Editorial Reviews


Jersey Girl Book Reviews-top series of 2012 for Pam of Babylon!

A Critic's Pick on
"An intriguing first novel that revolves around a husband's death and hidden secrets.
Women's fiction with a touch of noir."

From the Author

Pam of Babylon came to me as a sort of fantasy, wondering what I would do if faced with the issues Pam faces after Jack dies. I am at the opposite end of the spectrum of reactions....I wouldn't be forgiving and embracing. But it was an intriguing thought.

2.0 out of 5 stars Badly in need of a good editor October 30, 2012
By Dina G.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am up to about 80% of the book, but have been dismayed by so many grammatical and other errors. "Led" is the past tense of "lead." "Shone" is the past tense of "shine," not "shown." Early on, it was stated that the daughter was to arrive at the Newark airport, and the son at JFK. A few pages later the aunt was picking up the daughter at JFK. There seems to be confusion between the usage of breath and breathe. "She took deep, slow breathes of the stinky air." Then later "..and then go out in public and breath on people all afternoon." And the words peek and peels: "Pam opened it and peaked in at her baby sister." Then "Seeing the snack bag and fruit peals." Perhaps some quirkiness in the word processing application changed some of the words' spellings, but editorial oversight should have found and corrected those mistakes. But then there was the matter of grammatical errors: "Everything about she and Jack was on the table." You wouldn't say "Everything about she was on the table," now would you? And then "Marie's heart sunk." Past tense of sink is sank, not sunk. I could go on with more, but you get the point. These errors have been a major distraction to me. Reading this book has been a chore, and I felt embarrassment for the author. However, I just kept slogging through, and will finish reading it, but I had to make these comments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful May 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I won the second book in the series from a giveaway, so the Author generously gave me the kindle edition of this book to read so I would be up to date. Thank you Suzanne Jenkins!! She is now one of my favorite authors, this book was so wonderful! It had me angry, sad, and then happy. Just what a good book does for you, it was a wonderful escape to another world. The lives of these women, so effected by this one man. The characters were so clear and detailed, the world around them was described so beautifully that I wanted to live at the beach with Pam myself. I am so excited to start the second book today! There are also parts of this book that were so surprising and gritty and touched me personally. This book had twists and turns that kept coming at you, keeping your attention and making it so hard to pit it down. It was unexpected, and great. I may have to re-read it to make sure I got it all! It's that good to me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Did we all read the same book? March 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's a reason why it took me nearly three and a half months to read something that would normally take 4-5 days. So let's start with the only positive thing I have to say. Ms. Jenkins can write. The story was easy to follow and there was nothing wrong or awkward with her language usage.

As for the story itself, the three central characters were a bunch of doormats. As all the dirty laundry aired (and there were some whoppers!), no one had a meltdown or breakdown. No one screamed, raged or carried on. They all just took it in their stride, as if it were perfectly normal. There was absolutely nothing normal about these circumstances, and while some people might be able to cope as was depicted in Pam of Babylon, it just didn't seem believable.

A woman, Pam, rushes to the hospital when she finds out her husband has had a fatal heartattack, only to find that his body has already been identified by his mistress, Sandra. So Pam decides they should be friends. And Sandra goes along with it. Throw into the mix Pam's selfish, clingy, jealous and whiny younger sister Marie, and I was left wondering how hard it would have been for the deceased, Jack, to convince these three to be sister-wives and all live under the same roof.

Sadly, the most interesting character, in my opinion, was the dead one. The glimpses into his youth were fascinating and helped explain (not excuse) his behavior. I know a sequel has been written, and I would like to learn more about Jack, but I just can't bring myself to read more about these simpering females. I really had to force myself to finish reading it, and even as I did so, I kept asking myself why. I guess I kept hoping something spectacular would come at the end that would make it all worth it. Although the sudden turn of events that occurred with only about 10% of the book to go did make it better, it wasn't enough to overcome the feeling that I wasted my time reading Pam of Babylon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but this book is so not real! May 26, 2013
By Dorothy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just got up to 25% of this book and had to stop or I would start getting seriously ill here. No lie.

While I have no question that this author can write, and write well she does do, the story is just not real or any where near real. The story flows about as smoothly as can be expected for writing about an after death of husband type thing, but it is oh so not real.

What wife, in her right mind, would be called to the hospital because her husband had a heart attack, find he is dead, and want to speak to the 'lady' who was in his room before her without wanting to hit the mistress right in the jaw or any other easily available appendage?????

And even if you did speak to her, this politically correct nonsense about 'let's be friends' and worry that the mistress had been going through grief too, crud is beyond the pale. Quite frankly, I don't care how many secrets Pam will discover about Jack as long as she keeps associating with his mistress in this manner.

As a character, Pam is a nut case and has no semblance of reality. Her dead husband jack has more validity than she does.

To the author I have to say, I am sorry dear. You seem to have a true writing talent, but your writing will only be read if the stories you write have some semblance of truth in them.
