The Seven Year Bitch book. I fell in love with Jennifer Belle while reading High Maintenance after its release in 2001 and that particular novel still resides in my permanent collection.

The vacuum cleaner had broken. I had crouched in front of it, feeling like a farmer with a cow. There was a tumbleweed of black hair and sequins in the canister. There was a tumbleweed of black hair and sequins in the canister d called a number and talked to a man who’d asked me if I remembered when I’d gotten it. September 2001, I’d said guiltily, wishing I had just thrown it out in the first place. In New York there is no better feeling on earth than dragging something out of your apartment into the incinerator room

About The Seven Year Bitch.

About The Seven Year Bitch. From the bestselling author of High Maintenance and Going Down comes a witty, heartfelt comic novel about marriage, motherhood, and discovering that the life you have is exactly the one you want. That’s New York author Jennifer Belle’s deliciously provocative phrase for the boredom, anger, and hurt that can creep into even the best of marriages-and affect even the most saintly of wives.

This book The Seven Year Bitch features the same dry humor, female lead, and NYC setting as her others. It's a good read if you're in need of a Jennifer Belle fix. However, I don't think this is her best book. It's still funny, with a good pace, interesting characters, and has some insightful moments. It's just not quite as amazing as her other works. Even so, The Seven Year Bitch is enjoyable and worth a read for Jennifer Belle fans

  • I just couldn’t really connect with the concept of losing my job and then not finding one and spending so much money on the nanny. I just don’t know. It’s far removed from my life, but I did enjoy reading it.

  • I used to love belle but I think I'm over her. I found the book to be dark but it didn't appeal to me the way her other ones did.

  • Jennifer Belles first 3 books are amazing and every sentence is to be savoured. Quirky, compelling, oddball and HIGHLY original what on earth has happened in this 4th book???? It is dire and that pains me to say as I was her biggest fan and have re-read the first 3 books over and over. Jennifer please write a 5th and go back to your wonderful compelling, strange scenes and characters that set your books so apart from the rest!! xxxx

  • I'm a huge fan of Jennifer Belle's novels -- Going Down and High Maintenance are two of my most favorite books ever. Jennifer Belle writes stories from the perspective of a strong, yet flawed, darkly funny female protagonist. This book The Seven Year Bitch features the same dry humor, female lead, and NYC setting as her others. It's a good read if you're in need of a Jennifer Belle fix. However, I don't think this is her best book. It's still funny, with a good pace, interesting characters, and has some insightful moments. It's just not quite as amazing as her other works. Even so, The Seven Year Bitch is enjoyable and worth a read for Jennifer Belle fans. I'm not a mother but I imagine that the main character in this book would really resonate with a certain type of 30-40something moms with a penchant for dry humor and inappropriate thoughts. This book is not bad by any means but readers who are new to Jennifer Belle should read her other books first, in my opinion.

  • Just stumbled upon this book (and this author) when I needed to download a quick read for a flight! I laughed all the way from Los Angeles to New York! Will be checking out Jennifer Belle’s other works!!!

  • This is not as funny and entertaining as her previous books. I am a die hard fan so I am somewhat disappointed, as I do not feel like this is a must read

  • This book is just a compilation of insignificant and uninteresting episodes of the protagonist's life. There is never any consequence springing from almost any of the episodes. The story doesn't really progress in any specific direction, it just piles up episode after episode. The protagonist looses her job, hires a nanny, goes to the country house, fights with her husband, likes Huggies and not Pampers. She and her husband get a water cooler, she meets a rich man from her past (original!). There is no consequence in what Belle writes. Also, one thing that's really annoying is that every other line the protagonist says it is followed by a "I didn't know why I was saying that", ALL THE TIME! And I counted at least ten times when someone "raised her/his voice an octave while saying...". Come on already.
    Also, this story SOOOOOOOO reads like an autobiography/memoir kind of thing. Jennifer Belle writes about her everyday life, you can feel that in every page, not about invented characters with an arc etc. It's just about writing what she knows without any effort I guess to make it into fiction and this cannot be called writing a novel. Everybody can write about going to the country house, buying Huggies, going to the park and buying an ice cream, chatting with an annoying "friend".
    Last but not least: the episode with the German couple that visit the protagonist and her husband in their country house: that scene COMPLETELY sounds like Jennifer Belle is getting back at someone who did (to her?) the same thing the couple do to the protagonist and her husband.
    Who publishes these kinds books?

  • Started to read it and thought what am I wasting my time on? And it went adios.
