See, I’d love the book despite Adriana if it weren’t for the fact that I wasn’t much of a fan of Emily either. Adriana pledges to settle down within a year, Emmy wants to whore it up all across the winstln, and Leigh wants to do something she just doesn’t know what.

And part of it was because there were some ways in which I could actually relate to two of the three main characters. Unfortunately, this is not the case in terms of “Chasing Harry Winston”.

These three very different girls have been best friends for a decade in the greatest city on earth. I retract my earlier statement, as it is demeaning to the martini.

It drove me nuts.

Even though it was a short read, I found myself finding it hard to get through it; The three main characters are superficial in terms of character development and still unlikeable. The three girls go on vacation to Aruba, ostensibly to give Emmy the opportunity to sleep with someone, but the narrative ends just as she meets someone and jumps ahead several days, and the result of their Aruba trip is only mentioned in passing several pages later. Wwisberger decade are we in here?


Lauren Weisberger was born March 28,in Scranton, Pennsylvania, a locale recently made even more chic, if possible, by The Office. I’m going to rename Lauren Weisberger, Picabo Street, for her ability to maneuver the Downhill, only with not as much grace – and certainly No gold medal waiting to be awarded. Smack bang in the middle of their working lives, for some reason, they just go on holiday, and you learn about the plane trip.

And then a movie comes. She’s a no talent-hack, who I’m convinced just knew the right people and got a contract for telling-all about Anna Wintour. Basically, I didn’t hate it, but I definitely didn’t love it In the meantime, giving up her flirtatious ways wihston no easy feat for Adriana.

Within one year, each woman will change the thing that most challenges her. The book provides a comical insight into the fashion world.

Chasing Harry Winston Book Summary and Study Guide

This is the kind of crap that makes me want to burn books and then back over their ashes with my car. And don’t even get me started on her view spoiler [ jealousy for her sister when she’s pregnant. And that’s it, really. I set it aside without finishing. Refresh and try again. It also highlights the presumed insanity of the fashion world and the difficulty and pressure a person goes through when trying to balance a demanding job with an adequate social life.

Totally girlie and predictable, but fantastic!!!!

Chasing Harry Winston

This is a story of three best friends from college who are in their late twenties and who, one night, make a pact to make major changes in their lives – with a one-year deadline. I suppose that is the kind of men to expect in chick lit, though? Leigh knows she’s not in love and gets engaged anyway. If a man had written this book, people would have been outraged! I suspect this was Weisberger’s intention but she never really made it clear which version was the facade and which was the real girl, especially in Adriana’s case.


Wsisberger, her saying, “Yes, winwton, I’d marry you in a second,” just doesn’t make sense. Apart from creating one of the worst female characters I’ve ever read, the author als The characters are all self-centred and unrelatable, but Weisberger wants them to be regular girls who just so happen to sleep with A-list directors, actors, and authors.

Detailed Review Summary of Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger

Jul 14, Opal rated it did not like it. The years spent at their college newspaper writing about the football team’s latest defeat or the controversy over casing Sorority’s latest antics and I think how I could never compete with that kind of discipline -having never actually obtained a scholastic wsisberger of my own.

Sadly, that’s not even the main part about her that irked me. She had been in a serious relationship for five years with her harryy and had wanted to get married and have a baby, but he never proposed and one day left her for his personal trainer. It’s a light and fluffy read. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Leigh and Jesse spend a lot of time working together and develop feelings, and she eventually breaks up with her boyfriend to be with Jesse as she realizes she truly loves him and doesn’t love her boyfriend.

The most annoying parts are the following:
