n143926Simon & Schuster slipped Lauren Weisberger’s Everyone Worth Knowing into the gift bags at Melinda-Mae Harlington‘s fashion show.

This book was amusing, but I did not find it satisfying. The story is not over the top enough to be camp or believable enough to identify with. The main character Bette drifts through the story without ambition or spunk. She is obviously wrong for PR from the beginning.

The author makes an effort to show a bit of the art of PR, but predictably, PR plays the villain. There are so many vivid characters and interesting conflicts in the world of public relations, I wish Weisberger had taken better advantage of the material.

P.S. The one really satisfying moment in this novel was the outing of an anonymous gossip blogger. :)
