la storia di un tradimento coniugale in modo divertente e originale, alternando in ogni capitolo il punto di vista dei tre protagonisti lui, la moglie, l altra Un libro simpatico perfetto per la spiaggia.

    9. Moderately entertaining chick lit Tess Stimson tends to retell bits of the story from another character s point of view and whilst in the beginning this is quite interesting, by the end of the book I was wanting to shout, Yes, yes, I know about that just get on with it

    13. First let me say I detest infidelity in any form whether it s portrayed as justified due to mental incapacity of one partner, or due to duress of blackmail in some form The author Tess Stimson, captured the chain for me in this titled book The Infidelity Chain , and all the different people infidelity effects, very poignant agonies from all involved.I would have preferred a different outcome to the actual book version, maybe the brother would have been involved, I just don t agree that the two [...]

    14. Wow, read 2 books by this author in 2 days and she didn t disappoint The story is brilliant, touching, and so real I love the narrator changes and how some incidents are told from different POVs Even though some may find the theme is too hard to digest, I see that everything s not always black and white, there s always gray area and reasoning The story is told beautifully and flowing I enjoy so much, I read it in 1 sitting I love how it has happy ending almost thought it didn t though the real e [...]

    15. Book Review The Infidelity Chain ai booksI didn t have too much expectation with this book when I picked it up from the library It s not what I usually read adultery But, this book really surprised me It was quite good and it s really not what I ve been expecting I m really glad that the plot line wasn t a clich In fact, each of the chapter makes me frowned with surprise The story line was really unpredictable.

    16. This book follows the lives of two adulterers and the people around them I like how the book is structured to change point of view between all the people involved the cheating wife, the cheating husband, their respective spouses, and even the children get involved There were quite a few sex scenes in this book which I guess is a good thing depending on what you re after The execution of them was rough at best No foreplay to speak of, just down to the nitty gritty details.

    17. I enjoyed this book It had a real soap opera feel to it, with every chapter ending on a cliff hanger If you can wrap your head around the links between the characters, you ll be ok with this book You will also need to adapt to the change of character Each chapter is narrated by a different character and the chapters overlap to help fully explain the situation from all angles All in all, not a bad escape.

    18. Loved this book, if there was a 4.5 rating i would have given it exactly that Really liked all the different perspectives and the different things going on in each persons lives but yet they all mold together to make the one story line Would recommend this to anyone who likes a bit of not overly romantic chic lit every now and then.

    21. Couldn t decide if this was a 3 star or 4 star book The story keeps your attention Love some of the characters Love hate some of the characters particularly William The author uses some very nasty language I did enjoy it it was a good quick read.

    22. An intriguing tale of adultery and failure This book demonstrates the ways in which people s lives can be affected by illness, love, desire, dishonesty, and above all else, honesty Definitely a character driven novel, and a compelling read.

    29. Whilst the storyline was entertaining the constant repetition overlapping chapters became somewhat annoying and only served purpose to add page numbers and not content
