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.

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.

I know this book was on the best seller list of the New York Times forever but I really struggled to get through it and did not enjoy it. I found it to be more depressing than funny. Perhaps some of my negativity comes from not relating to the world of glitz and glam.

I didn't find this book nearly as hilarious as I had expected. The boss was too cruel to be funny, and too ridiculous to be believed. And in a way, the main character was even worse - what person with any self-worth could possibly put up with that kind of treatment?? And any respect or sympathy I felt for the main character went completely down the tubes when she made one particular decision near the end...

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.
