After some digging, I found this on Wikipedia: "Poor Little Bitch Girl is the twenty-seventh novel by English novelist Jackie Collins. It was released on 4 October 2009 in the United Kingdom, and 9 February 2010 in the United States. The book stemmed from an idea that Collins was working on for a television series about heiresses entitled Poor Little Rich Girls.[1] The series was ultimately never made and so she adapted the material for a novel."(less)

I do not understand the raving reviews about this terrible, terrible book. I picked it up thinking that since someone was murdered there would be a good mystery mixed with drama. Granted, I've never read a Jackie Collins book, so I was unprepared for such a fluffy, trashy read. It was made even more disgusting to me when I realized that this author is my grandmother's age. Yep, this raunchy stuff is being written by a 75 year old woman. Needless to say I will not be reading another one of her bo ...more

This is the first book I read by Jackie Collins and I can definitely say it won’t be the last.
Denver, the main protagonist, a hot shot attorney working in L.A. finds herself in the path of old school mates: Carolyn, Annabel and Bobby. Carolyn, Denver’s best friend ever since high school, is the personal assistant of a married senator with whom she is having an affair. Annabel, the daughter of 2 major Hollywood movie stars, is the “poor little bitch girl” who is now living in NYC with her cocaine

What a stupid book. I wanted something trashy to read on a cruise, but this wasn't even fun. Stupid characters, stupid plot - not even any good sex scenes. And what the hell was with the Madonna/Cher character (Zeena) who talked about herself in third person? I rolled my eyes through any chapter in which she was featured. I'll give it an extra star just for holding my attention on the plane - I held in there to see if everything would be wrapped up neatly without any of these "outrageous" people ...more

As much as I couldn't put this book down, I hated it. Every character was boring, contrived and overdone. Every situation was predictable. The sexiness synonymous with Jackie is missing. I am tempted to believe that a ghost writer wrote this story and just stuck her name on the cover. I was very disappointed in the poor plot, 2D characters, overdone settings and cliched themes. Overall a bad read I won't be tempted back to her books unfortunately.
Dec 06, 2011 Mary rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
This was probably the worst book I've ever read cover to cover. The writing was juvenile, and even for chick lit there was absolutely no redeeming quality about it for me. The fact that Denver was supposed to be a lawyer with the way she talked/acted was laughable. The entire thing basically made me feel like anyone can write a book, stick some celebrity references in it, and have a hit.

Anabelle Maestro the daughter of two hottest and highest paid actor and actress in Hollywood. She is the one in the cover. Spoiled, rich, beautiful, sexy and wild. Which also means unappreciated, insecure, selfish. She moved to the east coast after dropping out of college in Boston to get away from her parents' fame and to venture on her own, she did alright, together with her coke addict boyfriend Frankie Romano they are raking in millions, running a very lucrative business - the high end prost ...more

One word that keeps popping up my mind while I think of the words too describe this delicious book is DRAMA. Yes, there’s plenty of drama in this book to keep you entertained on a hot summer day, lying at the beach, drinking you’re mojito cocktail.

I don’t know how Jackie Collins comes up with these characters, there are so many of them and each one of them is very interesting. Because there are so many characters, you would probably think that somehow that would be confusing, but I can assure it

I love love love the Lucky series and was excited to pick up this copy from the library because it continued with a Santangelo via Bobby..sry to say fans but I wasn't too thrilled with reading through this book. Usually, it takes me less than a day to finish her book but this one took 3..was so not a fan of Denver's backwards ass..thoughts of Josh (ex) and hooking up w/two diff men back to back but all of a sudden she has eyes for her hs crush Bobby and "chemistry" happens between them?

In her latest novel, Poor Little Bitch Girl, Collins once again writes a page-turner of a novel filled with sex, friendship, a kidnapping, a murder mystery, and characters whose lives are on a collision course. And again, she succeeds in getting the reader's attention and keeping it.

This novel is a perfect beach read, just in time for spring breakers to head south or on a cruise. Denver Jones, a hard-charging LA lawyer meets up again with former high school classmates Annabelle Maestro and Bobby

Loved it!!!!!, March 16, 2010

This review is from: Poor Little Bitch Girl (Hardcover)
I have never read Jackie Collins before this book, but I will definately read more! I loved this book! This book reminded me a lot of Candace Bushnell's books (she wrote Sex and the City). I enjoyed her books also! I loved how all the characters came together. My favorite character by far was Denver. I felt like Annabelle and Carolyn didn't have much substance to them, but Devner hit the spot for me. I was sec

At some point I am going to have to accept that Jackie Collins's books are not a patch on what they were when I started reading them as a teenager. But not yet. This book is largely a rehash of her previous work, albeit with a modern feel (and references to recent pop culture events such as Michael Jackson's death, etc). She seems to have toned the sexy stuff down somewhat in recent years, which is immediately disappointing as, let's face it, that's kind of why we read Jackie Collins in the firs ...more

This book was passed onto me by my mother in law and it was pretty raunchy. It was my first Jackie Collins book, and probably my last. Even though the story line and characters kept my interest, it was a little too soap opera for me and I wasn't impressed by the writing.

