Hollywood Savage

Hollywood Savage Hollywood Savage was long winded by the end of the book I was hoping for a plane crash or something to liven it up Ms McCloy might think about putting life into her characters, no one wants to read depression all the time Her characters were not ones you could feel for or care about The constant whining made me dislike them the only one I felt anything for was the child.

guilt, anger and betrayal is only one of the perils he must navigate as his fantasies become increasingly hard to distinguish from reality My Thoughts and Opinion When I first accepted this book for review, I thought it was going to be the typical Hollywood life style that is the basis of many books, the gossip in magazines and on entertainment TV shows The following opinion is mine and only mine I read 50 pages, and at that point, I still had not been pulled into the story I found the narrative of first person very wordy, that at times, I would have to reread sentences to process what was really being said I felt that the storyline was slow paced in the pages read Unfortunately, this book had to be put aside in the DNF pile My Rating 1 DNF A Scalding Exploration Of Love, Marriage,

intend the message for him After hopping on his flight to Hollywood, Miles slowly records his ever increasing convictions that his wife Maggie is having an affair Pained and hurting by this turn of events, Miles is unable to concentrate on writing his screen play and temporarily finds relief in drugs and soon finds intoxicating comfort in his own affair The book is a raw look at one mans thoughts, feelings and confusion over his marriage It tells the tale of two, husband and wife, and their secrets, which are revealed to each other yet never confirmed The author skillfully writes this book from a mans perspective Miles is an enraged and jealous husband who finds comfort in revenge or basically the idea that anything you can do, I can do better His affair is passionate and full of love unlike his marriage, yet he is unsure if it is true or just because of his wife s affair This is the first book I have read by Kristin McCloy but her ability to write from such a psychotic, disturbed, raw view was astonishing It was really refreshing to see a novel approach the subject of an affair from the husband s point of view While I appreciate the authors writing ability, this book was not for me I was unable to connect or attach to the character and found myself bored throughout most of the book I would love to read another book by Kristin McCloy to find out if it was just this book or her writing style in general that did not agree with me I found the story to be depressing, overbearing, melodramatic and sad The novel left me ready to read a happy upbeat book that doesn t drag on It was as if a fog was lifted from me when I completed the novel, because I knew I did not have to return to it Overall, I appreciated the author s talent and skillful writing in this novel, it just wasn t for me I m sure there are many readers who will appreciate this novel and enjoy it I wish I could say I did both however this particular novel was not an enjoying read for me personally.Review for An absolutely fascinating narrator McCloy s raw prose and Miles s wild unpredictability will keep readers hooked as Miles flirts with a potentially catastrophic crash and burn Publisher s Weekly Mesmerizing prose Kirkus Knockout prose LA Times A fascinating peek inside the mind of a writer, warts and all Booklist What Stephanie Thought I wasn t sure whether to be disgusted, or enraptured with this book The plot was very poor man has an affair with a woman who is completely different from his wife man battles depression man goes back to wife without even telling her about the other woman.Plot notwithstanding, I ll talk about the conveyed emotions Miles definitely tells it how it is, and every word is so raw and honest, it really haunted me He was such a cynical, smart assed guy whose voice, though disturbing, was unbelievably intriguing.It was a really difficult read because the prose was in journal format There were no chapters, and Miles McCloy seemed to just ramble on about whatever was on his mind I liked Miles, but I didn t like McCloy Her voice sounds extremely snobbish, and that s very off putting She characterizes Miles as arrogant and I couldn t get myself to really feel sympathy for him However, as a character, he was strong, and I liked how he personified things poetically.Overall, I think it was a good tragic romance, but I think it really could have been better with dialogue and plot structure I recommend this to anyone who has the patience to read through a bunch of fluff before getting to the actual point I loved how this book explored one man s downward spiral He believes his wife is cheating on him they are in a long distance NYC LA marriage and, based on this suspicion, is pushed into his own affair The writing is raw, emotional, and electric McCloy perfectly captures the loneliness of being away from the person you love and how your own mind can ruin you. An absolutely fascinating narrator McCloy s raw prose and Miles s wild unpredictability will keep readers hooked as Miles flirts with a potentially catastrophic crash and burn Publisher s Weekly Mesmerizing prose Kirkus Knockout prose LA Times A fascinating peek inside the mind of a writer, warts and all Booklist I love love love Velocity and Some Girls so I was super excited when I got this book I ve tried twice to read it, but I can t The parenthesis and commas everywhere ruin it for me, they aren t needed The story is interesting, but it just reads differently than her other books.
