Reseña del editor

When handsome twenty-five year old Fillip wins the American Green Card Lottery, his dreams of being a Hollywood Costume Designer come a leap closer. But Hollywood is a huge shock, moving from his cosy, comfortable life in London to the cut-throat world of Tinseltown. Then a stroke of luck first meeting leads to a job with fading actress Veronica Madison - a movie star on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Soon Fillip is pulled into the dark and hilarious world she inhabits, surrounded by the famous (and infamous) residents of the Hollywood Hills. Fillip faces a choice, to make his dream a reality should he become a manipulative fame-hungry wannabe? Or should he choose happiness and return to the love of his life he left back home in London? Bitch Hollywood is a hilarious celebrity comedy about the trials of life and love in the city where dreams are supposed to come true. 'Bitch Hollywood is everything a comedy should be and more.' (Five Star Book Reviews) 'Not a moment was lost in throwing the reader straight into the madness that is Hollywood!' (T. Carter, Amazon Reader) 'Just fabulous. Stop everything, sit down and read!' (Lorraine Sears, Amazon Reader)

Lost in Crazy Town by Robert and Jan Bryndza is a delightful read. The story starts off with the main character, Filip, moving to Hollywood from Europe, having gotten a chance at a green card to live and work in America. Filip is leaving behind everyone he knows, including his boyfriend David. They both had gotten their dream jobs, a continent away from each other. Instead of trying to work it long distance, they decide to go their seperate ways. Filip's dream job was to be a Costume Designer for films and he makes his way alone to do just that. When he arrives in Hollywood, expecting to have a friend to help him settle in and show him around, he gets totally culture shocked, as that friend just leaves him hanging. In a strange new town, in a whole different country, Filip must try to make his way and makes his dreams come true. The first "friends" Filip meets is another gay couple, Hillary and Derek. Hillary is a show-stealer that you love to hate, seemingly manic-depressive and desperate to sell his beauty line. Filip lands his first job with Veronica, a washed-up actress that is trying to get her career back. With a whole cast of quirky characters, Lost in Crazytown is a dark, gut-busting comedy about the trials of life and love in the city where dreams are supposed to come true.

Lost in Crazytown had me laughing and rooting for Filip from the get go. Filip is a memorable character, full of whit and a sarcastic attitude nobody in Hollywood seemed to get.He had me whooping it up and cheering him on. Hillary was a piece of work, seeming to have loads of money but such a penny-pincher that he served chips and dips for dinner! Veronica was the straight up Diva of Hollywood, having some moments of genuine niceness, but most of the time leading Filip around by a string. Filip admittedly got caught up in the Hollywood lifestyle, losing touch with himself and his family, but managed to bravely make it through people wiping dogs butts, manic-depressive friends, ass jet toilets, farting Frutarians, and dead dogs... not to mention crazy, everyday living and jobs for Veronica. Filip finally finds himself in the end and what an ending it was! I highly recommend stopping by CRAZYTOWN to anyone who likes to laugh! I give it 5 stars for originality and the ability to make me laugh until I almost peed my pants! (LOL).

Quotes from the Book:

"No, she was literally full of it. We had to use the high pressure pipe..."

"The ass jet water was a little cold."

"If you are what it is to be successful in Hollywood then I'd rather fail and have a life."

I have read a couple of Robert Bryndza's books before-published under the 'Team Bryndza' label-'The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard' and 'Coco Pinchard's Big Fat Tipsy Wedding' and how fabulous they are! I am eagerly waiting for the third in this series so was really pleased to find this book written by Robert Bryndza and his partner Jan. The writing is seamless-I don't know how they do the writing together, I don't know how they divide who does what but I really can't tell that it is by two people, it's not disjointed at all, it flows so well as if one author, it really works so well. It is quite a short book but it's written so concisely, there is so much packed into these pages, some real comedy gems. It's something different, totally unpredictable. I love the new title and the fantastic new cover. I have to admit that I have seen this book flash up at me via the amazon recommendations but it was called Bitch Hollywood and the cover didn't grab me. This cover really caught my eye, it's spot on for this book. I know it shouldn't really matter but if a book looks good it makes you want to read it. If the book is also great that's even better. Some great comedy here, it's a real hoot. If the authors read this review-I'm intrigued to know what the snack 'Schnitzels' are? I don't like to give away any of the scenarios in a review so as not to spoil it for future readers but I've just had a look through my 'notes and highlights' and there are numerous. So many great moments. This book doesn't have the same style as Robert has adopted for the two Coco Pinchard novels in that it isn't written through a series of emails, it's just normal prose. This is of course ok but I do like Robert's new style as in the Coco books, I think this works really well and the photo attachments to the said emails also help give those books a real feel for the action. I hope the third instalment of the Coco series also has this style. One instance where I missed this writing style was where Veronica and Filip were texting-it would have been a nice touch to put a photo of the said text on a mobile in the book-now I've seen this sort of thing in the other Team Bryndza books I kind of expect it now! This is a brilliant little book yet with so much substance.

My Goodreads review was short, and sweet. I will give a little more here as this site gets a much wider audience. This book had it all. Although, I would classify this as a comedy, it certainly also gives us a touching look at the struggles some face when trying to make it in Hollywood. The typical stereotypical Hollywood personas are comically exaggerated here in order to make a point. I won't give away anything, but I was left satisfied with not only the ending, but how the MC handled himself when faced with the sheer selfishness of those wrapped in the Hollywood fame race.
You will not regret this delightful, and quick read.
