    I expected more than this

    Don't waste your time on this one. The story is way to predictable and boring. I couldn't stand how whiny the main character was. I really had to push myself to even finish this one. The writing is also very immature, this book really could have used a good editor.

    Great book! Hard to put down!

    I am a big fan of Lauren Weisberger and after reading 'The Devil Wears Prada' I bought this book as soon as it came out. I loved Bette and Weisberger's depiction of the NYC PR world was so much fun to read about. I can't wait to read her next book!

    Possibly Worst Book Ever Written

    I enjoyed 'The Devil...' it was short and fun, not brilliant writing but moved quick and on point. 'Everyone' was simply awful, it was so awful, that I finished the entire book in some strange fascination, like watching a really bad made for TV movie. The characters were flat, the dialogue pointless and always trashy. The writing was ponderous, every scene explained in excruciating detail with characters lifting their hand or glancing aside or walking and standing, while stating a piece of dialogue that didn't move the story forward in any way. At points when a bit of humourous irony started to seep in and lighten the book, the author killed it by adding a three-paragraph long explanation about why it was ironic and how it contradicated a prior statement one-half or one-dozen pages ago. As if we were to stupid to get it. Worse the main character was unbeleivable and inconsistent. There is something snarky in a voice which is constantly trying to impress us with her brilliance and goodness and how much she dislikes the drugs/sex/falseness of the glitz scene, and then buys into it whole-heartedly. If she is so smart, why could she not figure out who the mystery gossip columnist is immediately upon her introduction, as the rest of did? If she is so smart, why doesn't she figure out Philip or Kelly or Eliza within two sentences of their introduction. If she is so good, one moment of loyalty or charity, just one, might have been nice. Even worse, her main love interest is hot primarily because he is hot-looking. So she doesn't like the shallow looks-oriented narcissists? Why does she fall for a hot boy toy? And sorry, the fact that he uses Lonely Planet as a guide book does not save him from being a gigolo. This may be the most awful book ever.

    More of the same

    I couldn¿t wait for Weiseberger¿s new book to come out. But I am amazingly disappointed. It¿s entirely too similar to The Devil Wears Prada. By the time I was half way through it, I knew exactly how everything would turn out, and disappointingly, I was right. Don¿t bother reading. Read The Devil Wears Prada instead. Actually, read it twice if you¿re jonesin¿ for some good trash. Everyone Worth Knowing isn¿t original. Isn¿t creative. Isn¿t funny. And isn¿t worth the read.

    The same thing again!

    This is basically a rehash of the devil wears prada. I reaaly enjoyed that book, but this is more of the same. And the story is not so seamless and well written. For example the character of Sammy is extremely unbelievable - he is a bouncer, then somebody's assistant, then something else, then a's like he has to be doing every possible thing that would cause him to meet the heroine the maximum number of times. The book club characters are pretty cursory, and the total story seems to survive on name-dropping and the prices of designer items. Well, maybe that was the idea....
