If you've seen the movie---the book is so much better. It gives a much rounder version of the main character (Andie) and of her boss. AND the ending is VERY different. If you have ever had an unreasonable boss, you should read this book.

I've read this book a couple of times now and it is SO much better than the bubble-gum tween movie version of the story. The film just made the story too cotton-candy cute, not to mention the awful job of casting that was done or the crap job they did in the re-write for the script.

I find the book well-written and not the typical bit of chick-lit fluff where adult characters are lacking serious problems like alcohol-dependency, work stress and/or a potty mouth. The characters in this book may have jobs we can't relate to, but they have problems in their lives that we can be empathetic towards. The author does a great job of making them believable by using real-life language instead of toning it down just so she can sell to a younger genre that the sugary-sweet substitute of a movie pandered to.

Every bit as good as the movie.

Not really what I like. Probably why I didn't go see the movie.

I didn't enjoy it as much as the movie, but it was wonderful, nevertheless. Miranda is even crueler (hard to believe, I know!) and Andrea's friends are not such jerks as I found them to be in the movie. Many differences, but I still enjoyed them both! It is light reading, definitely for girls, but I loved every minute of it!
