    Amazingly enough - A good read!

    BUT, THERE IS THAT VOICE!

    It's that voice, the soft dulcet tones that can frame a threat as easily as an endearment. It's the voice that drove Blake Carrington to distraction on TV's "Dynasty." No one could read the words of Joan Collins as truly as the actress herself, and so she does. Granted, those words are a bit of fluff, but who doesn't need ear candy once in a while? Gorgeous and red-headed, Millie McClancey is the product of famine ravaged Ireland. She's poor but star struck, and she makes it big on the stage. As a matter of fact, she's the first of four generations to do so. Following in their turn are her daughter, Vickie, and later her granddaughter, Lulu. Each, of course, leads a tumultuous life fraught with love and danger. "Star Quality spans the generations from early 20th century London to Broadway today, while Collins spices the years with sex, secrets and success. Predictable? Yes. But, there is that voice.

    A Guilty Pleasure

    Okay, it isn't Jane Austen, but do we really expect it to be? Joan Collins' starry saga follows the usual formula: women who are impossibly glamorous, famous, wealthy, beautiful, talented - who overcome temporary adversity so they can continue to be glamorous, famous, etc. It was unfortunate that I chose to read this book during an icy December week - I really should have been sitting on the beach. It's that kind of book, and great fun.
