Item Description...
Jonathan and Barbara Rose seem to be the perfect couple--successful and devoted--until Jonathan collapses with what appears to be a heart attack and the underlying ugliness of their relationship erupts.

Publishers Description
Warren Adler is the acclaimed author of 25 novels, published in 30 languages. Two of his books, "The War of the Roses" and "Random Hearts" were made into major motion pictures. He lives in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and New York City. This is the book that became one of the most famous movies about divorce ever produced. Oliver and Barbara Rose thought they had a perfect marriage, only to discover that their relationship was barely skin deep. Beginning with destroying each other's most prized possessions, the relentless war they wage against each other eventually descends into brutality and then spirals uncontrollably into madness and chaos. The global impact of both the book and the movie, now considered classics, has brought the phrase "The War of the Roses" into the accepted jargon describing the terrible hatred and cruelty engendered in divorce proceedings. "Tight, unique, intimate fascinating and unusual." .West Coast Review of Books "A clever look at the breakup of a marriage frightening and revealing." .Washington Star "A very, very funny novel." .Pat O'Haire, New York Daily News "This book is a dazzler, the wildest, most outrageous, most macabre book we've read in years." .Richard Zanuck and David Brown, Film Producers

Reviews - What do our customers think?
how can this book be out of print  Mar 16, 2007
Very very funny book. Stayed up late, read it in one sitting, laughing all the way. NO way this book should be out of print. Dan has talent in the same league as Sedaris.
On the wrong track...  Jun 13, 2006
I have seen several reviews of this book which were negative. I have also seen the movie. The conclusion that I have come to is that most people--including the script writers--have missed the main point of the book.
The impression that I have is that everyone thinks this book is about the moral destruction that divorce can cause. Admittedly, there is a lot of this in the book. Still, I feel that the main point is that the moral destruction isn't caused by the divorce so much as it is the passion for material objects.
The Roses define who they are by what they own, and giving away any part of what they own must therefore diminish who they are. As a result, the only outcome of a property division is obviously a fight to the death. Not even the children matter as much. And the finale, with the children following the parents' footsteps, is truly chilling. One does indeed sympathize with Anne.
In the end, remember that this book was written in 1981. Don't read it as a black comedy on the horrors of divorce. Read it as a black comedy on the horror of the onset of the Yuppie phenomenon.
Cartoonish, yet disturbing novel on divorce  Jun 22, 2005
Warren Adler's book "War of the Roses" is actually not well written, but does manage to be disturbing enough. But the cartoonish and irrational escallions of the divorced couple was definately not believable. You feel very badly for the children and for Anne, as both Mr. and Mrs. Rose steam full ahead on a path of destruction which will doom them both. Only merits 2 stars
Negative, Realisitic, and Gritty, but the best book ive read  Jan 15, 2003
I was obsessed over the movie for a long time and when I read this book it had the same theme and characters but it was vastly different than the movie. The ending was almost the same, but it was shocking how much they did to each other. Everyone seems to think it was about materialism only. I disagree. It was about investing twenty years of your life and wanting something to show for it, and I think their anger and revenge stemmed more from an attitude of 'How dare you waste my life' or 'How dare you ruin our family' that it was more the main theme than the house. The house just happened to be caught in the crossfire. It definetly makes you think, and is by far one of my favorite books.
This book and movie changed my life.  Jul 22, 2001
It sent the message that material things can be dangerous in any relationship. I have read this book many times and each time I read it, it reinforces that idea.
