I admire Plum Sykes for writing a debut novel about the world she is familiar with, even though I couldn't help feeling that the book was based on events so true that the book actually lost its flavor; in brief, there was potential for a good book here. I don't mind reading about the world of PJs and thirteen-day blondes, since I don't have to relate to a character's lifestyle to enjoy a novel. Nonetheless, what undermined "Bergdorf Blondes" was the lack of plot and structure, and distracting name dropping. As a matter of fact, the writing style was a little too slang and unecessarily posh for my taste. Luckily, I speak French so that helped to keep the flow as I read. I did enjoy learning the acronyms, but that's about it. The book jacket is way cute too. As an avid reader, I just found that the characters lacked dephth. Some people such as the characters in this book are that shallow, fact of life, but "Bergdorf Blondes" was rife with them. I don't mind predictable plots to be honest, because I generally tend to like happy endings, well at least for one of the characters, but still, Moi didn't do it for me. I regret having bought this book and do not really recommend it.
