What I liked about this book was that it was a fun read, in that it had a lot of juicy scandals and plots. But what I really did not like, and what ultimately makes me want to stop reading the book, is the writing style, the lack of creativity, and how silly some parts were. The writing style is so amateur it makes the Shopaholic series look like it was written by Upton Sinclair. Perhaps it's just because I don't like to hear slang words or swear words every 5 sentences. There was a lack of creativity. For example, this book is definitely the secrets of a soap opera diva because it is just that melodramatic and cliche.
The characters were so stock. The reader only has the option of loving or hating them. The villains were people who had NO good traits at all, unless you count the ability to willingly overdose on Viagra (Randall). The heroes were people who were built up to be great, awesome, and perfect. And it's just ridiculous. There were some parts of the book that made me think "Really, Victoria Rowell, really? Did you really just write that?"
It's a FUN book. Don't get me wrong.
But it is just a little too trashy. But at least it doesn't get boring... right?
I ordered this book after reading a few pages from it at Borders. But I wish I had looked over the book more carefully, because then I could've spent my money on something better.
