This book really brought out the cynical side of relationships and the nasty insincere side of wealthy people. Portraying the wealthy as manipulative conniving individuals who do nothing but use others for their own benefit... Well written but hopefully no one I know are really like this! I felt compassion for the narrator at the end, once you learn what the female characters have really been up to through the book.

This is a book that has remained unread on my shelves for years. I picked it when cleaning out my bookshelves and decided to give it a try. I only made it a third of the way through with no desire to finish. It probably would have appealed at a different stage of my life but not now.

Gwyneth Paltrow found this book "hilarious and insightful" and publishers weekly called this guy "a comic writer to watch". I call it "one i am done with and have forgotten about."
