Book Description

20 Jun 2013

From the author of the million copy bestselling The Devil Wears Prada.

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

Emmy has just split with her boyfriend of five years. A serial monogamist, she suddenly realises how much she’s missed the thrill of single life. A new job travelling across the globe could offer her the one thing she is craving, so she vows to find a man on every continent for some pure no-strings-attached fun.

Adriana is stunning and can have any man she desires. Yet all she wants is an eligible bachelor who'll slip a five-carat Harry Winston diamond on her finger.

Leigh has a doting boyfriend that most girls would kill for. But when literary bad boy Jesse Chapman asks to work with her and more, she just can't refuse.

The three friends make a pact – come hell or high water, they must change one thing in their lives by the end of the year…

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 10 July 2008
Format:Paperback
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really disappointing 19 Jun 2008
By Amanda
Format:Paperback
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...

2.0 out of 5 stars hard read............. 9 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
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 .

1.0 out of 5 stars Not great 26 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sadly, not very good 6 Oct 2008
By Lisette
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars FUN AND FUMBLES IN THE SEARCH FOR TRUE LOVE 4 Jun 2008
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.
