    Story
    (61)

    Over the course of a year, the members of the now infamous Bling Ring allegedly burglarized some of the biggest names in young Hollywood. Driven by celebrity worship, vanity, and the desire to look and dress like the rich and famous, these seven teenagers made headlines for using Google maps, Facebook, and TMZ to track the comings and goings of their targets. Many of the houses were unlocked. Alarms disabled. A "perfect" crime - celebrities already had so much, why shouldn't the Bling Ring take their share?

    Grandspud says: "Facinating Account of American Culture Gone Wrong"
    "Badly written, badly narrated."

    Story
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Huge distraction. Had clearly not pre-read the book. Frequent pronunciation errors, stumbles and zero flow to the reading.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Interesting story, but written with all the style and much of the content of a high school term paper. Incessant citation and date inserts nuked any narrative flow.
