Book Review: "Thing of Beauty" by Stephen Fried

5 out of 5 stars!
This book brought me to laughter, tears, excitement, then back to tears again. I wasn't expecting to feel such a connection with Gia. Yes some of the errors/typos in there got a little distracting, but overall it was a good book with lots of insight into the modelling industry and the family, romance, and friendships behind this beautiful, heartbreaking enigma that is Gia. At times I couldn't wait until this demanding novel ended, but was sad when I did get to the final page. Ultimately this is a sad story, and an eye-opener about what can happen when you play with fire (read: drugs). But if you are up for a wild, adventurous story, with everything from sex, rock n' roll, to AIDS, fame, and family drama, then this is the book for you.
