When Ryan O'Connell went to stay for a week at the glamorous Chateau Marmont hotel last summer, he didn't quite know what to expect. Would he become instant BFF's with Lindsay Lohan and do lines of coke off of John Belushi's ghost? Would he have vacuous sex in the hotel elevator with Benicio Del Toro, just like Scarlett Johansson once did during an Oscars after-party? Or would he just be really, really bored like Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning were in the movie, Somewhere?
The answer, it turned out, was none of the above. After spending seven days running around the hotel looking for drugs, sex, and expensive salads, Ryan realized just how bizarre the Chateau Marmont actually was. And after capturing what he saw there, he can pretty much guarantee that he'll never be allowed back in again. Chic.

A story would have been a good start.
Genre? Is there a genre of whiny personal journal highlighting the writer's expectations and personal shortcomings?
I feel sorry for the narrator. The author was probably too embarrassed to read his own work for the audio.
Boredom. You can her more entertaining stories listening to other's conversations at a Starbucks.
Save your money. If you must know what the Chateau is like, go and see for yourself. Or do something else you love. Live the life, don't listen to the book.
