" Chasing Harry Winston", by Laura Weisberger

Anyone that reads chick-lit, Lauren Weisberger has to be on top of your list. She definitely shows a real talent in captivating her audience by drawing original and interesting sagas in the lives of her female characters.

This latest is centered on Leigh, Emma and Adriana, three single women in their late 20's living in Manhattan. The novel focuses on each individual as the girls self analyze themselves expressing their need for constant validation for their good looks and sex appeal. They are determined to catch eligible prospects at any cost. No holds barred.

This novel can't be taken too seriously; I found it to be a hoot at times, terribly funny. The characters are depicted in a very narcissistic way, superficial and immature, highlighting the worst of the female stereotypical characteristic in each of them.
The feminists may feel offended by some of the ways the women are perceived. I found their adventures hilarious.

This is a fast, an easy read, a real soap opera script one that may tickle your fancy...
