This book was nothing like I expected and a vast difference from the movie, which I love.
The Witches of Eastwick is the story of three women searching for something perfect in their lives, without knowing, bringing a mysterious man into town who they soon find with cause them more harm than good.
It was a very strange book, only for those with an open mind. It’s my first Updike novel and I’m glad that it was my first since I was familiar with the story and could follow it without wondering where Updike was headed. Although there were moments where I wondered what his finale plan was, and struggled with the differences between book and movie, I still found myself intrigued by the lives of the characters, where they were heading and what their future would hold for them.
It was very enjoyable and I look forward to reading more of his works.
