This was an odd read. Harwood seems very self-aware in some ways, and completely oblivious in others, and in ways that do not seem to make much sense. I suppose this is the human condition, but it made the reading feel more like circling the drain endlessly- and it does not help that her affect throughout the book was utterly flat.

Despite this, and the restrictions Harwood acknowledged about a lack of facts- even to what her daily duties were!- it is a scary look inside the enclaves of the ultra-wealthy, and points up how they are utterly disengaged with the likes of normal people. Considering most of our elected officials are in the rich to ultra-rich demographics, it points up how disconnected they are- since THEY get whatever they want when they want it, they cannot imagine another existence- even the existences of the people tasks with providing their effortless lives.

I did find it something of a page-turner; while uninformative and flat in affect, it was still an honest look at some aspects of a particular lifestyle. ( )
