  • One of the worst books I've ever read. Stereotypical characters, dull plot consisted of superficial world building, with predictive and anticlimactic ending. The dialogues are unrealistic and immature. And don't even let me start on describing this pathetic excuse for a "love story" or spectacular failure of a love triangle. Everything is horrible about this book. Girl quits banking job, because she has been unhappy, gets a job at a PR firm, finds herself to be a star of the tabloids, whining al [...]

  • If you thought Devil Wears Prada was insipid, wait until you read this vomitous waste of valuable wood pulp, time, eyestrain and anxiety (the latter due to agitated anticipation of the novel's anticlimactic denouement).Upon reading said anticlimactic denouement (after enduring insipid, US-Weekly-grade "plot**"), one shall either (a) Throw 'book' violently against wall.(b) Throw 'book' violently at photo of current Oval Office occupant. (Offended Republicans may choose to substitute with photo of [...]

  • Weisberger's novels seem to be about 85,000 words of actual story plus an additional 15,000 words comprised solely of celebrities' names, designer brands, and various luxury goods/destinations. The novel was published in 2005, so all the references to in-brands, celebrity couples (none are still together) and hotspots (Bungalow 8 - does anyone still go there?) make the book feel dated. Also, this novel has basically the same plot as the Devil Wears Prada. Weisberger clearly though she'd found a [...]

  • If I had read The Devil Wears Prada first, I don't think I would have read Everyone Worth Knowing. The plots of these two books are so similar. Girl gets job. Girl hates job. Girl makes the best of her situation. Girl quits job.

  • I am not your typical "chick lit" fan, but I must confess that I really like this author - she writes bright, funny, light-hearted books and she can actually compose a sentence! This novel contains none of the poor grammar or flimsy plot structures you would find in Sex and the City (the novel - loved the series) or The Nanny Diaries (saw this movie last night and it was a hundred times better than the weak novel). On the other hand, I think that every girl-oriented book about a young woman maki [...]

  • Okay, this is what I get for adding this to my "to read list" and then waiting eight years to read it. This book does not stand the test of time. Seeing it is about high fashion, partying, and basically the social scene of everything high society, the references to Lindsay Lohan, Playboy Bunnies, Paris Hilton's sex tape, P. Diddy and his entourage, etc. are silly. And the references to fashion sense are certainly outdated as well. Or maybe I'm just too old for this ridiculousness anymore. I don' [...]

  • 'Everyone Worth Knowing' got me through a tough time in my life. Once this book captured my attention with its cute, little cover art, I was definitely hooked. Bette's situations and life as a whole, transported me to another world. I was lost in NYC club-hopping to the restaurants and parties that she promoted. This book delivers it all: Work, Love, Family, Stress, Friendship, Travel, Happiness & Sadness. Like the jacket says, "What happens when a girl on the fringe enters the realm of New [...]

  • I have a hard time putting an audio book on my "Read" shelf - but what the hell. I find that I will listen to books that I don't necessarily want to read. This book is a prime example. I read Weisberger's first book and liked it well enough. This is her second and it has the same feel as the first. Well meaning girl gets caught up in glamor lifestyle - Has a melt down - repents - gets love. I think this book would have really annoyed me to read - but for some reason - having it read to me by Eli [...]

  • I wasn't impressed with The Devil Wears Prada--too much hype--so wasn't expecting much from this book by the same author.However, in the end it won with me because:--I listened to the audiobook on what was a bit of an unwanted and nervewracking last-minute road trip so the distraction was greatly appreciated. --Eliza Dushku as narrator did a really great job. --I had low expectations so there was no way it could have been worse than what I was expecting.--it was abridged--hallelujah! My biggest [...]

  • 15/01/10 - Changed my rating from 2 to 1 starI cannot believe I even rated this anything other than 1 star; it was ridiculous when I recall the main plot involving the potagonist and her 'boyfriend'. A few years of reading and some growing up did wonder to your expectation in books I guess.

  • Everyone Worth Knowing is a book which has been lying in a corner of my shelves for many years. My bad experience with Devil Wears Prada and the uninteresting synopsis made me have little to no interest in reading it. It was only last month when I saw my huge TBR pile that was growing in a scary way that I decided to take some great measures such as: make a TBR jar, start reading some books that have been collecting dust in my shelves for years, and be super picky when buying new ones. This book [...]

  • The sometimes negative feedback given to "chic lit" novels is understandable at times, yet I feel that Weisberger's characters in "Everyone Worth Knowing" are written in an ordinary enough way that readers are able to more easily relate to them. The style of the writing can be seen as slightly bland because the characters are so completely normal. The are posed as every day people, doing every day things, in our often times cold world. The story is an easy read which allows for a large circle of [...]

  • This book was doomed from the start, it was the same typical "girl has lousy job, (almost always a banking job) Girl has family member that can hook her up with a "better" job, girl has no backbone whatsoever, ETCWe meet Bette, a seemingly nice girl, and right off, I could tell she was a pushover. I just don't get how this girl, who lives in New York, works around people from the city, and lives around city people, can be such a pushover, with absolutely no will, or self respect.I just don't und [...]

  • Although this book reprises the theme of examining the horrors of an entry level job, and uses a glittery version of New York City for its setting, it departs from *The Devil Wears Prada* in several ways. For one, there is more sympathy for all the characters. The protagonist is earnest, foolish, and occasionally depressed, but she seems to have more resources for moving toward what she wants than did the protagonist of *Prada*. Her boss and coworkers are colorful and sometimes devious, but also [...]

