I picked up this book after reading "Legally Blonde," thinking it would be a book about the unfairness of the sorority bimbo stereotype (well, I'm hopeful, I was a sorority girl back in college). This book doesn't even have anything to do with sororities, so the title is a real misnomer. The way the cosmetic companies were run was so ill-researched-- that was what really did it for me. I got about 1/3 of the way through before the grammatical errors and the implausibility of the entire book got on my nerves so bad that I threw this book across the room and said, "this book is awful!" and quit reading.
OK, I'm being a bit harsh, this is somebody's blood, sweat, and tears. But, seriously, I was dissappointed in this book. I wonder if the publisher even had a proof editor read this book before publishing. Somebody off the street can't just walk into the corporate headquarters of a multi-million-dollar company, especially into the place where confidential files are kept, like the ingredients and formula to the cosmetics. When that happened, that's when I threw this book across the room. There's sign-ins, check-ins, certain areas of companies that are restricted to employees only, electronic badges that unlock doors, and to work in the headquarters of such an office would probably require an extensive security and background check on the social security number-- how would Leah get two separate ones for herself and Candi-with-an-I? And that's super-illegal, too, but then again, big bro Steve could probably pull a few strings. But, then again, I'm basing my observations on the way that all my companies I've ever worked for operate.
There was also the idea that a wig and a bra could fool the guy you're dating. Uh, what about the color of your eyes? Your face shape? Her smell? I mean, come on, does Leah really think Mark's that stupid? IS Mark that stupid? Is Mark only looking at her hair color and her boobs? What does that say about what Leah thinks about men?
I thought the first scene between Mark and Candi was funny, but it seemed to be all down-hill from there. I don't quite get why all these people are talking about how funny this book is in their reviews. I would NOT recommend this book.
