Dealing with television, movies and a screenplay all in one should make it an interesting concept, but I just could not get into this one at all.

With a name like Butterbugs you would think life would be interesting. But it’s not, not even a little.  His only dream is to act, so he drops everything and heads to Hollywood.  He is living in his car and running out of resources.  Even with his high hopes, he eventually becomes isolated from much of the LA scene.  He then begins to meet several other outcasts, but not all of them are bad.  When he gets his first screen test, things seem to be spiraling out of control.  With many other characters, it could be an interesting tale with many different directions.

Ok, I wanted to give this one a chance, and I did. I get what the author was trying to do, but it just wasn’t happening.  The story is really disjointed and even though it is set up more like a screen play, it just wasn’t easy to follow.  Too much of the first part of it goes on and on without getting to the reason for the story.  I have no doubt that some readers may find this more to their liking but I wasn’t one of them.  I’ll give anything a try once is my motto, but this one just didn’t work out for me.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
