Keskpäraselt kirjutatud elulugu, mis meenutab kergelt neid noorsooromaanivõistluste raamatuid. Kui esimene pool (veerand?) raamatust tõepoolest keskendus üsna pealiskaduselt Sofia raskele lapsepõlvele, siis ülejäänud oli rohkem "mina ja kuulsused, mina ja peod, mina ja... maailm".

Raamat oli alguses paljulubav, kuid kahjuks oli üsna viletsasti üles ehitatud. Autor jättis kohati väga naiivse mulje ning lauseehitus oli häirivalt lihtsakoeline, väga palju oli kasutatud lihtlauseid, mis pikema aja jooksul raskendasid lugemist.
