Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 2/18/2014

    " Fast Chick Lit. Good for beach reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 2/9/2014

    " It was likable but not earth shatteringly good. I really enjoyed the main character, Magnolia Gold. She was not too over the top but more interesting than a too down to earth character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kerry | 2/8/2014

    " This was looooong. I was glad when it ended. It was a good story, but it developed slowly and did not have quite as many plot twists as a book this length should have. Hard to recommend.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/14/2014

    " This was a fun book. Reminded me a lot of Devil wears Prada. I didn't know before I read it that McCalls was no longer McCalls and the author's history. Kinda makes sense now. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shelly Tourbier | 1/11/2014

    " So far I'm not too impressed by this book. I'm finding it hard to get into. I'm only on chapter 4, but I'm finding that I'm not very much interested in the main character and what happens to her. I'm hoping that I can stick this out a little and hopefully I'll change my mind. At this rate however, I can't see myself finishing this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/3/2014

    " Very well written and a good read. I kept staying up late to finish each chapter!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margot | 12/29/2013

    " It was interesting to read a book written by an insider about the magazine publishing biz, but overall I felt like the narrative and plot were all over the place and not in a good way. I really just wanted to finish it to know how the author could possibly wrap up all the loose ends she kept unraveling throughout the book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melinda | 12/29/2013

    " I couldn't even finish this, yuck. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/23/2013

    " As I began reading I quickly made the connections to the real life story this work of fiction is based on and initially it drew me in. The plot got a little dull towards the end though. If you are a fan of Rosie, was a fan of McCall's Magazine, or in the publishing business you'd enjoy this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 12/20/2013

    " I brought this book with me on a trip and although it was interesting, I didn't care enough about what happened in the 2nd half of the book so I stopped reading it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peg | 12/2/2013

    " If you liked "Devil Wears Prada". Funny. Get's a little long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 julia | 11/19/2013

    " Fun and interesting. the woman who wrote this was editor of mccall's when rosie took over. similar to devil wears prada... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 10/27/2013

    " If you liked Devil Wears Prada then you will like Little Pink Slips. Its hard for me to believe that people live and act like that but I'm sure they do. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 A'ndrea | 10/20/2013

    " I didn't even finish it, boring! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Htraci | 5/3/2013

    " Interesting, high flying New York magazine lifestyle. Kind of felt like "The Devil Wears Prada" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Lessard | 5/3/2013

    " Very cute! I liked it better than The Devil Wears Prada, but it definitely had some cheesy and corny parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie Morse | 3/25/2013

    " An easy read...great for summer or the beach. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carac | 12/8/2012

    " So cute! the next book for anyone who liked The Devil Wears Prada. Smart and Entertaining "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 10/10/2012

    " Read this one b4 Molly Marx. This is a little too chick-lit for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 10/5/2012

    " A neat insider view of what goes on in the world of magazine publishing. Evidently a real cut-throat environment. Good light reading when you need something to take your mind "away" and not tax yourself too much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gerald | 9/28/2012

    " The Contrast of the "Devils wear Prada" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 8/30/2012

    " Isn't the usual chick book about a NYC working woman. If you like the media or magazines, it's worth reading. While you're reading, try to decide what magazine/celebrity the story is loosely based on! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 6/17/2012

    " Fluff read....good ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 2/26/2012

    " ANother fun read . . . especially once I read the author's blurb at the back of the book and realized that this was based (at leasat somewhat) on her experience while at McCalls Magazine. Laugh out loud funny at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Missy | 2/2/2012

    " Started off slow in the beginning but ended up being a great book. Will definitely look for more books by this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 1/9/2012

    " I picked up this book after the author was interviewed on a morning talk show. The only star of this book was the Anna Nicole-like movie star turned magazine maven. Not the best, but not completely terrible either. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lydia | 7/7/2011

    " Not as good as I had hoped...was a bit reluctant to read her next book, The Late Lamented Molly Marx, but fortunately that one was better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 5/24/2011

    " Think Devil Wears Prada but backwards. You end of rooting for the the editor who although she is in charge most of the time she gets railroaded by the company CEO and a celebrity personality. Enjoyed the pace and remembered why I love chic lit "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 2/2/2011

    " It was a better listen than read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Jo | 10/20/2010

    " It was a cute book and a nice switch from some heavy topics i've been reading about lately. I always think it's fun to read about characters who live or work in Manhattan and I expect a certain level of superficial-ness.

    I really liked Magnolia and would read Sally's other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lara | 10/7/2010

    " Ok, didn't keep my attention as much as I would have liked. "

    " Little Pink Slips by Sally Koslow was an amusing read; however, sometimes her prose felt stilted. "
