The cover of this book is similar to the ones of the LA Candy Trilogy. An all black background with dark pink and white lettering. In the center is a crushed starshaped lollipop. Again a real classy cover.
The writing style of Lauren Conrad is again fun and easy but sadly the story was not as exciting as in the LA Candy trilogy. The reader finds out a lot about the new characters and also about Gaby and Madison, but the story lacks drama. A little unusual for 4 reality stars in Hollywood.
The two new charakters Kate and Carmen are total opposites. The one is a girl from a smalltown, who wants to become a musician, while the other is the daughter of a famous singer and music producer wanting to become an actress. Both girls are really interesting characters. Gaby is the same as readers already know her from LA Candy. Madison therefore shows a different side of herself.
I really enjoyed this book but as i mentioned above the story sadly lacked a little drama.
Enttäuscht wurde ich nicht.
Sicherlich die Handlungsstränge sind ähnlich ( wieder geht es um junge Frauen die ein Leben in Los Angeles führen und dabei von Reality TV Kameras beobachtet werden) aber es kommen neben einer alten bekannten ( Madison) neue und für mich durchaus interessante Charaktere hinzu.
Ich möchte nicht groß auf die Handlung rund um einzelne Charaktere eingehen, ich denke aber das jedem der spaß am verfolgen von unterschiedlichen reality Formaten hat oder einen kleinen Einblick in die Welt des reality TV haben möchte, dieses Buch durchaus gefallen wird.
Für Fans von Lauren Conrad besonders interessant da teilweise leichte parallelen zu ihrem eigenen in The Hills dargestellten leben hat.

The photography is beautiful and top-notch. You really see the clothes and styles up close without a lot of other stuff to take away from what she's trying to convey. Great book...worth the price for sure!
First 50 Pages: As far as entertainment value goes, this book has a lot of perks. Sort of like say, reading a reality show in book form. More than once I wondered how much of the story did Lauren pull from her own life. With that being said, if I hadn't of received this book for review, I probably would never have bought it myself. It's just not my type of thing and I wasn't super crazy in love with Lauren's other books to go and rush to pick up this book. I could tell right away that I was going to have some issues with The Fame Game, but I do have to say that Lauren's writing has improved enormously in this novel.
Characters & Plot: This is a story about Madison Parker, who is a character that some people will know is in Lauren's other book series, L.A. Candy. Madison is given the opportunity to be on a new reality-based television show called The Fame Game. There are three other girls who will also be competing for their spot in Hollywood, named Kate, Carmen and Gaby. Four women in one household does not sound like a fun or pleasant time to me, but Madison is willing to do whatever she has to in order to rise to the top of the social ladder.
Needless to say, it was drama everywhere you looked. All of the characters, with the exception of Kate, were pretty much as horrible as they come. There really isn't much of a plot line, and I'm just going to come out and say it. I hated the characters. The Fame Game is full to the brim with backstabbing, bitchy girls with too much money and not enough common sense. I couldn't relate to them when they would go and spend $300 dollars on a purse without blinking an eye, or with the constant designer name dropping spread throughout the entire book. Kate is the only redeeming person of the bunch and she is not even the main character. I could never hang out with girls like these without wanting to throw them in front of a bus. Except Kate, I would save her.
Final Thoughts: I think this is going to be a love it or hate it type of book. I'm not sure if it was right for me, but I did find it to be entertaining. It's like a guilty pleasure kind of story with little substance, but fun to read. I would love to see Lauren write something else, maybe something more people will be able to relate to, and because I don't think she is a terrible writer. I guess time will tell!
