Title: Waste of Space
Author: Gina Damico
ARC received through NetGalley.
Waste of Space was a likeable enough novel. I think everyone who reads this can appreciated the author’s attempt to ridicule the entertainment/reality TV industry. The story is quite far-fetched and ridiculous, but it’s supposed to be satirical so you can’t take it too seriously for the most part. However, there were some parts that were a bit too cheesy/silly for my liking, which did affect my enjoyment of the book. It was also told in epistolary format (transcripts, interviews, etc.) which is not a style I enjoy reading. I have read a few other reviews saying that it would have been better as a comedy movie rather than a book, and I agree. Waste of Space was a quick, light, easy read that makes fun of the reality TV, and while I didn’t hate it, I didn’t completely enjoy it either.
