Excellent writing and somewhat interesting but too busy for me. Two parallel stories are being told within one plot, and I found exhausting going between them back and forth every other chapter. Otherwise, it's a story about someone who has too much money, little less common sense and a very strong adventurous spirit for anything lacking moral principles or requiring good judgement. The main character is so real - you may also really hate or admire her - depending on who reads the book. I found her disgusting. Enough said.

Very different - a roaring good read - read in one day. Another dysfunctional family story - and stories within stories. And then there's the mob, JFK, the Rat Pack!
