This was surprising

I'm not one for the simple life or paris or nicole but i do have to say this was a really good book. I read paris's book and found it horrible but this was a very good read and for anyone who doesn't like nicole should really read this to see how hard her life was.

Love books but NOT this one!

I hate to not finish a book and rarely do but this is one that I could not finish. It was awful. I like Nicole Richie and thought this would be an amusing read but instead found it to be poorly written and just a terrible read.

    the truth

    I love Nicole Richie and figured I'd love her book as well. This book was not all that it was made out to be, the truth is she should really stick to the spot light and not the book writing. The book is loosely based on her life, including many other characters that reflect other celebutantes. The book is good, just not great, it has an interesting story line with a good point, however it lacks anything greater than an 8th grade vocabulary and tends to drift off subject time to time...to time.

    story: great, writing: horrible

    Don't get me wrong, I loved this book. The story was a fun read. The writing on the other hand, was horrible. A 5th grader could have written this book.

    Pleasantly surprised

    When I first bought this book, I kept asking myself, ' Why are you doing this to yourself, and why are you paying the actual hardcover price for this?' But to my surprise the book was actually readable. Nicole Richie does have a unique speaking voice and if you are interested in books that are about the glamourous life, then this is the book for you. I think this book is geared to a much younger audience (16-25) but if you are a lover of books you can agree that there is a story line. Some parts were predictable, others parts were not. Didn't love it, but didn't hate it. I kind of want to know if she's a real writer now. guess we'll never know until her next project.
