No he leído el trabajo anterior de la autora, pero este no es una novela, es un gran cliché encuadernado. Aunque la autora describe bien las distintas situaciones, tan típicas de un "chic- lit", y hay que reconocer que no escribe nada mal, nos muestra una historia simplona, superficial y muy, MUY previsible.
Pero lo peor son las protagonistas. Pensaba que puestos a tratar de estereotipos de mujeres, que menos que utilizar tres distintos, uno para cada protagonista, que retratara a distintos tipos de mujeres. ¡Pero NO! Nos encontramos tres mujeres que forman parte del mismo estereotipo, al que se le ha cambiado alguna característica, para que no resulten exactamente iguales.
En resumen, libro tonto, superficial, mediocre y lleno de la misma bazofia que caracteriza al género "chic-lit" con el que, muy pocas mujeres podrán identificarse....Continua
Che pentimento aver letto questo libro. Tempo e soldi buttati. NOIA; NOIA;NOIA!!!!!!!
This is my second time reading this book but the first was years ago and I don't like writing a review for a book thats not fresh in my mind. However I do remember liking the book when I read it the first time and although my preferences on books genres and whatnot have changed I still enjoyed this. I tend to try and read a book in the chick-lit genre every once in awhile, mainly because they're just such easy, carefree reads. I see my favourite genres of books such as paranormal romance, young adult and fantasy as gourmet meals for the mind. I see chick-lit as a tasty little chocolate bar! And this was enjoyable, it can actually be qute hard sometimes to find an author in this genre who doesn't undoubtedly venture into the overly cliched, sappy, lovey-dovey stuff. Weisberger doesn't do this. Obviously her most famous novel is the Devil Wears Prada but Chasing Harry Winston is actually just as good a read. She has a good style of writing that keeps you interested in all the characters.
So basically this novel is centered around three women in New York who are trying ti find happiness in their lives. Adriana is a self-centered, spoilt litlle rich girl who at thirty years old is desperate to find a rich husband who will look after her for the rest of her life. I found Adriana wearing most of the time. She epitomises everything I hate. She had no independence, was so obsessed with her looks and was basically not a very nice person. But somehow the author made her likable. I don't know how she did it either but she did. And the ending does give her some credibility as a good character so you don't feel as guilty for liking such a shallow character.
Emmy and Leigh were much more normal and relatable. Leigh was tsuck in a relationship she didn't want even though everyone around her told her it was perfect. And Emmy just decided to make a whore out of herself for a year as she (quite respectfully) had only slept with a couple of men before her current boyfriend ends it with her.
The morals in this story are a bit dodgy you have to admit but it is an enjoyable read. And you come away from it thinking, I must meet up with the girls for a night out. I liked it but didn't love it....Continua
Of course this is a good book for summer, to read on the seaside during a sunbath. It's a funny story about three thirty women in New York that decide to make a good proposal for the next year. One wants to find a husband, another wants to become less serious and to have some sexual adventure without future projects and the last one...secretly wants to break out with her boyfriend with she has still wait to fallen in love. Note the bird... Is the best funny "character" of these pages....Continua
