I know this is one of those books you’re not supposed to like because it’s so girly sykew fashion here shooes there. It is, in short, so vastly irritating to read that one feels positively itchy.

Thought it’d be a fun beach read.

Review: Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes | Books | The Guardian

Dec 27, Anna rated it really liked it. If you’re going to go into this book judging fictional characters for being superficial, then this book is probably not for you. I think it may have been because my sister lent it to me when I asked her if I could borrow a book on my trip to Milwaukee last summer. How can you not love that? She dislikes work you only do it to ensure a steady flow of freebiesgetting up before The writing style is less than mediocre and it was a total waste of the 3 hours that seemed more like an eternity that i spent reading it.

Observer review: Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes | Books | The Guardian

It talks a lot about fashion and friendship that revolves around everything material: At this point I saw the absurdity the author was shooting for and began to enjoy the book.

In all the book was completely pointless and irritating – from the characters to the plot – and a definite non-recommendation on my part.

The name-dropping is relentlessly distracting, like some kind of nervous tic; practically every sentence is accessorised with a deft reference to somewhere or something awfully fashionable and terribly New York.
