About book: You can definitely tell this book was a novelized version of a movie. Much of the writing seems like stage direction and dialog. It was focused in the extreme on the interactions between the characters: Coco and Igor. It felt like the world of the book was incredibly small because of this but still I felt compelled to keep reading because the interactions were enough to make me wonder how the break-up would happen. It is an interesting book and a quick, fun, read. It is just not a book for people who want a lot of detail and complex writing structure. In hindsight I changed my rating from 3 to 2 stars. It was a fucking depressing read. It wasn't a good, slightly comforting depression either just straight up sad. The story revolves around Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky and the summer affair they had at Coco's newly purchased country home. It was a pathetic affair. Igor taking 20 minutes from his afternoon to be carnal with Chanel in his studio which is conveniently located under his bedroom and is resident to his despondent wife who happens to ignore the obvious truth of the twos affair, (despite being told otherwise by Igor at confrontation), because what more is a bedridden wife with 4 or 5 (can't seem to remember at this point) children to do?With that said whether or not the writing deserved a mere 2 star rating is hard to say at this point (it has been a while since I completed the book and clearly hasn't made that much of an impression on me as represented by my indifference to really care) but it was extremly satisfying and then embarrassing when the two finally (unoficially) ended the affair. Do I regret reading the book with the inability to unread and forgot it? No, of course not, I just wouldn't read it again.

I'm midway through...Not super engrossed, but giving it a chance. Definitely planning to finish it!

Trashy romance novels aren't actually trashy when they're about Stravinsky... right? Right?
Karlyyy
I'll watch the movie instead. It's not well written and didn't grab my attention.
shhh
I didn't care for the use of the present tense throughout or the writing style.
