Not bad. Fairly predictable but in a comfortable way. ( )

Only okay chick lit. Formulaic. Needs editing. A poor relation to [The Devil Wears Prada]. ( )

OK, so I'm relying on somebody who doesn't have good taste. I think it is somebody at Library Journal -- so it is somebody who doesn't think "the public" has good taste. Anyway, there probably are spoilers. This was really disappointing. I almost put it down but it went fast & was harmless. But it was just stupid. OK, not stupid, I mean, you take The Devil Wears Prada & Sex and the City and good old Bridget Jones and a bunch of other things and make a pastiche & maybe you make some money. But in this book Mr. Big wants to marry her and she has enough depth to want Aidan instead. The characters are so cardboard and the situations so dopey. I don't recommend this book.

As the genre goes, it's pretty good; compared to most American chick lit books, it's great. Sort of like [book: The Devil Wears Prada], but without the whining. ( )
