Format:Broché
This novel by reality TV starlet Lauren Conrad chronicles the lives of Jane Roberts and her best friend, Scarlett Harp, as they move to LA and become the stars of a reality TV show. The book, which is based loosely on Conrad's own life, is a little slow in the beginning, but picks up a bit once Jane and Scarlett are discovered at a club by a TV producer.

From that point on the two, though a little hesitant at first, decide to audition for the show and their lives change drastically.

While Jane takes to the cameras being around easily, Scarlett is not so excited and wonders what she got herself into. Throw into the mix two other cast members, Gaby, a total ditz, and Madison, a total witch with a nice girl facade, and things get even more complicated.

When Jane starts dating Jesse, who happens to be the best friend of her friend-slash-major crush, Braden, things spiral out of control quickly and the jealousy of someone Jane thought she could trust ruins her life in an instant.

With lots of run-of-the-mill Hollywood cliches (blondes, drugs, cosmetic surgery, etc), L.A. CANDY almost fails to deliver an original storyline. In addition, in pretty much every single chapter, Jane and her friends are drinking (usually vodka soda for Jane) making it seem to the unknowing person who has never been to LA that you can't have any fun in Tinseltown without being drunk.

It is a quick and light read that would be great for the beach or a day when you don't need any actual depth in what you're reading. However, the ending is a cliffhanger and leaves you wanting to know what happens to Jane next.

En 2009, pour rompre complètement avec sa carrière d'actrice, Lauren décide de laver son linge sale proprement dans un livre paru en 3 volumes. Son idée, écrire un roman inspiré de son expérience de la télé-réalité afin d'y dénoncer les dérives du système qui lui ont nui.

L'héroïne de son livre, Jane Roberts, se rend dans une boîte de nuit branchée avec sa meilleure amie, Scarlette Harp, afin d'inaugurer leur fraîche installation à L.A.
Là-bas, Trevor Lord, un producteur à la recherche de personnalité charismatique pour son nouveau "reality show", repère Jane, une blonde simple et mignonne, et Scarlette, une brune à la beauté sans pareil. Il les aborde, les trouve intéressantes et leur propose de les suivre dans leur quotidien afin d'en faire une série. Elles hésitent puis acceptent.
Elles se retrouvent alors à partager la vedette avec Gaby et Madisson, les deux autres actrices du show intitulé L.A Candy.
C'est le début d'une spirale extraordinairement infernale pour les deux jeunes femmes.
Trevor fait de Jane le personnage principale de la série. Cela attise les jalousies.
L'ambitieuse Madisson intrigue contre elle en collaborant avec la directrice de rédaction d'un tabloïd. Tandis que la crédule Gaby elle, tente d'attirer les caméras en ayant recours à la chirurgie esthétique, et en s'inventant une vie sulfureuse grâce à l'aide d'une publiciste sans état d'âme.

Il faut avant tout aimer les real TV show de MTV : Laguna Beach, The Hills et The City pour vraiment apprécier ces livres.
C'est un livre très plaisant qui se lit facilement même pour un(e) francophone.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 De la version télé à la version papier 29 novembre 2010
Format:Broché
Pour les fans ou amateurs de la série (presque télé réalité) The Hills sur MTV, ce livre est fait pour vous !
Lauren Conrad qui a participé à l'émission écrit ici sa première nouvelle -presque autobiographique?- concernant l'émission. Les noms des personnages ont été changés mais on retrouve ici la même ambiance que dans la série. De plus, quelques détails sur comment s'est formé l'émission nous sont dévoilés ici.
Le livre est en anglais et je ne sais pas s'il sera un jour traduit mais reste assez facile à lire pour ceux qui ont un peu de mal avec l'anglais.
L.A Candy est le premier opus de la trilogie de Melle Conrad qui compte en plus : Sweet Little Lies et Sugar And Spice.
Bonne lecture !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sweet summer reading 18 juin 2009
Par Madigan McGillicuddy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The book, about reality-tv star 19-year-old Jane Roberts certainly sounds like a semi-autobiographical journey for the author, the star of MTV's "reality" show, The Hills. I started on the assumption that it would be pure fluff. The story was an enjoyable quick read though and even a bit weightier than I had anticipated.

Naturally, the lion's share of the story centers around the social lives of Jane and her best friend Scarlett. They are both new to Los Angeles, starstruck and boy crazy. Despite being an attractive natural blonde, Jane considers herself a "plain Jane" while Scarlett is a confident brunette bombshell. Jane's just scored an internship with renowned event planner, Fiona Chen. Scarlett plans to coast through classes at USC while she decides what to do with herself. When Hollywood producer Trevor Lord starts talking to them in a nightclub, they initially assume that he's trying to hit on them... but eventually he convinces them to come for an audition for a new reality show filming in Los Angeles. In the interview, the producers are impressed with the girls' natural good-looks and unaffected demeanor. Just like that, they are in!

With the cameras rolling, Jane and Scarlett are soon treated to a new luxury apartment and VIP lifestyle. I liked the behind-the-scenes reality behind "reality" tv... the awkwardness of being miked, the staged "spontaneous" scenes... it all rang very true.

Of course, everyone's wondering whether L.A. Candy was ghostwritten. (And wouldn't it be the ultimate irony if it was?) A careful inspection of my copy didn't seem to reveal anything in the fine print... maybe Lauren Conrad really did write this herself! I can't help but think of one of the episodes from the first season of "The Hills" where Lauren is called into her bosses office. Her boss asks her, "Can you write?" and she nervously replies, "Um... Yes?" There's an eerily similar scene in the book between the character Jane and her boss, event planner Fiona Chen. Her demanding and cold boss suddenly turns into a warm mentor when the cameras are rolling.

