I can't get through this either. I have even tried the audio book. It becomes a chore about halfway through.

I Liked it, but it did take a bit before I got into it. The beginning was a slog

But I just returned it to the library.
On my shelf, will try it at some point. Haven't read a chick-book in a while

Need a good book version of the term chick-flick

You know it's called "chick-lit", right?

And can I make a recommendation? The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson. Light years better than The Devil Wears Prada.
