Backstage with the Original Hollywood SquareBackstage with the Original Hollywood Square by Peter Marshall
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I grew up watching Hollywood Squares and loved it. It was definitely one of my favorite games shows and as an 80’s kid I was a game show junkie. I was excited when I found this book on Kindle Unlimited but at 24% done, I’m adding it to my DNF shelf and giving it up. I am bored. to. death. reading this book. It’s not that I was expecting any shocking revelations or anything but this book is as dry as Aunt Suzy’s meatloaf. I’ll stick to finding old clips of Squares on Youtube.

I want to love this book. Everyone I know that has read this book loves it. I however, cannot get through it to save my life.


I just don’t like either of the main characters. Therefore, I don’t really care what happens to either of them.


In the beginning of the story, I was hooked. It was exciting. Kind of like the relationship between the main characters. (I can’t even remember their names right now and I was just reading this a few days ago) Anyway, it was exciting, like their relationship was. Then, it died. Again, like their relationship.


The husband gripes and complains and resents the wife and then the wife gripes and complains and resents the husband and in the end, I just end up resenting them both.


I’ve read it about halfway through and I do hope to pick it up one day and finish it… but, it won’t be any time soon.
