Funny, true to life story of what happens in the world of instant celebrity.
This was just ok. It was a very quick read. The story was very cute and parts were very funny, but it wasn't the greatest book I've read this summer. If you only have a few credits I'd pass this up, but if you have some to spare this might be worth a read.
Not the typical chick-lit type of book, which was nice and it was a quick and funny book to read. The way things turned out for the main character was great, very amusing.
A cute, brainless book - great read when you need to get your mind off something but can't concentrate too hard on your book!
Quick, light read. Won't provoke much deep thought, but you'll enjoy it if you watch a lot of reality TV.
This book was very funny and an easy read. Not much to have to figure out....just fun.
Very cute book! Fast, funny read!
Very funny book - enjoyed it and very light reading:)
very funny and a unique storyline
Very cute book - cute way to reference the Do You want to be a Millionaire show! Very cute story:)
Different then I'm use too, was hard to get into, cute ending though.
Funny story that is almost too true!
This was a really cute book. If you like Bridget Jones's Diary type books...this is for you. I must warn you...it was hard to put down! Very entertaining and easy to ready.
Very cute story about a girl who is dumped on a TV show like
Who wants to be a Millionaire" and how her life changes because of it.
I enjoyed it alot.
I read about 50 pages and couldn't get into it. It kept on losing me and I didn't feel like trying to figure it out.
Quick, funny chick-lit read.
This timely media spoof focusing on a parody of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" is read with style and aplomb by veteran narrator Mary Peiffer. Peiffer charges 30-something heroine Marcy Mallowitz with energy and emotion. When Marcy is dumped on live TV by her orthodontist boyfriend for giving him the wrong answer, she becomes a media darling, sought after by Diane Sawyer, Rosie O'Donnell, even Oprah Winfrey, and others. Fast-paced and funny, Samuels's story and Peiffer's performance team up to sweep listeners into today's frantic world in which the media creates TV stars out of ordinary people
*** (three stars)
A quick, mindless read -- like junk food or TV. Three weeks in the life of a 34-year-old woman who appears on "So You Want to Be Filthy Rich!" (a thinly-disguised "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?"). The show is hosted by a very Regis Philbin-like Kingman Fenimore, who wears monochromatic dark shirts and ties and also hosts a morning chat show called "Gabbing! With Kingman and Tracy Ellen." Published in 2001, this book is really dated. And some of the multiple-choice TV trivia questions that open each chapter are laughably easy:
What line of work was George Jefferson in?
What was Thurston Howell III's wife's name?
