Trevor Lord, the producer of LA Candy, comes up with a new reality TV show called "The Fame Game". The show follows four young girls, who want to make it in Hollywood. A musician, an actress and Madison and Gaby from LA Candy.
The cover of this book is similar to the ones of the LA Candy Trilogy. An all black background with dark pink and white lettering. In the center is a crushed starshaped lollipop. Again a real classy cover.
The writing style of Lauren Conrad is again fun and easy but sadly the story was not as exciting as in the LA Candy trilogy. The reader finds out a lot about the new characters and also about Gaby and Madison, but the story lacks drama. A little unusual for 4 reality stars in Hollywood.
The two new charakters Kate and Carmen are total opposites. The one is a girl from a smalltown, who wants to become a musician, while the other is the daughter of a famous singer and music producer wanting to become an actress. Both girls are really interesting characters. Gaby is the same as readers already know her from LA Candy. Madison therefore shows a different side of herself.
I really enjoyed this book but as i mentioned above the story sadly lacked a little drama.
I have all the other Lauren Conrad books, they are my go to holiday reads. Had to stop my self reading it until I went on holiday which was hard, because I wanted to see where the story carries on. There are a few characters from the last series books, but the main leads from those are no longer in it. I would recommend reading the first three before getting into this one. It is just like watching a reality TV show really and sadly find myself gripped from chapter to chapter. This coming from someone who likes more adult fiction!It took me about five days of my holiday to read, and I was reading super slow in between sunbathing, normally probably could get through it in two nights! This isn't a book which will challenge anyone and you don't need to think when reading it but Lauren is a good writer you have to give her credit for that and when you think her target audience is under 20/ early 20's its not bad. I am slightly older but have been a fan of Lauren's since Laguna Beach when I was in my early twenties so sort of grown up with her!
Vor der Veröffentlichung der Fame Game Reihe, gab es L.A - Candy. Da ich bereits L.A. Candy ziemlich gelungen und durchaus unterhaltsam fand, beschloss ich auch die zweite Reihe von Lauren zu lesen.
Enttäuscht wurde ich nicht. Sicherlich die Handlungsstränge sind ähnlich ( wieder geht es um junge Frauen die ein Leben in Los Angeles führen und dabei von Reality TV Kameras beobachtet werden) aber es kommen neben einer alten bekannten ( Madison) neue und für mich durchaus interessante Charaktere hinzu.
Ich möchte nicht groß auf die Handlung rund um einzelne Charaktere eingehen, ich denke aber das jedem der spaß am verfolgen von unterschiedlichen reality Formaten hat oder einen kleinen Einblick in die Welt des reality TV haben möchte, dieses Buch durchaus gefallen wird. Für Fans von Lauren Conrad besonders interessant da teilweise leichte parallelen zu ihrem eigenen in The Hills dargestellten leben hat.
I was amazed to see another trilogy from miss Lauren Conrad fabulous read well written can't wait to read the next installment was a brilliant way to change it to show a strong character so vulnerable I wonder what happens next Recommended to anyone who loves a bit of girl bitching family worries and who genuinely loves Lauren Conrad
