Set against the bright lights and live feed of daytime television, Satan’s Sisters by veteran TV insider Star Jones spins an irresistible tale of ruthless ambition, guarded secrets, backstabbing drama, true sisterhood, and an unforgettable tour backstage where the real “talk” takes place. Satan’s Sisters is the story of The Lunch Club, a long-running, popular ladies’ talk Set against the bright lights and live feed of daytime television, Satan’s Sisters by veteran TV insider Star Jones spins an irresistible tale of ruthless ambition, guarded secrets, backstabbing drama, true sisterhood, and an unforgettable tour backstage where the real “talk” takes place. Satan’s Sisters is the story of The Lunch Club, a long-running, popular ladies’ talk show in which alliances are forged, careers are made, and bridges are burned.

The Lunch Club’s beleaguered publicist is assigned to track down the embargoed manuscript and assess the potential damage to everyone’s livelihood...but time is running out and there’s now a new mole spilling details of the show’s private panic moments.

    I started reading Satan’s Sisters on a whim, because I had heard the title tossed around a few places, not because I follow Star Jones’ career or because I watch/watched The View. I’ve read very little “chick lit” in my time, but I still thought I’d enjoy Satan’s Sisters fairly well. Maybe chick lit does just have a lot of sex and drama and clichés in it, and maybe I’m just ignorant, but I was surprised by how bad the writing was.

I’ve read very little “chick lit” in my time, but I still thought I’d enjoy Satan’s Sisters fairly well. Maybe chick lit does just have a lot of sex and drama and clichés in it, and maybe I’m just ignorant, but I was surprised by how bad the writing was. The omniscient narrator quickly became annoying; she was predictable and boring. She repeated many of the same words and phrases, and for a book about intelligent ladies, the narrator was not witty. In fact all the narrator really did was explain what was going on with each of the characters in mind-numbingly straightforward and obvious play-by-plays. And there were way too many characters. There was a lot of back and forth. Too much. All the characters felt the same: all these purportedly smart women felt shallow and unoriginal. For all their fame and repute, these characters all swore too much, used old, trite expressions and stale jokes, and were very narrow-minded. The swearing really bugged me. I have nothing against swearing, I have a sailor’s mouth myself, but the novel was supposed to be about a bunch of smart ladies who have experienced life to the fullest, both in professional and personal capacities. You would think they would have vocabularies that transcended variants of the words “fuck,” “shit,” and “damn.” I didn’t really care about any of these characters by the end of the novel, mostly because each felt flat, even in the intense personal situation each had to face. I’m going to refrain from commenting about the sex. There was just a lot of it, and it was needless. It didn’t add to the plot very much. And it was written in such a way that just made the characters seem even more superficial and shallow. I don’t want to trash completely on the novel. I think I’m just a little over-zealous since this is my first review on goodreads, but this is more or less what I might say to a friend if s/he asked about this novel. For the most part, I did not like Satan’s Sisters. I thought the writing was subpar to say the least, as if the only thing the writer was concerned with was getting the plot on the page and not how the plot would be presented, how it would be written. BUT, and this is a big “but,” there was enough plot (and I should hope so with that many characters) that at least a little bit of me wanted to finish the book and see how it would end. I did finish the novel, when I could’ve just put it down, and that is something.

Much to my surprise and maybe to others disappointment, this is NOT about “The View.” Readers will be sorely mistaken if they attempt to match some of the book’s characters with real-life people. The drama unfolds when it is announced that a former co-host has written a tell-all about the women of “The Lunch Club.” Drama, demons, addictions, and betrayal are all brought to light as each page unfolds. “Satan’s Sisters” is full of substance as each character’s story is told in depth and there are plots on top of other plots. I read this book in one sitting as I could not put it down. Star Jones has a true talent for writing and I hope that she will continue to share her gift with us.

    I will never again be able to look at Star Jones and see a classy southern lady, as she often self describes. I am not a prude, but there was far to much sex in this book, closely bordering on vulgar. Also, waaaaay to many characters are introduced, and so many of them have nothing to do with the plot at all, and yet it goes into great, intricate detail with all of them. Between this and all the sex, it felt like she was going to great pains to streaaaaaaaach the book out. Such a waste of time.

The only reason I gave this book two stars was because I was oddly enough interested in a couple of characters to stick it out and see where their storylines ended up. Please Star, keep your day job.

    I read some reviews where it said this book had a lot of sex. I thought they were exaggerating. They did not. There was a LOT of sex. I don't mind that sort of stuff, but for those that do...beware. For the first several chapters, I had a hard time keeping up with all the characters.

