So many great moments. This book doesn't have the same style as Robert has adopted for the two Coco Pinchard novels in that it isn't written through a series of emails, it's just normal prose. This is of course ok but I do like Robert's new style as in the Coco books, I think this works really well and the photo attachments to the said emails also help give those books a real feel for the action. I hope the third instalment of the Coco series also has this style. One instance where I missed this writing style was where Veronica and Filip were texting-it would have been a nice touch to put a photo of the said text on a mobile in the book-now I've seen this sort of thing in the other Team Bryndza books I kind of expect it now!
This is a brilliant little book yet with so much substance. View 1 comment. Bitch Hollywood as got to be one of the funniest books I have read but amongst the humour there is some very touching scenes that have my tears of laugthter becoming tears of a different kind.

Filip was a great character as he tried to find work and settle into Hollywood life. He seemed like too nice a guy to fit into Hollywood lifestyle, I loved his sarcasm and how nobody in Hollywood understood it. Filip first job in Hollywood comes when Veronica offers him the job as her stylist, the washed up star is looking for momentum that will lead her back into the spotlight and she will step on whoever she as to to get her there Filip can even stand by her side and go along for the ride or he can leave.
Again Veronica had me laughting determined to be back in the spotlight her actions sometimes lead to hilarious consequence. I really enjoed reading this book. I laughed so hard and would highly recommend it. This guy has got to be my new fav. I love Robert Bryndza's style of writing, his humour is incredible.
Characters are developed beautifully. All I wanna know now is who the hell is Veronica Madison? I hope I never cross path with her. LOVED this book. Can't wait for another book from this author.
Fillip has just moved Hollywood in hopes of becoming the next big costume designer. He has left behind all of his friends and family, along with his boyfriend, David, for this one chance at his dreams. So naturally, nothing is going to go right for him. As soon as he steps off the plane, Fillip is left to fend for himself in this brand new city filled with fake, superficial wannabe royalty. By chance, Phillip meets Derek and Hillary, a pair of very atrocious men, who introduce him to Hollywood m Fillip has just moved Hollywood in hopes of becoming the next big costume designer.
By chance, Phillip meets Derek and Hillary, a pair of very atrocious men, who introduce him to Hollywood movie star Veronica Madison. From there, Fillip is thrown into the craziest and hilarious situations and left wondering if this is all truly worth it to make it in Hollywood. I am very happy to report that I love Bitch Hollywood just as much.

From the very start, you know things aren't going to go well for Fillip. The friend who promised to show him around and take under his wing has taken off and Fillip is left to navigate the city alone. Fillip is forced to make friends where he can, which leads us to Derek and Hillary more on them below. Fillip himself is a mostly likable character.
Funny, a little too caring and too much of a nice guy.
Of course, once he starts hanging out with the wrong people this starts to change. But even so, I couldn't get enough of him. Of all the characters in all the books I've read, I think Hillary has to be one of the most ridiculous and repulsive men ever. He is concerned with only himself and acts like a spoiled two-year-old who didn't get the right color sprinkles on his ice cream cone.
Derek, his partner, enables every bad behavior Hillary can manage. I guess you could say that I loved to hate them. I just kept waiting for something horrible to happen to them and I knew I would laugh hysterically when it did.

Aside from Derek and Hillary, we also meet Veronica Madison, another piece of work, along with her entourage. While she isn't as openly ridiculous as Hillary, she has quite a few issues of her own. She is very selfish, clueless, and her friends are jerks. This also makes for some entertaining shenanigans that are not to be missed. Overall, this is another fantastic read from the Bryndza team. The characters are well written and quite believable, especially the over-indulged Hollywood stars. I kept picturing one actress in particular when envisioning Veronica Madison and it really brought the story to life for me.
I'm not going to tell you who just yet though. I want you to pick this up for yourself, read it, then come back and tell me who you saw playing her. We all wonder what it would be like to be friends with a Hollywood actor and what their lives must really be like. I think Bitch Hollywood is the perfect inside look into what life may be like for some of them. Fillip's journey is a crazy one, but also quite funny.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a clever, fresh read about the lives of the ridiculous. British Humour Meets Hollywood!! Bitch Hollywood by Robert and Jan Bryndza is a delightful read.
The story starts off with the main character, Filip, moving to Hollywood from Europe, having gotten a chance at a green card to live and work in America. Filip is leaving behind everyone he knows, including his boyfriend David. They both had gotten their dream jobs, a continent away from each other. Instead of trying to work it long distance, they decide to go their seperate ways. When he arrives in Hollywood, expecting to have a friend to help him settle in and show him around, he gets totally culture shocked, as that friend just leaves him hanging.
In a strange new town, in a whole different country, Filip must try to make his way and makes his dreams come true. Hillary is a show-stealer that you love to hate, seemingly manic-depressive and desperate to sell his beauty line. Filip lands his first job with Veronica, a washed up actress that is trying to get her career back.
CrazyTown - Toxic Lyrics | MetroLyrics
With a whole cast of quirky characters, Bitch Hollywood is a dark, gut-busting comedy about the trials of life and love in the city where dreams are supposed to come true. Bitch Hollywood had me laughing and rooting for Filip from the get go. Filip is a memorable character whos whit and sarcastic attitude, that nobody in Hollywood seemed to get, had me whooping it up and cheering him on. Hillary was a piece of work, seeming to have loads of money but such a penny-pincher that he served chips and dips for dinner!
Veronica was the straight up Bitch of Hollywood, having some moments of genuine niceness, but most of the time leading Filip around by a string. Filip admittedly got caught up in the Hollywood lifestyle, losing touch with himself and his family, but managed to bravely make it through people wiping dogs butts, manic-depressive friends, ass jet toilets, farting Frutarians, and dead dogs…not to mention crazy everyday living and jobs for Veronica. Filip finally finds himself in the end and what an ending it was! I highly recommend Bitch Hollywood to anyone who likes to laugh!
I give it 5 stars for originality and the ability to make me laugh until I almost peed my pants!go
