Daddy's Girls is a page-turner granted, but it's about four ridiculously advantaged and priveliged (and very thin) women who probably don't know the price of a loaf of bread and the or two pints of lager. Ok, I admit it I'm a northern nondescript who thought Louboutin was a type of car and Jimmy Choo sounded like a train, but normal ignorance aside. Daddy's girl does what it sets out clearly to do entice the reader into a world that (the majority of us) will never step into. There's designer labels on every page, every outfit is described, every location savoured over, every meal leaving your mouth watering for a taste of the experience. You can lap it up in around three hours and yet you still go back to it. Tasmina Perry has nearly done what JK Rowling finally conquered which was to suck readers into a wonderful world and yet still leave them gagging for more. However the downsides are - the book does have a very predictable storyline and the majority of the characters are very one-dimensional and very predictable ie, the spoilt actress who finally learns to take responsibilty, the lawyer who finds her conscience etc..
I do have to agree though the author has written a pretty semi-autobiographical account and she came from magazine journalism of which most of the magazines gave stellar reviews, so I'm quite skeptical that way.
Conclusion - it's a good book to read on holiday or if you're bored, but I hope it doesn't win any serious prizes as Tasmina Perry has a lot to do to convince me that she's a serious author.
