    "A surprise, and not in a good way..."

    From the blurb, I was expecting a noir-like tale of life-with-nanny gone terribly wrong, an account of a bucolic familial paradise devolving into sinister mayhem.

    However, this book is just a bunch of trendoid conversations and aspirational remarks approaching wittiness, with added observations on the elitist life.

    Not amusing, not enjoyable, with lots of "Old Boys Club" chats that seem dated, and to which I could not relate.