While the characters have some characteristics of the View ladies, I really don't think any of them are prototypes for these characters. Star Jones seems to have used what she knows....the format of a talk show and the behind the scenes gossip as a springboard for this novel. I enjoyed the book. It kept my interest. I think there were a few extraneous characters here and there with a couple of unresolved story lines, but all in all, it was a good read.

However, some characters seem like composites of composites of composites, something which could distract the average low-attention-span reader trying to discern the real people those characters represent. The multiple subplots eventually dovetail and Jones (and/or her ghostwriter) resolves most of them in believable ways. I have to admit that I wouldn't mind reading a sequel to Satan’s Sisters

The book builds the readers up just to let the drama that was suspected fizzle out by everything being told by the narrator at the end. The only Satan Sister was Maxine in my opinion. She used her power to intimidate the ladies of the Lunch Club as well as those around her by reeking havoc however and wherever she could. Everyone walked on pins and needles where she was concerned and this made me wonder if this is how it was for Star working with Barbara Walters. I wanted to see what happened when the book was released how did each woman take it. Did Missy lose any of her public standing. What did Heather Hope really have to gain besides the satisfaction of watching Maxine squirm? The list goes on with me begging for more details. What happened with the child prostitution case? Did the new gay show meant to rival Ellen's make it? I know it hadn't aired, but that would be interesting to know. How did Lindsay overcome her boyfriend's betrayal and what happened between her and the lawyer that got her a copy of the manuscript down the road? Did the comedienne get her act together and become sober or did she stay a fat mess? How did the wife recover from her husband's shameful secret and did she get back with the network president? What happened with the baby situation? I forgot a lot of the character's names as there were many, but the list goes on. As I stated, Satan's Sisters had a lot of potential had the Star let the story just unfold, but then again, maybe it couldn't due to conflicts of interests that mirrored The View. Perhaps a lot was taken out and swapped with a narrative ending to avoid a lawsuit. Hmmm...

    Again, a book that I wanted to like, just as a purely salacious summer read, but even fluff needs a narrative and relatable characters, and the problem is that I really just didn't know who I was supposed to root for here. At first, I thought this was going to be a thinly-veiled account of "The View," but none of the characters really strike me as a caricature of those ladies.

So instead, it's just a novel about the many feuds and affairs of an all-female talk show cast, who find out that a former co-host is soon to publish a tell-all book about her years on the show. I didn't like any of the characters, but I didn't hate them, either. I almost quit reading it a couple of times, but since the book continually implied bombshells dropped and fireworks resulting, I kept waiting for the shoe to drop, and for one of them to do something crazy, or feel someone's wrath, or even just break out into a good old fist fight somewhere along the line. But no one really got their comeuppance because of bad deeds listed in the book, and everyone's life turned out better for the exposure of the secrets. I don't know if the author decided to pull her punches, but the payoff here is really, really non-existent. I feel like I've listened to a stranger at a dinner party, dishing all the details of the lives of people I don't know with no real point at the end of it. Just a waste of a good dinner...

    I read this book to be nosy. Why did Star Jones get kicked off The View? One chapter in I realized that I never watched enough of The View to even know who each character in the book is supposed to represent from the show. So I just tried to enjoy the story. Jones writes a fictional story based on her experiences on the show and it was okay in an PG urban literature kind of way--gossip, sex, lies, and drugs. My favorite character is Maxine who I was hoping at 65 years old would change or show so I read this book to be nosy. Why did Star Jones get kicked off The View?

My favorite character is Maxine who I was hoping at 65 years old would change or show some growth? Honestly, I let myself down because why the hell I would think a 65 year old woman would change her ways after all those years. In addition, people don't change much. Maxine is a woman who is accustomed to getting what she wants. In the end it is this part of her personality that gets her her William Clark (for me the fine Djimon Hounsou is who I was imagining was fulfilling this role but that is neither here nor there). The biggest let down of this book is that we never find out what happens to Whitney's husband, the pedophile. I'm easily satisfied; a blurb or two would do: "He was raped to death in jail". I don't know. Anyhow, for me it was okay. I can say I read it.

    I wish I was able to give this half stars, because I would probably give it more like a 2 1/2. To me, it seems like the book jacket doesn't really give the best picture of the book. I mean, those things do happen, but it wasn't exactly what I thought it would be...I'm not sure how to better explain that. Mainly I just read it out of curiosity anyway.

    I picked this book because I must admit I was intrigued. Star Jones writing a fiction book about daytime talk show hosts? I am dying to know exactly how much is based on truth... This book is about daytime talk show hosts whose worlds are about to be rocked by a book written by a former cohost. Each of the current hosts has a secret that they are harboring and worried that it may be exposed in the book. This was a quick read for me.

