    1. 2010- This book was not what I was expecting based on the cover. I thought it was to be some slightly scandalous chick-lit. Instead, the author tried to take a plot, which was certainly scandalous and make it ""smart."" I got sick of the main character almost immediately, as well as the many references to philosophy. I have no idea what type of person would enjoy this book, as it was such an odd mixture. Not recommended.

    2. Trashy chick lit masquerading as something more intellectual. Don't be fooled by the constant references to Kant - it's still your typical "girl gets into trouble, girls sulks, girl finds miraculous way out of trouble" formula of most chick lit novels.Still, for some reason, it was relatively enjoyable. Even if I was embarrassed to read it in public (see: the cover).

    3. A very funny (sly, subtle humor) book with very memorable characters. More than once I laughed out loud. However, its also a compelling story with an interesting (but not necessarily unpredictable in retrospect) twist near the end. I'd recommend it!

    4. Characters with personalityNot a chick-lit book, but a novel with complex, interesting characters. A modern Moll Flanders whose attitudes about family, friends, class, race and love melt as she grows. Witty and erudite language--a treat.

    5. I really enjoy books about people who feel displaced or at loose ends. At the same time, I don't have a lot of patience for the maudlin. This book is gaspingly funny at times and has enough literary references to make me feel like an uneducated idiot. I love modern books that are enamoured of older ones--it gives you a new reason to read a classic (William Makepeace Thackeray's "Vanity Fair")beyond the standard, "It's a classic!" So enjoy on two levelsyour gut and your mind!

    6. This book is very funny in a way that takes you in dif ways to laugh out loud too .ry good writen .e should write more she is a very smart and funny author it is a very good and smart book to go out a but or tell your library to get and read it your self after you read it you'll still want to go out and buy it your self a very good well writen book

    7. I really wanted to love this book. There were some really good and clever moments but overall it felt like the writer was trying too hard. The main character sometimes felt ridiculous and fake and that was distracting. I had such high hopes. The idea surrounding this book was so good. Too bad it didn't entirely come together.

    8. I couldn't finish this one at all. It was not well written. I wasn't in the least convinced by the dialogue. The author put a lot of what should have been in a 3rd person narration into the main character's mouth and it sounded stitled.

    9. Yum, yum, yum. This was for me what "The Devil Wore Prada" was for the rest of the reading public. I'll be watching for her next book.

    10. Started reading the book. I think i will enjoy this book. I do not have a specific genre when I read books. But reading an English book from a "neighbor", for some reason makes me excited.

    11. this book is more 2.5 stars than 3. the main character is so obnoxious that she is hard to connect with and the ending seemed rushed.
