I was given this book by a friend who told me it was one of the best books she has ever read. With that in mind, I was excited to read this book. However, I did not like how the book was written. The book is a compilation of letters and faxes written by the self centered Olivia, a movie producer in Hollywood. The letters are all written by Olivia to her sister Maddie (who is dying of cancer), her friend Tina, her ex Michael, parents, doctors, and various people in Hollywood. The problem with this is that the reader never sees any of the letters that were written back. So, it is a one sided continuous story that never seems to end. I never felt a connection with any of the characters. Basically, it was not uplifting or depressing, sad or happy, just neutral.
