My only issue with the book how Madison always portrays herself to be this sweet, well-meaning, non-gold-digging girl who got caught up in this world by sheer inertia. Yes, I do believe that she wasn't as financially motivated as some of the other girlfriends. Yes, I do believe that, in some weird, twisted way, she was in love with Hef. But in the telling of her story (how she arrived at the Mansion, how she ended up staying and becoming a girlfriend), she always made it seem like the fame and notoriety were the absolute furthest thing from her mind, and were nothing more than an unfortunate side-effect of being a girlfriend. She made it seem like she was simply looking for a place to stay, a couch to crash on. I often wanted to talk back to the book and say, "Come on, Holly! Who do you think your fooling?" We're all human. We all dream of fame and fortune. There HAD to be some part of her selfish brain that was screaming at her, "DO IT FOR THE MONEY! DO IT FOR THE FAME! ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BANG AN OLD GUY AND YOU'RE SET!", but she would have us believe otherwise. By painting herself out to have nothing but the noblest of intentions, she lost a bit of credibility with me. I mean, c'mon. It's Playboy!
I'm not here to judge you, Holly. I'm happy that things turned out well and I wish you continued happiness and success. But can you please spice things up a bit? Tell us about the parties! There had to be something fun or interesting or exciting happening in the mansion. At least name some celebrities and share some anecdotes! This didn't just have to be your chance to tell your side of the story to prove the haters wrong about who you are as a person.
This book was very well paced - I had a very hard time putting it down. I also loved her voice. She was a pleasure to read. She came across as charming, intelligent, and down to earth. I do have to admit that the pacing of the story slowed down for me when she left the mansion to pursue other things, but that is likely because I found the mansion part of her life read more like fiction than real life.
Overall, I absolutely loved this book and recommend it to anybody who feels that they can handle the subject matter. I loved it for what it was, not for what it stood for or for what the message was. It was well written and intriguing. This book is probably one of the most interesting memoirs I have ever read.
