Okay, this is what I get for adding this to my to read list and then waiting eight years to read it This book does not stand the test of time Seeing it is about high fashion, partying, and basically the social scene of everything high society, the references to Lindsay Lohan, Playboy Bunnies, Paris Hilton s sex tape, P Diddy and his entourage, etc are silly And the references to fashion sense are certainly outdated as well Or maybe I m just too old for this ridiculousness any I don Okay, this is what I get for adding this to my to read list and then waiting eight years to read it This book does not stand the test of time Seeing it is about high fashion, partying, and basically the social scene of everything high society, the references to Lindsay Lohan, Playboy Bunnies, Paris Hilton s sex tape, P Diddy and his entourage, etc are silly And the references to fashion sense are certainly outdated as well Or maybe I m just too old for this ridiculousness any I don t care about this stuff at all any and it really just seems trivial and pointless to read about it And this is a yawn story anyway, very much like the author s muchpopular book The Devil Wears Prada, but not near at good Girl loses banking job, gets a job at a PR firm, gets into the party life and in the tabloids, kicking and screaming the whole way, gets a crush on a lowly bouncer, kisses bouncer, a Three s Company misunderstanding happens, then bouncer and innocent girl who realizes she hates the backstabbing PR business, both run off into the sunset together Ergh This is chick lit, but for someone who doesn t really have a brain cell in their head at all Annoying, mindless, and not worth knowing When I started reading this book I forgot that a I had read it before and b it was stupid.
