Review: Everyone Worth Knowing



Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger

I was curious about this title, the second novel from the author of The Devil Wears Prada (which I'm told was a good movie, but that I haven't seen yet).

Bette quits her dull, dull job in a fit of pique one day, and then is hooked up into a new job by her uncle - working as an agent for a fabulous PR agency that throws parties, knows the who's who of celebs, and gets paid to party.

I saw a lot of similarities between this and Devil but enjoyed it just the same as over the top, escapist chick lit. You know how it will end, but it's fun getting there...

Note: I listened to the audio version, narrated by Eliza Dushku of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame. She has an incredibly distinctive voice, and did a nice job with the narration.
