To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First of all, let me start off by saying that A) I'm not a teenager, so perhaps not the target audience, and B) I bought this in the Kindle Reading Marathon sale for 99p (a steal!).
I have been waiting to read this book for a little while now, as being a fan of Laguna Beach and The Hills, I wanted to see if Lauren Conrad could actually produce a decent book. And she can! It provided an interesting insight into how these types of reality shows are filmed.
The best element of the book were the characters. They were well-rounded and I became engrossed in the plot because of them. I did have trouble believing that Scarlett could be allowed to film without brushing her hair or putting on make-up but thats not a really important fact. I believed in the Jane/Scarlett BFF, and Madison was fun to read about purely because she was so scheming. It was hard to warm up to the Braeden character though. I felt there could've been more for Gaby to do too.
I finished this is a day as it wasn't too long and had a good time reading something light after getting through some pretty heavy books recently. I immediately purchased the next two straight after this one. A fantastic light read!
I never used to watch 'The Hills' but i knew who Lauren Conrad was and i was curious to see if she could actually write, it was an ok read, very simple and very pop culture. I liked the storyline but it was too simply written, but i did buy the following 2 books to see what would happen. Overall i would recommend this to all teenage girls who love reality tv or are really into pop culture!
I loved watching the Hills and I love Lauren too, so when I first saw this book, it was a must have! It's an excellent book, a real page turner. It's a lot like the Hills, so fans of the Hills will love it. Would recommend it to anyone! I've just bought this for my best friend's birthday too and she loved it.
I must admit i did only buy this book as i was a big fan of Lauren Conrad on the hills, i wasn't expecting much from it but it was a really great read. It's really well written and has a great cliff hanger at the end which had me desperate to read the second book! It is a really great read and if the thought of buying a book written by yet another celebrity turned writer is putting you off don't let it, this is a brilliant book.
Its the kind of book where once you've read it you never want to read it again. No offence I am a massive hills fan and was intrigued to see lauren conrads book. But this is literally the same life story of any teenager dream.
And worst of all the style in which is written is definitely lacking.
I've watched the hills for a while now and my favourite character was lauren. after learning that she wrote fictional books i was debating for a while whether to buy or not. But i did and they are amazing ! All of the books are so addictive and entertaining. Also, some of the characters are based around the hills' cast which makes it good also as you can try and guess who is supposed to represent who. Overall, amazing purchases, i would recommend to anyone!
