Skipped through the scandals, divorces, murders and intrigues like an old hand - opened up Palm Beach like a beautiful fruit - rotten to the core. Written to be easily read - not being American I am not sure of the facts - I can only hope that it is all true.
Now I want to read more about the decadent rich, the poor darlings who have everything they could want materially, but live tortured lives - unloved, untrusting, bereft and alone. Makes us all feel soooo much better driving a 10 yr old honda to the grocery store. They won't let him sub divide? Thank goodness I'm me! One person found this helpful. Not a great book in my opinion. Just a book of name dropping of people I never heard of or cared to hear.. Glad I got this as an unlimited book. I flipped pages way too often. A great book to read before going to bed as it will put you to sleep.
Gave it one extra star because it help me go to sleep. The author gave us exactly what he promised he would do I knew a few, but not all of them from history. A real 5-star eye opener! A fascinating tell all about some of Palm Beach, Florida's most interesting characters. I found the collection to be informative, well written and enjoyable. This book seems like just a cheap knockoff of Palm Beach Babylon. It was okay but not all that good.

Maybe this is a collection of other research in some ways but it is wonderfully detailed and if you were not familiar with a lot of the goings on of the families here it is a brilliant gossip session. A lot of research has gone into it and it is a racy, largely truthful reminder that rich people were the same in older times as today.
There seems a little too much of the Kennedy family perhaps to pad out the book but this is a top rated light read well written , racey and pacey. Palm Beach Babylon is about the island in Florida where the rich and famous live and vacation. There is history behind the stories. One person found this helpful. I bought as I live in one of the 10 Palm Beaches around the world and thought it would be fun to read on a week away.
It is easy to read.
Palm Beach, Florida
Made me chuckle out loud in a few places. It taught me nothing, well the history of the place was interesting the chapter at the start. It reaffirmed that money does not buy: I hope the book makes the writers a few dollars - because there was the tiniest twinge of envy every now and then throughout the book. It needed to be written, a more history based one would have been nice but not as juicy!
Also, the bane of my life, there were a few editing problems - which always irks me. I pay money to read a book, make sure it is at least spell checked and edited Read it on the beach, preferably a Palm Beach, the Palm Beach if you can - and the ultimate? Add a new chapter. I'm a little embarrassed by how much I enjoyed this book. It's one gossipy tidbit after another that kept me reading many nights well beyond my bedtime. The narrative is engaging and well-done. The cast of characters stretches from the very beginning of Palm Beach to an afterword that updates some of the information with newer developments those updates take the reader to , if I recall the year correctly.
You will not be intellectually enriched by this book, but you will be entertained. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. If you're familiar with Palm Beach then you know that some of these stories were "just the beginning" - a LOT has transpired since this book was written -be sure to read the afterward.
