Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bernard's wacky but wit-deficient story revolves around Dr. Vera Alexander, a radio talk-show psychologist who specializes in sexual ennui, and her bizarre friendship with the woman who kidnaps her. Vera's captor, Stacy, has sought Vera out for her expertise, objectivity and because her voice "helped Stacy to feel better somehow" in the troubling turn her love life has taken: after Stacy's boyfriend pluges to his death on a mountain hike, he somehow comes back to life. Stranger still, Stacy has taken it upon herself to kill him-twice-with the same results. Complications set in as these Mulder and Scully-meets-Thelma and Louise types repeatedly murder Stacy's boyfriend, trying to uncover "more loopholes in reality." . Bernard (God in the Image of Woman) aspires to cross the gore of Chuck Palahniuk with the irreverence of Christopher Moore, but flat dialogue and a clunky, exposition-heavy resolution make this novel feel like little more than a mordant premise wrought three hundred pages long.

Review

"A stunning, imaginative walk along the wild side, with a deliciously twisted premise that you won't soon forget. Readers tired of the same old-same old would do well to pick up this book."
-- Brandon Massey, author of The Other Brother

"This story will leave you howling, 'Oh no he didn't!'"
-- Tina Brooks McKinney, Author of All That Drama and Lawd, Mo' Drama

"This ain't your mama's chick-lit. But it's sisterhood, all right -- with an edge -- and D.V. Bernard has cleverly combined the feminine mystique of Diabolique with the wit of Michael Chabon's Wonder Boys." -- Christopher Chambers, author of Sympathy for the Devil and A Prayer for Deliverance

"This is the most humorous book of the decade and D.V. Bernard is destined for greatness!"
-- Zane, NY Times Bestselling Author of Afterburn

Any woman who has had a relationship with a man would pick this book up on title alone, however be warned, it is not what you think . . . this death is not permanent. At least it is not permanent in D. V. Bernard's How to Kill Your Boyfriend in Ten Easy Steps.

This book begins when a young woman, Stacy, who claims to have killed her boy friend. She abducts Dr. Vera, a famous radio call-in host and psychologist. Like anyone with good sense, Vera tries to get away but Stacy forces her to get into a van where her boyfriend's nude corpse is. Vera is shocked by the events taking place, but she is even more undone when the boyfriend comes back to life. She almost completely loses it when she realizes this is not the first time Stacy has killed him.

After the initial insanity of it all, like a true psychologist, Vera becomes fascinated with this phenomenon and soon is under Stacy's influence. We find that every time Stacy kills her boyfriend, when he is brought back she is able to shape his memories because he only remembers what they tell him. With each death and life situation, bizarre adventures and mishaps happen and both women seem to lose a bit of themselves.

Talk about a book that comes from another place. The concept of this book is completely unique in comparison to anything I have read. Mr. Bernard does not just throw an idea at his readers and leave them to put it together for themselves, he painstakingly walks you through this alternate reality. While this is completely needed, this reader grew anxious for him to just get to the point. His use of dark comedy is done well and the comic absurdity of some things that happen kept this reader from being completely disturbed by other events.

The title was what got my attention. In reading this novel I could tell this wasn't your typical novel. All I can say that if your a person that is more for reality--this book isn't for you, but if you have an open mind, this book is very interesting and different, I think you would really enjoy it. I did!!!

This one definitely takes you away from the average thug/love/down low stuff. It's truly imaginary and it'll give your mind a nice ride. I'd reccommend this to someone that likes variety...which is the spice of life....
