As an avid follower of the antics of both Paris and Nicole, it was only logical that I was going to find this book eventually... and I'm really glad that I did! In it Nicole tells a semi autobiographical story of drugs and the high life in America's high society. I know that many of my friends were sceptical of me reading this book... it's not intellectual I know. But Nicole does write an easy to follow book and her language does create vivid scenes of LA nightlife. I would say, give it a go, everyone should read a frivolous book every now and then!

The people who are giving this book 1 & 2 stars were obviously not Nicole fans or were searching for a "best selling novel" This book is Nicoles version of an autobiography but she didn't want to join the ranks of stars who write their autobiography before they hit 30. It really tells you about the LA Party Circuit and offers some juicy secrets about Simone who infact is Paris Hilton. I loved it.

This is the type of book that you just can't put down. I read it in a day and a half and loved every minute of it. There is ALOT of name dropping of recent celebs but it seems to fit with the theme of the book and the way it's written. Written from Nicole's point of view this book is about drugs, fame, fortune and make-up! Not exactly an interlectual novel but it's a sweet read with some heart-rending moments about her own life. Good if you are a fan of celebrities, better if you are a fan of Nicole!

Being a fan of Nicole and The Simple Life I thought this book was fab. Some parts of it are clearly based on her own life and it's fun working out which characters are based on which real people. Great to read if you're a Nicole fan, probably not so good if you're not!

As a fan of Nicole's quirky style and humour, I was left totally disappointed by her first 'novel'. As other reviewers have commented, the plot is flimsy, the characters are weak, self-obsessed and unlikable (including Nicole and her alter-ego Chloe).When reading this book, you're not really sure who you should be rooting for, if anyone. This makes the book a chore to read.
What also makes this book hard to stomach are the teenage-style language used, and the nauseating phrases. Richie uses such imaginative languare as 'stinky' to describe here nasty boyfriend, and our 'heroine' uses phrases such as:
"I may not be judemental, but I can judge mentals."
without a hint of irony, or humour. This book is tacky in every possible way.

I love this book. Every chapter is very well written, and Nicole has done a great job in describing her own personal feelings and things she has gone through in her life. Of course it's not Oxford english, but hey, what can you expect? She's not a writer either, just a sweet and normal girl.

This is a brilliant book. Maybe i'm biased as a die hard fan of Nicole but if you figure out who Simone, Mikaela & Carrie are then there's some juicy & entertaining scoops on them! Loves it.
If you dont know who they all are then let me just say Simone = Paris. ;-)
I love this book so much that I dont want it to finish & I hope the rumours are true about her maybe doing another book.
Nicole is truly talented - a writer, singer, model & fashionista...... I love her even more with this book.
I dont know what the previous reviewer was talking about saying the pics were "tacky & narcissistic" - sounds like jealousy to me!!!! The pics inside were well worth the money (as if the book itself wasnt already!) Glossy, glamourous & "Hollywood" - I want them displayed on my walls!

I bought this book because I really like The Simple Life. I was not disappointed! This novel is a great, easy read especially for those who are interested in celebrities and their ups and downs. It is also a good read for those who love LA, movies and music (lots of references to places and people, etc.).
