I've re-read this book several times. There is one thing that annoys me - the character Suzanne states, in a comparison, that Heather Locklear has brown eyes - and of course, Heather Locklear has BLUE eyes. Except for that glaring discrepancy, the book is an enjoyable escape into the world of a spoiled, self-centered psychopath. Joyce Maynard's writing flows and carrries the reader along effortlessly.

Anyone who would read this book and think it was just a novelization of the Pam Smart story probably watches too many movies of the week on LifetimeTV. This book takes the idea of what happened in the Smart case and uses it as a skeleton to write a sharp and darkly funny FICTIONALIZED look at our society's obsession with television and celebrity.When this book was turned into a movie, a local t.v. station ran an interview with Pam Smart who was uspet about her portrayal in the film. It wouldn't have come as such a surprise to her if she had bothered to read the book. And why would she be upset if she didn't care about fame (or rather infamy)? Don't read this book and wonder how much of it is about Pam Smart but read it wonder how much of it is about our country, our neighbors and ourselves.

Maybe you have to be a writer to appreciate the breathtaking talent that went into the writing of this book. It is an incredible feat to be able to sustain multiple points of view as gracefully and altogether believably as Ms. Maynard did here. I can only admire her achievement.

Why doesn't this author write a book of her own? Does she have any imagination? Any idiot could take the Pam Smart story and change the names and a few things about the characters. It's a shameless copy of the real story, and Pam Smart should be suing this author!

Joyce watched the TV movie based on Pamela Smart's antics, which starred Helen Hunt, and basically wrote a novelization of that screenplay. Yuck!
