Book Description

Madison Parker made a name for herself as best frenemy of nice-girl-next-door-turned-reality-celeb Jane Roberts in the L.A. Candy books. Now she’s ready for her turn in the spotlight and she’ll stop at nothing to get it. But with backstabbing friends and family, relentless paparazzi, and tabloid scandals she can’t control, Madison is going to have her work cut out for her. Plus, there’s a new nice girl in town—Carmen Price, the daughter of Hollywood royalty—who’s a lot more experienced than Jane was at playing the fame game. . . . Filled with characters both familiar and new, Lauren Conrad’s new series about life in front of the camera dishes Hollywood gossip and drama at every turn.

Unlike some of the other reviews, I actually read this book. I don't write reviews based on whether or not I like the author. I read all 3 of the LA Candy books. They were a fun quick read. I'm not going to compare her books to other books I've read because I like to read different books depending on my mood. The Fame Game is simular to the LA Candy books. It was a quick read and I enjoyed the story. If I liked the book, I give it 5 stars. I'm not going to over analyze her writing skills like some other reviews. I'm not going to act like some sophisticated reader who has something to prove by criticizing every little issue wrong with her writing. It's not that type of book. So, if you want to read a fun, quick story then it's a good book.

First Impressions: I'll admit that I'm not a huge fan of reality T.V. I've never watched The Hills or any of that stuff. I think I watched Jersey Shore one time, and once was more than enough. However, this isn't a reality show, so I'll judge the book by its own merits. I've read other books written by Lauren Conrad and they are all fun and well-written. I especially like the cover of this one since it makes me want a lollipop really bad.

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.

I was bored on my flight to New York City and decided to give in and pay $12 or $8. It continues on from the LA candy books and lets you see a different side of Madison. Of course there are new characters and add to the story line... season 2. I can't wait for the new book in October!

Format: Hardcover
First Sentence: Madison Parker had made Trevor Lord come to /her/ this time.

How I Acquired the Book: Borrowed from my town's library.

The Review: There are some books I read only because they reach no. 1 or whatever number on the bestsellers list, and I read them because I want to see what brought them there. L.A. Candy was one of those books, and so is The Fame Game. As soon as I started L.A. Candy, it became clear to me that this was a bestseller only because of its author, and certainly not because of its writing. The same goes for The Fame Game.

The Fame Game is a spin-off series off of L.A. Candy. Instead of Jane being in the spotlight this time, we get to see Madison be the star. This didn't seem that interesting of a concept at first, but then I began to get interested. Madison was, by far, the most interesting character in the L.A. Candy series. Jane was boring as heck. So, I thought, even though it's still about reality TV (which I do not enjoy), since the boring character is out and a cool character is in, this should be much better than L.A. Candy.

Well, it was better than L.A. Candy, but not by much. The characters, as I predicted, were very interesting and three-dimensional. Madison was the type of character you want to kill one minute, then the next, you feel so bad for her. The two new characters were a lot more interesting than Jane and Scarlett, and I liked them. The 2.5 stars this book deserves is all because of the characters.

Because the plot just doesn't work at all. Some parts were ridiculously overdrawn and boring, and I found myself thinking, "Fame Game? Ugh, maybe a better name for this book would be Brain Pain." It doesn't flow well; the majority of the book is a buildup to a climax completely unrelated to the buildup.

Fun book, easy to read! Her other books are just as good, you'll fly through them. Big font and not super long

The Fame Game was just awesome. Lauren Conrad has grown tremendously as a writer, but still maintains that light-hearted, dramatic quality that keeps the pages turning quickly. The Fame Game is a spin-off series from Conrad's L.A.Candy series, so you will probably want to read the L.A Candy books before diving into this novel.

The Fame Game is another reality show that follows Madison and Gaby from L.A. Candy, as well as two new characters--Kate and Carmen. While Kate was my favorite character because she is so down to earth and a genuinely nice character, I have to admit that Madison has grown on me. Conrad adds much more depth to Madison's character, and you can't help but sympathize with her.

The best part of The Fame Game is that it feels original. While reading L.A. Candy, I was constantly trying to figure out who was who on "The Hills." The Fame Game feels more like a work of Conrad's imagination. Of course, I imagine that the knowledge of fame-hungry up-and-comers and reality television comes directly from Conrad's own experiences.

As with all thrilling novels, The Fame Game ends on a cliff-hanger that will have you rushing out to buy Starstruck, the next novel in the series (slated to be released November 2012). I know I can't wait to find out what happens next--particularly for Madison and Kate. The Fame Game is the start of what is sure to be an amazing series!
