Slave to Fashion was an oversimplified novel of having it all in life a career, love, happiness , making a poor decision a fling , and getting it all back career, love, and happiness.The story progressed slowly through the first half And the main character, Katie, comes across as a materialistic, self serving, know it all It was not until the end of the story, that Katie becomes somewhat likeable as a character as she helps out the less fortunate. A surprisingly well written cautionary tale. Fashion college has taught Katie Castle everything she ever needed to know how to smoke cigarettes and drink how to flirt with gay men and straight women how to get into clubs without paying Possessed of a sharp eye and a stiletto tongue, Katie talks her way into the job of her dreams Working for chic designer Penny Moss, Katie snags not only a town house in London s Primrose Hill but also a cute fianc , Ludo, who happens to be Penny s son But one act of libidinal folly with the company delivery driver costs Katie everything job, boyfriend, flat, friends Will she be forced to move back with her sartorially challenged parents Or can she maneuver a return to fashion that somehow doesn t involve gasp retail Rebecca Campbell has invented a wisecracking heroine who ll keep you laughing right up to the last page Katie s misfortune will be your delight, as this irrepressible wit carpe diems herself into a set of adventures that once again propels her to the top Slave to Fashion marks the arrival of an uncommonly smart and very funny new writer From the Trade Paperback edition The Katie character ruined this story I couldn t like her She was close to everything I try not to be Didn t even feel that bad about her misfortunes Was hoping for a fun witty story but got racist, self righteous ignorance instead I would not recommend this book to anyone. It wasn t as bad as I thought. Cute fluff Enjoyable. This is a really good satire, both of the fashion world and of the whole Brit chick lit genre It s a simple story of the rise and fall of Katie Castle I loved the interaction between Katie and Peggy Moss in the first section of the book I admit that I found the first chapter or two slow, but by the time Katie and Peggy were in Paris, I was hooked I thought Katie was actually a well rounded character She wasn t a nice person, by any means, but I liked that about her she appealed to my da This is a really good satire, both of the fashion world and of the whole Brit chick lit genre It s a simple story of the rise and fall of Katie Castle I loved the interaction between Katie and Peggy Moss in the first section of the book I admit that I found the first chapter or two slow, but by the time Katie and Peggy were in Paris, I was hooked I thought Katie was actually a well rounded character She wasn t a nice person, by any means, but I liked that about her she appealed to my dark side Katie could say and do things that I d never dream of, so the book provided a good escape in that sense I also liked that she did have something of a conscience albeit not a well developed one , she did learn from her mistakes, and she had a degree of self awareness I found myself wanting to see her succeed.The first part of the book developed the relationships well enough that I genuinely felt bad for her mistake, and I wanted to see her win back the boyfriend Campbell manages to take a woman who is very different from most of the people who read the book, and yet make her someone we could relate to Who hasn t messed up royally in their lives She is able to find the insights and morals in the story There are no profoundly original truths written here it s all stuff we already know, on some level, but the reminders work It s got just enough depth to be interesting, but it s not so serious that it comes across as pretentious.The book wasn t absolutely perfect, of course I thought some things happened too quickly and too easily, like the exposure of what Katie did, and even her ability to get back what she lost I didn t like the ending it was all just too easy Some of the characters particularly the men were poorly developed But those things are just minor complaints that keep the book from gaining full fledged classic status It s still better, funnier, and smarter than a lot of books available today Worth a read WORST BOOK EVER WRITTEN..This is one terrible book I picked this one up because it semed like an easy read, and it is easy but it is so awful First I didn t like tha style of writing the aurthor used It was conversational like the character was standing infront of me having a conversation with but I was lost in the conversation Everytime I put the book I didn t remember what had happened the last time I read Truly a forgettable book even other books I didn t like I could remember the s WORST BOOK EVER WRITTEN..This is one terrible book I picked this one up because it semed like an easy read, and it is easy but it is so awful First I didn t like tha style of writing the aurthor used It was conversational like the character was standing infront of me having a conversation with but I was lost in the conversation Everytime I put the book I didn t remember what had happened the last time I read Truly a forgettable book even other books I didn t like I could remember the storyline This doesn t even get one star because it doesn t deserve it I orginally thought about picking somebooks by the author but after reading this one it will never pick read her again Slave to Fashion
