In KILLING MONICA Bushnell spoofs and skewers her way through pop culture, celebrity worship, fame, and even the meaning of life itself, when a famous writer must resort to faking her own death in order to get her life back from her most infamous creation--Monica. With her trademark wit and style, KILLING MONICA is Bushnell's sharpest, funniest book to date.

I enjoyed it despite the low ratings.
Despite the reviews, I didn't think this was that bad of a book. I mean it wasn't a literary masterpiece, but I found it to be very entertaining. There was a lot of mystery and secrets going on, one you didn't even realize until the very end. I'm pretty sure also that there was a lot of spoofing of the entertainment industry as well.
A story of poverty, riches, special girlfriends who turn into mortal enemies and back again, a man marrying for money and a woman hell bent for revenge are just a few of the subplots going on in this book. I seriously think the mob should have done the concrete block with chains into the river for the revenge, but alas no.
I truly enjoyed this book and found it well worth my time to read. I recommend it.

Save Your Money - Bad Screenplay Dressed Up As Book
No secret that major motion picture studios want to see if a book is a success before spending $$$$$$$ to make it into movie. Unlike her previous novels, this is a screenplay dressed up as a book. It's basically a written audition for her to try to get a movie deal. In PR promo interviews, she told reporters that she has already written movie theme song, and performed and self produced a music video of her song.
This book was awful. I have read all of Bushnell's books and this was a huge disappointment. If you're looking for a good beach read, look elsewhere.
