I think I am the only person in the world who thought this book was garbage. I am not a book snob. I love a quick fun read, but this was annoying and the soul-less from beginning to end.

It is very rare when I get to say I actually liked the movie MUCH better than the book. The story while suposed to be inflicting sympathy on the reader for the main charator fails as we find out how shallow and self obsorbed she becomes whith no seeming regaurd for the people around her. I found it stale and at times a bit repetive, I say add this to your NetFlix not your wish list.

GREAT great book!!! It was entertaining, funny (really funny at times), and completely enjoyable. The reader of this story does an excellent job of making distinct voices, adding just the right pauses, inflections, etc. to make it seem so real, not like she is simply reading a script.

I was a little disappointed in the book after having seen the movie. The book was probably more realistic but it was harder to think of the main character as being the heroine of the story, and it wasn't as funny as the movie.

If not for the title that peaks your interest, or for the humor and undeniably great insight on what it would be like to work for a debutante of the fashion world, this book held my interest from beginning to end. If you are looking for a deep literary read, this is definitely not for you. This is a light, funny read that I, quite frankly, could not put down. Having no knowledge of fashion, designers, or New York City for that matter, I felt like I had an education on the fast paced, cut throat and very competitive industry that most girls can only dream about participating in. I thought Weisberger showed immense talent in poking fun at this glamorous way of life and I thouroughly enjoyed it.

I think I would like this book more if I wasn't able to relate.... Funny and a quick read, but not a selection for me.

Oh my God! I read this book while working at the worst job I've had yet. While I found the plot line lacking in a point other than this has got to be the worst boss in history,it unexpectedly gave me the courage to quite my job with out a back up plan. And yes I did find a job I enjoyed much more.

Since I had seen the movie before reading the book, it was interesting to see the changes that occurred. The book is still a good read and the writer is excellent. It is easy to read and I couldn't help but be involved with the characters. If you are looking for a nice summer read, then this is it.
