Lost in Crazytown - Robert Bryndza & Jan Bryndza
Reading Challenge Category: Kindle Unlimited.
If you choose to live life in the Hollywood fast lane, there's a chance you could get run over! When Filip leaves London for a life in Los Angeles, he dreams of being a celebrity stylist. But, as the saying goes, be careful what you wish for... Filip has barely settled into his apartment in the Hollywood Hills when he meets Derek and Hillary - a strange middle-aged gay couple wearing matching sweaters. They introduce him to their neighbour Veronica Madison - a movie star on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Veronica hires him to style her for a celebrity charity gala and soon Filip is pulled into the dark and hilarious world she inhabits, surrounded by the famous (and infamous) residents of the Hollywood Hills. Within a few months, Veronica invites him to be her guest at the Oscars and events take on a much darker tone. Filip faces a choice; should he dive into the murky waters of life in the Hollywood fast lane? Or should he choose happiness and return to the love of his life he left back home in London?
Well, this was a looney toons crazy book. I needed a short and fun book to finish off my month, and this was certainly that. I’m not sure if I could have coped with it being any longer as it was a bit too wacky for a long book. Having said that I would have loved some backstory into some of the characters like Hillary and Derek, what made them so flipping strange? I wasn’t actually very keen on the protagonist Filip I felt he was very dull in comparison to the insanity going on around him, but maybe that was the intention. However, he made me feel quite sleepy like he just had no get-up and go and considering he had gone to Hollywood to crack his career; it just didn’t sit well with this personality being portrayed. It was certainly very different from the other Bryndza book ‘Cold Blood’ that I read a few months ago, and, I think, to be honest, I prefer that genre of his. So I have deleted his other ‘silly’ books from my TBR list.
