I'm too old to like this....

but I did anyway. Even read the follow up book. I'm actually looking forward to a third; just don't take it too seriously.

Reality

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I liked that it was kind of based on LC's role in the Hills on MTV...It was what kept me interested.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Great read for any reality tv junkie. I enjoyed it on a 19 hour drive...kept things interesting.

Good..until the end..

I should probably give myself some time before reviewing, but I wont.

I'm a huge fan of The Hills, and this book is very similar, I found myself wondering who was who and if things really happened.

For this being Lauren's first book, it was very good, and her narrating was perfect.

My issue.. the ending. It ended so abruptly. Unless shes planning to make this a series (which should be listed) I'm left dumbfounded.

Almost as entertaining as the MTV garbage

What disappointed you about L.A. Candy?

L.A. Candy was an exact replica of Lauren Conrad's journey into MTV reality fame. All she did was turn "The Hills" into "L.A. Candy"- how creative... Being casted for a reality show full of blonde rich girls fighting over nonsensical things, does not qualify you for writing. This was not even entertaining.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Lauren Conrad?

No

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from L.A. Candy?

I would make LC re-write this book from beginning to end. I think it would have been more successful if we got Lauren Conrad's first-hand account of how "The Hills" changed her life; instead of her pretending to be a young-fiction author re-writing the terrible scripts of her 'real life' in "The Hills".

I feel like I got a chance to be one of the "cool kids"

Growing up, through middle school, high school, and college, I've always been low-drama, no nonsense, "goody two-shoes" type of girl. But I always wondered what it was like to be one of the "cool kids." Well, reading this book gave me a good glimpse of it I think. The perspective, sleeping around, bad language, shallow values, and back stabbing that I'm glad aren't part of my personal real life. I guess I'm glad I listened to this book, Lauren Conrad did a great job reading it. I did enjoy it, but it's not something I'd want my daughter listening to. Even though it's a cliffhanger I'm not going to listen to the sequels.
