Honestly, you have to kind of ignore the whole killing part of the book. Joe and Dani's desire to kill anyone seems a bit of a stretch, because they are made out to be empathetic people. However the way the author works it out is pretty clever and it doesn't ruin the story.
The story flows effortlessly from plot point to plot point, and I honestly didn't know what was coming next. I wish this book had a wider audience, it's so intriguing and unlike anything else. There is obviously some black humor that comes from the whole Killing-the-Kordovas- thing, but it sits right next to real heart and honesty.
This is a book I'd like to force onto people, people who don't have ebook readers or just haven't heard of it. It's a very fun and funny read, probably the most so I've ever read.
Danni is a struggling romance novelist. After Joe Collins, a man who hovers on the outskirts of fame, overhears her rant about her "nemesis," a bestselling author who writes drivel, Danni turns her frustration into a stand-up comedy act.
The four Kordova sisters, Krystal, Kaylee, Kandace, and Kassie, are the stars of the hit reality show Kordova (Not So) Konfidential, currently the most watched show, reality or otherwise, TV. Krystal's boyfriend is rapper Koko Puf. Her signature perfume is Taÿnt.
Unbelievably popular reality show? Chuck full of K's? Kome on, you kan get it!
When Danni manages to convince Krystal she's the new ghostwriter for Krystal's autobiography, she finds a potential new outlet for both her taste for satire and her writing talent.
After Fletcher Prince, a comedian who used to be a college professor, steals material from Joe, the book takes an unexpected turn. And the quirks and twists continue, including a delicious turn of events for Danni and her "nemesis."
The hilarious book pulls in the reader in the first sentences. The satiric thrall and comedic take on social issues continues throughout Danni's adventures. The commentary on television, comedy, and publishing hits its target over and over.
The book is well-paced and cleverly plotted and I giggled out loud through the whole thing. If you like dark humor with a side of dry wit, and especially if you've ever shaken your head in disgust at those people who are rich and famous for absolutely no good reason at all, then this short, offbeat novel is for you.
