    epub æ Seeing Stars é Paperback ñ diane hammond Seeing StarsI'll start with the good this was an interesting read if you find yourself curious about the inner workings of Hollywood and what it's like to search for the big break Talent agents always have their hands out for money; casting directors are brutal and harsh; fellow actors try to get along while competing for the same roles; directors are ruthless; the industry is a jungle The bad I found it difficult to like or care for most of the characters Bethany is entitled and a bit spoiled Ruth is horribly naive and selfish and practically everyone else is just a jerk and doesn't even try to hide the fact I didn't even like Hugh; he treated diabetes like it was a diagnosis of stage four bone cancer and he was going to fight for his very life Fortunately there was no ugly even though I expected it The writing was uite solid and the research at least was thoughtfully done This saved it from receiving two stars instead of three

    epub æ Seeing Stars é Paperback ñ diane hammond Seeing StarsSeeing Stars is the story of wannabe child actors and actresses and the lengths their parents will go to to see their dreams come true Bethany Rabinowitz wants to be a Hollywood star and her mother believes she has what it takes So they leave everything behind including Mr Rabinowitz and enter the world of Hollywood desperation From the horrible way producers treat these impressionable young kids to the manic drive their parents succumb to in the search for success all of Hollywood's dirty seedy sides are exposed In the end I just found this book depressing Seemingly reasonable and loving people as well as dirty rotten ones were constantly making terrible choices having lost all sense of perspective in the race for fame I didn't have much respect for the characters and I didn't like many of them either I loved some of Dianne Hammond's other books I will eagerly await her next one and hope she is back to funny entertaining

    epub æ Seeing Stars é Paperback ñ diane hammond Seeing StarsI thoroughly enjoyed this book was hooked from the beginning and found myself thinking about and missing the characters once I was done Ms Hammond has written a wonderful story about the pursuit of dreams about family born and made and very much about conseuences of all kindsThe writing is superb as are the characterizations but best of all is story In this age of 15 second fame and reality TV Ms Hammond captures the desperation of those looking for their big break their moment in the sun that these are children whose parents are often as or desperate than they are is what makes the book a worthwhile read Ms Hammond has written a book that goes on the list of favorite book
