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 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."
WONDERFUL WRITING ... REALLY MADE YOU RELATE TO SOME OF THE CHARACTERS AND WANT TO SLAP SOME OF THE OTHERS...ALL IN ALL A GREAT READ... I STARTED reading after lunch and could not put it down until I finished (very early the next morning) but worth losing a little sleep over.;>} THANKS
Not too long ago I read and reviewed another of Robert Bryndza's books, The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard, and loved it. I am very happy to report that I love Bitch Hollywood just as much. From the very start, you know things aren't going to go well for Fillip. The friend who promised to show him around and take under his wing has taken off and Fillip is left to navigate the city alone. Fillip is forced to make friends where he can, which leads us to Derek and Hillary (more on them below). Fillip himself is a mostly likable character. Funny, a little too caring and too much of a nice guy. Of course, once he starts hanging out with the wrong people this starts to change. But even so, I couldn't get enough of him.
Of all the characters in all the books I've read, I think Hillary has to be one of the most ridiculous and repulsive men ever. He is concerned with only himself and acts like a spoiled two-year-old who didn't get the right color sprinkles on his ice cream cone. Derek, his partner, enables every bad behavior Hillary can manage. I guess you could say that I loved to hate them. I just kept waiting for something horrible to happen to them and I knew I would laugh hysterically when it did.
Aside from Derek and Hillary, we also meet Veronica Madison, another piece of work, along with her entourage. While she isn't as openly ridiculous as Hillary, she has quite a few issues of her own. She is very selfish, clueless, and her friends are jerks. This also makes for some entertaining shenanigans that are not to be missed.
Overall, this is another fantastic read from the Bryndza team. The characters are well written and quite believable, especially the over-indulged Hollywood stars. I kept picturing one actress in particular when envisioning Veronica Madison and it really brought the story to life for me. I'm not going to tell you who just yet though. I want you to pick this up for yourself, read it, then come back and tell me who you saw playing her.
We all wonder what it would be like to be friends with a Hollywood actor and what their lives must really be like. I think Bitch Hollywood is the perfect inside look into what life may be like for some of them. Fillip's journey is a crazy one, but also quite funny. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a clever, fresh read about the lives of the ridiculous.
