“A winning, entertaining read . . . [Lauren Graham] has smartly mined just the right details from her own experience, infusing her work with crackling dialogue and observations about show business that ring funny and true. . . . Just like the screenwriters of the best romantic comedies, she has taken elements of the familiar and spun them into a novel that’s heartfelt, hilarious and, hopefully, just the first example of what she can do with the written word.”—The Washington Post
“A charmer of a first novel . . . [Graham] has an easy, unforced style and, when the situation calls for it, a keen sense of the ridiculous.”—The Wall Street Journal “With insight, care, and an abundance of humor . . . Graham demonstrates that her acting chops are not her only talent.”—Library Journal “Thoroughly charming.”—Entertainment Weekly “Sweet, funny, and full of heart . . . a dazzling debut.”—Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed and Where We Belong
“Warm and funny, charming and smart.”—Diane Keaton, New York Times bestselling author of Then Again
“Graham deftly captures what it’s like to be young, ambitious, and hopeful in New York City.”—Candace Bushnell, New York Times bestselling author of Sex and the City and The Carrie Diaries “Fresh and funny and full of zingers, Lauren Graham’s charming writing style instantly drew me in, but it was her relatable characters (complete with doodled date-book entries!), irresistible romantic twists, and delicious plot that kept me turning the pages until well past my bedtime.”—Meg Cabot, bestselling author of the Princess Diaries and Heather Wells Mystery series

I am a big Lauren Graham fan, so I was a bit scared to read this book in case her writing wasn't funny and quirky like she usually is on tv. Well, good news the book is very much like the Lauren Graham we love. Being the story inspired by the author's own journey to become an actress, it is not surprising that the main character, Franny, thinks like we would imagine Lauren thinking. What I love the most about the book is how Franny observe critically the business she wants to succeed in, never ceasing to be self depracating in a credible,relatable and funny way. The plot is your typical chick lit in which a girl wants to follow her dreams, but it is very honest, witty, hilarious and well written. Maybe it's the character non perfection and self depracation that makes her so relatable.
Il romanzo ha, come punto di forza, la scrittura frizzante e veloce della simpaticissima Lauren Graham. La protagonista è una forza della natura, ci porta attraverso la sua corsa a ostacoli per sfondare nel mondo dello spettacolo. Il soggetto, però, non è abbastanza profondo da risultare buono. Peccato, adoro Lauren Graham e mi sarei aspettata di più.
Consigliato, una lettura veloce e leggera sotto l'ombrellone.
