    VAPID

    Sally Koslow, the author and former editor-in-chief of McCall's, is no Helen Gurley Brown.
    Her fictional persona, Magnolia Goldfarb, is as vapid as her dying magazine was at the end.
    For a book, Pink Slips, is rather mediocre, but if you read it as you would watch a silly chick flick, it might be passable.

    This book was so well written, I couldn't put it down. I finished the book in a matter of days and I usually get bored after the first couple of chapters. Little Pink Slips should def. be put on the top of your list. Get it now, you won't be sorry. If you liked Devil Wears Prada, you will love this book even more. I plan on reading it again.

    AMUSING AND ANNOYING

    Former McCall's editor has written a novel that is as annoying as it is amusing. I should put this novel in my 'guilty pleasures' list. It's an engrossing and juicy story about a women's magazine. The first part of the book is simply fascinating but the last part becomes too syrupy and the heroine, from being sympathetic becomes right down insufferable. Sally Koslow's alter ego, Magnolia Gold, is too irresistible, too wonderful, too everything and with that she loses her previous charm. Still, it is one good fun reading. Like most women's mags, it is amusing and annoying in equal parts.

    The perfect book to go with your glass of wine and bon-bons!

    Ladies, you will rue the moment you are forced to put this gem down, as I did when I had to go pick up my kids from school! I was completely enthralled from the first page behind-the-scenes look at a NYC Chanel sample sale, devoured the details about life in the magazine world, and more tellingly fell immediately in love with the quirky, slightly neurotic, totally likeable, done-wrong-by Magnolia. LPS is so much more than a voyeristic look into the shambles of a once strong magazine (think McCall's) after a loud-mouth celebrity (you know who) and the magazine's publishers decided to re-vamp the beloved mag in the image of said celeb. Sure, it's fun to wonder about which details in the book came from Koslow's experience as the wrongly ousted editor in the McCall's/Rosie debacle but what's more fun is becoming completely enraptured in this story's characters and their confidently shaky walks through the world of magazine publishing and relationships, of the friend and spouse kind, that will leave you with a new favortie author to add to your list. Koslow's writing style is like chick lit having gone to an esteemed Ivy league school - her wit is charming, her prose simply perfect, all making for a biting, totally engrossing read. This one will be on the best-seller lists and will leave you wanting to know when Koslow's next novel will hit the stands!

    A truly fun read

    It was like listening in to a funny conversation about the magazine industry. Fast paced, funny and absorbing. Much better than TV.
