Since I know one of my two loyal readers owns, and is probably planning on reading, this book, I won't spoil anything.

Overall, pretty good. Got you kind of down and depressed at times, with all the references to porn and how the whole world revolves around sex. Which you know all too well when you're female and in your 20s, particularly if you've ever lived in LA.

Other than that, a pretty good read. It's basically about a girl in her mid-twenties, who graduated from a prestigious college back east, and can't get a "REAL" job. She's pretty stressed about what she's going to do with her career and how she's gonna get started. Of course, I can totally relate to that, and it was that basic storyline that got me to check the book out.

Like The Nanny Diaries, also written by the authors, the book got kinda whiny at times, and as I mentioned, kinda got my spirits down. And I don't think I laughed once reading this book. But, it was definitely entertaining enough!
