    So LA Kindle ê Paperback So LA ePUBThe Short of It Never thought a book about the shallowness of Los Angeles could surprise me but it did The Rest of It Magdalena wasn’t always a Botox injected Juicy Couture wearing gal No life before her designer water empire took off involved a vineyard in Northern California a brother whom she absolutely adored and a simpler life; complete with a “tell it like it is” mother But when her brother Junah dies tragically she is completely and utterly destroyed The only way to get through it is to transform herself into someone other than herself Maybe then she can leave the pain behind and at least pretend for a while that she isn’t some pathetic creature pini

    So LA Kindle ê Paperback So LA ePUBThis novel is difficult to categorize At first blush it may seem like simple trashy chick lit but Bridget Hoida's work is so much than that In fact I would go so far as to say that part of the brilliance of this novel aside from the sharp prose is ways in which it defies the usual genre and sub genres with which the publishing world seems to workFirst let me say that I am fascinated by media that represents Southern Californian culture from 40s film noir to Pyncheon's The Crying o

    So LA Kindle ê Paperback So LA ePUBThis book talks about all of the stuff that I hate about LA I've only been once and it definitely was not my favorite place I'm definitely an East Coast girl who would be driven crazy by being in LA LA Land I wouldn't last that long This book is definitely about the darker side of LA Hoida's LA is not glamorous It's actually sort of dark especially for the main characterThe main character is great Magdalena is fascinating She comes to LA with her husband

    So LA Kindle ê Paperback So LA ePUBFacebookcomTheBooknaticshttpthebooknaticwordpresscom201 edited feb 22 2013 I want to start off by mentioning how much I love this cover By far the prettiest on my shelfIt's a racy realistic heart wrenching story about a girl from a uiet California town who made it big with her husband in Hollywood's favorite bottled water industry Though with the loss of her brother the five stages of mourning drives her into foolishness She realizes she's tried so hard to be like everyone else in LA plastic and fake with no morals and begins to feel as

    So LA Kindle ê Paperback So LA ePUBAt first glance So LA might draw you in with its gorgeous cover It might entice you with its chick lit feel However I can promise you that what is in these pages is so much than that A mixture of dry satirical humor and a no holds barred look at the culture that is LA this is a story that is hard to define What I can say is that it is brilliantI think it's fitting that I read this book while sitting in a 60 story sky rise in Downtown LA Overlooking the hub of the busiest parts of Wilshire Boulevard This is the setting that Hoida chooses for her book and it works wonders with Magdalena's story From small town girl to big city business owner Magdalena's point of view is a fresh and honest take of the high society that is Bev

    So LA Kindle ê Paperback So LA ePUBSo LA exists in the thin space between exploring the culture of Los Angeles and exposing it maybe passing off small judgments but never offering outright condemnation at most

    So LA Kindle ê Paperback So LA ePUBSo LA is a book that can probably be interpreted many ways depending on how you want to view Magdalena For me I saw her as a very fractured heroine and she was probably broken long before she got to LAShe's not what you'd expect her to be but then again none of the characters are She's part of a water empire only she's not really working at that her husband Ricky is She's busy doing nothing or rather the nothing that are LA things shopping changing her body and face etc On top of all of that she's grieving the loss of her brother
