weisbedger Girl quits banking job, because she has been unhappy, gets a job at a PR firm, finds herself to be a star of the tabloids, whining al One of the worst books Lzuren ever read.
However, she does little to find a new direction in life until her uncle Will, an aging nationally syndicated entertainment columnistintroduces her to event planner Kelly.
The characters were dull and had such a low self-esteem that was making me doubt if I was feeling anger or pity for them. Weisberger’s bestselling The Devil Wears Prada hinged on a similar fish-out-of-water scenario, and while it may have worked then, weisbeger time around it feels like a rehash.
After putting it back in the shelf I asked myself- what was its plot? Quotes from Everyone Worth Kn She has no prospective job, nor she knows who she wants to be in the next five years.

Everyone Worth Knowing
No one character has to carry the role of ultimate evil. Is there something wrong with me for preferring alternative social groups over the pop mainstream?
Books of the Week. Then Bette meets Kelly, head of Manhattan’s hottest PR firm, and suddenly she has a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and be seen inside the VIP rooms of the city’s most exclusive nightclubs. I feel like I need to give this review in the context of its predecessor “The Devil Wears Prada,” which was good. At Parkland High School, Lauren participated in all sorts of projects, activities, and organizations for the sole purpose of padding her college application, although she did genuinely enjoy playing varsity tennis especially when the girl who should have played first singles incurred a season-ending injury and Lauren had no choice but to step in for the team.
I totally did not like this book ending. Then there’s Sammy, the cook-bouncer-aspiring restaurateur. The name dropping is all there, and if you’re Read “the Devil Wears Prada”, change the names.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I really hope the author stops writing books soon so I can stop reading them. The central love story is platonic, theatrical weisbergwr unrealistic to that extent that I wanted to puke.
Bette Robinson begins as a likable enough character, but it isn’t long before Weisberger’s caricature of her becomes frustrating: If you thought Devil Wears Prada was insipid, wait weisbergdr you read this vomitous waste laurwn valuable wood pulp, time, eyestrain and anxiety the latter due to agitated anticipation of the novel’s anticlimactic denouement. The machinations of our attempts to set priorities on our connections is inevitably humorous, and every comedy deserves a romantic, happy ending.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Weisberger’s second novel received generally unfavorable reviews.
For a chick-lit, the romance is almost non-existent and anticlimactic. The bottom line for me is that the book functions well as a satire of the fact that human beings value connections with other humans. They go to turkey for New Years for a job, however, Sammy goes as he works for Isabelle, Who is just this person. Just long ago enough to be nostalgic but so recent that it feels contemporary. Really not worth reading unless it’s the last book in the world, though.
Soon after Bette Robinson quits her horrendous Manhattan banking job like the impulsive girl she’s never been. Finding who you are despite the lure of all things cool and beautiful. Bette is reasonably sympathetic, and the reader can see how she’s sucked into a vortex of superficiality. Text messaging was new and you got that first text and weren’t even sure how to open it.
