This book was so over the top ridiculous it was insane. If i weren't looking to read something mindless and entertaining I never would have picked up this book. It was so materialistic, 'uppity,' and over the top I actually laughed on several occasions. It was told from the perspective of a socialite from New York who loved her status and money and not much else. Her husband is killed in a prostitutes apartment. About 80% of this book is the narrator, Suzie, talking about how awesome, beautiful, and better she is than anyone else. It was an entertaining book that's for sure, but you can't take it too seriously or you will recognize the utter ridiculousness of the entire thing.
