Liked a lot. It was a quick easy read. Something that could be similar to a show I would watch where you know who Franny should be with but doesn't get with but may does, and want a sequel.
Competently written, rather predictable storyline. A decent light read.
I only read this book because it was written by Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls). The story was mildly entertaining and 100% predictable. An easy read but nothing special.
I rarely start a book and not finish it, but this one is one of them. I read 3 chapters and just couldn't relate to the main character. I love Lauren Graham as an actress (in Gilmore Girls and Parenthood), but now I think that she's just been playing herself in most of her work, so maybe she's not even a great actress?? I skipped to the end of the book and it just stopped in mid sentence, so I'm glad I didn't waste any more of my time on this book.
A fast enjoyable read of an actress struggling to make it in NYC. I imagine it was partially autobiographical or at least based on her own experiences when she started out.
The story is about a struggling actress on a self-imposed deadline, who is trying to make it as an actor in 1990s New York. It's a fun read. Graham really captured NY during that time period - loved the reference to the drug dealers in the parks with their whispered offerings, as I had the same reaction to them. Having heard Lauren Graham in various tv interviews, this book is definitely in her voice, and leaves the reader wondering how much truth is in this fictional novel.
Cute, heart warming, and inspiring story. I can definitely relate to Franny. Nice, quick read. I've been a fan of Lauren Graham's since Gilmore Girls. So if you're a fan, check out her book.
