Not what I expected
A book about someone who is really into books, sounds like something that I could sink my teeth into. Howwever, despite the constant referrals to great authors and great books, I found the main characters and the whole story to be rather shallow. A woman who goes on weekend long bookbenders needs to have botox? Maybe I just don't get it since I don't live in LA.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I really wanted to like this book, as I can relate to Dora losing herself in books and going on binges, but she just wasn't sympathetic. I mean really...she didn't have to worry about money, was skinny and beautiful, and shopped like there was no tomorrow! How can you relate to a woman like that? Plus, I got the impression that if you didn't agree with Dora's choice of titles, you weren't a 'real' bibliophile. I can't stand book snobs, and Dora started to annoy me after awhile. So while I liked the premise, I didn't like Dora or the author's attitude. Borrow it from your library if you must, or wait for the paperback. Not worth the price of a hardcover.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
