This book started out in the middle of a scene. So it instantly grabbed your attention and the funny scenes and creative writing and the drama that followed held my attention althroughout almost the whole book. The last 10 maybe 15 pages went all down hill. It seemed that Weisberger wasn't sure how to end it and therefore gave it the cliche, everything is how it should be ending. I was really disappointed that so much went into the book and then it all copped out in the last few pages!

I laughed so hard when I read this book. The things this girl goes thru to land her dream job are incrediable. I found myself cheering at the end. It is a good beach book.

Much more entertaining than the movie, laugh out loud funny in parts.

I agree with a lot of the reviewers in that the book is much better than the movie, and makes more sense than some of the nonsense in the movie. I also agree with some who say the ending was forgettable, but the body of the book makes that worth the unsatisfying ending. The story was hilarious, light hearted, weird, and totally different than life as most of us know it, although many of us can relate to the stress of having a seemingly psychotic and irrational boss. You will find yourself imagining snappy comebacks to things people say to the poor girl trying to hold onto her job so she can score her dream job, you'll daydream about the glamour of the fashion world, you'll also wish you were 5'10" and 120 lbs. like the main character. It's a really funny and fun to read book. I live in the rural South, about as far as you can get from downtown Manhattan, so many of the things she describes are really interesting to hear about because they are so different than the regular life here. I also enjoy books that don't require too much thinking on my part (I do enough of that at work!) so it's not really the most intellectual of pursuits, but perfect for an unwinder. Definitely recommended!

Remember a job is just a job, it does not make you who you are. Female-empowering story!
