Helpful Score: 4

This has been added to my "guilty pleasures" shelf: it's entertaining, easy to read, and provides an indulgent glance into a life I will probably never experience. Although this was published over 40 years ago, the story line is not dated. Things have changed since Jacqueline Susann penned this drama, but the novel's overall themes and the main characters' misadventures are still relevant to those of today: sex, marriage, success, drugs, social status, money, greed, happiness; all are questioned and toyed with in "Valley of the Dolls."
