Book Review: Plastic by Frank Strausser *No Spoilers*

Welcome to my first book review on the blog!

Today, I come to you from my parent's dining room table because I got bored by myself at my place so I came here to bother them.

Last week I finished reading my Kindle copy of Plastic by Frank Strausser. Since then I have been ruminating on what I read to be able to bring you a book review that is as fair as possible and also as short as possible so you can get back to what you were doing.

Synopsis: We follow main character Dr. Harry Previn, a plastic surgeon, through some sticky business he gets dragged into involving Hollywood celebrities, agents, producers and that whole world.

Likes: I really enjoyed seeing the behind the scenes of the plastic surgery scene. Strausser did a good job of making me feel like I was the eyes on the wall at a surgeon/patient consultation and I was very much interested and invested in the surgical procedures.

Dislikes: No character development!!! I read this whole book and did not care for any of the characters, not even a little bit. I didn't even dislike them. Plain and simple just didn't care. The plot was boring and lacked action, suspense, adventure. Just a lot of dialogue and us listening to Dr. Previn's thoughts which were as entertaining as zoom meeting on how to conduct a zoom meeting.

Rating: I will use a tea cup scale to rate books on this blog. Just because I like tea and I drink tea when I read. One tea cup being BAD and five tea cups being GEWD! Strausser's Plastic gets 🍵🍵 two tea cups from me.

Have you read it? Did you like it?

Will you read it or pass after this review?
