  • This book seems like it was trying to be a fish out of water story similar to The Devil Wears Prada or The Nanny Diaries, however I don t think it is at the same level It has some funny parts, and was entertaining, but there were some references that seemed either unresolved or unnecessary why does the main character need to idly smoke pot every time she returns home It is a fairly quick read, and full of pop culture references.


  • I was really looking forward to reading this book I thought it would be like other chick lit books I ve read Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed The main reason for this is that I never really enjoyed reading it I kind of had to force myself thought the pages I didn t like the characters, and neither the hole situation.


  • better than fat bald jeff but not as good as unimaginable zero summer the first book i found from this author she manages to make her main characters un sympathetic but then somehow likeable kind of strange fun easy read



  • I wasn t really a fan of this book It is a nice story of the grass is always greener, but then turns out not to be.



  • Did not even finish the book Got about 100 pages in, and was so uninterested that I had to put it down While the Chicago setting was mildly interesting, I found zero entertainment in the narrator.
