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.

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.

OK, I didn't like this book, mostly because it felt very repetitious, like a giant rant about what the main character's boss was making her do. But heres the thing: I must be crazy because her job didn't sound that bad to me! All she had to do was run around the city for her boss, she didn't have to do anything that really required a lot of brainpower, she got to meet interesting people and be exposed to the magazine business, and she signed up for it. So.. I felt no sympathy at all and found her whiney and annoying. She only had ONE person who she really had to answer to, and the amount of responsibility in her job was negligible. If this was a book about a really hard job with REAL stress maybe I could buy it. But no. I'm still going to give this author another try, I'm reading "Everyone Worth Knowing" right now, and I like it better.

I agree with the other reviews posted here, I enjoyed the movie far better than the book. It's very rare for that to be the case, but I just like the direction the movie took the characters. I just read Last Night at Chateau Marmont by the same author and it was a far better book than this book was! I give the movie 5 stars, the book 2 stars!

LOVED it! I read this years ago at a time when my life seemed out of control, and it made me feel that it could be SOOOO much worse! LOVE the movie, too. Perfect casting.
