    Books full of clich s easy read but it gets old quick At parts it seems as if the writer is somehow jelous of the life style of these supposed Greenwich moms.

    Read this in one day on my vacation It s a fun story where heroines in different stages of life take on a major injustice with humour and savvy However, the near constant body shaming and obsession with weight became very tired It made the main character seem flat as if the author couldn t come up with any other defining personality traits I honestly wouldn t recommend this book to any women who is struggling with her appearance and has had any sort of eating disorder.

    From the author of The Devil Wears Prada this is a fun chick lit, contemporary fiction of three thirty something women supporting each other and finding new ways to deal with kids, men and careers, all while facing down the big 4 0 When Life Gives You Lululemons got my summer reading groove on and I spent most of it chuckling or madly swiping.Karolina, a former model, married to a senator, soon to announce his run for President is arrested for drunk driving, while with her son and his friends however she isn t drunk Her world is turned upside down Shunned by her friends, torn from the child she loves, and the husband whom she thought loved her.Emily the former sassy assistant to the evil Miranda Priestly, is now in LA running her own business Miriam is Emily s good friend, a Harvard educated power house corporate attorney, who has had enough and wants to try her hand as a stay at home suburban motherhood with her three young kids but didn t realise the major adjustment it would entail such as making new friends and fitting in with head to toe every day Lululemon clad fellow mothers whose main occupation is vaginal reconstructive surgery and lots of day drinking Emily comes to visit to help Miriam only to find her friend Karolina in troubleThis book was fun captivating from start to finish In upscale Greenwich these three women come together, each struggling with something and make for a hoot of a story Lauren Weisberger has done it again

    You kind of know what to expect from the author of The Devil Wears Prada, and in that sense this book doesn t disappoint In this one, former Polish supermodel Karolina is married to a junior Democrat senator and the happy stepmother of 12 yo Harry until one day when driving Harry s friends home she s stopped by police, arrested and thrown in the slammer overnight for drunk driving But she wasn t drunk The whole thing was a setup and the question is why and how Enter her longtime friend Miriam, who after a successful NY legal career lives in the suburbs being a mum, which takes than a small amount of adjustment Enter 2 Emily, a friend of Miriam s Emily is a great character sassy, bitchy, very upfront She s one of those people who handle the image of showbizz types, and is determinedly childless, whereas Karolina has been having IVF for years without success.Karolina s husband, far from being supportive, seems keen to distance himself from his wife, so naturally Emily and Miriam step in to buoy her up, rescue her reputation and sleuth their way to a satisfactory conclusion Emily decrees that Karolina s best course of action is to take the accusations of alcoholism on the chin and disappear for a while, hinting at rehab Given the irregularities surrounding the arrest, this seems a weak plot point Given the wealth and power available, surely it would have made better sense to uncover the police corruption and who organised it This does eventually happen Anyhoo we get a portrait of wealthy suburban folks where the women are super glamorous thanks to lots of surgery and have to be constantly on the lookout for cheating husbands, where birthday parties for five year olds are completely over the top extravaganzas that would feed a small country and where no expense or drugs are spared on neighbourhood parties While we might get a frisson from these insights into the lives and accoutrements of the shallowly wealthy, you have to wonder what strange planet this is While formerly middle class Syrians are escaping their war torn country in rubber boats, there are doctors busily stitching vaginas to suit the dimensions of a husbandly penis.While Karolina s husband is painted all black, the husbands of Miriam and Emily whose work is never delineated are painted loyal and caring in a way that makes them unreal The scary Miranda Priestly makes an entrance and is instrumental in seeing the senator get his comeuppance It s a feisty, fun, voyeuristic read if you can overlook a certain thinness in characterisation and plot and if nothing else, will make you glad you re not one of those people.

    Meh, I really hated most of the characters in the book and had forgotten their backstories since thier Devil wears Prada days.

  6. Birdman Birdman says:

    Awful Poorly written, ridiculous plot, one dimensional characters Very dated views despite the author s attempt to name check current events in a desperate attempt to seem relevant I bought this as a fun holiday read Total waste of time and money.

  7. Marlene Bacher Marlene Bacher says:

    I like it a lot Well written I read it on only two days Always liked this author and look forward to from her.

  8. Karin Judkins Karin Judkins says:

    I wasn t expecting anything deep, having previously read The Devil Wears Prada Lululemons is what you would expect lots of fun, very readable, but one book like this every two or three years is enough

    Great book well written, keeps your attention frontman start to finish Could not put it down.

  10. Amanda G Amanda G says:

    The book is a fun read At times it did get a bit confusing jumping between the characters Bringing back Devil Wears Pravda characters was so much fun The ending for me missed something and left me a little dissatisfied.

  11. processes-infrastructure.co Customer processes-infrastructure.co Customer says:

    This was an enjoyable, light hearted beach read on vacation I didn t realize initially that this is a 2nd follow up book to Devil Wears Prada , featuring several of the main characters from the original story, in addition to new characters, in a whole new setting and storyline.

  12. Helly Helly says:

    Mir hat das Buch super gefallen, witzig, etwas bissig und voller Frauenpower mit einer spannenden und gef hlvollen Story.

  13. Kinette Kinette says:

    The story in itself wasn t extremely bad, but the ideas it conveys are sick Made me feel very bad about myself, as I am not meager, rich or popular, and as I am over 20 it seems according to that book yhat I am too old to be, attractive.

  14. processes-infrastructure.co Customer processes-infrastructure.co Customer says:

    Not worth the money I donated the book to my local thrift shop, I couldn t even make it through the first chapter Shipping was fast and the condition of the book was excellent, but the book itself terrible.
