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.

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.

Great chick-lit book for a fun read!

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!

VERY enjoyable book and sooooo much better than the movie! Totally proves the expression "Never judge a book by its movie!"
