I loved the story until the end. It's a really quick read. The ending was bull crap. Also, it wasn't until I closed the book, that I noticed a quote on the front stating the story was "hilarious". That's not exactly how I would describe it.

I liked it, but definitely wasn't dying to get to the next page. I will say she writes incredibly well and I'd recommend this to anyone. Just wasn't a favorite for me.

He is by far the worst writer (or dictator - however that works). Every story seemed so far fetched and to be honest... I feel as though he stole stories straight out of the Motley Crue clan. Right down to him claiming that he had died of an overdose ...more

Fastest read in a while. Started last night in bed and finished it this afternoon. While it was a (sort of) page turner. It was unfortunately predictable. I recommend if you have a long flight or train trip coming up.

So well written, I may just have to try A Thousand Splendid Suns-Complete Summary & Analysis to see if I took it ALL in. Read this on vacation, finished it in 48 hours....My boyfriend was getting jealous of the book.
