I gave this book a try a few years back. Something about the book made it difficult for me to get into. To be honest, I gave it a few tries and days but ultimately never finished the book. ( )

So I don't like Weisberger's books. They lack the charm of Helen Fielding and her characters are much what I imagine the cast of the Hills grows up to be.

It was good for a lazy, rainy day read or maybe while stuck on an airplane. But I won't be passing it around any time soon. ( )

I know I'm never happy witha Lauren Weisberger book, but I still read them. This one follows three women about to turn 30 all looking for happiness...well, duh! Who isn't looking for happiness?! Didn't love it, didn't hate it. It was just a book. ( )

eh. it was enjoyable but i wouldn't be running out to buy it anytime soon. it's a quick read--three hours or so. the characters all kind of get to you though. some of the guys are completely unrealistic and at least two of the three main characters are ridiculously stereotypical and somewhat nerve-grating. nevertheless, "i liked it."

Book description
From CD Case: Lauren Weisberger, the best-selling author of Everyone Worth Knowing, turned heads on the pop lit scene with The Devil Wears Prada, her hit debut. Chasing Harry Winston finds three glamorous Manhattan gal pals making a pact to positively refashion their lives--before hitting the big three-oh.

Emmy, Leigh, and Adriana--who've been best friends for a decade--have some very personal issues. Just as Emmy is poised to receive the engagement righ she's longed for, her boyfriend drops her for his flirtatious, young personal trainer. Leigh, an up-and-coming publishing house star, is in danger of having her career derailed by the literary world's grandest snob. And as for Brazilian bombshell Adriana, she must come to terms with the inevitability of her beauty's eventual fading. It's time for all three girls to seriously reassess their futures.
