Down the Rabbit Hole by Holly Madison | Summary & Analysis

Down the Rabbit Hole is the memoir of former Hugh Hefner girlfriend and former star of The Girls Next Door, Holly Madison.

Growing up in Alaska and Oregon, she never fit in with the other small-town kids, who were obsessed with sports and videogames. Instead, Holly watched Marilyn’s movies and fantasized about Hollywood…

    Great read and take on "Holly Madison's" life as one of "Hugh Hefner’s" girlfriends. As she started out young and then soon got into hollywood and the like. All the way to how she got into the lifestyle and what it felt like to be expected of. Then to see how she finally managed to get away from it all and stay away from it was an amazing feat for her in itself.
