I found this book to be a really fun read. There is not much of a plot - and the one it struggles with is very predictable. But Ms Sykes does a great job with satire and the book is extremely amusing. Her descriptions of the lives of NY socialites kept a constant smile on my face.

This novel has the same feel as the Shopaholic series - rich girls who have too much time and money on their hands. The adventures are fun, but after a while, you could almost write the next chapter. This is a great book to read at the beach or when you don't want think too much.

In the recent tradition of Sex and the City-style fiction this looks at the lives of two well-to-do girls trying to figure out their lives. It is a fun, quick read!

A fun, light read. Definitely not serious literature but sometimes it's definitely good to enjoy the fluffier side of fiction. Pure fun.

Not bad chick lit. A very quick read with a predictable ending, but very fun a la sex in the city, replete with Manolos and Michael Kors

A frothy and delicious read. It isn't difficult or very intellectually tough, but it satisfies like a macaroon. A very quick read.

This was a fast and fun read. I liked the characters. This is about how the VERY rich handle life and love. The "narrator" of the story is a Bergdorf Brunette, best friend of Julie Bergdorf, who "keeps $100 million in the bank and not a dime more".

I am sorry it took me so many years after publication for me to find this book. The Bergdorf Blondes is a really wonderful romp through socialite New York. The book follows the point of view of Moi, with her friends Julie Bergdorf (the queen bee of society), Lara and Jolene and may others. At some parts you want to laugh and ask yourself can anyone really be this shallow. They abbreviate everything including the word PH for potential husband. But, at the end of the day you really just do have to laugh about it.

Moi takes us not only into the world of the fashion obsessed Princesses of Park Avenue but through a series of her own very poor relationship mistakes. There is Zach, the moody depressing photographer who treats her like crap, who she almost marries. Eduardo the married, with children prince from some where or another, Patrick the married man with the psycho wife. And of course the very regrettable Charlie Dulain, who is Julies boy friend, or so she thought. You will get a few curve balls you didnt see coming in this fun little run around the world, from New York to Rio and back again. I recommend reading this one if you want something easy, and something to lighten your mood.

I was very excited to read this book, as I heard it to be a new and edgy addition to the chick lit genre. The story was cute, the girls were lovable (and attrocious and caddy at times- loves it!), and the men were not nearly as described or defined enough to truly get a sense of their characters. I was a little disppointed that the story didn't have a more finite kicker or a stonger punch. But, I would still pass along to a friend.

Pure fluff. Completely designer name dropping. You need a chart to keep up! It is a crack up, though. I laughed out loud in some spots. Thought it was pretty unbelievable that someone could actually live like this and think like this until I saw Larry King interview Paris Hilton. Funny book.

I read this book when I was sick and it was perfect!! It's definitely "brain candy." There are no deep meaningful symbols. It's just a really fun, quick read.

Oh and I will NEVER be able to think of South America in the same way, ever again! ;)

I didn't hate this book, but did get tired of hearing about privileged girls acting stupid in spite of having all of life's advantages.

It was a great detox book between serious literature. I wouldn't recommend it as a book to expand your horizons with.. just something to use to clean your palette.

I absolutly loved this book 100% rich girl living in NYC chick lit.... Full of designer labels, fun gay BFF's, millionaire/billionare boytoys and just rich flakey single BFF's (and even flakier married BFF's!!) with a typical herione of the book being a woman who's a little more down to earth and less flakey then her friends... I loved it purely a fun quick light read.. i love plum sykes...unfortunatly the bulk of this authors writing is for VOGUE since she only has written 2 novels (this one and the debutante divorcee...which i also loved by the way ) the characters in both these books remind me of each other.....

A great quick beach read. The thing that sets this apart from other books in the genre is that Plum Sykes worked at Vogue magazine for a number of years, which gives her great insight when it comes to the fashion world in NYC. Very funny.

You really have to be in exactly the right mood for this über-silly chicklit about a bunch of self-absorbed Manhattan twenty-somethings whose entire purpose in life is to be seen at the right parties, wearing the right designer and the right jewels, in the company of the right man. Sykes telegraphs her "big surprise" so early in the novel that if her next book doesn't get published, she'll be a shoo-in for a job with Western Union. But if you're down with the creeping crud and want something even more mindless than daytime TV, this is the book for you.

This book is about a group of women who are Bergdorf Blondes. The descriptions of some of their lives is almost unbelieveable but I guess there are some people in this World that act like this. Some parts of the book are really funny, but after awhile I got bored with it.

I guess there is a market for these books, do these girls depicted in them read them? I dont know, but the whole fashion detail and shallowness is not to my taste. Perhaps it is so satirical that I am missing something, but I think not..

Meet Moi. With invitations to high-profile parties, more designer clothes than is decent, and a department store heiress for a best friend, Moi is living at the peak of New York society as a Park Avenue Princess. But what is she to do when her engagement falls apart? Can Moi ever find love in a town where her friends think the secret to happiness is an invitation to an exclusive sample sale? With enormous wit and an insider's eye, Plum Skykes' glittering debut captures the nuances of the rich and spoiled in a heartwarming social satire.
