Product Description

Review

PRAISE FOR LAUREN WEISBERGER:

‘This little gem mixes Sex and the City charm with dry New York wit.’ REAL

‘Sassy, insightful and sooo Sex and The City, you'll be rushing to the bookshop for your copy like it's a half price Prada sale.’ COMPANY

‘The most fun we've had in ages.’ HEAT

‘Delicious…a great insight into the world of magazines and fashion.’ RED

From the Back Cover

Three best friends. Two resolutions. One year to pull it off.

Emmy is newly single. Having always dreamed of wedding plans, she is now buying take-out for one.

Adriana is about to turn thirty. Are her days as a party girl running out?

Leigh has a gorgeous boyfriend and a great job. So why isn't she more excited about her perfect life?

The three best friends make a pact over raspberry mojitos one night - this year everything is going to change. Emmy is going to find a man on every continent for some no-strings fun. Adriana vows she'll secure a five-carat Harry Winston diamond ring on her fourth finger. And Leigh can't think of what she needs to change - until literary bad boy Jesse Chapman starts to get under her skin.

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.

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.

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 bought this because I thought "Everyone worth knowing" was a fun, light read - and it was Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price at the airport, of course. Well, this is so light, it defeats every law Newton ever had in mind. I kept on reading, hoping that it might get better half way through, but it only gets worse, not to mention that the outcome is absolutely predictable from, like, page 5 on. It is written like a really cheap dime novel. Supple breasts anyone? They were in such ecstasy they couldn't tell their limbs apart...yadda yadda. This book totally insults your intelligence and is just about good enough to use as a doorstop. I'm afraid it's not absorbing enough to use as toilet paper.

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 .

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book and am a little surprised at all the negative reviews here. This certainly isn't typical chick-lit: no ditzy girls, gay best friends, and charming men. Instead this is far more robust, and gives us three thirty year old New York women who yes, have man problems, but also have other discontents in their lives, specifically about their careers. By the end, nothing is easily resolved, some of them have far less materially than they started off with, and yet all have learned something about themselves and are happier - with or without wedding bells.

Weisberger creates women who we don't always like, but I prefer that edge of realism to the cute girls of some other authors. Adriana the Brazilian trust-fund girl is certainly the least successful of the three but, in some ways, hers is the most interesting story. Emmy has more than a touch of Sex & The City's Charlotte about her, but her story plays out in a very different way. And I enjoyed Leigh, with her anxiety and near OCD, and her dilemma: what do you do when you're engaged to the ideal man, the hero of every chick-lit novel out there, and you just can't fall in love with him back?

So overall this has all the trappings of chick-lit (yes, they are wealthy enough to wear Chanel and shop in Barney's) and yet the overall story actually undermines ideas of 'romance' as well as the pursuit of rich men and huge diamond rings (the 'Harry Winston' of the title). By the end all the women have changed their lives: but really not in the way we - and they - might have suspected. In summary, a fun yet thoughtful read.

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.
