    1 thought on “The Rules Of Life

    1. The Rules Of Life by Fay Weldon aspires to the feeling of a full length novel in the guise of a small novella In less than 30,000 words, we are presented with a science fiction scenario, a society and even culture wide ideological and religious shift, a transformation of our approach to death, and then, if that were not enough to make a cake, a life history and the reactions of others to it iced on top It is a remarkable feat to bring all that off, create a complete and highly satisfying experie [...]

    2. Black humor, among my favorite genres Fay Weldon, the author of Life and Loves of a She Devil, writes a small novel about the dictation of rules of life, along with her own story, by a woman named Gabriella Sumpter a woman who happens to be dead, and whose recording from the grave is being reviewed by a member of the GNFR Great New Fictional Religion , a priest who is a servant of the GSWITS The Great Screen Writer in the Sky Yes, it s that strange Gabriella is a woman, by her own account, who h [...]

    3. Despite being very, very short this book outstays its welcome Perhaps an interesting idea for a short story, but frankly as a novella it seemed a little padded And the sexual politics is so very outdated.

    4. Another not very sympathy inducing woman Well, there were some innovative ideas about communing with the dead, and not being overly fond of suspense, this could be considered par excellent there

    5. Gabriella Sumpter is a great character All about lovers and laundry The rules of laundry are not the rules of life

    6. Quite a curious little book You can t help but feel for Gabriella and her endearing obsession with laundry An excellent resource for stain removal.

    7. I did not quite get the dystopian setting Strange days indeed but I certainly enjoyed Gabriella s story and the way it influences the protagonist.

    8. Yes, the rules, I love this little book and have read it several times I love Fay Weldon black humor and this is a gem I ll never let go of.
