3.0 out of 5 stars Quick Read with Laughs, June 9, 2012
By 
This review is from: Hollyweird (Paperback)
I picked this up in search of humor, and I found it. Aly and Des are your typical teenage girls who watch shows for the swoonworthy boys. When Aly wins a trip to meet hot sensation Dakota Danvers, the two girls freak out. Their dream trip to Hollywood turns into a nightmare when they find out that Dakota is the son of Satan on a mission to wreck lives. Told through the alternating perspectives of Aly and Jameson, Hollyweird follows their lives as they work to figure out Dakota's big plot.

While it was fun seeing Hollywood through the girls' worshipping eyes, I did find many of their actions and reactions naïve and without thought. They act based off pure emotion and don't think about their lack of special abilities when they push Jameson into accepting their help. If events didn't conveniently work in their favor, they could have easily lost their lives. Jameson was easily my favorite character. He's new to his work, but he acts with experience and reason.

What I did like about this story is easily the humor. Hollyweird is a quirky supernatural read filled with laughs and giggles. The characters are pretty generic, groomed for their roles in poking fun at Hollywood. Because of the humor, I found it funny how events conveniently worked in the characters' favor, and the girls' naïeveness made the story all the more interesting. The book is short and can be easily finished in one sitting. Recommended if you're looking for a quick, generic read and laughs.
