Save your 7 dollars... 9 gennaio 2007
Di Lawyer Barbie - Pubblicato su
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.

Want to laugh? Watch The Simple Life instead 5 luglio 2005
Di Sunny Dae - Pubblicato su
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.
So Condescending I'm Nearly Speechless 4 marzo 2009
Di Genie In A Bottle - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I normally don't mind a little political incorrectness - especially knowing I'm reading fiction. But wow, this one is just so over the top it leaves me nearly speechless. All that bashing left a sore spot, but what really did me in (besides the numerous one-sided phone conversations) was the condescension. Who treats people like that anyway?
Horrible 15 ottobre 2007

This is the worst book I have ever read. I got it from the library, thank goodness so I didn't spend any money on it. I was offended by the stereotypes of poor minorities and rich white (and everything in between). It was wordy in a way that things that could be assumed had to be written for some reason. It was predictable and halfway through I started skimming just to get to the end in hopes of finding out that the grandmother did take their checks away forever and that the twins were living on the street.
Sisters finding their own way 9 giugno 2007
Di Courtney Rabideau - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
London and Madrid La Mira are the twin daughters of an ultra rich man. They have never had to work for a living, get what ever they want and are generally spoiled rotten. Then there grandmother does something to change them. She cuts them off. She used to give them five or six figure checks for Christmas for them to blow, but instead she desides to hand over their clubs to the managers and make them actually work to know what real life is like.

After some funny setbacks London and Maddy decide to do something different. Will it work out? Will they be better people? Read The Perils of Sisterhood
