This is what I was hoping for with Satan's Sisters.
Firstly, I have no problem with a novel with a lot of sex - if it is entertaining and remotely pertinent to the plotline.
Secondly, I did not expect Star Jones to be a high literary author.
Having said all of this, I found this book to be convoluted, silly and most importantly, boring, boring, boring.
As soon as I started reading the first few pages, my first thought was "I guess she is not going to go out on a limb here and write something a little daring". It was obvious, by her opening chapter about a "bunch of women who host a daytime show" that we were simply going to be reading about Jones' distorted(?)view of her own importance and I was not mistaken.
From the get go, I found the characters completely confusing and I just could not figure out why this plotline should be even more remotely interesting to me.
The writing was silly, the characters were silly and the entire book was silly - I even hated the title. This one is a big no for me.
The premise of the book is that one former host has written a book, entitled Satan's Sisters and it is reported to be a tell-all about the women who are still hosting the show. Of course, all the women want to know what is in the book, because all of them have secrets they do not wish to have exposed. The grand dame and lead hostess, Maxine in particular, does not want anything about her life exposed. She has created a persona of secrecy she will do anything to maintain. Not only that, but one of her secrets is so awful, it could completely change her life and the lives of others.
SATAN'S SISTERS is a fast-paced, entertaining book filled with drama and scandal. It seems that everyone who sat on the red couch had something to hide, from their sexuality to affairs with coworkers and they were all interested in knowing what had been written about them. I found the book to be the perfect summer book that will surely have tongues wagging and people wondering if any of the stories are true. I recommend this book to all readers who love drama-filled page turners.
