To be fair, I only listened to one CD from this book. The characters were all stereotypical, not nuanced or believable. There are too many outstanding books to waste your time with this one.
Easy listening is how I’d label this book along with fun, enjoyable and fast paced, but unquestionably a chick-book.
Yes, this is what many of us New Yorkers strive for. Although I have never been anywhere close to page 6, being shallow(and being refused access to Bungalow 8) is sort of a way of life out here. The book is cute, although I think its a New York book for New Yorkers(or maybe New Yorkers at heart). If you want to know how some of us live(or try to live) have a go at the book!
i sent it right back. i couldn't care of the juvenile stuff, or the long talk of itself and other people which i couldn't relate. then to add had cuss words more desirable than i care for instead of using professional word to bring out the same statement.
This book was a mindless and entertaining listen. But the main character compromising her values for 75% of the book was souless.
No, this book won't change your life or change the world. But it sure was fun! If you just want a break from the every-day(or your commute), this is a very enjoyable listen. It was just plain fun - which we could all use sometimes.
Not bad but after a while got tedious listening to the shallow and morally challenged subjects and I found myself waiting for soemthing substantial to happen.
Ugh. Double Ugh. Unfortunately, this form doesn't allow me to assign no stars for a rating. I appreciate light chic-lit as much as the next woman, but this book was awful! The narrator's gravelly, whiny voice made the poor content unbearable.
It was ok. If you have read Devil Wears Prada, then this book will feel similar. Also it was precitable, you can tell what is going to happen next. What fascinated me was the inner world of celebrities studdied parties and tabloid. .
I love these chic novels to make the time pass in the car. I enjoyed Bette's exploits as the innocent in the den of evil PR demons in NYC. You know that she is going to see and do naughty things, but are anxious to live vicariously through her. I will continue to rent this type of books and read the celeb magazines to pass time quickly. This one will be out in movie form soon-I hope.