I listened to this on BOCD. Truly one of the silliest, trampiest, uninspired things I've ever experienced. Worse yet, it almost put me to sleep! I have a new appreciation for Joan Collins now: she truly IS the "talented" Collins!

Jackie brings us another novel in the Santangelo series, though Lucky only plays a peripheral role in this one. Instead, this novel is more about Lucky’s son Bobby and his old friends and acquaintances from high school.

One of Bobby’s buddies is Frankie, the coke-addicted boyfriend of Annabelle Maestro, another classmate and the daughter of movie star parents. Frankie and Annabelle, perpetually short of cash despite Annabelle’s generous allowance, have started their own exclusive call girl busin

I highly doubt my review is relevant, because I'm clearly .. clearly not the target audience for this book. But a friend recommended we read it, and after some protest I decided it couldn't hurt. I was wrong.

So the sociological experiment began. My friends' plan was for it to help us understand women better. A noble thought, but in the end the pain was not worth any gain. Really all I learn't from this, is that we have polar opposite opinions on what makes for good storytelling. Oh and that some

This is a book you have to be in the mood for. I was coming of a 5 book dystopian roll and I needed something to take my mind off the obvious impending dystopian take over of all my literary favors. And this was it. This was the first book I have ever read written by Jackie Collins AND this is a series that I was able to jump into with the latest edition and not feel like I am missing the back story. I enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone for a little while. The writing is great, I mean it's ...more

3.5 stars I love Jackie Collins. There. I said it. She's my guilty pleasure that, really, when I get down to it, I'm not that guilty over. She's my go-to when I want a fast, frothy, overall fun read. Rarely am I truly disappointed.

Poor Little Bitch Girl wasn't my ABSOLUTE favorite read of hers, but it was comforting, in a way, to just sit back for a few hours and let the superficial world of Hollywood take over.

It was somewhat strange that the Denver chapters were in first person present tense
What can I say? If you've read one Jackie Collins, you've read them all. I even had to make a new shelf for them, called FLUFF. Pretty much means if you don't want to use more than one brain cell, then this is for you. Don't get me wrong, there are times that this is just what I want. Hence the reason I read it but do they occupy a lot of my, no. They are kind of like Classics for Paris Hilton. (All in good fun, Paris, don't sue me, I'm poor.)

OK, so this is what I consider a "cleansing" read. I enjoy Jackie Collins because her books are very entertaining and don't require a lot of mental action in order to read. After the previous read "Half the Sky" I was in need of some "light" reading.

I would recommend to those who enjoy a fun read and don't mind a little bit of language/sex.

AHH! Jackie Collins...a guilty pleasure! Can't wait to see what the Santangelos are up to now!

This was so much better than the last couple of books...vintage Collins. And it looks like she will be writing another in the Santangelo saga...

Yes, yes, I'm mortified. I just can't help myself. And it wasn't even particularly juicy. Can it be that I'm over Jackie Collins finally?

When it comes to "Poor Little Bitch Girl" by Jackie Collins it's hard to pick a point to begin. There were several people featured in the novel, all of whom played a role in the overall plot of the story. A group of teenagers who all went to the same high school made different choices that led them in different directions but were never able to escape their ties to one another. A murder being the one factor bonding them together and bringing them back to a Hollywood. My interest remained in foll ...more

- This book is hard to explain without spoilers so be warned!

"Pretty Little Bitch Girl" by Jackie Collins is a confusing mesh of three different plots that really don't intersect or have much to do with each other, except for the fact that the characters know each other.

1. Denver Jones is a "hot shot" lawyer, who at 25 somehow has 3 years of experience and has therefore managed to nab big cases and promotions. Despite this introduction to her character, she actually spends the book doing exactly

I had never read a Jackie Collins book before and I don't really like jumping into an already established series, but I was loaned this book so thought I'd give it a shot (no pun intended with a shooting in the book).

The story centres around 4 main characters; Bobby, Denver, Annabelle and Carolyn. They all went to same school as youths but weren't all friends. Denver is a lawyer who was briefly friendly with Annabelle, daughter of two famous movie stars, but is now friends with Carolyn, assistan

This is the first novel I read for Jackie Collins. I was under the impression that she's a great writer and all. I bought Poor Little Bitch Girl 5 years ago, along with 3 other novels by Collins, and I hadn't gotten around to reading any of them until this past weekend when my cousin came over to borrow something to read from my mini library. She picked out one of Collins's novel and I thought "well, I paid for them, I've got them, I should read them." I picked this one by random and read the ba ...more

This was my first book by Jackie Collins. I enjoyed the way the stories of the characters started out separately and then intersected.
Some scenes offered suspense while a couple elicited a chuckle. It made you wonder if Carolyn was naive or stupid, how long before she saw the writing on the wall? I loved Bobby. In a way he presented as a naive rich boy in fancy with high profile women. Denver was a curious character, not sure if she was looking for love, not sure if her actions were whorish but
