I have to reiterate this book is 100% fiction. None of it is real, and I am thankful about that in certain parts.
I always had an image of Marilyn, beautiful, buxom, blonde bombshell with a contagious laugh and a gorgeous smile. That image is now replaced with something not so flattering.
I know this book is fiction, but your mind takes over and all the things written, you actually ask yourself "what if"? It was a hard pill for me to swallow in the aspect of Joe and Marilyn's relationship. Not what I expected it to be.
While I liked the idea, I was blown away by the book. Rather the opposite. I'm mildly turned off now.
Sorry guys. Not one of my faves.
