Di solito non mi faccio influenzare troppo da una copertina: so che è semplicemente un involucro, e che non sempre l'estetica rispecchia il contenuto. Quando ho visto questo libro, però, me ne sono innamorata all'istante: copertina rigida, con angoli smussati, colori allegri che ricordano le vecchie rilegature. Ho letto il primo capitolo su un settimanale e, anche se sembra la solita commedia degli equivoci, ho deciso di regalarmelo: solo per la confezione.
Lettura piacevole e divertente, anche se spesso mi sono chiesta come può una persona essere così stupida...Iz-Wiz è unica, e mi è pure più simpatica dei personaggi della Kinsella. ( )

Loved it.
Every bit as good as Sophie Kinsella! ( )

Had a few funny moments and a little twist at the end but, mostly I hated this book. The main character gets herself into sticky situations because she lies. That's not funny. ( )

Isabel Bookbinder is a clerical assistant with dreams of becoming a bestselling novelist. The problem is, she spends more time planning her fabulous new life than writing her novel. Though cute in the Bridget Jones and Confessions of a Shopaholic vein, this story starts out well but eventually descends into so much silliness that I really stopped rooting for Isabel. ( )
