2.0 out of 5 stars Wanted to like this book but couldn't March 29 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
As many have said before, the characters in this book lack depth and the plot is beyond predictable. I found myself feeling indifferent, not really caring about what happens to the characters in this book. Save your money for a book you'll want to continue reading past the first five pages...

4.0 out of 5 stars Champagne bubble entertainment April 18 2007
Format:Paperback
I read this book, and the follow-up volume, "Debutante Divorcees" after I had read "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Everyone Worth Knowing" by Lauren Weisberger.

This is the lightest, frothiest example of the Chick Lit genre, and I enjoyed it and read it in about a day and a half. My only complaint: by the time I got to the end, I never, ever wanted to read or hear the phrase "going to Rio" ever again. Note to Ms. Sykes: a couple of times is cute; by the time you've said it 20 times, it just gets damned annoying.

For anyone who hasn't read it yet, I wouldn't be put off by customers' poor reviews. It obviously isn't meant to be great literature. Just devour it like the brain candy it is, and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! Oct. 28 2010
By M
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I absolutely adore this book. I think a lot of the people who gave it a bad review took it a little too literally and just didn't get it at all.

Yes, it's about glamorously spoiled park avenue princesses, but I assure you it's highly entertaining--it's not just shallow fluff. It's very witty and satirical. It's fun and full of name-dropping and luxury brands, but there's a real comedic genius behind it. I actually really liked the narrator, "Moi," and was basically laughing throughout this entire book (right up to the end). It also definitely has a plot, and actually, a lot of heart.

I've honestly never read a book like this (and I read a variety of books, most of which I have to admit, are chick-lit). It really stands on it's own. I just hope I like The Debutante Divorcee half as much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Witty, entertaining...a real escape Jan. 4 2008
Format:Paperback
I'm stunned at the bad reviews this novel is getting. This book grabbed me from the very first page and didn't let me put it down. It's witty, entertaining, a true escape into the troubled lives of the super rich and spoiled. I will concede to one flaw, and that's the lack of character development. Otherwise, it was a thoroughly enjoyable read.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a terrible read Aug. 10 2005
Format:Paperback
This has got to be one of the worst books I've read in a long time. There is no character development whatsoever and the main character is incredibly shallow. My advice is to stay far, far away from this book. I recommend reading Something Borrowed and Something Blue, both by Emily Giffin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising negative reviews Aug. 9 2005
By S.K.P
Format:Paperback
I was shocked to see the low rating on this book? When I picked it up I had not consulted any ratings in any sources (and I'm now grateful!), and I was pleasantly amused. It was pure brain candy! If you are looking for a fun summer read, (no brain bending twists or turns, but cheeky, and good for the beach )... you've found it here with Bergdorf Blondes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, A Great Fun Read! Jan. 28 2005
Format:Hardcover
Despite having hesitations about this book from reading past reviews, I was pleasantly surprised that I ended it loving this book! It's a great fun read, that kept me interested and entertained throughout. If you like shallow, light-hearted chick lit, then this is for you!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that great... Sept. 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Humorous, OK. I will give it that. AT TIMES. However, this book was a bit of a dissappointment for me. I heard a lot about the book, but was a bit timid to pay for it new because I thought it was a bit pricey. On a whim, I bought it at Heathrow airport in London to read on my long flight back to Canada....I actually finished it the day I got it. it is an easy read, but I thought the characters were a little uninteresting and the story line incredibly predictable and just not all that great. I would suggest the Shopoholic books instead, which are much funnier and more indepth.
