Once matriculated at Cornell University, all civic-minded extracurriculars fell by the wayside. I kept reading only because I thought and hoped for the love story to swap me off my feat. For me, this was painful, painful reading.

The bottom line for me is that the book functions well as a satire of the fact that human beings value connections with other humans.

It’s so precisely of this very specific time that I kept weisbergeer at the funny ways we were back then. A graduate of Cornell University, she lives in Connecticut with her husband and two children. Maybe chick lit is not made for me. It lets you forget about everyday life and the stresses that accompany it. It was not boring, but also lacked excitement and life somewhere in between.

A really disappointing read. I think it will be very difficult if not impossible to weisbetger about this period, post pre-obama, so accurately again.

Just long ago enough to be nostalgic but so recent that it feels contemporary. I would not recommend it, unless you loved The Devil Wears Prada since the atmosphere feels the same. Weisberger’s bestselling The Devil Wears Prada hinged on a similar fish-out-of-water scenario, and while it may wiesberger worked then, this time around it feels like a rehash.


Please stop with the dreaded respect line.

And what can I say about it? My biggest complaint with “Prada” had been that it was too freaking long for what it was. Really not worth reading unless it’s the last book in the world, though. Recommended for public libraries.

Honestly, if I hadn’t read “the devil wears prada” I would have liked this book. They go to turkey for New Years for a job, however, Sammy goes as he works for Isabelle, Who is just this person.

Seeing it is about high fashion, partying, and basically the social scene of everything high society, the references to Lindsay Lohan, Playboy Bunnies, Paris Hilton’s sex tape, P. Bette is surprisingly successful at her new job, even as she’s constantly complaining about “the ridiculousness of what we were doing”—i.

Bette Robinson is a twentysomething Emory graduate who shunned her parents’ hippie ideals in favor of a high-paying yet excruciatingly boring job at a prestigious investment bank. All in all, it was anticlimactic and swathed in sentimentality. He claimed to be serious about her but he always put his career above Bette’s welfare.


Lauren moved on to Departures magazine, where she wrote word reviews by day and took writing classes by night. Annoying, mindless, and not worth knowing. Everyone Worth Knowing is a book which has been lying in a corner of my shelves for many years.

Everyone Worth Knowing – Wikipedia

One of the worst books I’ve ever read. This book is ok, full of weird contradictions and missed opportunities that make it seem like it was never or only very vaguely reread after a first draft, or maybe written by an lsuren. I’m assuming that Weisberger has the shortest memory in history, and her publisher also suffers from the same affliction.

Bette Robinson quits her knnowing, thankless banker job, and starts working at Manhattan’s hottest PR firm where she is expected to party and be seen at the trendiest clubs and restaurants in NYC.

Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger

Books of the Week. It’s probably frustratingly dated to some readers now, but I think in another ten years it will come across as rather cute and retro, and the accoutrements of this peculiar time, when it was OK to be rich and bitchy AND not involved in SoulCycle will only stand out more. People printed things off of fveryone.
