Présentation de l'éditeur

Praise for Boob Tube:

"If you like Jackie Collins you will love this..."
- Bonnie Scotland (on Amazon.co.uk)

"This story was so addicting, I couldn't put it down. I gave it five stars, because when I wasn't reading this book, I was thinking about reading this book."
- S. Abraham (West Chester, PA, US) (on Amazon)

"I don't watch soaps, but that didn't keep me from enjoying Boob Tube. At first, I was amused by the ridiculous obsessions of the soap stars, but it is probably too close to the truth to be laughable. All the same, the authors made it entertaining and added an element of suspense that kept me reading when I should've been doing other things. Well written, great plot, spectacular ending!"
- Diane Adams (on Smashwords.com)

Welcome to Boob Tube, the novel that takes readers behind the scenes of daytime television soap operas.

When Actress Gina Martin lands a role on a top daytime soap, she soon finds herself immersed in a glamorous world of hidden secrets and dangerous temptations. Will Gina survive the Hollywood machine, or will it consume her?

Boob Tube introduces the reader to a cast of colorful characters and stories inspired by real events. As research for the novel, the authors conducted confidential, behind-the-scenes interviews with dozens of soap opera industry insiders (actors, agents, managers, hair & makeup professionals, fan club managers, writers, etc.) who dished stories stranger than fiction. The authors wove their stories into Boob Tube, a novel that some fans have alternately described as fun, eye-opening or deeply disturbing. After reading Boob Tube, you might never view celebrity the same way again.

About the authors: Lesleyann Coker is a former reporter for Soap Opera Weekly Magazine. She now writes the Entertainment Bytes column for Forbes.com, and also contributes to the Huffington Post. Mark Coker writes for the Huffington Post, is the founder of ebook distributor Smashwords, and is a former Silicon Valley publicist. This is their debut novel.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Much like a Jackie Collins novel 24 octobre 2010
Par L. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Being a long time fan of Ms. Collins I found the Coker's story to be similar in nature. This is not to say it is as good or that Collins needs to worry about new competition...but I enjoyed reading this story for all the same reasons I am a Collins fan.

I disagree with a previous reviewr regarding the characters being interchangeable. I found each of them quite well devleoped especially the 2 protagonists Gina and Jason. The reader can feel what these two are feeling as well. Simon is reaaly made out to be a leech. Maybe too much so but given this type of novel it was fun to read about such a dirtbag!

Unlike the other reviewers I enjoyed the twist in the ending. Cheap attempt at surprise? Yes it was but again part of what made the book so fun. If you like a mindless entertaining read to escape reality...which is why I AM such a big Jackie Collins fan....then read this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The real soap opera behind the TV soap opera 10 octobre 2010
Par more books! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This fictional story is about the cast and crew of a day time soap opera. There is plenty of romance and scandal, drugs and eating disorders, as well as a good story line. The story contains many of the stereotypical characters including the naive newcomer who is corrupted by the evil manager, the aging diva, the bratty child actor, etc. The authors apparently interviewed many soap insiders prior to writing this story so I have to assume a fair amount of accuracy in the details - frightening. My only complaint is the ending which was abrupt and confusing.
Overall, an entertaining story. Not appropriate for teens.

I found this book to be quite an enjoyable read. I have watched my share of soap operas and this behind the scenes story was a lot of fun. I was not expecting the twist at the end! I highly reccommend this for a fun, escape from reality read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Damn Good Read! 16 janvier 2011

You need not be a fan of daytime soap operas to enjoy Boob Tube. I haven't watched a soap in 45 years. Nor am I a fan of Hollywood celebrity stories. But Boob Tube breaks the mold; part mystery, part romance, all well researched, lots of interesting characters, a real nail biter as you approach the end of the book, and a very twisted but satisfactory conclusion. And the price is right!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Story - Bad Ending 24 octobre 2010
Par Heather A - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was really enjoying this story... until the ending. The book feels unfinished and I feel let down. Seems almost like there should have been a "to be continued" tacked on to the last page.
