One house. Forty strangers. Add vodka and stir . . .
Every summer, scores of Manhattan twentysomethings take part in an annual ritual with a camp-like culture distinctly its own: the Hamptons sharehouse. When Rachel and her two best friends buy their shares for twenty times each of their bank balances, they're imagining days filled with lazy suntanning and classy clambakes and nights spent rubbing shoulders with the Olsen twins and other celebrities. But once they arrive at 1088 Montauk Highway on Memorial Day weekend, they find that the reality falls a bit short. What looks like any other million-dollar mansion--on the outside--plays host to drunken escapades, explicit nudity, hot tub hookups, hideous hangovers, and juvenile mischief on the inside. As housemates jockey for limited bathroom time and beer pong mania takes over the house, Rachel finds herself wondering if it's possible to find true love--or even just survive the summer--in The Hamptons.

Quick read! It helps that I’m from Long Island familiar with both the Hamptons and house shares. I found this to be entertaining and written well (two things I don’t often say together about a book!).

I spent two summers (and one winter) in the Hamptons many years ago, although not in one of the houses as described in "How the Other Half Hamptons". Ms. Rosemberg captures the party scene of the weekend Hamptons visitors and creates fun and vibrant characters, but unless you are a 20-something Manhattanite who has the endless flow of money to get continuously inebriated and hook up constantly with various conquests than I wouldn't recommend the book. I did not find the book as enjoyable as I did the title.

The title of the book totally got my attention. From reading the first page the book kept my attention. This is a funny, interesting summer read. It reads very fast because there is a lot going on and you can't wait to turn the page to find out more. It's a great peak into the lives of New Yorkers and how they spend their summers.

The quintessential summer beach read! And what perfect timing! If you enjoyed authors such as Jane Green, Lauren Weisberger and Emily Giffen, you will LOVE this too! The characters are likeable, funny and easy to relate to. Rosemberg's prose is witty and eloquent! I highly recommend this book! What a great way to start my summer!!!
