America the Beautiful

America the Beautiful

After all the technical books I’ve read recently I fancied a change. I bought this after a typical surf around the internet. One minute I was looking at the prices of Compact Flash cards the next I’ve purchasing Valley Girl from iTunes. No, I don’t quite know how I managed that. But I did buy the song and liked it a lot. I must have missed it, back in the eighties, when it was apparently a big hit. At the time I was probably listening to W.A.S.P. and Slayer.

The book is entertaining enough for a ‘chick book’, I don’t mean that in a derogatory way, but it is about a twenty-something woman called America Throne and the trouble she has finding the right man. I think if you like the Candace Bushnell books Sex and the City and 4 Blondes, both of which I’ve read, then you’ll find America the Beautiful entertaining enough.
