Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger
May 25, Jennifer Johnson rated it did not like evwryone. Though the author broke her spine over convincing us how Bette, our protagonist, adjusted to the world of PR, it was obvious she had no idea what the hell she was doing nor how to deal with the complications.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Who wouldn’t want a job that allows one to party for a living? The cover art in the Netherlands is also very similar to the movie’s poster.
The bottom line for me is that the book functions well as a satire of the fact that human beings value connections with other humans. I have no specific knowledge of this author’s life, but weisbwrger is no suspense in this story.
It’s just a standard fictional book about random people in …more I have no specific knowledge of this author’s life, but there is no suspense in this story. You know what’s going to happen, you are very meh about it but you want to see them make it to the end. Despite the overabundant name- and brand-dropping, this is a solid sophomore novel from Weisberger The Devil Wears Pradawho gives us a smart, complex character to root for in Bette.
The interplay of the conflicting demands of job, friends, family, and self is more nuanced. The sometimes negative feedback given to “chic lit” novels is understandable at times, yet I feel that Weisberger’s characters in “Everyone Worth Knowing” are written in an ordinary enough way that readers are able to more easily relate to them. Then Bette meets Kelly, head of Manhattan’s hottest PR firm, and suddenly she has a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and be seen inside the VIP rooms of the city’s most exclusive nightclubs.
She was joined four years later by sister Dana, a.
Sammy declares that it was actually Will and Simon who were the investors in the restaurant did I mention Will was gay and his partner to be Simon? Sadly, unfortunately, Everyone Worth Knowing doesn’t live up to its premise’s potential.
Everyone Worth Knowing – Wikipedia
Weisberger’s writing in this novel taught me that it is wortth to simply tell an average story that readers will enjoy even if it may not be considered a literary masterpiece. This book is ok, full of weird contradictions and missed opportunities that make it seem like it was never or only very vaguely woth after a first draft, or maybe written by an assistant.

Nov 29, Sarah Workaday Reads rated owrth liked it Shelves: For one, everyine is more sympathy for all the characters. Offended Republicans may choose to substitute with photo of current Congressional “leadership. This book is not worth reading.
Finally, at the Playboy party, she seems to figure everything out, and still cowers away from any controversy. Weisberger’s weiserger novel received generally unfavorable reviews. Yes, I’m looking at you Penelope, you were 8 years involved with the guy who’d rather spend every goddamn night of the week drinking with some unimportant acquaintances than with you. I know it is knpwing and I am guilty myself for not paying as much attention to my friends as I probably should due to school and everything else; but you don’t just forget your uncle’s birthday and not remember it until he reminds you weeks later.
Tell us what you like, so we can send you books you’ll love. Text messaging was new and you got that first text and weren’t even sure ho I really hope the author stops writing books soon so I can stop reading them. Refresh and try again. I recommend reading this if you have a lazy Sunday to kill.
Everyone Worth Knowing
She works at a banking company, but hates it so much she up and quits Her uncle Will is a tabloid worker and makes a few calls to his old assistant Kellie who just happens to own her own party company. It was shallow and so very dull. My first attempt from her bookshelf was deplorable, but I liked The Devil Wears Prada film, so I decided to give the genre a second try. But he, too, is tied to a wealthy socialite, and dreams of escaping the high life to open a small restaurant.
I do remember I didn’t really care for it but found some parts amusing. Okay, this is what I get for adding this to my “to weisbergdr list” and then waiting eight evedyone to read it. Thank god I only got this book from the library and didn’t waste any actual money! If nothing would be said about this matter if eveyone ever came to light then why egeryone Philip bother to do all of that theater play? To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
