Really enjoyed the Devil Wears Prada and bought this for a long journey. Felt it was trying to be like Sex and the City but I did not like these women and could not care what happened to them. Just an excuse for dropping a lot of brand names and showing off a wealthy lifestyle. Can an intelligent woman really have a noisy upstairs neighbour and not try to resolve the problem in some way? I only finished it because I had nothing else available to read.

After reading Everyone Worth Knowing I thought Lauren Weisberger was quite a good chick lit writer - even though I was incredibly bored by The Devil Wears Prada (both book and film). Having now read Chasing Harry Winston I realise Everyone Worth Knowing is an abberration - either than or this woman can only write a decent book every other time she tries it. The idea is a good one - but this book just doesn't deliver. The Brazilian character - Adriana - is an absolute diva who is more Jessica Rabbitt that reality, and incredibly unbelievable. I felt patronised reading about her. The other characters are weak and just on the border of believable. I suppose we can always hope that book #4 is more Everyone Worth Knowing and less like the other two? We can only wait and see...

I was quite excited about this book when I bought it but have to say it was disappointing - I found the book hard to get into and didnt actually really get into it I just read it as I cant leave a book unfinished - even though I nearly did on numerous occasions with this one - I like a book thats easy to get into straight away and keeps you hooked - unfortunatey this book didnt do that - if you dont mind books that arent easy reading you may like this one as the actualy storyline is ok just not written in a good way .

I liked Devil Wears Prada movie (had not read book) so thought I would give book a go. But could just not get into this. The characters were so shallow and 1 sided. Are you not supposed to like the main characters in books like this? Adriana was the most awful, shallow, spoilt, self centered woman I have ever had the misfortune to read about. The other 2 main females were weak, shallow and not at all interesting or easy to relate to. Glad I don't know anyone like them! Hope next book is better.

So badly written it is untrue. I enjoyed Devil Wears...., but while I knew this was not going to be the same I thought it would be as good. The characters were a pretty loathesome bunch, it was as if the author thought of every single designer name she could and then wove a story to mention them all.. Totally agree with early reviewer that it was trying (and failing dismally) to be like Sex in the City. Weak storylines, and completely irritating.

Format: Paperback
Previously (being about two third into the book) I gave this book 1 star.
Having finished it, I give it two stars.
The problem with this book is, that it takes way too long before you get to the good bit.
The characters are not very pleasant. At all.
Adriana is quite a witch with a B (not sure if I'm allowed to say the actual word here, probably not). She only cares about herself, and how beautiful she is. She can't understand why anybody in the world should get more attention then her. She lives on daddy's money, which she uses to buy the most useless things.
Leigh is very annoying. She has the perfect life, but can't manage to be happy about any part of it. She knows that, but still accepts when her boyfriend (who thinks she's madly in love with him) proposes to her.
She drags him along and I couldn't help but feel sorry for the poor guy.
Emmy just got dumped by her boyfriend of 5 years. She's devestated even though he cheated on her the whole time (and she knew all about it) and never seemed to love her anyway.
She's obsessed with having a husband and lots of babies as quick as possible.
The girls make a pact.. Emmy will sleep with a man on every continent and Adriana will secure a four karat engagement ring from a rich guy.
Emmy can't seem to lighten up a bit, and Adriana seduces a rich and famous director, though she doesn't actually care about him, and doesn't even want to get married. She just thinks that being (almost) thirty, makes you really really old.
Leigh get's to edit the latest book of literary wonder Jesse Chapman, who get's under her skin.
The book is about 300 pages, and the first 200 (at least) are all about how the girls live their lives being annoying, sellfish and really unpleasant to read about.

Format: Audio CD
Chick lit fans probably know all the anticipated plots; they may have seen them all and read them all. But, they definitely haven't heard them all until they give a listen to Lily Rabe's delicious reading of Chasing Harry Winston by The Devil Wears Prada author Lauren Weisberger.

A seasoned stage, televison and film actress Rabe gives added verve to this story of three glam New Yorkers approaching thirty and none too happy about it. Accomplished actress that she is Rabe easily shifts from voicing Emmy to Leigh to Adriana. Each of our heroines has distinctly different personalities, which are revealed by this actress's subtle switches in modulation and tone.

Despite dissimilarities in character this trio of women have remained steadfast friends since college days. But now as the inevitable 30 looms each decides it is time for a dramatic change and is determined to see it through.

Amiable and amenable Emmy is the culinary artist of the group. She'd make a perfect wife and mom but despite these obvious qualifications she has been dropped by Duncan whom she envisioned meeting at the altar. So, Emmy decides since faithfulness hadn't gotten her anywhere she'd play the field - a large field and have sex with a number of men until she finds the perfect one.

Leigh is the bookish type, a book editor who likes what she does and loves the man of her dreams, sportscaster Russell. However, when Leigh is assigned to edit the latest by the very attractive young married Jesse Chapman she finds that more than punctuation is involved.

Adriana is the predictable bombshell, daughter of wealthy Brazilian parents. She's been more than out and about, and thinks that perhaps the perfect man for her is a famous movie director.
