I found this book quite disappointing. From the the description it seemed as if it would be quite entertaining. Unfortunately, it wasn't one of those books you can't put down and I had trouble paying attention while listening.
I was hesitant to buy this book after reading some negative reviews on Amazon, but I gave it a go and I have to say it was kind of fun and hard to stop listening to. I think this one is even better than The Devil Wears Prada and recommend this book if you want something light to read.
I'm afraid I didn't get past the first section of this audiobook - it was so hard to follow and I lost track of who was who. The narrator has a very fast paced American accent - which fits with the setting and that's great - but I found I was being left behind as I tried to understand the nuances of what was being said.
It's a promising idea but it is actually too detailed.
I didn't find that I was engaged with any of the characters - and I truly wanted to be - even the heroine seems to change between being 'normal' and an airhead!
Sorry - not enough depth for me.
I really enjoyed this. Having previously purchased 'The Devil Wears Prada' I was both interested and nervous to see this new offering. Interested, as I really enjoyed the style of the previous novel and hoped for good things. Nervous, as so often a second novel doesn't live up to a great first one.
I wasn't dissappointed though and my nerves proved to be misplaced. It's quirky, funny, entertaining and involving. At times I found myself grinning, laughing out loud or cringing. It's well written and well read and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
