Book Review: "It's All Your Fault" by Paul Rudnick
I could see the idea of this book within a few pages. Kind of a Lindsay Lohan (at her worst) on a Hangover type weekend with a complete goody-two-shoes along for the ride. I had only hoped that it would stay entertaining enough for the ride. And this delivered! The actual events that take place are completely over the top, and very comical. There are some great one liners in here. Also the exaggerated stereotypes were hilarious! Granted, I am not one who would be offended by any of this, but maybe someone could be? I really don't know. I just had fun with it.
Ultimately, this is a friendship book and looks at trying to get back a friendship that was needed but almost/hopefully not completely ruined. Catey and Heller need to talk about what happened, but neither really wants to do it. So circumstances force the issue, of course, but you can feel how much it helps. It also makes Catey get off her damn high horse, which was gratifying as well. The bottom line is that this is between the two girls, and no boys get involved to muck it up on them. Well, there are those two actor guys... but that hardly even counts.
This is just pure entertainment with a nice little friendship story in there too.
