And this isn't it. It is hard to believe that the author who came up with something as funny and original as The Devil Wears Prada came up with this. Three women living in a city who talk about sex, sex, and sex. Oh, once in a while there is a mention about a career but mostly it's 3 shallow women talking about sex. It is so unoriginal so not funny it is hard to believe it's the same author. I'm so disappointed that I used this for one of my credits.
Pretty good book. The characters are interesting and mostly believable. The setting in New York works with the story but the lives are pretty superficial and it is hard to really get involved. Would make a good beach read. Not as good as "Last Night at the Chateau Marmont".
Very entertaining, and the narrator, Laurel Lefkow, does a wonderful job. This is my favorite of all of Lauren Weisberger's books. The characters are endearing, the book is funny, AND it's set in New York -- what's not to like? Thank you audible for having the unabridged version of this book.
The narration was well done and easy to listen to. The story was frivolous and reminds me of "How to Marry a Millionaire" meets "Sex in the City". Any woman an relate to the characters on some level, whether it's through desire to be a part of the silver-spoon or highly successful crowds, how it feels to be single or in a relationship that has run its course, or the need to feel independent of the grips of men or the stigma society puts on us.
I listened to the book at work and it took awhile to understand the who the women were, so I'll most likely listen o it again to fill in the blanks of details I missed the first time.
Don't waste credit on this. I feel tricked. I couldn't get past chapter two...I hate when an author has a one hit wonder. I loved the Devil Wears Prada m but this doesn't even come close.
Lauren Weisberger with Laurel Lefkow as the audible expression really understands the soul of these girls/women. I have read and given this book to many friends so the fun of having this in my ear as I log the walking miles and not noticing them underfoot is the payoff. This audio book is like being with the girlfriends one never tires to be around. Need to run, Adriana is sharing her strategies that only a Brazilian woman with her understanding of male/female dynamics can provide!
"Very sex and the city"
I enjoyed this book in the main although it palled in parts and I got to 'so what' a couple of times. Overall an enjoyable example of it's genre but a bit too airhead to be really gripping.. Great narrator though.,
"loved this book"
I loved this book! I have listened to it 3 times and will probably keep listening to it for years to come. Its enchanting, fun and light-hearted.
"So not the devil wears prada"
I didn?t really like this installment of Lauren Weisberger books I found it a bit pretentious, the characters are just annoying, and the story is rubbish not at all as brilliant as the devil wears prada.
I got this book because it was on sale. I loved it. A lot lighter and more fun than Devil Wears Prada, the story of three friends living in New York from three very different backgrounds. Kind of Sex in the City but not. Good narrator. Well worth the price I paid.
