Crazy In Love By Chris Manby
Julius was ruthless in business and let Birdie do as she likes as long as she don't disturb him. She grew up to be a rich, spoilt and over pampered young lady who care for herself only. Anything she wants, she must have.
One day, she got into her head that she is in love with a hot young actor, Dean Stevenson. Dean was horrified but at the pressure of his agent, Dean, "entertained" Birdie's attention to him.
But soon, Dean, found a new love. Birdie is willing to do anything to get him back, including getting herself kidnapped.
And this kidnapping episode really changed her life and she saw what an empty existence that she was having all this time. She also found her true calling and love.
I have read some of Chris Manby books and they are good. But I can't say the same for this. I had a hard time finishing this book.
First of all, the font was quite tiny making it hard to read. I wonder why she want to have this book printed in such a tiny font. To save paper and the environment so that it's coincide with a part of this book?
Secondly, the first half of the book of the book are dedicated to describing what a pampered and empty live that Birdie and her friends were having. Nothing better to do than updating their Facebook with every tiny things that they do and also creating false news for the Paparazzi to write.
The second half of the book was about how she want converted from her selfish ways to seeing the light of her empty existence and turn into a pro-environment supporter. Pretty much unbelievable.
For me it rate 1 star. Maybe I am getting to be too demanding in my reading?
