5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Mrs. Mlynowski..... Sept. 29 2004
By A Reader - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sarah Mlynowski is the ruler of chick lit! Aug. 29 2005
By AmyK - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Oct. 16 2004
By Tina Avon - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I hesitated when buying this book as I am not overly fond of a different person speaking in each chapter.

However, this became a very minor annoyance because this book is wonderful. I am not sure how the author manages to weave all these people together, but she does.

As far as chick lit goes, this is a notch above the rest and is even "intelligent and thought-provoking". The author manages to make me like all the characters, despite their obvious (and not so obvious) flaws.

Excellent purchase. Buy it.
