This was one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a while. There were numerous plot lines but they all reconciled themselves by the end of the book. It brought together real people and fiction characters in a real and understandable way. You can't go wrong with this book.
Couldn't get into this book. Read until page 80 and gave up! Boring.....
I had trouble getting started with this book. It could not hold my interest, but I decided to complete it and I glad I did. Once all the people and places fell into place, it was a great read and captivated me completely. Did not end at all as I expected.
I think that I liked this more than most I've talked to about this book. Yes, most of the characters were self-absorbed and a bit annoying at times but I found it a bit amusing when these characters collided getting in each others' way. "They deserved each other," I told my mother who was also reading this story and was finding their selfishness tiresome.
Though I understand why one might feel indignant toward these annoying people on behave of the few redeeming characters that found themselves hindered by the plethora of 'take, take, take...' personalities. I actually was pleased to see that the more likable characters simply moved on. They took the knocks, said, "to hell with this", and found a way step away on their own terms. It was refreshing.
