I read this book for my Trash Book Club, where each of us got to choose our own Judith Krantz novel. In retrospect, I wish I'd picked one of Krantz's more 'famous' novels, such as Scruples or Princess Daisy or I'll Take Manhattan...but alas, I had purchased this novel at a used book store, and I figured a Krantz is a Krantz is a Krantz.

The novel is called Dazzle. So is the building in which the main character is employed. One would surmise, then, that the novel is about the place of work. No, it

This book has been sitting in my book shelf for probably 2 years. My aunt always gives me books she had read. I think I used to use Judith Krantz in my teens/young 20's. Just from reading the back of the book, I know it's below my reading standards of today. I like to think I have moved on since then, but I would also like to get it off my shelf and get rid of it at my next book exchange or a yard sell, so here goes.

Well, I got through the book, somehow, thank goodness! Talk about smut! Did I r

Inside the fun-filled photographers' studio in California known as Dazzle, Jazz Kilkullen reigns supreme. At twenty-nine, this playful, gifted, and thoroughly sexy woman has become one of the most successful celebrity portrait photographers in the world.

But her charmed career and her dashing private life, which includes three fascinating --- and fascinated --- men, are rocked when an unexpected tragedy leaves Jazz to battle her father's vengeful ex-wife and the machinations of her own half-siste

This book has disappointed me in so many levels... The characters are totally unrealistic, there is too much unnecessary information, and the story is totally over the top. But the thing that annoyed me most was the ending. Anyone could assume there was a happy ending but did it need to be so illogical and unreasonable? A total waste of time.

Mi è piaciuto tanto tanto. "Conquisterò Manhattan" non mi aveva convinto per niente, mentre con questo romanzo ho ritrovato la Krantz che conoscevo.
Sarà che adoro le saghe familiari in cui passato e presente si intrecciano, e la Krantz sa sapientemente narrare tutte le dinamiche del cuore, dall'odio all'amore, dalla vendetta al perdono, dalla sensualità all'indifferenza.
Fin da subito ho adorato Jazz, il suo caratterino e il suo attaccamento al padre e al ranch, davvero commovente. E poi mi pia

It took me three weeks to read this book, when I'd normally devour any Krantz book in a day or two. Enjoyable story, but either I've outgrown Krantz or just too busy to read these days. Maybe I need to unearth my copy of 'I'll Take Manhattan' again and reread it?

La signora della casa grande
Jun 01, 2009 Nan rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
Lots of California history in this book -- Why the Spanish Grants were created, how they were challenged and often broken up. A lot of this information tied in closely with the Louis L'Amour book I read last week (The Lonesome Gods). Amazing that I happened to pick up 2 very different books that were written years ago, and that both had California historical information that was so closely tied.
Reading the two books back-to-back made both better.
A glitzy 80's bestseller - lost of kinky sex, dazzling heroine, who does not know what she wants but its fun to watch her vacillate, a neat ending and an educational landowning story. A great beach read, certainly keeps your attention. Its clearly written by a very intelligent woman - I enjoyed all the detail about lawyers and transactions at the end which seemed real, unlike many female authors. Mind blowing, this book is not.
Not my favorite Krantz book, but a decent read. I always thought that as it was titles Dazzle it should have had more to do with photography. It seems that she dumped the Dazzle/Gabe/Phoebe/Sam storyline before it was completed to focus on the ranch. I also would've liked to see a more complete ending- Liddy's reaction for instance.

I had forgotten my book and needed something to read on public transport to and from work. This book was left in the teacher's lounge and so I took it. It is a OK read when you just need something and don't want to think. I found the characters flat and unbelieveable. Not on my recommended book list.

In the 80s this type of reading was exciting because it featured strong women doing what they wanted with their lives with a lot of money, glitzy clothes and SEX thrown in. It was hot stuff for its time.
Grabbed this from the book exchange shelf at work when I had nothing to read at lunch. Awesome 90's cheeseball novel full of sex scenes and tacky characters. Excellent dreck!

I think this one was my favorite. Of course, I haven't read anything by Krantz in about 15 years. Something tells me I should keep it that way!

One of those mindless books I read when I'm too busy to focus on quality literature.

Verbal porn, has no literate standards and lacked wit and humour! I call it "CHEAP"
