  • This book was enough to give me ideas about locking Eric Garcia in my basement and chaining him to a word processor so he'll write more books. A writer with his immense talent should surely have written more than five by now. I'm a huge fan of his Rex series, and I absolutely loved this book. Not too many men can write a female character this well, that alone earning him some respect. And the story was great, too.

    Cassandra French is a lawyer in business affairs at a studio. Her best friend Claire is an executive at Fox, and their trio is completed by Lexi, a thin, sexy yoga instructor. Cassie's life seems fairly normal, except for her housecoat-wearing mother who accosts strangers on the street and asks them to call Cassie on her behalf, since she has been banned from using telephones as part of her sentence for telemarketing fraud. Cassie's one other little quirk is the three men she keeps chained in her basement. Owen, Alan, and Daniel are all promising young men she met who all had small, fixable flaws that Cassie convinced herself she could correct through a program of positive reinforcement. One by one she added them to her Finishing School, and things were going just swell until she impulsively adds a fourth student, a famous Hollywood star. Things start spiraling out of control, leaving Cassie no choice but to call on Claire and Lexi to help, but things get even worse when her friends take so quickly to the idea of Cassie's Finishing School. I had no idea where any of this was going or how it was going to end, so I kept eagerly plowing through to the exceptional conclusion.

    This book is a fun, lighthearted romp through the twistedly sane mind of Cassandra French. I found myself laughing out loud throughout. Eric Garcia writes great books, and I wish he'd get busy and write more.

  • Cassandra French - Cassie Bear to her mother - works as a counsel in business affairs in a movie studio in LA. Her best friends - Claire and Lexi - often go with her out on the town where they try to find the perfect boy for the evening. Oh, and by the way, Cassie has three young men chained up in her basement while she puts them through her Finishing School to be the perfect men.

    Written in the form of a journal, Cassie comes across as delightfully amoral and at the same time self-deprecating. She does not at all feel that what she is doing is wrong and, in fact, feels that she is doing the men and the world a huge favor. Of course, when she takes an opportunity and adds a movie star - Jason Kelly - to the School, things become decidedly more complicated.

    I loved Garcia's Dinosaur Mafia books, and this book is again a great bit of fiction - romantic comedy, maybe? It is hard to decide exactly what genre it fits into. At any rate, I strongly recommend it for anyone who likes a good laugh - it's a riot.

  • I definitely understand the disappointment many of these reviewers felt. My thoughts? Lighten up!!! I found Garcia's book absolutely hilarious. Not at all like his Rex series (which I also loved), Finishing School is unlike most other novels.

    I think the title and cover may have surprised the disappointed readers here. Finishing School is marketed with the Chick-Lit-type cover, yet it's nothing like Sophie Kinsella (who I adore). This is dark, but not American Psycho-dark (well, I shamefully appreciated that, too, for what it was at the time). Finishing School is black humor--but it's black humor laced with light humor.

    The heroine of this book is missing her moral compass. Still, she's interesting, funny, and strange. She IS offensive, but the book is not. The book doesn't advocate doing the things Cassandra French does. It tells the story of someone who does do these things. In that sense, it's funny.

  • I love the ending of this book: An insinuation that insanity like that can roam freely, without detection. We all fear there's a Cassie French out there waiting for us--someone who's pure evil yet devoid of any real malice. The absurdity it the only thing that keeps this from being the scariest novel on my shelf.

  • If you likes Fifty Shades of Grey but wanted more humor this might be for you if you can find it. Think it's out of print.

  • I picked this book up out of a bargain bin and was more than pleasantly surprised. I thought it would be standard thoughtless chick lit, a nice beach read but it's anything but. Cassandra is tired of being treated poorly by men so instead of eating a metric ton of ice cream and commiserating with her friends, she decides to train boys to be decent men. In the most deranged manner possible. She disturbingly reminds me of my best friend who has a heart of gold but a whole lot of supreme overlord in her soul. This novel is delightful and the way it's written is very reminiscent of Christopher Moore and at the center is a feisty disturbed woman who does all the things women would never admit to daydreaming about.
    Honestly, the most refreshing part of this book (if not the most terrifying) is how it flips the male/female double standard on it's axis. In a world where a women is labeled a 'slut' for being sexually active and a man "a ladies man" for the same actions, this book does the reverse. If the leading role were taken by a man this book would feel creepy and decidedly uncomfortable (a man keeping women in his basement and teaching them to be Stepford Wives? Ew) but instead it's entertaining. It's an absolute must-read for anybody with a wicked sense of humor who is tired of Bridget Jones' and her ilk.
