Unfair bastards! They gave me a “free” look at the first season (chapter, but it’s all done in character) and now I have to figure out how to get a hold of the next one. Anyway, book one is available here: http://amzn.to/1CpzdQd
It starts out with a hilarious pseudo-dump on the L.A. film scene, which to a Northern California boy is music to my ears (we got Lucas and Dolby, meat). Without going into a spoiler alert, let’s just say that a bunch of talented people get together and circumstances dictate that they get the hell out of dodge, and move to an area with a bit more potential: San Francisco, and simultaneously Silicon Valley. The business opportunities and the interactions are spot on, and relevant to the most ardent local. Good stuff all around.
The tambour of the writing is funny and bright, I can almost hear the Bratislavian
roots of the writers delighting my ears with their accents through the pages. There is a bit, OK a lot of autobiography in the story line but that is what makes it both endearing and credible. There are moments that only an L.A. native could know about, and then it takes an Eastern European twist. Brilliant!
The pages flew by, and of course they left it with a hook…
