Preposterous at times, but lots of fun. No great message here, just a lot of intrigue and glamour. At times I felt sorry for the main character, at other times I found myself admiring her evil genius. Mira Sorvino does a great job reading, with credible impersonations of a variety of characters, both male and female. If you are looking for something light and entertaining, look no further.
I was hoping for the depth of Sex in the City to go with the glamour this book seemed to promise. But I didn't like the main character...I found myself rooting for bad things to happen to her.
If you are looking for a light, trashy read, this is it. The heroine is from one of her earlier books (four blondes, i believe). The content is comparable to reading "Cosmopolitan" or watching the OC or Melrose Place. Mira SOrvino did an amazing job in narrrating the book. A very easy book to listen to and great for traveling. It is by no means a brillant story, just an enjoyable listen.
