I love the concept of the book and enjoy learning bits of people's lives. I think the book might be better for a slightly more mature generation or those who know more celebrities as I did not know many of the people in the book and there was some assumed baseline knowledge in some of the chapters.
It would be a great book to dip in and out of rather than reading it straight through as it did get a little repetitive. As happens with a book like this there are chapters I enjoyed much more than others.
Overall it is an interesting read and well collated. I loved how Claire Halliday finished with her own story.
