Reviews about Everyone Worth Knowing (7):
Quynaus
Weisberger's first novel The Devil Wears Prada hinged on a similar fish-out-of-water scenario, only this time it feels like a fake.

27 year old Bettina Robinson (Bette) quits her job at a New York Bank and finds work at a posh PR agency, changing her dark pants and old jackets for low cut Seven jeans and barely there tops so she can hang out with the beautiful people at "in" places like Bungalow 8, Nobu, The Meat Packing District, etc. although she is so clueless that at first she doesn't even know what Bungalow 8 is.

Bette begins as an entertaining enough character, but it isn't long before Weisberger's caricature of her becomes tedious: Bette is surprisingly successful at her new job, even as she's constantly complaining about the ridiculousness of what the world of fashion and celebs brings to one's plate, i.e., orchestrating Manhattan social events in such a way that the agency's clients look good in gossip columns such as Page Six.

Bette's personal life gets equally ludicrous treatment, as she enters into a "just for looks" and very public relationship with gay British heartthrob, as her friends and family, as well as the guy she really fancies, look terrified.

The book occasionally entertains but not nearly often enough. Kind of disappointing compared with her 1st novel.

I liked the Devil Wears Prada but was annoyed by the lack of understanding from the main character's friends and family. I was very disappointed to find that theme the focus of Weisberger's second book. In both books the women are working crazy jobs with long hours. The author keeps rehashing how difficult the working situations are and how upset the girls friends are that they aren't around as much. These women need to stand up for themselves! Obviously Weisberger blew off her friends when she worked at Vogue, but she needs to stop whining about it and write some characters with back-bone! As a busy lawyer, I often have to cancel dinner or weekend plans because of the demands of work. My friends may not be thrilled, but they understand. They certainly don't ignore me or refuse to speak to me as the characters in this book do. The author seems to feel that good people never put work first. I think she needs to be a bit more in touch with the real world.

I bought 'Everyone Worth Knowing' because I had like 'The Devil Wears Prada'. In my opinion, 'Everyone...' is a dud. The theme, from the very start, is Boyfriends. Our heroine is a slender, pretty young woman who happens to have a wealthy famous uncle who provides the girl with a plum PR job in New York city. The heroine no sooner starts the job than she attracts the interest of the hottest bachelor in town. Come ON! This book is just a shade away from being a bodice-buster. I would not recommend it to anyone.

Kudos to Ms. Weisberger. She has captured and shared the essence of the kindness, and the deceptive sociopathic, predatory human nature in her highly entertaining, hilarious, dramatic, book.

There is a rant ... or should I say advertisement ... about romance novels and the main character's justification for reading them (her snobby parents are mortified by her choice to read them, etc. ) that rambled for ten 'kindle' pages. It's as if the author needed to justify the drivel she was writing. I've seen this before in chick lit. It is self conscious writing. This book needed an editor.

The reviews that say that this is a poorly constructed, disappointing, overhyped book baffle me. Yeah, it's not life changing. I'm not going to still be thinking about it in a year, or a week, or even tomorrow. But chick-lit isn't supposed to be like that. It's supposed to be something you read on the beach, or in the bathtub. Kind of like watching the Style Network, only you don't have to deal with infomercials at 3am, and you can do it while your boyfriend is sleeping without worrying about waking him.

I've read some pretty awful chick-lit books (most anything by Red Dress Ink before they got off the ground falls into that column) but this one's pretty good. It's a bit long, and I speed-read the last 30 or so pages (isn't the predictable ending a hallmark of chick-lit?) and there are some sideplots that I didn't quite care about, but all in all, I liked it.

The thing I like the most about Lauren Weisberger - in her first book, as well as this one - is that her heroines always come to the conclusion that there's more "out there" than what they initially expected. Her books go a bit deeper than a lot in the genre - most chick-lit deals with young women coming into their own and getting the guy in between leg waxings, but these books show girls getting what they thought they wanted, becoming disillusioned, and realizing what's really important in life.

I also like her heroines because they take risks, and seem to have their heads firmly on their shoulders, despite some setbacks. They're characters I'd want to hang out with - girls who feel more comfortable in sweats than couture and who prefer a night in with the dog than a night out at the hottest new club. The storylines are believable (I worked in PR and she doesn't lie) and the characters are engaging.

All in all, it's a good read. I give it five stars for being a good example of what the genre should be - light, airy, fun, and requiring minimal thought.

Another book that I was very disappointed in... I am from New York and felt that her portraial of the social scene in New York and the drug and sex scenes were over the top..
This was the greatest.
It brought back many memories.
I served on the USS Wisconsin during WW2 so understood what it was saying about the USN.
