*ring* Chasing Harry Winston
6 journalers for this copy...
Three very different girls have been best friends for a decade in the greatest city on earth. As they near thirty, they're looking toward their future... but despite all they've earned -first class travel, career promotions, invites to all the right parties, and luxuries small and large- they're not quite sure hey like what they see...
One Saturday night at the Waverly Inn, the girls make a pact: within a single year, each will drastically change her life. Their friendship is forever, but everything else is on the table. Three best friends. Two resolutions. One year to pull it off. Let the games begin.
My opinion: I liked it in general, but I was a little disappointed that it was 'just another chicklit' instead of a chicklit that would outdo most others, like Devil Wears Prada. More specifically i didn't like the end, it is too sudden, too messy. Almost as if she simply _had_ to finish within a very limited number of pages, and oh yeah, it had to be a happy ending... Gives a little of a bad after taste, unfortunately.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Today, I went to the post office, and this is book is now on its way to bookwormess in Finland.
I really enjoyed this book. I especially liked it to see that it is possible for three totally different women to be friends. I saw the movie from "The devil wears prada" years ago, and I already bought "Chanel chick"... So I'm definitely into this writer!
To be continued...
Thanks for letting me read it anyway! I already PM’d BOKWORMY, but she asked to be skipped. Now I’m waiting for kbmarsh to reply in my PM and then drop the book in the mail.
Edited on Sunday May 24, 2009:
Just heard from kbmarsh that she wishes to be skipped too, so PM'd the next participant.
Edited on Thursday June 6, 2009:
No response from k256 after two PM's in almost two weeks time, so I'm moving on to next...
