Recommended for: NO ONE

The only reason I waste words on this piece of trash is that it holds the distinction of being THE WORST BOOK I EVER READ. The title was held previously (for a good 15 years previously) by "The Bridges of Madison County," and it took some DOING to surpass that awfulness.

I could write for three days about how much I hated this book. I still can't believe I finished it, and the only explanation I have is that it was kind of like not being able to look away from a trainwreck. Actually, "trainwreck" is a compliment to this thing. It assumes that it was, at some point, on track.

Not so. Bleah.

Kristin Have ya read Sex in the City or Trading up (same author)? They are actually much worse (shocking, I know)


Belinda Oh, no no no no. You could not pay me to read another book by this "author."


Sabiel Those two books Kristin mentioned are actually by Candace Bushnell, although that certainly does not in any way warrant their reading...


Belinda Ha ha...I didn't even notice! I have managed to steer entirely clear of Bushnell to this point in my life.


Sabiel It's kind of annoying that she's writing the same exact book over & over again, merely changing a few details to make it appear more timely...

It makes me sad to think that she has a career writing....


message 7: by Jan (new) - rated it 1 star

Jan Pike I don't know why I read this book - I can only think that I must have run out of cornflake packets to read.


Belinda And this was a bestseller, people. And optioned for a film. I weep for humanity.


message 9: by Michele (new)

Michele Mai This would not be a book I'd pick up and say, "Oooo, this looks like a good one." That was pretty much my impression of the movie as well (which I've never seen).

As always, I trust your opinion and I will steer clear of said novel.
