Everyone Worth Knowing is written by Lauren Weisberger, author of the well-known novel and movie The Devil Wears Prada. I find it interesting, looking into reviews after reading, to come across a lot of negative reviews that Everyone Worth Knowing was formulaic and disappointing for many readers, including Weisberger fans. I enjoyed it. Yes, it’s another story of cutthroat, high-end living in Manhattan with the lifestyles of the rich and famous throughout, which is totally unrelatable for me, but that’s also part of the appeal. It’s complete and utter fantasy to me. A part of me accepts that there likely are people who live such lifestyles out there even if it’s completely unfathomable to me. Everyone Worth Knowing is hands-down chick lit but it’s fun, light and easy reading. It makes for a refreshing break from more challenging reads.
I divide all readers into two classes: Those who read to remember and those who read to forget.
