Imogen is a 42-year-old magazine editor who, upon returning from medical leave, learns she’s been usurped. Eve is a techy – determined to take the magazine into the online future. Imogen is startled and unsure. Eve is grasping and petty. All of this wrapped within the packaging of fashion. As i said – i should have loved this book.
But i’m neither as old as Imogen nor as young as Eve. I fall into a weird middle-ground that made them both seem distant and foggy. My inability to truly see either character put the ole kibosh on any kind of enjoyment.
All of this said – i don’t want to dissuade anyone from reading this book. Check out other reviews. Give the book a try. If you’re older, younger, more fashionable or techier you may have a lot of fun with this one.
