The writing was like some lyrical prose in parts of the book that held me captive. I actually didn't think I would like this book, it wasn't my kind of story line, but I was hooked from the opening pages, and it didn't disappoint. Her symbolysm and anologies I thought were awesome. Yes the ending was too trite for me, but this book was that good until the end, that I can even over look a normally massive failing. All in all, it has become a favorite. I can't say yet whether or not its a favorite that will get reread, but it's definitely one that will be remembered positively, and that I recommend to any woman.

Very very good. There aren't word to describe this book. At the beginning, it may seem that it's just the typical Hollywood mush but that all adds to the underlying story. Once you get halfway, you won't be able to stop reading. It's a very easy read and is very enjoyable. The good guy comes out on top in the end.

I originally started reading "Maneater" by the same author, but the book was so atrocious I didn't finish it. I decided to give the author a second chance with this book and was pleasantly surprised. Formulaic to be sure, but well written and entertaining.

I loved the descriptions of life in California, the bizarre situations that are "normal" there, and how unglamorous it can get. The denouement was a bit too fairy-tale like for my tastes, but in its own way, shows how influential a Hollywood ending can be.
