    1. Ήθελα να διαβάσω Simenon αλλά να μην "μπλέξω" με τον Maigret γιατί θα με πιάσει το ocd μου και θα έπρεπε να διαβάσω το πρώτο κτλ κτλ κι όποιος με καταλαβαίνει, με καταλαβαίνει.To βιβλίο αυτό είναι μια απλή ιστορία ενός ερωτικού τριγώνου που "οι γωνίες" του αλλάζουν. Αυτό που είναι καλοδο [...]


    2. The book was written in 1958, but the scene Simenon sets in Cannes is probably that of the 1930s. It's amazing to see how he creates the atmosphere of a sleazy nightclub, and gets inside the heads of the 'working girls'. One of the best scenes shows the terrible feeling of loss felt by one of the girls after she loses the heel of a shoe, from her one good pair of shoes, while dancing with a client. In some ways it's a pity that Simenon became best known for his pot-boiler Maigret novels, and tha [...]


    3. Για πολλά μπορεί να κατηγορήσει κανείς τον Σιμενόν, για φτήνια και μισογυνισμό, ας πούμε. Δύσκολα μπορεί κανείς ωστόσο να τον κατηγορήσει για κακή γραφή. Μεγάλος μάστορας. (στα ελληνικά από εκδόσεις Άγρα biblionet/book/202332/S )


    4. My second Simenon, the other being one of his Maigret novels. This is an interesting book with just the right touch of pulp. The way Simenon describes these women is sort of chauvinistic. Still, I'll let that slide because I see this novel as a study of a micro-cosmos, a millieu. It's set in the red-light district of Cannes where a lot of people have a dirty job. However many of these people, especially the girls, a complex characters. Often they have a backstory wound, something terrible that h [...]


    5. Ένα από τα 'σκληρά' μυθιστορήματα του Simenon. Υπάρχουν πολλοί νικημένοι απο τη ζωή και ελάχιστοι νικητές, κι ενώ δεν υπάρχει φόνος υπάρχει μια παροδική επιθυμία - παρόρμηση που όμως δεν υλοποιείται με αποτέλεσμα την ολοκληρωτική ήττα"Είχε συνείδηση ότι ήταν αληθινή γυναίκα, ε [...]


    6. Αστυνομική πλοκή ούτε κατά διάνοια. Όμως οι πινελιές της ψυχογράφησης είναι τόσο λεπτές και γοητευτικές που το μυστήριο μπαίνει σε πολύ δεύτερο πλάνο.


    7. Set in the South of France, this story follows the lives of a few cabaret club dancers. When an amateur performer joins the club, Celita- a seasoned professional has her doubts. The club is a bit run down and has difficulties drumming up business made all the worse by the egotistical womanizing owner. All in all, this book lacks drama and the reader finds herself feeling sorry for the characters. The cabaret is anything but glamorous.Strip-Tease was a quick read, less than 200 pages, but I'm not [...]


    8. Georges Simenon is best known for Maigret but he published scores of other novels - many of them tough, gripping and psychologically-penetrating dissections of small lives confounded by fate and circumstance. Ronald Frame dramatises a Simenon story set in a night club in Cannes in 1958. Celita is the mistress of the club owner - but she faces a younger rival for her lover's affections when he hires a sensational new dancer.


    9. I would not have read this had it not been a book club selection. Gratuitous sex disguised in a predictable crime drama with black comedy sprinkled throughout. Not my cup of tea. Then on top of it saw the movie afterward. Worse than the book.


    10. a book called striptease. Made into a major movie starring Penelope Cruz? Well either way- what do you expect?By "It was ok," i mean "I read the whole thing very quickly because I love trashy novels, but I don't my rating to reflect that little secret."




    11. Bleak. Not quite Patrick Hamilton levels of loneliness, but close. You know it's heading for a dark end and you hope there'll be some kind of compromise but there isn't.
