Proof that I'm a bitch
on May 26, 2011
I made the terrible mistake of loading this book on my iPad before a long flight. Omg. After a few pages, I was beginning to feel the horrible desperation of the avid reader WITHOUT A BOOK. Because, my friends, this is not a book. Certainly not a proper book with a beginning, an end, some degree of character development, and a story arc. It is a dreadful mish-mash of cliches and utterly unrealistic events. There are also a lot of misspelled words (pet peeve of mine). Here's how I knew almost immediately this book would not really be about fashion. Her "Bitch-proof suit" is described as having an A-line skirt. The last time I saw anyone wearing an A-line skirt was in the seventies. This book is embarrassingly awful. And I wasn't looking for literature, just a fun read to pass the time.
However, my huge issue with books of this sort is this; who are the people writing the glowing reviews? Because after reading the reviews, and then actually reading this book means I simply cannot trust Amazon reviews. There is no way an actual reader could find this book to be anything but dreadful and amateurish. IMHO.
