First off if you weren't into "The Hills" you will not like this book! If you were a fan, then it's pretty much like watching an episode with behind the scenes footage. Personally I found it more likeable to read about it than watch it. Quick, fun, beach read.
Very quick read, and no depth to any of the characters, this book lacks a major component to a novela real plot. But oh wait, its loosely based on The Hills. Ok, ok. I tune into The Hills for my weekly dose of mindless television and guilty pleasure, but lets be honest, is the show really about anything? Not unless you consider who is dating who, what new trends are in the stores and where these people eat their meals substance. And that is about as much as you will get out of this novel from Lauren Conrad.
Dont get me wrong, I like Lauren Conrad, but this book is clearly written for girls under the age of 18. After the age of 18, one can consider this book fluff reading for those looking for a quick poolside read. If you arent a teenage girl, I dont recommend this book for you. Entertaining? Sure, about as much as The Hills. Great novel that keeps you turning the pages anxiously awaiting what will happen? Not so much.
I read this book in the course of several hours. Conrad has first hand knowledge of being a reality tv star and with her insight combined with the with realistic plot makes one eager to tear through this book. I began reading as soon i got home from work yesterday and finished at about 1AM. The resolution of the book leaves you with a cliffhanger that I had to buy the next book earlier today. I was surprised at how much I liked this book. As i know that i personally never read a book twice and will just collect dust on my shelf, I almost feel saddened that I am to part with this book and post it for someone else to enjoy.
