When Imogen returns to work at Glossy after six months away, she can barely recognize her own magazine. Eve, fresh out of Harvard Business School, has fired "the gray hairs", put the managing editor in a supply closet, stopped using the landlines, and hired a bevy of manicured and questionably attired underlings who text and tweet their way through meetings. Imogen, darling of the fashion world, may have Alexander Wang and Diane von Furstenberg on speed dial, but she can't tell Facebook from Foursquare and once got her iPhone stuck in Japanese for two days. Under Eve's reign, Glossy is rapidly becoming a digital sweatshop - hackathons rage all night, girls who sleep get fired, and "fun" means mandatory, company-wide coordinated dances to Beyoncé. Wildly out of her depth, Imogen faces a choice - pack up her Smythson notebooks and quit or channel her inner geek and take on Eve to save both the magazine and her career. A glittering, uproarious, sharply drawn story filled with thinly veiled fashion personalities, The Knockoff is an insider's look at the ever-changing world of fashion and a fabulous romp for our Internet-addicted age.

I loved this book! The narrator was fantastic, I felt like I was in the office with the ladies, stressing out and eating bird food! The story was engaging and touching, a coming of age saga with a techy twist. I can't believe I'm saying this but The Knockoff blew away The Devil Wears Prada. If you enjoyed the book or even the movie, you'll love this!

Give the narrator a chance.
In my initial review of the book, which was hastily written after only listening to the book for an hour, I bashed the narrator for yelling the entire time and giving me a headache. I was very intrigued by the story, so I kept listening the next day. As I got totally into the story, the narrator became brilliant in her depiction of the various characters. The narrator was loud and as annoying as heck when she was "Eve" but that was the epitome of Eve! I take back what I originally said about the narrator and hope others will give her a chance to make the book and characters come alive. Well done. Brilliant.
