I won this book as a first reads giveaway and was excited to read about the life of a Hollywood star in the early to mid 1900s as I am a big movie fan! It is quite interesting to think about how Hollywood used to be compared to the current Hollywood.

While the writing was great, I wish there was more time spent on Laura Lamont's prime acting years instead of her attempts to revive her career and the great amount of death in her life. As well, I felt like the characters could not have a conversation without Laura looking back on some past event in her life, which made for some tough reading. Despite this, the characters were well established and you had a good visual in your mind who they were and how you would expect them to react in certain situations. They were quite enjoyable to read about (with the exclusion of Gordon!).