While the celebrities mentioned are all fictional, the names of many of the businesses and designer-name items in the book are not. The name-dropping and general tone strongly reminded me of Cecily von Ziegesar's Gossip Girls and It Girl series.

The story's somewhat of a cliffhanger ending leaves everything definitely very much unresolved. Fans of MTV's "The Hills" or the genre that I'd term "Chick Lit Jr." will definitely be clamoring for more. Fortunately for them, Conrad has signed a 3 book deal, so there are certain to be at least 2 more installments in the series.

Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

Lauren Conrad, famous for playing herself on the MTV shows Laguna Beach and The Hills, has somehow been allowed to write a book for Young Adults, and the result is "L.A. Candy." Jane and Scarlett are best friends that move to Los Angeles together. While visiting a club one night, they are approached to appear on a reality show entitled L.A. Candy. After the girls agree to star in the show, the book follows their lives as they discover that Reality TV may not be as real as television makes it out to be.

I picked this book up hoping for a fun guilty pleasure read, but was ultimately disappointed by a few things.

First, Lauren Conrad is not the strongest of authors. The dialogue and the storytelling is quite flat and uninteresting at times. Hopefully as she releases more books, her writing skills increase, but "L.A. Candy" seemed quite amateur and I'm surprised that her publishing company allowed it to be released as it is.

Second, the pacing is quite off. 100+ pages are devoted to the set-up of the plot. Once the reality show starts filming, which should be the meat of the novel, it seemed like most details were rushed and glossed over. Plus, the conflict and the climax were ultimately quite weak which leads the reader unsatisfied.

Finally, the ending did not work at all. It is clearly meant to be a cliffhanger, but it feels more like the story is incomplete and is missing a proper conclusion. I am alright with books that want to excite readers for the next book in the series, but not when it makes the current book feel like a story that is missing a proper conclusion.

Despite being a disappointment, it was fun reading how the characters viewed how reality television really worked and how the editors could portray an event differently from how it really happened. Conrad's experience definitely added a bit of interest to the otherwise flat story.

Still fresh off her stint on "The Hills," Lauren Conrad's debut novel will definitely appeal to her fans of all ages. Despite a few questionable words, the majority of the book is otherwise quite clean. And while the book has been a hit, and I predict it will continue to sell well, I was disappointed by it and hope that Conrad improves with future books in the series. Conrad's experience and insider information with this industry definitely brought some credibility to this book, but the writing was weak, the characters were flat, the plot was rather uninteresting, and the ending was quite abrupt. These faults are too overwhelming and hard to overlook what could have been a great guilty pleasure book.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Another celebrity who thinks they can write 21 juin 2009
Par R. DuPont - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The writing is horrible, but I guess that's what to be expected from a reality t.v. celebrity. It's sad that these publishing companies are so into the easy ways to make money rather than some truly amazing up and coming authors that can't seem to get their foot in the door.

The characters are one-dimensional. There's not much description. And, the plot is atrocious. What did the ending of this book accomplish? HarperCollins needs to end this series before it starts and try some other authors.

Where's the passion I see in so many authors? This author just seems to see dollar signs and a way to bash some of "frenemies" without dealing with the fallout since she managed to change their names. When it comes to real life drama Lauren excels, but on paper she falls flat to muster up any sort of emotions in the readers for her characters. Stick to what you know Lauren.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Love Lauren, but LA Candy was like Grandma's stale hard candy 30 janvier 2012
Par Tiffani S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
DISCLAIMER: I'm 30yrs old, so I was definitely looking at it from a more "mature" view point, than maybe the intended audience; However, I felt the book was very flat. I read it in a weekend, and as I read, I was often left wishing it would "Hurry up & get to the good part.." I love Lauren Conrad's website,clothes & etc...but I just felt LA Candy should've been edited better. The story content was pretty weak and took so much time trying to elaborate on things that were commonly understood. I also found myself wishing that the names that were chosen weren't so "obviously" made up. I don't know if that even makes sense to anyone else but me, but it just seemed that you wouldn't have that many people in the same group with those kinds of names; I guess what I'm saying, is that they were either too crazy sounding or too plain (i.e. Scarlett Harp; Jane Roberts) There weren't many "normal- sounding" names, and it ended up being kind of distracting. I'm glad that I bought the first 2 books together, because the second book was notably better. Again, I am older, so my 15 or 16yr old self might have enjoyed this a little more. It was, however, great for passing the time when there's nothing on tv & you need your LC fix-- just don't expect to be intensely involved.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Dragged. Not as good as I expected, but not bad. 12 janvier 2011
Par Sirgoksalot - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I decided to pick up this series to see what the "hype" was all about. I heard that Lauren Corad's books were "really good" from a couple friends. It starts out as expected..but 200+ pages into the book, I was still bored and waiting for something interesting to happen. It was as if I was reading a manuscript of The Hills (maybe that was the intended purpose). It honestly DRAGGED until the end, with it's cliffhanger. And im not too fond of the way it was written. It was obviously written for young adults..or younger.

That being said, it's not necessarily a bad novel, it's completely what you would expect it to be. Im still going to read the second novel...since you have to in order to find out what happens..and since I purchased them as a set lol.
Just don't go with the hype and expect it to be phenomenal. You'll be more satisfied if you begin reading it with the impression that it's going to be boring or worse.
