Losing The Plot In LA
by Sonia Farnsworth
Sylvie is a trendy, LA party girl with more going on than she knows what to do with. Between apartment hunting, insane friends, a rapidly growing puppy, and one too many boys to juggle, she’s just trying to catch her breath. Will the craziness overwhelm her, or will she find a better path to move forward? Draw a bath, pour some bubbly, and join her as she tries not to Lose the Plot.
This book perfectly fits its title. Idiomatically speaking, it was crazy. Sylvie was crazy. Crazy about her life, crazy about apartment hunting, about her dog, about her best friend Lou, crazy about boys. From the beginning till the end, Sylvie indeed led a crazy life.
Literally speaking though, from the start, I got lost. I lost the plot. The first few chapters, I had not idea what to expect, what the whole book was all about because it got lots of narrative, very, very detailed and lengthy ones at that. Maybe I was not just used to that kind of writing and wordings, like slang and capital screaming words, etc. There were a lot of “blah, blah, blahs”, too! And then there were a lot of boys, too many to count on my fingers..
Satisfactorily speaking, it was a good book. On the second half of the story, the plot thickened, the characters became more animated and realistic, and I liked that Trouble (Sylvie’s dog), was well-taken cared of.
