    I started off really liking this book. It is about a woman, Stella, who has a deep fear of leaving her apartment she shares with her cat and boyfriend. She works as an aromatherapist from home so that she doesn’t have to leave. She can also constantly smell gas in the apartment, despite all the appliances being electric.I’ve always been really interested in books about people with mental disorders; it’s interesting to see the world through a new pair of eyes. And this particular one started out very strong, and I suppose on the whole it was a very good book. But I suppose the ending just let me down a bit. It didn’t really flow the way I expected it would have. I wouldn’t have guessed it would end the way it did if you’d given me a thousand and one guesses.Still a good read, though.

    Strange psychological interactions between the first-person protagonist, Stella Lewis, and her live-in lover Ivan. Told in present tense, the spare construction aids the mysterious and often disturbing story.Stella, an agoraphobic aroma therapy specialist has her clients come to her small flat so she doesn't have to go out. She has an acute fear of gas, and had all the utilities changed to electric. Ivan was the gas man who removed all the pipes from her apartment. Their relationship is measured and strange, becoming even more so when Ivan reveals his obsessive compassion about a woman he loved (not carnally) two decades before. Stella's insecurities lead her to bizarre steps to learn about him, and keep him for herself.

    Delicious. A quick, satisfying read. Alone on an early page of the book:"The rules I made when he moved in:No stories from the past.No unnecessary anecdotes.No questions.'Suits me fine,' he said."Stella has life sorted meticulously. It works great, until it doesn't, until each part of her world begins to wrest itself from her grip. I loved the writing. This author had me on the very first page with this book that is part mystery, part portrait of an eccentric internal life, part straight-up literary fiction. Oh, there's a creepy-good sexual component, too. Recommended!

    This book is only 173 pages amd covers the span of five days. Stella is obviously a troubled woman, one that I wanted to shake a few times, but she was also a sympathetic character. The language was sparse, but beautiful and the book was a joy to read. I admit that I did not see the end coming. Which is part of my small problem with the book. The end seemed to come out of nowhere, with little warning. It felt a little off from the rest of the novel.there's more on my blog http://stacybuckeye.wordpress.com/200...

    Yellow is one of the most captivating, well-written books I've ever read. I'm still not totally sure what happened though.

    Bleh... I couldn't even muster up 3 stars for this book. Sometimes it's interesting to see inside the mind of a disturbed person, but not this time.

    Beautiful, spare writing that still manages to impart vivid detail. And if you enjoy reading about psychological dysfunction of any sort, you'll be hooked. I know I was!
