4.0 out of 5 stars A good read
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...

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!

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. ;-)

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?
