    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?

    karyn says: "Fascinating listen"
    "Sad story of our celebrity obsessed culture"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the story but found that it jumped around a lot. I had a hard time following. It seemed out of order and I couldn't keep the characters straight.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not at all.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was monotone and it made me sleepy! It was hard to listen to for more than ten minutes at a time.


    Was The Bling Ring worth the listening time?

    I am glad I know the back story and I hope to see the movie soon, so yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I would have liked this better if it had been a different narrator.
