5.0 out of 5 stars Business School... April 26 2005
By Melissa
After having read Fishbowl I was looking forward to finding another book by this author. I read the first chapters while sitting in a bookstore waiting for my pictures to be developed... I was so captivated by the characters and the situations that I returned a few days later to buy it.
Sarah sheds light on various people and situation that you will run into at business school: from the ones who don't know why they are truly there to the serious students. I do wish that business school could be more a social event like this book.
Warning: this book will be read within a few sittings because it is so well written and witty. I truly look forward to reading more of her books in the near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Mrs. Mlynowski..... Sept. 29 2004
By Chick-lit fan - Published on
If you enjoyed Sarah Mlynowski's other books, or chick-lit in general, go grab this one. It's hilarious, and as she did in Fishbowl, the author seamlessly goes from one character's point of view to another. I especially appreciated this as a business school student- sometimes it was as if she were talking about my own school!

The story centers on four characters living in the same co-ed dorm, attending a prestigious (fictional) business school. We have Jaime, a pudgy, girl-crazy but very nice guy, Layla, a beautiful, ultra-smart and super-motivated Manhattanite, Russ, a Canadian guy torn between his girl back home and finding something new, and Kimmy, a pretty Jewish girl who falls hard for Russ and is not sure what she wants out of school- other than a boyfriend.

The story follow through the first year, following crushes, relationships, and some pretty big deceptions. But the characters are all likeable and flawed, which is something that has made Mlynowski's books so good in the past. This is better than average chick-lit, not just a single-girl-in-the-city story, but a story of four people and the deep bonds they form while living in a co-ed down (nicknamed "The Zoo"). If you like the funny, wittier writers in the chick-lit genre, this is right up your alley. Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed this book alot. It's interesting. I love how there's all different characters telling stories from their points of view. It's just a fun book and you get a lot of laughs from it. After reading this book, I explored other books by this author. I think most people will enjoy this book. I do recommend it.

By J. Goodman - Published on
This was my first book I've read from Mlynowski, and I can't wait to read her others. There was great character development, discriptions, chemistry and an original plot. I am currently an undergrad business student with hopes to also receive an MBA. I could relate to book, situation and characters!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sarah Mlynowski is the ruler of chick lit! Aug. 29 2005
By AmyK - Published on
I looooove this author and I looooove this book. It has a tight interwoven plot line that is at times laugh out-loud funny and at other times even a little touching (okay, okay I cried). I really, really admire the way Mlynowski writes. Her stories are BY FAR the best chick lit books that I've read, and I read a lot of chick lit. I liked the way the plot had so much going on, and by the end I felt satisfied that everything was resolved/addressed so that it felt like a complete and realistic book. Oh and did I mention how FUNNY she is? I also highly recommend MILKRUN and FISHBOWL. Great book!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Jan. 12 2007
By Venus - Published on
This book is great: as opposed to one person narratives the story here is told from the point of view of all four of the three main characters. This alone makes this book a lot more interesting than a lot of the other books in this genre.

The story is about four students, all at their late twenty's, and takes place in a business school.

One of the characters is Kimmy, who ends up having a one night stand with Jamie on the first day of school. Later she gets a crush on Russ, who she starts having an affair with, but he leaves her to get back with his ex-girlfriend Sharon who is pregnant with his child. It is good to see Kimmy gaining self esteem in the end, getting good grades and a great summer job in New York, plus Layla lets her stay in her gorgeous apartment for free.

Well, Layla takes school very seriously and found the perfect good on paper type of boyfriend while checking applications for the school. Of course it turns out that in real live he isn't all that great, and Layla ends up dating Jamie.

Never superficial or shallow, funny, exciting, and romantic, everything a girl can ask for - I loved it, and will check out other of the authors' books. (The only complaint I have is that the coed dorms including bathrooms for business school students seem way unrealistic and out of place, but I was willing to look over this detail)
