One thought on “Show World

  1. Adam Nelson

    Not impressed It seemed to advertise itself and was advertised by readers who favored it as a morality tale of sorts, the female protagonist s tragic story of a downward spiral into drugs, depression, despair, and death All of that really just occupies maybe the last 30 pages, and at that point, yes, it s pretty effectively tragic Leading up, however, her addiction and self destruction are only occasionally alluded to Otherwise, it felt like Helen Fielding s Cause Celeb an insider s view of an a [...]
