Review: Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes | Books | The Guardian
Had it been written better or more precise without abbreviations, etc it wouldn’t have had that same personal quality. Thank eykes for your feedback. Okay so going into this book, I didn’t have many expectations, mainly that I wanted a nice and fluffy, funny feel good story.
Nothing appealing about their thoughts, lives or personalities.
Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes
It was another easy book because the story was fun and i enjoyed her descriptive details. The name-dropping is relentlessly distracting, like some kind of nervous tic; practically every sentence is accessorised with a deft reference to somewhere or something awfully fashionable and terribly New York. Jul 05, Barbara Berry rated it liked it. I’m not sure why I even read this in the first place. I love a kitten heel and a cashmere cardy as much as the next girl, but after I’d finished reading Bergdorf Blondes, I was determined to wear Birkenstocks and dirndl for the rest of my life.
This is the dumbest, most shallow book ever. Since the friendship is gone, the protagonist decides to see Charlie again that night, as he had invited her to return for dinner. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. Occasionally, after a fabulous but depressing series of reads about, say the Holocaust reallyI look for a guilty pleasure that makes me laugh, and not think.
Then again if you didn’t have a career or any responsibility, wouldn’t you? She ends up deciding to return to England, only for her car to break down partway to her parent’s house.
This causes the protagonist to realize that Charlie had never intended to be dishonest and she eventually meets up with him at his home, where they reconcile and officially become a couple. Product details Mass Market Paperback: Not only did I find myself laughing out loud at quite a few times, but this novel was warm, and it didn’t feel as serious as ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ and ‘Sex and the City’. There, she meets a Hot Italian Prince, but it turns out he has a wife and children.
The two eventually end up running into each other at a hotel one night after the protagonist’s apartment is robbed.
Despite her novel’s much-vaunted ‘effervescence’ honestly, BB has put the PR department at Viking into overdrivemight this not have been Sykes’s intention? The writing style is less than mediocre and it was a total waste of the 3 hours that seemed more like an eternity that i spent reading it.
The book chosen was serious literature about cannibalism at sea. I can’t figure a work like that out, and I’m not even sure such a word excists.
This is one of my least favourite books of this genre at least of all time, to the point of being almost unreadable.

Jun 09, Tara rated it did not like it. Moi is good at this, bagging herself a Hot Young Photographer at her pal Muffy’s charity ball. Sykes is a clever wordsmith, but the meat of this book leaves much to be desired Don’t get me wrong, I was a suicide counselor for ten years and I more than anybody understand how serious suicide is, but this book made it so completely ridiculous it made the entire book make sense.
I felt like it was the biggest piece of nonsense garbage I had ever picked up and I was teetering on moving on Moi, then, goes to Brazil, she goes to the Amazon, she goes to Rio the clitorisand, most dismayingly to Impanema.
Have blondes ever been so dumb?
Turns out Charlie is the Earl. The bergdogf part I specifically remember is calling a certain sexual act ‘getting tiramisu’ I will leave it up to you to discern blondds that means and texting a friend that Moi is getting said act, then said act ending abruptly when actor discovered what actee is up to.
You’ll be introduced to Moi’s posse: If you have a sweet tooth for Manhattan, Fashion, Park Avenue and everything in between, you’re in for a treat. I think, surprisingly, what had me riveted was the way the book was written.
But it’s hard to care about the airhead-ed characters. It’s well worth a read for all the chick lit lovers out there, sort of like a grown up version of Gossip Girl.
Both books talk about the famous editor, but the treatment in each book is completely different. Fourth book read in my “gal about town” novels in NYC.
I tried to look at it as a tongue in cheek blondse, but there really wasn’t anything remotely funny about it. These women’s lives are not to be envied at all.
Just a quick piece of advice: The other famous book is, of course, “The Devil Wears Prada”. Review was originally posted on Alexa Loves Books Bergdorf Blondes was a pleasant chick lit read that combined three of my favorite things – New York City, traveling to various exotic locations including England and a relatable protagonist who enjoyed shopping, beauty rituals and writing. I couldn’t stop once I started. Quotes from Bergdorf Blondes.
