Jen Lancaster writes about her high-flying job, the loss thereof and subsequently the trials and tribulations suffered and overcome. It is entertaining, honest and sometimes funny. She openly mentions having read and admired 'Dreamworld of a Shopaholic' and in places one feels has tried to take a bit of its sparkle for her own work, too. I don't feel this book deserves quite as much praise as the hype in the US would have you believe, but it is a good read nevertheless. Plus it is quite refreshing to read a young woman write a memoir which does not have the pursuit of a man as it's centre point. ;-)

Shame about the content. You can tell that Jen Lancaster has been faithful to her experiences, but real life just ain't that interesting. This is supposed to be a riches to rags story, but if I'd take this girls kinda hardship any day! Ultimately she's got a great boyfriend (who becomes her husband), great (financially) supportive parents and she's unemployed for a bit. Oh and then she gets a book deal. She also thinks she's funnier than she is. Loved the opening pages, would get you to buy the book, so does she really give a toss about the rest?
