I enjoyed this book - it is a quick and easy read. I found it quite humorous as a blonde. In this book you follow the adventures of an attractive blonde attorney who hasn't had a date in several years and is coaxed into an experiment by her friends for 30 days ... to become a ditsy blonde :)
Being blonde (nurture not nature) it bothered me that blonde = dumb in this book. More so because the author is blonde!
Cute. The dates seemed a little far-fetched and the plot predictable at times, but entertaining. Can see this becoming a chick-flick.
This was and ejoyable read. I probably would have rated it higher, if I didn't find the main character so frusterating! For a smart lawyer, she comes off pretty dense, at times, and I just want to shake her! I was also hoping that the "blonde theory" part would explore the fun of being blonde, but it came off as more of "ditzy slut theory".
A day's read.
The blonde isn't dumb, she's a partner in a NYC law firm where she combines her love of chemistry and law as a patent attorney. She's not recovering well from a break up and takes on the girlfriends' challenge to try life in the evenings as a dumb blond. It gets interesting.....and has some laugh out loud parts.
Here's the chapter 14 opening graph:
"That night I met Jack Majors for an early dinner at Bistro 49, thoroughly distracted both by thoughts of Jill's husband Alec; and by embarrassment over my encounter with Matt that day. Emmie was, as promised, hunkered over a double latte at the twnety-four-hour coffee shop across from Jill's apartment, and she had promised to text me if and when she saw Alec leave. Until then, I was to go ahead with my date. I tried unsuccessfully to push Matt's infuriating words from my mind."
This book is a fun read, even if you are not blonde. Kristin Harmel write tightly and with a fast pace. While it would be a perfect summer-by-the-pool choice, I enjoyed it even in the dead of winter!!
I enjoyed this book alot. It was a quick, cute read that was relaxing and fun. Chit lit that i wasn't sorry i read like some i felt was a waste of time. This actually had a cute story line.
I enjoyed this book enough to read it twice :)
The plot is a little predictible, and it rambles in a few places, but overall is a good read. The characters are realistic & develop well, and it is easy to follow their thoughts & feelings.
I would definately reccommend this to anyone who likes chick lit.
Lots of laughs with a message. Good book!
