Awful. I'm sure some of the things in this book are factual; however, the imagined conversations are deplorable. On the back of the book: Blue Moon: Applying the tabloid standards of today to the courtesans of America's imperial past. As the tabloids have no standards, reader beware.

I don't know how much of the conversations or details are true, I assumed this book was a true non-fiction until I read the other review saying most of it is imagined. On the other hand, I found the book hard to put down, and I consider myself reasonably intelligent. It is full of stories about Hollywood life, involving the Gabors of course, but they seem to be everywhere in Hollywood. I admit I am quite amazed about the quantity of sexual activity that took place, if the book can be believed. It's amazing so few of those written about actually died of an STD. I feel the book is very entertaining. My only criticism is that there are not many larger photos of the Gabors - they are given a smallish square photo at the beginning of each section and that's all. There are a lot of photos (one each) of other people mentioned in the book, so the book is full of photos.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
