Summary

Includes an exclusive interview with India Thain, Jackie Collins's granddaughter and narrator of this audiobook.

Featuring a new, intimate introduction from the wonderful Jessie Burton talking about what Jackie and her books mean to her! Discover the empowerment, sex, scandal and glamour of Lucky, a book ‘so hot it will have to be printed on asbestos’, from the insatiable number one best seller Jackie Collins.

In the world of the rich, love and power are just games to play – and Lucky Santangelo is determined to win....

Lucky is a woman with the strength and determination to accomplish anything. A shrewd businesswoman in a world of demanding old men and petty women, Lucky rules with an iron grip - when she wants something, she gets it, no matter who she is up against. But she's not the only player and this game certainly isn't fair....

There's Lennie Golden, a comic struggling to make it, who has been spurned by love before, Olympia Stanislopoulos, an oft-married heiress with a penchant for cocaine, Dmitri Stanislopoulos, a rich man used to getting his way, and Santino Bonatti, a man determined to get revenge on the Santangelos no matter the cost.

As their lives become entwined and the stakes grow higher and higher, the thirst for revenge is never far away. It will take all the backbone Lucky possesses to reach the climax that she deserves - and come out on top....

Great book brought to life.

I remember reading this book on a holiday in Greece and loving it. Thirty years later it’s still enjoyable. The narrator, the author’s granddaughter, brings it alive. I hope she narrates more of her grandmother’s book.

A thundering ride through a fantasy world

Although Jackie Collins could never claim any literary awards, she writes well enough for this not to matter a jot. This is a very entertaining romp through the world of the super-rich, and serves as a good time capsule of the 1970s - along with the language and attitudes of the age. Jackie’s granddaughter India provides the narration and brings the world of her grandmother to vivid life.

Glorious book

This is usually not my thing, I go for way more smut then this. But the characters are fantastically described and the situations and it just pulls you in. I first listened to the abridged version (didn't know what abridged meant before) on another app, and in my meaning, DON'T GO FOR IT, so much is lost, a 20h book is shortened to something like 2.5h and almost all actual story is lost.

As a sidenote, I saw someone had labeled this rape glorification a moment ago. It is no such thing. There is rape in the book, but there is no glorification about it, it's dirty, disgusting and wrong and all the victims think so and even some assailant.
