Descrizione del libro

maggio 2005
Meet Madrid and London La Mira, identical twins, party girls, fashion statements, paparazzi darlings, and the richest pampered princesses who ever carried around a Yorkie in a chartreuse Kate Spade handbag. They know a lot. Well, they know a lot about Gucci sunglasses and how to get your picture in the papers along with those little black censor bars over your...oh, never mind. They also know how to drive each other crazy, their love/hate relationship splayed all over the tabloids for all to see. Thank God they live on opposite coasts and only have to be around each other for three days at Christmas, when their checks are handed out. But not this Christmas. Tired of their outrageous, selfish ways, Maddie and Lonnie's beloved grandmother has issued a decree: become decent, caring, responsible citizens by your 30th birthdays or you'll never get another dime as long as you live. Homeless, broke, and totally clueless-with every reporter salivating to write about their downfall - Maddie and London have no one to rely on but each other, a fate worse than wearing a size eight. Now, while staging fashion shows at the Salvation Army, using the wrong nails at Habitat for Humanity, further endangering the endangered species, and leaving chaos in their manicured wake, they're on a mission to get their money back that will take them on a detour through hilarity on the often-bumpy road to redemption.

1.0 su 5 stelle Save your 7 dollars... 9 gennaio 2007
Di Lawyer Barbie - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I generally do not write reviews but I was incredibly offended by the book, so much so that I stopped reading it about 3/4th's of the way through. What had the potential to be a funny book is only marginally humorous, but for a light beach read I think this would be ok if it weren't for the ignorance it contains. Here are a few "choice" excerpts:

"..Never employ minorities, it makes you look racist. Even though we're better than all those african americans, hispanics, iranians..and God knows what other riff raff the Democrats are letting into this country....even though Mexicans are the BEST at landscaping"

From a black man in the book who is apparently stuck in slavery times in 2006:

"Bo knows a story. 'Bout how a turtle be beating a rabbit in a race. The rabbit he be fast, the turtle, he be slow. But de bunny done take itself a nap and de turtle crawled on right by him while he be snoozin'....Bo likes dat dere story"

There is no excuse for that and this book is not worth the read.

1.0 su 5 stelle Want to laugh? Watch The Simple Life instead 5 luglio 2005
Di Sunny Dae - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
The fun of Paris Hilton is in the guilty pleasure we take in laughing at her. So a novel that shamelessly rips off Ms. Hilton's cluelessly priviliged lifestyle, right down to her geographical name, would work best if it was a laugh out loud satire. Unfortunately, The Perils Of Sisterhood is not. It plods predictibly along through a weak plot in which London and Madrid La Mira, twin sisters and heiresses to billions, are cut off from their annual $850,000 checks by their grandmother, who decides that they need to learn the value of money. We get the obligatory scenes of the dim witted siblings messing up every attempt to win back their grandmother's favor by doing good for others (killing endangered sea turtles, being grossed out by the needy in a soup kitchen, being fired from volunteer work building houses for the homeless after wondering aloud where the pool is going to go) until finally, both find their true calling - London as a chef, and Madrid as a matchmaker - which makes them better people and clearly deserving of their fortunes.

Not only is The Perils Of Sisterhood not funny, it borders on offensive with over the top stereotypes of gays, blacks, and <gasp> unattractive people. Madrid's gay friends shriek, giggle and sashay their way through every scene they're in, every black character talks like an episode of Amos 'n Andy, and the heavyset woman who is looking for love is loud, crass, and uneducated. I almost put the book down in disgust more than once without finishing it. I should have, since it never did redeem itself. Don't waste your time.
4.0 su 5 stelle Beware of the Purse Dog Princesses 26 gennaio 2007
Di Beverly - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Though actually, I don't think any purse dogs *were* featured in the book.

If you're fascinated by trendy parties and the misdeeds of spoiled celebrities, you'll probably get a kick out of this book. IMO, it was an interesting world to visit, even if I wouldn't want to live there. (No matter how big my annual check was!)

While the sisters started and stayed rather unlikeable quite far into the book, by the end they showed definite signs of becoming human. I thought Gamma Angel was great, though I did wonder what took her so long to put her foot (and pen) down.

At least in fiction, there's hope that ANYONE can turn her life around!
1.0 su 5 stelle majority rules 24 aprile 2007
Di Talitha J. Walke - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
i have to agree with the majority on this one. the book had such great potential, but when the very first page had a woman talking about getting off while riding in a limo and had several swear words, i should have known. i didn't like any of the characters, it was very predictable, and the stereotypes were very offensive to me. there was only one thing i predicted that would happen that didn't and by that time, i didn't care.

the book was too talky, using long boring conversations to move the story along. i'm not a writer, so i have no idea how it should have been done, but this is obviously how NOT to do it.