  • Read "the Devil Wears Prada", change the names. I can't believe the author ripped off her own book like that! HORRIBLE.I'm assuming that Weisberger has the shortest memory in history, and her publisher also suffers from the same affliction. "Everyone Worth Knowing" is the EXACT SAME BOOK as "The Devil Wears Prada"- all she did is change names and evil, soul sucking jobs and kept the format so predictably familiar that I was laughing half way through. The name dropping is all there, and if you're [...]

  • I feel like I need to give this review in the context of its predecessor "The Devil Wears Prada," which was good. I like the theme of finding who you really are despite the lure of all things beautiful and cool.This book's theme: Finding who you are despite the lure of all things cool and beautiful. Wait!? Did I just read the same book over again!?She name-dropped people who aren't even really that famous or cool anymore. And I got kind of annoyed when she quit her job on a whim, which seemed ou [...]

  • Boring. Maybe chick lit is not made for me. I also found boring Sushi for beginners, by Marian Keyes. Nevertheless, I loved The secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic, by Sophie Kinsella and The Beach House, by Jane Green. I think I need deeper stories, not so shallow as this one. I don't know.

  • What happens when a girl on the fringe enters the realm of New York's chic, party-hopping elite?I read this awhile ago and sadly this book didn't make an impact on me to remember it. I do remember I didn't really care for it but found some parts amusing. I recommend reading this if you have a lazy Sunday to kill.

  • This story is about a girl, who basically falls in love. Like you know every other romance story out there. Although, surprisingly I found it very good, a little long at some points but otherwise enjoyable. Not a typical romance lovey dovey thing but one where it's complicated, which I don't know I tend to enjoy more? Like who wants a book that is just straight to the point? Find some boundaries to climb Fgs! Be more realistic please, and original? Anyway, Back to the book. I totally did not lik [...]

  • Here's how they put it on . I really don't know how to summarize it myself.Bette Robinson is a twentysomething Emory graduate who shunned her parents' hippie ideals in favor of a high-paying yet excruciatingly boring job at a prestigious investment bank. One day, after a particularly condescending exchange with her boss (who sends her daily inspirational e-mails), Bette walks out on her job in a huff. After a few weeks of sleeping late, watching Dr. Phil and entertaining her dog Millington, Bett [...]

  • The Gist: Bette Robinson quits her boring, thankless banker job, and starts working at Manhattan's hottest PR firm where she is expected to party and be seen at the trendiest clubs and restaurants in NYC. She then meets local celebrity Philip Weston and unwittingly becomes a celebrity herself. Pretty soon Bette's life becomes tabloid fodder, and she discovers the price of fame as her personal and professional lives collide.Sounds interesting, right?Sadly, unfortunately, Everyone Worth Knowing do [...]

  • *This review may contain spoilers* What's it about? "Everyone Worth Knowing" is the story of what happens when a girl on the fringe enters the realm of New York's chic, party-hopping elite. Soon after Bette Robinson quits her horrendous Manhattan banking job like the impulsive girl she's never been. the novelty of walking her four-pound dog around the unglamorous Murray Hill neighborhood wears as thing as the "what are you going to do with your life" phone calls from her parents. Then Bette meet [...]

  • Looking for a fluffy, no-brains-required, everything-is-over-the-top-and-ridiculous weekend read? This fits the bill nicely. The characters are very cliched and everything is an over the top party and somehow it stills makes for a mindless entertaining read. Sometimes you just read something fun, and this book fits that.

  • I really hope the author stops writing books soon so I can stop reading them. This book is ok, full of weird contradictions and missed opportunities that make it seem like it was never or only very vaguely reread after a first draft, or maybe written by an assistant. But that aside, it's a kind of fascinating time capsule of 2004/5, when we still had land lines but also cell phones. People printed things off of websites. Text messaging was new and you got that first text and weren't even sure ho [...]

  • Library Journal: Who wouldn't want a job that allows one to party for a living? That's just what Bettina "Bette" Robinson has. When she quits working at an investment bank, her uncle, a well-connected columnist, hooks her up with the hot PR firm, Kelly & Company. For Bette, a style-challenged, romance novel–obsessed daughter of hippies, the high-stakes world of celebrity takes a little getting used to—especially once she is catapulted into the arms of one of New York's most eligible bach [...]

  • Full disclosure: I went into this with a hatred of chick-lit. I had enjoyed the guilty pleasure of The Nanny Diaries, and when my best friend told me she secretly loved chick-lit, I decided to give it a try. My first attempt (from her bookshelf) was deplorable, but I liked The Devil Wears Prada film, so I decided to give the genre a second try.This book was unbelievably terrible. The shallow, self-absorbed main character, whom we're supposed to believe is interesting enough for everyone to follo [...]

  • I enjoy a good chick-lit novel from time to time, but this one just didn't sit all that well with me. In Weisberger's defense, she follows the formula of "normal girl finds herself in celebrity world and in the end stays true to herself" to a T. It's not a great formula and it makes for rather bland story-telling, but it sells and for that I can't really hate on the author. Writing is a business.But honestly, I just hated the main character. She really had no.well, character. In the end, I found [...]

  • This is the first book I've read by this author, and reading the reviews left by many I can't help but think they're a little harsh. When I picked up this book I knew it would be predictable, not very complex and an easy read and I don't think that's a bad thing. The story was good enough to keep me hooked and I followed it easily. However, whilst reading this book I watched the film The Devil Wears Prada. I've not read the book, and now I'm not sure if I need to - it seems this book was exactly [...]
