Untimely content. It would have been popular in the late 90s-early 2000s, when admiration for luxury living of so-called stars was at the peak.
Boring. There are moments of tention when it seems that something exciting will happen, but nothing happens.
It's annoying - description on almost every page of huge mansions with its rich but tasteless decor-so-called antics delivered from Europe. Maybe in past centuries someone was using those antics as a night pot. But now they are became proof of taste and wealth.
Author, while trying to be on the side of those who live in much modest conditions than characters of the book, cannot hide her admiration for life of those who live in areas such as California's Bell Air. Influence from her job as a realtor.
