    " Starting to wonder if anything in L.A. is real. I really didn't care for the book, I thought the plot was a bit meaningless. And the girl, ugh, why is she so helpless?? She was brave enough to trek to LA on her own but now she seems unable to carry on through life without the help of a man?? And the men...what a stereotype! I really do think now that those that live in LA/Hollywood are so encapsulated that they start thinking the only way to live is in a fairy tale. "

    " Lots of sex-talk and f-bombs, but I finished it because I found the main character intriguing and wanted to see how life worked out for her. "
