Gwen Cooper paints a very apt picture of life on South Beach in the 90's, when South Beach had really come of age . So, while cleaning and sorting through my book stacks, I pulled out "Diary of a South Beach Party Girl".

Gwen Cooper paints a very apt picture of life on South Beach in the 90's, when South Beach had really come of age again. The excess that she describes is not an exaggeration, and my guess is that this book is largely autobiographical, despite all the disclaimers in the prologue. I don't know how I came to own it, and I don't remember reading it before, but I figured it would give my emotions a Alright, so if you've already judged me for reading this, get out. (Ha ha just kidding, you can stay.

In her debut novel, former party girl Cooper smartly focuses on the fringe freaks who fueled the nightlife in the nauseatingly hip late 1990s South Beach: über-publicist Ricky Pascal, petulant heiress Amy, sexy felon John Hood and a host of bar workers and bar hoppers who hobnob with the rich even as they scramble to make their own rent. Rachel Baum-poet, aspiring publicist and hard-partying diva-narrates the frenetic scene from a prime VIP-room seat.

Are you sure you want to remove Diary of a South Beach party girl from your list? Diary of a South Beach party girl. 1st ed. by Gwen Cooper. Published 2007 by Simon Spotlight Entertainment in New York.

South Beach in the late 1990s is a town of blink-and-you'll-miss-'em nightclubs populated by celebrities, models, mobsters, heiresses, drug dealers, drag queens, and fun seekers of all stripes. It's a place where the famous come to party like locals, the locals party like rock stars behind velvet ropes, and the press is savvy enough to know what not to report. Rachel Baum is a sheltered, career-oriented everygirl when she moves to South Beach from her quiet Miami suburb, searching for a life less ordinary. Quickly making friends among SoBe's most exclusive scenesters, she spends her days building a career and her nights building a reputation. But in a town where friends become enemies faster than highs become hangovers, the life less ordinary turns into more than Rachel bargained for. As she pursues the endless party in penthouses, dive bars, after-hours clubs, and cocaine speakeasies, Rachel struggles to balance her goals and ambitions with the decadence and excess -- especially her drug-fueled, on-again off-again relationship with Yale-graduate-turned-addict John Hood -- that threaten to destroy everything she's always worked for. With tremendous wit and razor-sharp insight, Diary of a South Beach Party Girl portrays the innermost sanctums of South Beach's privileged Beautiful People through the eyes of a no longer innocent heroine.

Reading Dairy of a South Beach party girl, I felt like I was really in South Beach. The author did South Beach justice in her descriptions of the architecture and vibe of the place. She made me want to live in South Beach! The main character was relatable, in that we all felt at one point that we played it safe, and wished we could live a more fabulous life. The author does a great job proving the grass isn't always greener on the other side. The main character's ups and downs showed that no matter where your life leads you, your exactly where you want to be and taught us not to judge a book by its cover.

I really enjoyed reading this book, it read light, like a beach read, but had a lot of substance.

I LOVED IT! READ IT! Scenesters, Club Kids, Drag Queen Scene, Diva Darlings and FUN! Not exactly what she became known for, but a great book (for grown-ups!) Fantastic First Novel! Written before her Homer Books. She captured a by-gone era beautifully.

When I started this book I was hooked right away and then somewhere around the middle it got boring but then miraculously it picked up again....The thing that really kept me hooked was her relationship with Hood...It was so real that you could actually feel her pain and his....Thought her writing style was great and some very funny lines kept me laughing...Also have to say that the end had me crying when she left Hood at the prison...So with the exception of the middle and maybe too much description it made me both laugh and cry and I guess that is the best a book can do......

I bought this book as I LOVE the author and while its not terrible, its just not my cup of tea.....it was too long for its subject matter and at times just dragged on......Gwen is a great writer and I will hang on to it but her 2 follow up books are the ones to beat :)

I've read a lot, in bits and pieces about South Beach, so I had an idea of what the lifestyle of the inhabitants would be like. After all, I saw "The Birdcage." I agree with a reviewer that the book got boring, but on the other hand, I agreed with another viewer who said it was "Compulsive." I realized I was reading the same thing over and over, but I couldn't put it down. The basic plot is - she goes to a party, describing what she wears, had fun, everyone knows her. She goes to a party, describing what she wears, had fun----- well, you get the idea. But I really couldn't put it down. All the characters are lovable, and even when she goes to a drug den, there is nothing to fear. Everyone is so nice. It's like living in Fantasy Land. But I liked the book. Worth a few hours reading.

After reading Gwen Cooper's "Homer's Odyssey", this book is VERY different. I did love them both though. She pays VERY good attention to detail. I'll continue reading her books! Shipper was speedy and book was as described. Will order again!

There is no plot whatsoever, just a retelling of attending parties every night and what things happened at each party (all of which are basically the same). At the end of the book, there was a line that read something like (I am paraphrasing here, as I can't remember the exact wording) that to the main character, it had begun to seem like the same party, different place every night. That sums up this book perfectly.

It's also obviously more autobiographical than fiction, as the author's life seems parallel to the book's main character's, and also because fiction wouldn't be so boring.
Prepare to lose some sleep, this book is so compulsively readable that I couldn't put it down. Even though it is fiction I kept forgetting that because it read exactly like a juicy memoir. I suspect that this is in fact a memoir hiding in fictional clothing. Either way, this is a fun fabulous look at the SoBe 90's scene. Gwen Cooper does an excellent job of balancing the nighttime fun with the harsh realities of daylight. I am glad I spent time in her capable hands enjoying this delicious treat of a book!
