Izzy’s Popstar Plan By Alex Marestaing

Posted on: January 7, 2011

I chose this book mainly for its creative idea and amazingly cool layout (you should see it to believe it!). This reads like archives of a blog (so you don’t have that guilty feeling of reading someone’s diary :)), it even has user comments sprinkled here and there. But when you complete this book, it gives a sort of biography feel, including a daily prayer element.

Izzy is the main character in this book and she writes 90 blog posts, about participation in a major talent event. She learns many things, expresses lot of emotions thro her blog entries and sometimes readers help her, sometimes they don’t (or worst, they try to confuse her and she has to make some really hard choices!)

As the book has all short chapters, it is ideal for those who want a quick read. But beware, it embeds lot of useful thoughts (or at least thought provoking insights) in between those tidbits of information, in such a way that you are not bored. In fact this book can be completed in a single reading. But you need to think a lot about the ideas / choices discussed in the book.

Very interesting idea. Hopefully, we will get more blog-books in future, following in Izzy’s footsteps!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
