A quick and easy read I m surprised there are so many bad reviews, but it seems like there was too much focus on the first half of the book rather than the second half The main character is a 19 year old unlikable socialite with a trust fund and a huge drug problem, but it shows a change of attitude throughout rehab and afterwards with AA meetings I think if the book was a bit longer it could have focused evenon the afterwards, but to me it was still a decent book if you make it to the end. Normal for her is so not normal for me It was so fun getting caught up in this lifestyle that I will never live I thought this was a poor man s version of Glamorama, from a female point of view The things that would have made the bookinteresting were barely skimmed over, instead focusing on odd acronyms and boring details I m glad I didn t read the author bio until I was 10 pages from the end, otherwise my view would have been eventainted by the famous last name I wish that a book by an unknown author had been published in the place of this.It s short and a quick read, but it won t enrich your life in any way by reading it, just waste a few hours of your time if you re bored. a hard one for me to get into and I almost quit, but I hung in there and made it through Having a brother that is a recovering addict, it gave me a small glimpse at what his life was and is like at times. This is truly one of my favourite books of all time Molly Jong Fast really throws you into the life of this damaged socialite with such detail, you feel as if you are watching her every move I felt this was a very realistic rendition of a young woman s personal struggles with substances and relationships I would recommend this to anyone, but especially to those who enjoy reading about the lives of the rich and famous, as it definitely shows you a darker side to their world. Daughter of Erica Jong and Jonathan Fast, Molly s first book is witty, funny and totally relevant I loved it. I kept hoping, at some point this book would get to the story Doing drugs, going to rehab, and coming home are not my idea of a good story There wasn t any depth The author is from a privileged family, which she writes about in the book I wasthan halfway through and waiting for something to happen other than going from party to party being wasted, drunk and semi conscious I won t be passing this one on to any friends. Randa, What S Wrong With You Nothing I Mean, I M A Crazy Cocaine Addict With A Hankering For Heroin, But Other Than That, I M Just A Nice Jewish Girl From The Upper East Side With Prada Shoes How Could Anything Be Wrong Molly Jong Fast S Normal Girl Is Striking And As Funny As It As Real Inspired By Her Own Experiences Growing Up In The Decadent, Fast Paced Netherworld Of New York City S Jet Set, Jong Fast S Debut Novel Is A Hilarious, Hard Edged Walk Past The Velvet Rope At Just Nineteen, Miranda Woke Seems To Have It All Her Parents Are Famous Socialites, She S Already Been Written Up On Page Six Sixteen Times, She S On All The Right Invitation Lists, And Drugs And Alcohol Are Never In Short Supply But While Her Image Screams It Girl, She D Rather Be A Normal Girl, And The A List Feels Even Uncomfortable Than Her Manolo Blahnik Shoes In Fact, She S Become The Living Embodiment Of An Awkward Phase With Issues Than Harper S Bazaar Neither Xanax Nor Deepak Chopra Tapes Help And Now That Her Junkie Party Has Trashed Her Parents House, She Has To Liquidate Her Trust Fund To Pay Mom S Decorator For A Quick Fix But Worst Of All, Miranda Thinks She Just Murdered Her Own Boyfriend In An All Too Glamorous World Where The Cell Phone Is Always Ringing, Miranda Sees No Escape Other Than A Downward Spiral Of Cocaine, Valium, And Heroin It Takes Friends Who Offer Than Air Kisses To Force Miranda To Look In The Mirror And Get Some Help Very quick read Not recommended reading for prudes Unfortunately I didn t gain any insight or enjoyment from this story that is solely a monologue of a self centered drug addict not referring to the author. A spare, druggy novel of manners written by a precocious, reportedly druggy undergraduate ring any bells What does any of this mean and how bad does it look for all the indie authors out there who just want to write Well it does look that bad, bleak and dark Dont give up
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Normal Girl book, this is one of the most wanted Molly Jong-Fast author readers around the world.
