Who hasn't heard of iconic fashion designer Coco Chanel? C.W. Gortner traces her entire life, from her childhood poverty to her rise in the fashion world, in this riveting piece of biographical fiction. A full portrait of Chanel emerges in this novel, both the good and the bad. She was ambitious, business-savvy, and forward-thinking, but she was also very human and made some highly regrettable mistakes, especially during WWII. Highly recommended for historical fiction fans!

An interesting story, though the writing is a little simplistic. The section on Coco's possible involvement in a Nazi spy episode is very confusingly written.

A quick and easy book to read. It's a pretty interesting story, especially if you have any interest in fashion.
