As with her other books I enjoyed this one too. Interesting how her writing, characters and themes are very different book to book and they are still all good..in my opinion.

An excellent, well thought out story. The characters are unique and interesting. However, I wish I could have proofed this book before it came out. There are so many typos and mistakes I would be embarrassed if I were the author. Can't deny it though, I really enjoyed this book!!!

I thought it sounded good but it was bland and dry. It started out good but dies by 1/3 in. I was able to guess this plot by that time too so no real mystery. Even Nancy Drew gave us more as kids. Where are the good writers?

I picked this book up thinking it sounded interesting and wanted to try a new author. I was absolutely enthralled!! Ginsberg's writing style is great and the story is super! There will certainly be comparisons to Devil Wears Prada because it involves a brassy boss in the publishing world. Story takes place within the walls of a very busy literary agency. If you are a bibliophile , you will love this behind the scenes look into the cut throat world of publishing! I have now purchased all of Debra Ginsberg's books and I am shocked she is not on every best seller list yet! Great writer!

This book is realistic-fiction but by the way the main character, Angel Robertson,handels her experience and feeling that her life is in danger is quite like the stupid girl in the scary movies who isn't scared. Even though her life is clearly in danger. When angel had the feeling someone was in her hotel room and knew about her life she would have, like any other person, went to the police or told someone she trusted. But No! She convinced herself that she was just over reacting. Even though it was unrealistic that she kept ignoring the obvious threats that some anonymous writer was emailing her throughout the story. The ending and the beginning were far from disapointment. In the beginning Angle was taking a risk, taking a job, being independent despite the butterflies and fear which was very realistic. And the ending was supriseing and humerous, but I wont give that away. ~ColleenHellenYost

This story is an interesting new concept. Not a thriller but interesting enough to have me reading it an entire day (doesn't happen often with me). Great escape book and a great look into how you really do not know someone.

A fun, breezy read through the world of literary agents. I liked finding out just what goes on behind the scenes before a book makes it into print. The best part is the main character's surprise as she begins to realize that the newest submission is eerily following her own life!

I picked up this book because it was a recommendation at a local independent bookseller and was not disappointed. The characters are outstanding and the protagonist is endearing. It's a fun read that I was sorry had to end.

Having read all of Ms. Ginsberg's previous books, all memoirs. I was quite enchanted by her latest, her first foray into fiction. It's a suspense novel that is loaded with Ginsberg's trademark humor. She keeps the pace moving and the reader guessing, as Angel Robinson, a new employee at the Lucy Fiamma literary agency, begins reading a manuscript that eerily begins to reflect her own life. Angel likes what she initially reads of this rough manuscript, which comes in through the mail, and encourages the author G, short for Great American Novelist (as the authors pens himself), to continue submitting a few chapters at a time. As she reads more and more of the proposed book, she finds it closely resembling her own life. Ginsberg uses this novel within a novel to build the suspense. Is the author some disgruntled, rejected author out to get Angel, or is it someone in the office watching her too closely? The suspense builds as bad things begin to happen to G's protagonist. Is Angel in danger? How will it all end? The author keeps you on the edge of your seat and you'll love the insider's look at the how books get published and howl with laughter as you see society reflected in Ginsberg's very real look at the publishing industry.

I'm one of those readers who doesnt want too much information about a book before I read it. Many times just the title can convince me to give it a shot. That was what prompted me to purchase BLIND SUBMISSION. From the first page you are drawn into the world of publishing agents and its pages are filled with dynanmic characters and a story that draws you quickly from page to page. I am an avid mystery reader and I can't reccomend this book enough. I will anxiously be awaiting Ms. Ginsbergs next endeavor.
