Stories from the hotel industry - passes some time reading, but nothing to shout about
the author was repeating himself at some point, but there was quite a lot of interesting parts in this book. The ending part was quite dramatic, made it a good ending. a easy read
Interesting at the beginning but plots are repeated afterwards. Imogen describes the kitchen work, the drunks and celebrities again and again. Characters of most customers are just the same: drunken, weird, prostitutes. There are few pages that make me laugh, but most of them are quite boring.
Topics are poorly-organized. I’d rather Imogen separate them into different categories (e.g. gossip about hotel staff, different kinds of customers, bars & ballrooms, services you just can’t imagine, etc.) than describing anything arbitrarily like brain-storm in one hour per chapter....Continua
Very entertaining ... and actually makes me more understanding and tolerant of the occasional disappointment I personally encounter in those hotels!
This book is better than the TV series! All the incidents happened in 24 hours! It exposed the dark side of hotel business as well as the weird behaviour of the hotel guests (well, may be they think no one will judge and care what they do in the hotel?). Overall, the book is worth reading and some of the gags are fun! I will definately read Air Babylon afterward....Continua