Well...I didn't have high hopes and I was disappointed. I thought that there were too many characters! the fact that Star changed up the real people with her fictional characters made it doubly confusing!

The only downside to this fictional novel is that there are far too many characters to keep up with that the reader may be left wondering what the actual story line is. The novel is not gripping at all, due to the juicy antics of each character, the reader is left not even caring about what juicy tell all tales the Character Melissa Adams puts in her book. It is a good first attempt at writing for the author.

    I wanted to read this to see if I could recognize the characters in this fictional book, from "The View". She did have a matriarch that had qualities of Barbara Walters, but she really made her a composite of more than one person, so it really wasn't Ms Walters at all. She gave lots in inside information about working on a Talk Show, without giving away any real people. I couldn't put the book down. It was similar to a Jackie Collins novel, but not quite as good.

    I really loved this book! I could not put it down! It was everything that it promised to be. A backdoor lens into the scandalous business world of TV. The book was well written, the up and downs of the plots were intriguing. Lies, deceit, illicit affairs and family woes dominate the themes. Juicy stuff. It was fun trying to see if Star Jones was talking about her ex-cohosts on the View, but I did not see any familiar characteristics. This was a good fiction book. I am late reading it.

    I tried to read this book but it was poorly written. This book was unable to pull me nor hod my attention. None of the characters were easy to relate to and after about 50 pages I realized that I wasn't vested in any of them nor did I care about the outcome of the fictional tell all novel. I commend those who were able to stick it out and finish this one. I tried to read this book but it was poorly written. This book was unable to pull me nor hod my attention.

    Maybe it was because I listened to the audio-version, which Star read, but I had a hard time following all of the characters' storylines. I'm no prude, but at times it was down-right vulgar. I am a big fan of The View, but could find no correlation and I guess that is why they can't sue her. Interesting that they didn't ask her on the show when she was doing her book tour...

    3.5 stars This book was not as bad as some readers or reviewers said it was. In my opinion, it wasn't bad at all. There was A LOT of sex in this book and at times, it was a bit much for me. Although, I did enjoy the storyline and most of the characters. It was interesting listening to the women characters in the book. The only character that I didn't like was Whitney's husband. 3.5 stars This book was not as bad as some readers or reviewers said it was. In my opinion, it wasn't bad at all. There was A LOT of sex in this book and at times, it was a bit much for me. Although, I did enjoy the storyline and most of the characters.

    i havent really read this. i stopped because it seemed like it was just going to be alot of mudslinging and ugliness. i dont read that brand of pulp. its also the reason i dont read jackie collins books. i'd rather not dedicate large chunks of my life energy and time on reading ugly stories about ugly people doing ugly things. i havent really read this. i stopped because it seemed like it was just going to be alot of mudslinging and ugliness. i dont read that brand of pulp. its also the reason i dont read jackie collins books. i'd rather not dedicate large chunks of my life energy and time on reading ugly stories about ugly people doing ugly things.

    Crude book. I'm not prudish, and I can read just about anything with interest, if it's not gibberish or crude for the sale of sales, but this book is not only crude, it's boring, and confusing. I just didn't get it, could barely keep myself interested in it. It was a waste of money. Star Jones should be able to do better, I would think. Crude book.

    A slow read in the beginning. The book gets better about one-third is to the book. In the beginning, it was hard to sort out the characters. Would I recommend that my BookClub read this book. Probably. My first thought was that this book was about Star Jones time on the View. Many of the characters in this book makes the reader go hmmmmmmm...... LOL.

    I thought it would be amusing so I gave it a try. Blah. Trashy chick lit, and that's being kind. I listened for about an hour and returned the book to electronic no man's land. Now, I'll say Star Jones seems to have a knack for story telling, but I'm thinking she can do better--maybe clean up the language a little and forget the gratuitous sex.

    I decided to read this book because I heard that a tv series was in the works. I also needed a lighter read after reading A Thousand Splendid Suns which was mentally and emotionally heavy. I honestly didn't expect much from this book so I guess it "served its purpose" but the end was wrapped too nicely in a bow and would have been better if everything didn't end so perfectly. 1 1/2 stars.

    I had to dismiss that Star Jones was the author to get into this book. I kept trying to relate the characters to those on the View, which was distracting. Once that was finally achieved, the book had this wonderful flow.

    Well I got this book looking for some juicy details and much controversy, being that Star Jones was no longer on the view. I was disappointed and bored. I had to force myself to finish this book. It had the potential to be so much more.....I was let down.
