Share This With Friends

Chasing Harry Winston is the story of three college girlfriends in New York on the eve of a big event: their thirtieth birthdays. Emmy has recently been dumped by her long-time boyfriend and takes her friends up on a dare to be more risqué. Leigh works her dream job as a senior book editor and is engaged to the perfect man, yet she is searching for true happiness. Adriana is the spoiled daughter of a famous supermodel whose life appears ideal but who knows that her looks won't win her the world forever and seeks a purpose to her existence. They all decide that within one year, each will drastically change their life. Weisberger intertwines each woman's quest for love, life, and happiness into an emotional novel that speaks to the heart and allows us into the world of young, hip New Yorkers. I had very high expectations when I began this novel because I adored Weisberger's book, The Devil Wears Prada, but I honestly was rather disappointed. While this novel does have all the glitz and glamour, not all the characters are well developed. Emmy and Leigh are very believable women. I could relate to them, enjoy discovering their personalities and joining them on their adventures. Adrianna, on the other hand, seems to be one-dimensional. Her looks are written about in excess. The novel was also a little cruder than I anticipated. Even though it won't be standard reading for a literary class, Chasing Harry Winston makes for a pleasant beach read. The prose is engaging, the characters amusing, and the plot interesting. It allows the reader to become lost for a few blissful hours in a world far different from the one most of us live in. This novel is good for a lighthearted read. *Book cover nicely wrapped* **More titles available in bio** -- 1 for $5 -- 3 for $10 #UOBPayNow **Cash on delivery**
