day 11 - there's the exit door

I wish life is easy. I wish men will grow brains. I wish women will stop nagging. I wish I have endless supply of books. I wish, I wish, I wish. Oh, how we all wish! If only there's a blue dude appearing from a magic lamp to fulfill it all...

Day 11 - A book you hated

Lauren Weisberger's Chasing Harry Winston
Adriana, Emmy and Leigh are best friends living in Manhattan, New York.

Adriana - The Brazilian goddess, the ultimate slut socialite who will sleep with just about anything male.

Emmy - The flat-chested serial monogamist who had been dumped by her five-year boyfriend for a virgin cheerleader (like I would believe that for a minute!).

Leigh - The obsessive and compulsive one with lots of issues despite having perfect everything i.e boyfriend, job, place... or so her friends thought.

One day, the two of them made a pact of changing their lives in a year. Adriana is to settle with ONE guy while Emmy will sleep around as she trot around the globe within a year. Leigh? Well, she has it all, no? The perfect boyfriend every women drool upon, the job with one of the top publishers, a place of her own with lots of space, unlike Emmy's. And she has this No-Human-Contact every Monday night.

It is the story of 3 not-so-young women in the big city. Each with their own issue and conflicts.
Coming from Lauren Weisberger (The Devil Wears Prada), I was expecting a good read, if not a great one. The result: DISAPPOINTING! It was a HUGE letdown for me as I went through page by page. It's like reading a novel wrote by a lazy and amateurish author! There's nothing interesting or anything remotely new in this novel. It's bland. It's meaningless. It's just downright stupid. Even the title doesn't fit the story. At all.

I have only one word for this novel: BLEARGH!!!

Needless to say, this book is utter crap.

Words could heal... or it could hurt or maybe, it won't bring any difference. Either way, just type away!
