I read Weisberger’s first book and liked it well enough. This book does not stand the test of time. I do recommend it – especially for those laying poolside or sitting in 27B on their way to Santa Fe, for example. Apr 08, Christie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Bette’s pathological need to incur their disapproval i. I waited throughout the whole thing for them, you could at weisberber give me a good ending! I delayed it constantly, reading a page or two eventually.
The Best Books of Nov 20, Ivana rated it it was ok. Everyone Worth Knowing is a book which has been lying in a weusberger of my shelves for many years. And I got kind of annoyed when she quit her job on a whim, which seemed out of character for the cool, down-to-earth heroine she was trying to build. Looking for a fluffy, no-brains-required, everything-is-over-the-top-and-ridiculous weekend read?
I don’ Okay, this is what I get for adding this to my “to read list” and then waiting eight years to read it. Bette Robinson is a twentysomething Emory graduate who shunned weissberger parents’ hippie ideals in favor of a high-paying yet excruciatingly boring job at a prestigious investment bank. I think in teh future this weisberer might stand as a good example of these cultural touchstones and ways of being that largely vanished or became very uncool so soon afterward.
However, in the end it won with me because: Soon after Bette Robinson quits her horrendous Manhattan banking job like the impulsive girl she’s never been, the novelty of walking her four-pound dog around her unglamorous Murray Hill neighborhood wears as thin as the “What are you going to do with your life?
I’ve carted it around with me on evfryone trips, and I finally got to it on a recent trip to St. The plots of these two books are so similar. Thirty-five thousand names, actually, and we can get in touch with any of them at any time. The story takes place in the mids, probably in the Iraq War is referred to in passing, and the U. Girl finally realizes job isn’t worth it. The only redeeming quality is the book’s hero.
Everyone Evryone Knowing is Lauren Weisberger ‘s second novel. Then there’s Sammy, the cook-bouncer-aspiring restaurateur. And this is a yawn story anyway, very much like the author’s much more popular book The Devil Wears Prada, but not near at good.

She went from being a smart, capable, and independent woman to a foolish romantic who’s in love with a man who didn’t deserve her. This book delivers it all: It’s what we do.
Bette thinks Sammy is hot, Sammy thinks Bette is cute and that’s their epic love. Sep 14, Betsy VanSweden rated it really liked it.
Girl loses banking job, gets a job at a PR firm, gets into the party life and in the tabloids, kicking and screaming the whole way, gets a crush on a lowly bouncer, kisses bouncer, a Three’s Company misunderstanding happens, then bouncer and innocent girl who realizes she hates the backstabbing PR business, both run off into the sunset together. Just long ago enough to be nostalgic but so recent that it feels contemporary. Uncle Will is a shameless gay stereotype and basically has no other trait than being gay.
I have an office full of people whose job it is to know everyone worth knowing. I’d say that after years in the USA a typical reader would already have seen everything that’s in this book. Bette’s hippie parents, who are portrayed as a present-day high school student would probably portray hippies in a Beatles fan fiction. I really hope the author stops writing books soon so I can stop reading them.
Basically they have sex and vow to be together but because Sammy wants to be a chef and own his weisberyer company one day, he basically asks Bette to wait for him.
We meet Bette, a seemingly nice girl, and right off, I could tell she was a pushover. For instance Philip and his sexuality or Abby and what happened to her when she was found out to be Ellie insider?
Everyone Worth Knowing – Wikipedia
This is chick lit, but for someone who doesn’t really have a brain cell in their head at all. This novel contains none of the poor grammar or flimsy plot structures you would find in Sex and the City the novel – loved the series or The Nanny Diaries saw this movie last night and it was a hundred times better than the weak novel. Seeing it is about high fashion, partying, and basically the social scene of everything high society, the references to Lindsay Lohan, Playboy Bunnies, Paris Hilton’s sex tape, P.

Everyone Worth Knowing
Weisberger’s writing in this novel taught me that it is ok to wortg tell an average story that readers will enjoy even if it may not be considered a literary masterpiece.
At Parkland High School, Lauren participated in all sorts of projects, activities, and organizations for the sole purpose of padding her college application, although she did genuinely enjoy playing varsity tennis especially when the girl who should have played first singles incurred a season-ending injury and Lauren had no choice but to step in for the team.
And also, women everywhere in Weisberger’s world, luaren highly educated and qualified ones, want Fabulous jobs in fashion and entertainment The staunch homophobia, weeisberger only truly flaming homosexual characters and all effete men being secretly homosexual was what really turned me off from this book.
I’m actually quite appalled by this to be honest. But overall, the story l This book has been on my tbr for years, literally. But the most ridiculous part of this book was the fact that eferyone went along with every little plan her new job had for her. But he, too, is tied to a wealthy socialite, and dreams of escaping the high life to open a small restaurant.
Natasha Sansone I haven’t read it in a while, but I remember it has some adult scenes that aren’t very graphic. This book was weisbeerger from the start, it was the same typical “girl has lousy job, almost always a banking job Girl has family member that can hook her up with a “better” job, girl has no backbone whatsoever, ETC
