Book Review: Bright Young Things
Overall, this is a very entertaining read, but nowhere near the dramatic decadence of The Luxe. I'm expecting it to get a little better as the stories progress, because as anyone doing History GCSE knows, 1929 is the year of the Wall Street Crash, and that doesn't seem to have happened yet. Drama, debt and death is inevitable.
Read it if you like: The Luxe, The Great Gatsby, anything to do with the 1920s
Mark out of 5: 3.4
P.S. Please tell me I'm not the only person who thinks the girl on the cover's head looks way too small for her body?
