it was ok
bookshelves: never-trust-popular-opinion

In this book, we've got:

1. A damsel-in-career-distress for a heroine;

2. A London setting;

3. Abundant descriptions of "what she wore;"

4. A moment where all looks bleak and unresolvable, as though our heroine's tragic flaw just may bring her down forever;

5. A handsome hunk who, yes, is rich, and yes, ends up with our heroine (sorry for the spoiler, I'm sure you never would have seen it coming had I not just gone and ruined it for you);

6. A gratuitous ending in which our heroine ends up with her dream job, dream man, dream wardrobe and dream life.

I did the math, and yup, the formula works out. Chick lit.

That said, Isla Fisher is adorable (how could she not be) in the movie, which is a perfectly suitable form of entertainment when you're home sick and a better use of time than reading the book.
