DOC [Imposter Antony John] psychiatry
The thing I liked about this book was the relationship between Seth and his brother and father My dad had a stroke when he was young and it was truly sad to see how much a man loses when he can no longer work and support his family I wasn t half as understanding as Seth is I think Anthony John s portrayal of that relationship sets a good xample for teens who may have stroke victims in their families Compassion is something you have to learn I didn t really like something you have to learn I didn t really like nding of this book but I have to say the twists and turns through out the story kept me guessing What is real and what is pretend in the movie world This book xplores that It also deals with some issues surrounding drug addiction There is some teen sex but it is handled fairly well Not a great book for a tween The fact that Seth seems fairly genuine makes we wonder how he could actually be a good actor But he is likable Scala for Java Developers enough I was luckynough to read a couple The Qur'an, Morality and Critical Reason: The Essential Muhammad Shahrur early versions of this story and I reallynjoyed it Imposter isn t a huge flashy murder mystery with a trail of mutilated corpses but instead of a cerebral mystery where nothing Vermeer to Eternity ever seems to add up and as a reader you have to struggle to put the pieces togetherI like that the main character is a believable guy who has a good heart but sometimes lets hismotions dictate his actions We all make bad choices and Seth is far from perfect but I found myself rooting for him throughout the story because he learned from his mistakes Considering that he s just a regular guy caught up in a Hollywood conspiracy he does pretty good with what he s gotI also really liked the family dynamics in play here There are great scenes between Seth and his dad and Seth and his brother and you can tell what really matters to these characters My favorite thing about this book is the prose It s been polished to perfection and there are lots of clever metaphors and uotable lines without Heaven to Betsy ever feeling over the top Seth was once just an actor performing in local plays in his town but his whole world is flipped on it s side when Seth acuires the lead role of an upcoming Hollywood movie The movie in uestion is no normal film as Seth finds out as it involves actual interaction utilizing head cams with other cast members which translates to little to no script The whole focus on the novel focuses on these interactions with these cas Nice lil story Will be good for a TV series and not a movieFinely woven adventure of a naive young man into untested waters of lies hypocrisy cover ups money treachery and land mines The publisher promotes this book as The Firm meets The Truman Show I wish it were asxciting as So B. It either of those The book was a real slow starter for me and I almost put it aside when it took me over a week to get through the first 50 pages Thankfully my life slowed down the book picked up and I read the second half of the book in a day I can see why many high school teens wo Imposter was a decent book for me It started off alright but once the plot twists and revelations started coming in things went a little absurd There were some redeeming points in terms of some of the character development in this book but overall it was just a bit too muchImposter is a story about Seth an 18 year old community theater actor who gets scouted after his performance as Romeo in Romeo and Juliet for a huge film named Whirlwind Originally a celebrity couple Sabrina Layton and Kris Ellis were attached to the film but due to their recent break up Seth and another novice actress Annaleigh take up the lead roles of the star crossed couple instead Whirlwind is a uniue film in the way that the actors and actresses are given cameras to film and record their actions on the go making the film a sort of scripted reality where they are given a basic plot and script to follow but ultimately much of the creative input is up to them As the story progresses Seth starts toxperience the trials of being in Hollywood and realises that there are dark secrets he does not know about the film and its crewFirst I ll talk about what I liked about this book There are some interesting characters in this book Sabrina for instance Initially I figured Sabrina was the usual cut throat bitchy star actress who talks shit about others behind their backs continually wears a mask to fool others into a sense of trust Cabaret etctc Her repeated flip flopping of joining and leaving the cast of the film along with her rratic and destructive behavio.

The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, early on in the book so it was refreshing to see these characters become developed and complicated than simple caricatures of Hollywood The pace of the book was good too I was committed to discovering how the story wouldnd and how verything would be resolved when I started on the second half of the book and it kept me interested all the way till the nd The main problem I had with this book was its plot The premise of having an ntire movie filmed via headcams of the main actors and actresses was believable It was billed as an adventurous xperiment and it was an indie film after all What was difficult to believe was the actual plot of the movie that the director and producers had in mind which was to use the real lives of all the actors and actresses as content for the film Basically the whole plot of the movie was revealed to the paparazzi stage by stage including intimate photographs and whatever content that was taken in private so how did the crew intend to make money on releasing such a film when most of its content is already out there At various points of the book various characters mention that celebrity gossip and news will always blow over as the media The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl enter another news cycle and move on to the next story so it doesn t make much sense that a film based on yesterday s gossip news would do well in the box officespecially when all the paparazzi seem to have lost interest in Seth towards the Exile and Pilgrim end of the book To film the cast members in secret and to record all of their actions wasntering We Live in Public territory Seth Sabrina and Annaleigh signed their contracts agreeing to such recordings but I found it hard to believe that Seth after reading very page of the contract did not pick up anything about non consensual filming or the like and just signed away his right to privacy in that agreement Also the content that was being recorded was crazy It included Annaleigh and Seth having sex in Annaleigh s hotel room and since Annaleigh is only 17 this is pretty much pornography involving a minor that the production crew have on their hands and yet Annaleigh and her parents were totally fine with that and the film crew threatened Seth with PUBLISHING it as well That is just insane Wire tapping the private phones given to the actors was believable though I am not sure how legal that was Wire tapping Annaleigh s personal handphone was a little too convenient to me for the production crew to discover Seth s actions towards the nd of the bookI had a problem with Annaleigh s character as well One minute she was shy and struggling in the spotlight to hold her own against Sabrina in a press conference the next she s angry at Seth for knowing about the level of voyeurism the production was operating at while she had known from the very beginning about it She Hannah Montana: The Movie exploited her father s criminal situation for the media but still played the victim in the whole fiasco I liked Annaleigh in the beginning thinking she was a good person struggling in thevil and hypocrisy of Hollywood but in the nd it turns out she fits right in This book was intriguing at first and got frustrating towards the nd This book could have taken a couple steps towards having a realistic plot The ambiguous nding might be something some appreciate but I felt that readers deserved to know about how it all nded in Seth s fight against Whirlwind and not be left hanging at the nd 35 Seth Crane is an LA boy a prominent actor in.
