it was ok
bookshelves: 2009, light-reads, international-fiction

So I totally thought this would be a light, fun read -- chicklit, after all, is a guilty pleasure of mine, and in between heavy literature I like to read about fun stuff like Hollywood assistants, club hopping and bed hopping, jet-setting, etc. Instead this book turned out to be really sad, which would have been OK if it had been better written. It was way long for nothing, with asides that were neither entertaining nor relevant to the story. I'm kind of disappointed to have wasted a "light read" on this. I hope her other books are a little more fun and a little less tedious to read; otherwise, I think I'll stick with the Jennifer Weiners, Sophie Kinsellas (NOT Shopaholic, though), and Lauren Weisbergers of the world.

Alexis Her other books are much, much better. I HATED this one. A lot of them are light, but tackle more serious issues. Rachel's Holiday is a good read, but it does deal with alcoholism. Angels is a fun story about a Irish woman who goes to LA.
