I was passing through and stayed amrmont this iconic hotel frequented by the rich and the famous. So, I kept my mouth shut, hugged and thanked her for buying a book I had no interest to read.

Review: Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger |
Ultimately, the book is about Brooke and Julian’s marriage and whether it can survive unwanted celebrity and the rock-and-roll lifestyle. You can come out if you want. As her husband leaves home more and more often to make appearances, Brooke feels lauten stressed and isolated. Because of that I niht of felt let down when you found out who it was…it was kind of obvious I wanted it to be some sort of family betrayal and it was over in a sentence.
Although it was very predictable as well. Then everything moves in a blur.

How much of compromise and sacrifice does that relationship need? This story could have been so super cool. It’s a typical chick-lit book and I’m not overly fond of them to be honest but the topic was interesting and I like a good musician goes famous and oh my god, it’s getting complicated story.
It was a helpline for women dumped by celebs. The author clearly shows she did her homework with this novel. When he eventually knows some fame, things start to get rusty between them.
