This Hollywood morality tale won't win prizes for originality but it's an enticing and topical view of the grubby underside of power plays and monstrous egos. Dibdin either knows what she's writing about or else has done her research as the setting and details feel authentic. It's a shame that Clark Conrad is little more than caricature and that the 'thriller' elements of the plot feel added on without much substance - still, a gossipy look at the world of movies, TV and online news. I'd read ...more

I thought this book was ok. It was quite slow and boring. There were some good bits in it but it just didnt hold my interest. I wasnt interested in any of the characters and the story just seemed to drag on. I thought it would be more of a thriller book but it was just a love story based in the movie industry. This wasnt my type of book at all. ...more

Through His Eyes is a highly topical and insightful psychological drama, with some intriguingly realistic characters and a storyline ripped straight from the headlines.
Jess is trying to build a career for herself as an entertainment journalist in a digital world. Handed the opportunity of a lifetime, she gets drawn into the dark heart of Hollywood when a teenage crush becomes an adult reality.
This is a clever tale, a genuinely compelling portrait of what lies beneath a  place of glitz and

3.5*, maybe. Good for the most part - lots of interesting content about Hollywood and the reporting of it. But also rather predictable, and the ending kind of fizzled out. The main character was rather naive, blinded by her affection for the star. Good, Solis writing, but I think this could have been better, more substantial. Very timely, though, so that should attract a fair few readers.

An enthralling story that details the dark side of Hollywood. The plot will keep you on your toes and you will want to flip through the pages to find out what happens next. However, the book's biggest flaw is that the characters aren't likeable or particularly complex. Even with shallow characters, it's still an intriguing and absorbing read.

I requested this on NetGalley as it was marketed as a dark, unsettling thriller which sounded right up my street and the blurb sounded interesting. I have to say though, that I wouldnt call this a thriller, in fact Im not really sure what genre I would put this book in! I feel like it does read slightly more like a contemporary with a few dark bits in places but its definitely not a thriller so if youre looking at getting this book because of this, then you may end up being disappointed.

This book was not a romance and not a thriller. Its a story about the seedy side of Hollywood and journalism. Not my usual thing but I really enjoyed it and found it very readable. ...more

I feel like Im maybe being a bit too harsh with my rating but when taking into account each nick I have about the book, 2* is probably the most accurate.

For almost all of the book, it felt like I was reading a Brad Pitt/Johnny Depp fanfic, as well as mentioning celebrities with different names to those theyre clearly based on in real life. I personally didnt like that.

I also think that the book had strange pacing - nothing exciting really happens until at least more than halfway through the

A hard-hitting, gut-wrenching of a read. This mesmerising book is a fab read for the summer. Get enthralled as Jessica in the world of Hollywood. You just may forget to come up for air.

I thought this book was going to end with the girl getting the guy, but it turned in a very different direction. Great read! Thanks to Head of Zeus and NetGalley for advanced copy.

It was an easy quick read which was convenient for vacation but not terribly exciting at all

This novel was truly a mission to complete. I found this completely uninteresting and hard to connect with. Not for me.

Thank you to the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
