The first book ms. Krantz wrote being "scruples" started out interesting and I couldn't put it down. However, when she introduces Vito and painstakingly writes about the film industry, it went down hill. I skimmed the last four chapters because it was too detail oriented , boring and I was hoping for a climax. Never came. If your a fan of ms. Krantz buy it. If you like more drama and are into a read that enthrals you, skip it. I intend to read scruples two, but I hope her passion for these characters in the series will improve. She, in my opinion, writes about her professional background with two much detail thus forgetting to write a " a good book".
Appalling amount of typos. Itunes should be ashamed!
This story is a fun beach read, even if Krantz can be a bit misogynistic at times, that can be attributed to the fact it is set in the late 1970's. But I could not believe how many typos there were!! I am used to finding at least 1 in every book - and this includes print books- but this had well over 20, and in the sample book at the end, entire sentences and paragraphs are missing. If this is how itunes re-types a book for e-publication, then our society is doomed to become less and less intelligent. It is shameful!
