    Story
    (18)

    As a teenager on the streets of San Francisco, Alison is discovered by a photographer and swept into the world of fashion-modeling in Paris and Rome. When her career crashes and a love affair ends disastrously, she moves to New York City to build a new life. There she meets Veronica: an older wisecracking eccentric with her own ideas about style, a proofreader who comes to work with a personal "office kit" and a plaque that reads "Still Anal After All These Years".

    Paul says: "I Want to Listen to This Again"
    "tired characters, dull book"
    Overall

    I tried several times to get through this book, but after listening to half of it and seeing no indication that it was going to improve, I gave up. I wanted the characters to be people I could identify with or at least appreciate in some way. But instead, they were tired, self-obsessed, and self-pitying. I think the narrator could have done more to make this a listenable book, but I don't think any narrator could have saved it for me. There wasn't much of a plot; it was more just descriptions of events in the character's life. It seemed like the author was trying to startle the reader with the blase way her character looks back on a risque life. Instead, it was just dull.
