i remember when i was 13 or so and i finally realized that all of the r.l. stine books i'd been reading were pretty trashy and devoid of any literary merit. i felt a little silly for devouring something like 100 fear street books. i didn't feel too bad about it, though. i mean, i was reading, and it wasn't like i ONLY read fear street books. i read good stuff too.

this book is like that, only now i'm 25, and this book is friggin DIRTY. i kind of feel like i'm writing a review for soft porn right now. who bothers to tell everyone that they read this?

because this book is fucking RIVETING. i read all 425 pages in 3 days. i don't like motley crue. i don't even like metal (or whatever you want to call motley crue. see? i don't even know!). i could not put this stupid book down.

i cannot, in good conscience, recommend this book to any of my friends. you will probably think i'm a really gross person who reads trash. it's ridiculously entertaining, though, you guys. i'm serious. i'm putting it in the "beach reads" box at the beach house. when was the last time i read 425 pages in 3 days? harry potter i guess. this is like smutty harry potter.

put that on a dust jacket. smutty harry potter.

Betsy You've got my interest piqued... wonder if I can find it on audio. Who doesn't like trash, especially with a little metal thrown in?

Melanie Page It took me months and months to finish this book because there was a part where I realized that I didn't care how much drugs they ingested or how much booze they drank or how many women they demoralized. I, too, felt embarrassed to have read The Dirt. I didn't come away with a "RIVETING" feel, though!

Marilu Your review was great!! Made me chuckle! I LOVED this book!!!

Chanel Really accurate review! Smutty Harry Potter!
