Hello Hollywood! by Janice Thompson - a revie

What happens when a head writer of a popular TV sitcom has to share her writer's couch with a famous
comedian?  The answer to that question is the story of Hello Hollywood!

Athena Pappas is the senior writer for Stars Collide, a TV sitcom.  With the show losing some numbers in their ratings, it's producer, Rex Henderson, hires comedian Stephen Cosse to join the writing team to instill some fresh ideas into their scripts.  Athena fears her job is on the line and Stephen fears he won't be good enough since he's never written for a sitcom before.  The competition and humor that ensue between Athena and Stephen is priceless.  Add Stephen's 11 year old daughter Brooke, a Greek Domestic Dog named Zeus and Athena's large Greek family and you have the makings of a delectable story that will keep you well entertained and laughing long after you turn the last page.

Hello Hollywood! is written in first person point of view.  If there is anything negative to say about this book is that I really wish it had been written with a shared point of view.  I would have loved to have gotten into Stephen's mind a little.  But it really doesn't matter in the end as the story was told and it was told very, very well.  Ms. Thompson has another hit on her hands!

I would highly recommend Hello, Hollywood! to anyone who loves a good wholesome hilarious book to read.

On a 5 star rating - 4 1/2 stars
