Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Sex and drugs and shlock and more--Jacqueline Susann's addictively entertaining trash classic about three showbiz girls clawing their way to the top and hitting bottom in New York City has it all. Though it's inspired by Susann's experience as a mid-century Broadway starlet who came heartbreakingly close to making it, but did not, and despite its reputation as THE roman á clef of the go-go 1960s, the novel turned out to be weirdly predictive of 1990s post-punk, post-feminist, post "riot grrrl" culture. Jackie Susann may not be a writer for the ages, but--alas!--she's still a writer for our times.

Pressestimmen

"Decades ahead of its time . . . Mesmerizing . . . The equation of emotional dependencies with drug addiction in one comprehensive personality disorder is, if anything, more chic today than in Susann's time; also prescient is the book's protofeminism."—Mim Udovitch, The Village Voice Literary Supplement

"I couldn't believe these weren't real girls because I know them. Maddeningly sexy. I wish I had written it."—Helen Gurley Brown

"Magnetic . . . [Susann]'s a natural storyteller . . . Valley is the kind of book that most of its readers cannot put down."—Nora Ephron

"Jackie, it seemed, understood by instinct that her readers were ready for the raw side of love . . . for a franker sexuality and a tougher kind of story-for romance with tears and oral sex."—Michael Korda, The New Yorker

"One of the steamiest novels ever written."—Earl Wilson

This book is addictive and still as entertaining as when the novel first came out. I love that this isn't just another glamorizing, all is peachy and perfect story but it gets real and tells you what life is really like - with all its ups and downs. This is one of my favorite books so I will re-read it for years to come.

PS: Do not get the German version, it's terrible, the English one is much better.

Fliegende Perücken bei Catfights unter Diven, zugedröhnte Hollywood-Schönheiten, VIPs in der Irrenanstalt - Nein, dabei handelt es sich nicht um die neueste Folge von "Sex And The City" oder "Der Denver-Clan", sondern um Jacqueline Susann's Mega-Bestseller "Valley of The Dolls". Da die deutsche Version stark gekürzt ist, empfehle ich die englische Ausgabe. "Valley" kann man nicht mehr aus der Hand legen, wenn man es erst einmal aufgeschlagen hat. Die perfekte Strandlektüre!

It's still an enjoyable read although the end is a bit tedious and feels like the writer couldn't stop. As a whole the novel does feel dated but you do get a sense of what a shocker it must've been when it was published at the time. In any case, a classic.

If I tell you that this book changed my life, will you read it? You should. I first read Valley of the Dolls when I was a teenager, and it introduced me to the hypnotic pleasures of "junk fiction." I learned what it meant to read for pure, unadulterated pleasure, and what a thrill it was to read a book many times. Susann's depiction of three career women struggling to the top is a bicoastal orgy of pharmeceutical and artistic profligacy. Neely, Jennifer and Anne all succumb to the booze, dolls and hedonism of their showbiz lifestyles, and their spiralling declines are delicately laced in a book whose vulgarity belies Susann's rather superb craftmanship.
Susann's quirky bildungsroman borrows broadly from her own life, (documented in Seaman's wonderful biography, Isn't She Great), hints unsubtley at insider knowledge of celebrity hi-jinks of the postwar period, and circles around questions of morality with an exhilirating verve hardly visible now in the kind of bestsellers that emulate this classic. Its success on publication is legendary: Susann and her husband were shameless promoters of the book (it was sold in butchers' shops)and about as colorful as the fiction they were hawking. Truman Capote famously said of Susann that she looked like a truck driver in drag. His insult neatly captues the somewhat prosaic, yet always enjoyable prose of this novel as well as any reviewer could. For added pleasure, watch the movie. It's hard to see Neely O'Hara as anyone but Patty Duke after her extravagent performance in Mark Robson's quite faithful film translation, and Sharon Tate as the alluring Jennifer adds a poignant screen presence. But please, do not deny yourself the sublime camp pleasure of the novel.

When I first read Valley, I was a little surprised. Having seen the movie first, I expected the book to be the same. Boy was I in for a surprise! The movie didn't do it justice. This is the best book for anyone who ever wanted to see the edgier and raw side of love! Follow the adventures of Anne, Neely and Jennifer as the rise to fame and ultimately end up in the only place left to go: DOWN into the Valley of the Dolls! Anyone can be a star, but only for a short time. After the glitz wears off, you need an escape. The best escape comes in the form of a bullet-shaped pill. DOLL! Blessed DOLL! Try to be the same after you read the book. I know I wont ever be the same! Thanks to Jackie, I now understand the true meaning of self-sacrifice! What is a doll? The answer is up to you!

This book took me 2 days to read. I couldn't put it down. It taught me the reality of how many teens face problems such as drugs, and peer pressure. I have learned that money and fame isn't everything in the world. Life can be complicated. This book is about three friends which make mistakes througout their lives and end up paying the consequences. A great book in which will teach you and keep you entertained at the same time! Hope this helps.

This book is so good! I couldn't put it down. Although the story takes place starting in the 1940's and was written way in back 1961, it is very modern. I loved it!

I just finished reading the book again, and I found things that I had missed the first time around! Imagine! I never made the connection that these characters were based on people Jackie had known! I now can see why the novel was so controversial! Neely? Try Judy Garland! Helen? Try Ethel Merman! Jennifer? Try Marilyn Monroe! These had been just characters in her book until I read Lovley Me. I can now see where Helen was based on Ethel Merman. Although I must say, I was shocked to see where Neely was based on Judy Garland. But, in seeing this, I made the connection that although you think you know stars, for the first time, I see that even famous people have different sides that they show to others! I even learned some things about myself in reading this book! I see where I am like Neely in the way that I only take people for what they are and not what they want me to think they are. Having finished the book for the fifth time, I really relate to the childish way that Neely tries to manipulate the people in her life. The suicide attempt that happens after she is taken off of Let's Live Tonight almost matched the suicide attempt I had last summer when I couldn't stop drinking! I am forever in debt to Jacqueline Susann for showing me that fame isn't all it's cracked up to be! I have learned many valuable lessons in reading the book. Maybe I am not so bad off after all! Jennifer had a real talent for being honest and loving, but she never saw all that she could offer to someone. Never in my life would I have imagined that beauty could be a curse! An absolutely fabulous book about life and escapism! Once you read Valley, Mount Everest doesn't seem so beautiful after all!
