    If you would have woken me up yesterday morning and told me I d spend all day reading about a horny 15 year old chocolate co heiress with mommy issues who goes to a fancy pants boarding school in New England, I would have looked you square in the eyes and politely told you to get out of my bedroom But sure enough, after clicking a few random links on an email, I found myself with a free e copy of The Chocolate Money, and after reading the first few sentences I was hooked and promptly proceeded If you would have woken me up yesterday morning and told me I d spend all day reading about a horny 15 year old chocolate co heiress with mommy issues who goes to a fancy pants boarding school in New England, I would have looked you square in the eyes and politely told you to get out of my bedroom But sure enough, after clicking a few random links on an email, I found myself with a free e copy of The Chocolate Money, and after reading the first few sentences I was hooked and promptly proceeded to slack the work day away hanging on every word Bettina Ballentyne confessed to me At first I thought this was just a funny, quirky and somewhat naughty coming of age tale which it is, in part , but it is so muchI literally felt like this was my childhood and I was reading an old diary I found in the basement somewhere, even though my actual childhood was 95% nothing like Bettina s Regardless, t...

    People will rate a book poorly for many different reasons For example, they think it doesn t live up to its potential, or the characters aren t likable, or they are offended by some of the subject matter I tend to give a book a poor rating when I can t become engrossed in it or when I think the characters are paper thin.On the other hand, I don t have to like the characters to like a book.That s the case with The Chocolate Money The characters were mostly horrible people, but I can understand People will rate a book poorly for many different reasons For example, they think it doesn t live up to its potential, or the characters aren t likable, or they are offended by some of the subject matter I tend to give a book a poor rating when I can t become engrossed in it or when I think the characters are paper thin.On the other hand, I don t have to like the characters to like a book.That s the case with The Chocolate Money The characters were mostly horrible peo...

    I really liked this book a lot It was funny but not in any sort of overt way There s this quote from Michael Chabon s Wonder Boys, which I read in high school which was eighteen years ago, horrifyingly enough but I still remember it quite well Rich people are never happy I mean, people with no money haven t got much of a shot at happiness in life, either, of course But rich people, I think, have, like, none You can argue with me all you want, but I will always believe this is true T I really liked this book a lot It was funny but not in any sort of overt way There s this quote from Michael Chabon s W...
