The book started off with promise but I didn't buy the friendship of Andy and Emily, it just seemed false and fabricated. Even more so, how in hell did they become friends, and subsequently create a wedding magazine together? Also, I didn't understand why Andy went down the fashion and celebrity line of work, didn't she despise her time working at the world's biggest fashion magazine? I pictured her working at The New Yorker, writing books, moving on to bigger and better things that felt more comfortable to her.
Without giving much of the plot away, she catches up with Miranda over a business project and even though I liked reading about Miranda, there wasn't enough of her. For me, the appeal of TDWP was always about Miranda and her devilishness and I feel this book didn't feature enough of her. It was all about Andy, her life, her struggles, moaning about Miranda, her husband and Emily. Andy was incredibly unlikable, gone was her charm, innocence and overall likability of her in the beginning. She was completely shallow and self absorbed.
I really wanted to like the book, but I didn't. I felt the characters didn't have enough depth or interest. The storyline was completely predictable and just didn't match the feel of the book or the film. I would NOT advise anyone to buy this. Unless you really want to, go ahead and read it but bear in mind, you WILL be disappointed and you WILL wish that you had never bothered with it.
If I hadn't of bought the Kindle edition, then I would surely have burned the print edition!
The book opens with Andy's wedding to Max. She's moved on and has her own magazine, the plunge, with Emily. Yes, the Emily! Lots of ups and downs happen throughout the book and the ending came as a surprise.
I have to say, I struggled to get into this and found it very slow going. I just thought it was boring and not much happened. It's taken me well over a week to finish which really isn't like me at all!
I was well over a third into the book before I was into it. The part where Max betrays Andy made me so mad. I wanted to slap him. How could you do that? My only criticism is that I wanted Andy to stand up for herself a little more. The way she allowed Emily to boss her around made me want to scream. Emily hadn't changed at all.
This is not a patch on the first book but worth a read. Be prepared to stick with it though. I can't foresee a Hollywood movie anytime soon though.
If you're seeking gutsy confrontation between Andy and Miranda (which was after all the unique selling point of the film) then you will be sorely disappointed. And like the film, I think this book is trying to piggyback on "Sex & The City" (!) but doesn't even come close to evoking the same level of connection with the characters and stories.
So if you're looking for some fluff, have low expectations and can pick this up for 99p for your Kindle then go ahead. It is what it is.
