Okay, the writing was not superb and, as other reviewers have mentioned, the sub-plot of "Bill's" personal life was pretty lame. I quite enjoyed the main plot, however. The 'inside scoop' on American Idol was interesting and just plain fun. I sandwiched this book in between two Historical Fiction selections and it was a nice break.
It also took me less than 24 hours to finish, w Three and a half stars.

It also took me less than 24 hours to finish, which is pretty good considering a have an adult son with special needs to care for and my husband is away this weekend :. So, in other words, a very quick and entertaining read, not requiring a great deal of concentration.
If you watch any of the reality singing competitions out there, you should enjoy this one. Feb 12, Delia Gleason rated it really liked it. Aspiring writer everygirl that's supposed to be us goes to work on American Idol with the names changed for practically nothing. In addition, I really like how the author goes out of their way to avoid using actual product names aside from Apple, strangely --e.
All in all, it's Aspiring writer everygirl that's supposed to be us goes to work on American Idol with the names changed for practically nothing. All in all, it's not great literature by any stretch of the imagination, but definitely a fun and worthwhile read.
Feb 25, Liana rated it really liked it. This is either a thinly-veiled, shocking behind-the-scenes expose of the show American Idol, or a funny satire of that show. I can't decide which - it works either way! A fun read, especially if you watched Jennifer Lopez' and Steven Tyler's first season on the show. I don't think I'll ever be able to get what the book says about the Ryan Seacrest doppleganger out of my head Perhaps shocking!
May 04, Day's rated it really liked it. The book was as entertaining as I hoped it would be. Yes, the characters are thinly disguised, but the facts about how shows like "American Idol" are produced are fascinating. I'll watch Idol with a fresh eye the next time I tune in. Definitely a summer read. Mar 15, Jerry rated it it was ok. A decent story marred by horribly excessive profanity and crudity. I wasn't expecting a Disney Channel Original Movie, but, would it have killed the anonymous writer to eliminate at least some of the language?
Even only somewhat discerning American Idol fans will not enjoy this. Feb 13, Kyrie rated it did not like it Shelves: music. It was supposed to be an expose of sorts of "American Idol", as nearly as I could tell.

I was never sure who they were supposed to be portraying, or why I should care. Jan 13, Heather McC rated it liked it Shelves: fiction. Regardless of how accurate the book is or isn't , it's a funny read to pass the time. Not overly memorable or forgettable, just something in the middle. Jan 17, Pam rated it did not like it Shelves: couldn-t-finish. It wasn't written well and I found it boring. Never watched the show, liked the book I enjoyed the wacky characters and interesting circumstances they got themselves into. The behind the scenes going ons seem about right, too.
Fun read. Dec 28, Dachokie rated it liked it Shelves: music-entertainment. Mild Mockery of Reality … This book was reviewed as part of Amazon's Vine program which included a free advance copy of the book. Sure, it's a work of fiction, but sometimes reality-based fiction can be just as tantalizing. The anonymous auth Mild Mockery of Reality … This book was reviewed as part of Amazon's Vine program which included a free advance copy of the book.
The anonymous author even added a degree of authenticity and alludes to the fear of the author being fired or sued if discovered. But, other than a few obvious embellishments, the book really didn't "reveal" anything most Idol-watchers didn't know or assume to know already. The book is readable, but I found it a little disappointing. If anyone has a casual watching interest in Idol, they are probably primed on the basic understanding that the show tends to focus on its staff just as much as the annual contestants In fact, one of the biggest challenges I had reading the book was getting the images of real American Idol personalities out of my mind The storylines of the main characters play out quite similar to American Idol's season 10 with the book's main character, Sasha, an assistant producer of "Project Icon", giving readers a fly-on-the-wall perspective of the show's ridiculous behind-the-scenes shenanigans.
Elimination: Night 1
This allows us to see the fragile, piece-meal framework that hides behind the pageantry and polish of the final show; similar to how "The Larry Sanders Show" provided insight to the workings of late-night talk shows. On one hand, the storyline is relatively fun and is full of "did this really happen? Questioning what is real and what isn't makes the book worth reading in the first place.
Readers may even find themselves searching the internet to see if some of the stories are, in fact, true thankfully, there is no evidence that Joey Lovecraft's alter-ego actually defecated on stage to spite his band-mate. On the other hand, the book lacks an immersive quality that really never had me wanting "more" or being particularly drawn to Sasha, the book's main character. While one does not need to be an Idol fan to enjoy the book, it certainly helps to at least be familiar with the show The allusion of providing an insider's perspective of American Idol is what personally drew me a casual Idol viewer to read it.
Jan 09, Leah rated it it was amazing Shelves: ebooks , favorites , books-read The novel is very much fact described as fiction and that only makes it all the better as you try and figure out who all the characters really are. Fans of X Factor and American Idol will immediately see that Elimination Night is basically a fiction version of both shows. Whoever wrote the novel has clearly worked in reality tv and knows their stuff.
It is the best kind of book because it had me totally hooked from page one. I thought Sasha — or Bill as she spends most of the novel being called — was an excellent narrator. I thought she was the perfect kind of character to narrate the novel and her insights were second to none.
Plus, at the heart of her, Sasha was a really lovely person, unlike the rest of the characters in the novel who were just in it for themselves. I absolutely adored Elimination Night. I loved the characters, the plot, the fact that shows like X factor really are like that, I loved Sasha most of all.

A novel like this needs a heroine to root for because of all the other, unpleasant folk and Sasha was that breath of fresh air. The writing was excellent, honestly it was second to none. The kind of author that I harangue until I know when their next book is out, it was that well written and that good. You will, too.
