Format: Paperback
If you find the works of Ezra Pound too prosaic and the collected poems of T.S. Eliot rather fluffy around the edges, and of course one has already read Ulysses and Absalom Absalom!, then here is a stunning modernist drama which may, if I can be so blunt, captures our modern zeitgeist in its most purest essence. With subtle twists and dark turns that leaves the reader ruminating on their very existence, I find it hard to believe that this book did not win the Man Booker Prize!

With straight forward, strict syntax (that is reminiscent of Hemingway) and portmanteau, such as "no-strings-attached sex" which brings Joyce to mind, this is truly a force to be reckoned with in our modern age, and will surely add its author's name to the hall of literary greats. For each page is bursting with rich observation on the complex lot of humanity: "'Babe!' he called out as soon as he saw her. Sapphire gave him her WTF look." And awe consuming description that reminds us that empirical philosophy is still alive and well: "Jay got up. At six foot two he was a fit guy in all senses of the word. He was a personal trainer, had biceps that Sapphire adored caressing, abs of steal, the cutest bum and long muscular legs. Look wise he resembled Wentworth Miller from Prison Break." Characters that make Faulkner's look like mere cardboard cutouts and a story line that can only be described in one word: gripping. This truly is a wondrous piece of fine art.

I find no flaw in this devastatingly good novel and I urge all of humanity to rush out and buy this masterpiece and sink with me into the cesspit of our rotting and moribund culture. In the dilapidated houses of our broken economy you will find this book, in the cluttered bedrooms of our disaffected youth this book will loom its hideous face of brilliance, and, once you breathlessly put it down after the final page, in your soul is where it will linger for all time.

This wasnt my favourite in the series of 'Katie Price' novels but it is still good and like the others in the series I would reccommend it as fun, light, beach-reading.

I thought the main characters were likeable, and the story has that 'page-turning' effect. Some characters from the previous books, Cal and Simone, appear in this book. I was half-expecting Angel to feature at some point too but she doesnt; which was perhaps a good thing because even though Angel is my favourite character in these books I think it may have been overkill to include her in every single book.

One word describes this book, that word is 'Shallow'. A book written for shallow, thoughtless, uninspired people by a shallow, thoughtless untalented person.

I've never read a Katie Price book so i thought I'd buy this book to give it a go. Wanted to give up by the middle of the book but hung on in until the end. Feel gutted that I wasted my money on something so trivial. Its not exactly gripping. It felt really superficial and was dull.
Do people actually buy this rubbish? I think this is probably the last time i read anything by KP...she's so 5 years ago. I personally prefer the Louise Bagshaw type of story or Sophie Kinsella for a summer read.

I just finished reading the book and thoroughly enjoyed it but thought there was something that let the book down. The story is fab; I just couldn't put it down, and for me that is something as I am really not a big reader. However, I have no idea who proof read this book, it was appalling. I just finished school and could have done a better job, many speech marks have been left out, which is fair enough but also at one point Cal Bailey was called 'a one-man woman'!! Also someone was asked the question 'How you?' which took a couple of minutes to work out it was meant to be 'have you?' and also there are missing words...important words to a sentence. 'She fab doesn't she?' Loosely translated as 'She looks fab, doesn't she?'
Basically, the story is great but I didn't expect to see such awful mistakes in a book by 'The number 1 best selling author'!!
Definitely worth a read though and follows suit with Angel, Angel uncovered and Crystal...looking forward to buying Paradise now.

Not a bad guilty pleasure novel, not in the same league as the angel series but still an addictive read with plenty of issues that we can all relate to! Great holiday read or guilty pleasure on a Sunday afternoon!
