really liked it
Read in July, 1987

This is the first book I can remebering reading just for pure pleasure. The story of three lost and lonley people in LA in the 80's reminded me of some of my friends. The quote "People don't know how to merge in L.A" rang true. You feel put off by their display of wealth and lack of morals and concern for others. But then as you read you feel closer to the characters and want to see them succeed and get out of the rat race known as young, beautiful, rich Beverly Hills teens. Although I also enjoy the moview, it can not compare to the book. The description of everyone as being blonde and tan helps solidify that everyone in their lives are carbon coies of one another.
