    HATED IT

    First of all, I want to say I only gave this one star because I had to. If I could, I would've given no stars. Second, I have NEVER written a review for anything in my life, but this book was so awful, I felt compelled to get on here and write one. I can't even imagine why one person gave this book 5 stars, I wouldn't even give it one, but fool am I for finishing it and wasting my time! I can't believe Anna Maxted wrote this book! Maybe if you like horror novels, you would like this, but I don't even think if that is your thing, this is well written. She never delves into any other characters experiences or what is going on in their lives, except for the psychotic killer. She barely explored the relationship between the two characters that ended up together at the end. You felt like you only knew the characters on the surface, except for the whacko seriel killer, that character was explored ad nauseum. Two female characters were also more detailed, but one was not, and it felt off. AND WHAT IS WITH THAT COVER!? I love historical romances and chick lit-that's what I was looking for, and what this book was represented as! But it graphically described sex scenes of child molestation and disgusting, bloody murder scenes. There is barely any romance, and if there is, there's the killer to graphically, violently murder the character AND the romance. And if that's what you're looking to read, that's okay. But again, look at this cover! The person on the front should have blood dripping down her arms, or them cut off! That would be a good clue as to what kind of book this was. After I was done, I re-read the description on the back. Often when choosing a book, I don't read the whole thing, maybe just a paragraph or two, because I want to be surprised. It truly read like a chick lit story about a troubled family. This was just awful. I loved her first four books...but probably won't read anymore. I feel like I was duped.

    Courtesy of Flamingnet.com Teen Book Reviews-sexual atrocity

    "Rich Again" by Anna Maxted is as trashy as trashy gets.
    What little plot there is revolves around Emily, Claudia,
    their beaus, and their rich, estranged family members.
    Emily is obsessed with her crush and, being fourteen,
    readers don't think much will come of it. However, Maxted
    goes all out to describe horrifically grotesque [pre-
    marital] sex scenes with the minor. Additionally,
    Claudia's persona is that of a helpless woman whom needs
    fulfillment from a man for her existence and even obtains
    an eating disorder for said reasons. As the book
    progresses, there is some imminent danger as the family's
    rich empire is vaguely thwarted, but that ends
    predictably.

    There is so much risque material in this
    book that readers can skip a good sixty pages and not miss
    anything other than repugnant sex acts. Also, teen
    pregnancy is taken lightly in the book, with one part even
    discussing abortion as perfectly normal. Young girls may
    see the fashionable cover and think they are to read of
    glamorous escapades through boutiques, but that is not the
    case. Readers are better off dismissing all 462 pages of
    this atrocity and picking up something else that will do
    more for their self-image and vocabulary.

    Swearing, sexual scences, drugs, alcohol are present in this book.

    A fun romp

    This books was a fun quick read. I read it in one quiet rainy day and enjoyed myself immensely.

    I Also Recommend:

    Rich Again was a horribly disappointing book.

    I normally love Anna Maxted's books, but this book was so awful that I couldn't wait to be done with it. I was disappointed because her first four books were great but Rich Again was just awful. I do not recommend this book, but I do recommend her first four books. But, don't buy A Tale of Two Sisters because that book is boring to read.

    Not The Best

    The back cover summary of this book makes the book sound better than it is. I found the writing style of this book very hard to read and sometimes confusing. In my opinion the characters are very unlikable and overall this is a very dark, unhappy story.

    Ick

    I love Anna Maxted's writing. I also love how her books often start very breezy and girl-meets-boy, but end up addressing serious issues. However, I don't know what she was going for with this book. I couldn't finish it. It seemed to be turning into a horror novel, which is not at all what I want to spend my time reading.

    It is an enjoyable inane and insane family drama

    Headquartered in London, multimillionaire power couple, Jack and Innocence Kent, own a boutique in hotel chains. Their spoiled fourteen year old daughter Emily has decided she will have Lord Timothy and she always gets what she wants. Their older child Claudia was adopted by Jack and his late first wife Felicia, but she has issues.

    Two years later, Jack is nearly ruined by a financial scandal; only the quick work of not so innocent Innocence saves their fortune when she transferred his fortune to her. Tim gets Emily pregnant so they marry in Vegas, but his outraged father disowns him. To make shoe money, Emily sells gossip, mostly false, about her and her family to the tabloids. However, the past returns to haunt the Kent family when Nathan adopted by Jack and Felicia who returned when she died, has begun a killing campaign using his guise as a movie star to conceal his obsession to murder everyone Kent.

    This is over the top of Big Ben; but it is an enjoyable inane and insane family drama. The killer is cartoonish as he is never developed beyond his need for vengeance. The Kent family fare better as they seem three dimensional especially the way Emily makes a living. Rich Again is silly, overly padded, but decadently fun.
