Last Night at Chateau Marmont
November 14, weisbergwr Will Brook and Julian be able to survive their newfound fame, even with all of the paparazzi and rumors that surround them?
It was tough having two jobs, but it was worth it to subsidise Julian’s undiscovered genius. Mar 29, Elinor rated it really liked it. Enjoyable as a little something between more challenging books. It read realistically, and each character had a distinct voice. Create a free website or blog at WordPress. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. While reading other reviews, I was extremely surprised to find that everyone felt bad for Julian and thought that Booke was “selfish”.
Can her marriage survive the events of that fateful night at Chateau Marmont? Jun 12, Liviania rated it really liked it. It has every emotion.
Anyway, it was solid three-star fluff with a rather sweet ending. Like in The Devil Wears Prada, the author has again portrayed the dark side of fame. I felt angry at her for behaving like a “doormat”. I could empathize with Brooke. Maybe if you enjoy that kind of thing, you will like that.
My first thought was to scream: One becomes successful and the other gets left behind I usually do not read or even like books involving celebrities or having Hollywood as the backdrop.
The same thing you could find written on the back of the book. Don’t get me started on the story, if there ever even was one. Give this book a go, it won’t disappoint! Imagine two people in a marriage, or for that matter, any relationship.
Probably, this is because I saw the woman’s perspective. His character completely changed. Then, the characters aren’t that likeable either.
The middle of the book got a bit monotonous for me – there were just descriptions of parties and events. If you like to read People magazine and soak up po I chose this book for a purely frivolous reason. The roller coaster ride of emotions that Weisberger took me on, combined with a scandalous chick lit plot and some important lessons we learn from Brooke and Julian, earns this book a five star rating from me!
The ending was not spectacular at all. But success doesn’t necessarily equal happiness. It could have been much better exploited. So it was kind of unbelievable that he turned into such a chauvinistic jerk.
But it is also predictable and the path things are going is is not hard to foresee from the first chapters. I wasn’t excited to read this after seeing the rating but I’m a Lauren Weisberger fan and being a fan means reading every book they have written I loved “The Devil wears Prada”. But, the movie was great! I wanted to believe Brooke and Julian loved each other. We’ve seen him sing the same crap every week for years. The author did an incredible job of making her characters and their lives seem very believable even though the idea of your husband becoming a rock start is pure fantasy!
Honestly, I disliked Julian from the start. But Brooke knew she couldn’t miss his big night. Then the publicity hits, the constant travel starts and Brooke is left in the background and alone.
I sympathized with the situation, was happy when things went right, and rolled my eyes when stupid decisions were made.
Review: Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger |
I won’t give up on this author yet, but I’m hoping Weisberger will once again deliver a novel as juicy and delightful as The Devil Wears Prada. Brooke should be ecstatic, as it’s all they have ever wanted, but she finds herself struggling with their time apart and being dissected by paparazzi at every turn.
Brooke knew she shouldn’t let this affect her self-esteem, but it was hard not to worry whether size 10 was a bit porky. There were also lots of exaggerated scenes like the description of his gigs and cliches Hayley, but even she was solved without anything more juicy happening.
The biggest one being how completely clueless this couple was about Julian’s success.
