- Here’s what happens:
- Expatriate housewife Anna tackles her boredom in a most unusual and promiscuous way. Shackled to an unfulfilling life in a Swiss village, she steps out of her comfort zone (and marriage) with a variety of lovers to get to the root of her unhappiness with her seemingly picturesque life.
- It’s good because:

- You’re looking for a scandalous, guilty-pleasure read. I had expected a more thriller-esque plot line, or at least a few unexpected twists, as this was a recommendation for those who enjoyed Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train, and this was definitely not as gripping or fast-paced. It was unexpected in its graphic content, however.
