The book can be roughly divided into 2 parts 1st part is all about the rags to riches story about the main character, which is quite entertaining with shades of Master of the Game 2nd part is all about parties, concerts, parties, conspiracies a really tame endingIt could have been really great but not disappointing A page turner So 3 stars.
