I must say, I've never come across a book like "Starlette" before. A war of cultural (and literal) survival is being waged between the mainstream entertainment industry and the classical literary world. The evil Bookworm has just completed a violent coup of the world intellectual scene, his minions having killed almost every actor and entertainment industry employee in one bloody, violent night. The few survivors of this holocaust have regrouped in an underground bunker known as The Studio, the ...more

What if almost everyone in the entertainment industry was killed in a single night by a psychotic villain by the dubious name of Bookworm? You'd have the opening events for a fascinating novel called Starlette -- one of the most unique books I've read in a long time.

On the night of a huge awards show, mass murder occurs, wiping out a whole host of likeable characters introduced in the book's opening chapter.

Holy Unorthodox Plot Twist, Batman!

Author Kyle Andrews makes up for it, however, by deliv

Loved, loved, loved this book. It was dark, silly, predictible(in a good way) and funny. It was one of those books that I didn't want to end. I chuckled to myself, laughed out loud and even shed a tear.

If this book was supposed to be humorous in any way, it misses the mark. If it wasn't supposed to be, it was unintentionally funny. I gave up in chapter two.

I will admit to being quite excited to read this book and it did not disappoint. It made me laugh and kept me entertained throughout the whole book. The "violent" moments were tastefully done and I felt the author wasn't adding this violence for a shock factor, but to add to the story. It was mocking and yet "honoring" the film industry, while "encouraging" reading (and by encouraging I mean if you were caught at the movies you'd die) Every chapter was well written to keep the suspense going and ...more

Thids was a cross between Ramble and The Truman Show. It was confusing at times because the author did not know whether he wanted satire or to make a statement.

The Bookworm minions and The Studio PTB seemed to have more in common with each other. However; if this is a failure it is an interesting failure.
