Jennifer Weiner can write funny passages There's the 80 something woman who uses her new computer to print fake parking permits The fussy pug that prefers elegant surroundings Maggie's attempt to get into the MTV VJ auditions I did grin a few times while reading this bookBut glimmers of situational humor aren't enough to overcome the bigger problems with this novel It's formulaic even for chick lit Two sisters don't get along one's chubby and bookish the other a wild party girl They live together for awhile then have a big falling out then go through a period of personal growth then once they've learned important life lessons they live happily ever after So it's exactly what you'd expect 500 pages seems like a long march towards the inevitable

SUMMARY ↠ In Her Shoes ´ From Jennifer Weiner comes a story of two sisters with nothing in common but a love for shoes learn they are alike than they thought possibleMeet Rose Feller a thirty year old high powered attorney with a secret passion for romance novels She has an exercise regime she's going to start next week and she dreams of a man who will sli To have nothing in common but a childhood tragedy DNA and the same size feet are about to learn that they're alike than they'd ever imagined Along the way they'll encounter a diverse cast of characters from a stepmother who's into recreational Botox to a disdainful pug with no name They'll borrow shoes and clothes and boyfriends and eventually make peace with their most intimate enemies each other. Maybe there was too much sex or scandal but I didn't find myself endeared to the characters The story and writing are alright about appreciating your sisters but the inconsistencies of character plot holes and shock value ruined it for me It did have good perspectives into the mind of the smart fat girl and the attractive stupid girl and how they clash Plus Weiner's formula for plot seem to follow to same consistent lines fat girl who is funny and smart incredulous twist of fate way too nice guy who loves the fat girl and happy love ending I didn't dislike the story it just wasn't my favorite

Some mild spoilers aheadTypically this isn't my kind of book and if the rating system allowed for half stars I would have accurately given it a 2 12 This is one of those it was the right book for the right time scenarios I had just finished reading Nineteen Eighty Four and Fahrenheit 451 and suffering a dystopian hangover needed something light that didn't involve too much thinking This certainly fit the bill From the get go we have a stereotypical plot two sisters one pretty but dumb and the other smart but plain who are insanely jealous of one another despite their bond However this stereotype exists because there is a component of jealousy in many same gender sibling relationships No matter how much the two love one another siblings often feel as though they are being compared to one another by parents family friends society at large and examined for deficiencies that become obvious when compared against their genetic foil The smart one always wants to be pretty; the pretty one always wants to be smart The athletic one secretly wants to be a book nerd; the book nerd always wants to be able to dunk a basketball The one with curly hair always wants straight hair; the one with straight hair longs for curly locks We end up envying precisely what the other hates or loathes in himself or herself Maggie and Rose are no exception There's some rich material to work with here and Weiner does realistically portray the root causes of the sisters' envy for one another She also takes some chances further complicating their relationship is their mother whose mental illness leads to her death while the girls are still young; the beautiful Maggie suffers from a debilitating learning disability that effectively limits her chances at success in the entertainment industry she can't read the teleprompter during an MTV audition that she would have otherwise had in the bag; Maggie betrays Rose's trust to such a magnitude that their relationship may be beyond repair no one can hurt you like a sister and Weiner takes advantage of the opportunity to challenge the sisters' relationship Oh and thank heavens she didn't take the route of making the overweight Rose thin by the endHaving said all of that there were certainly some things I did not love There's a subplot involving the long lost maternal grandmother that slowed down the narrative for me Also Maggie and Rose just weren't likable characters These are not two women I would ever want to know in real life They're self involved and often petty I'm also not buying that Rose uit her job to become a dog walker nor that Maggie lives in the Princeton library and miraculously becomes a literary genius by the novel's end Maggie's reading every great literary classic she can get her hands on and spouting poetry like a water fountain I'm not saying that someone with a learning disability is incapable of doing this only that Weiner never plausibly made me believe Maggie was capable of doing this If there was one perk of the inclusion of Maggie's reading of One Art by Elizabeth Bishop i carry your heart with mei carry it in by E E Cummings and several classic literary texts it's that it reminded me that there are certainly better books out there and even though Weiner's work was somewhat humorous and mildly entertaining maybe my time would be better served reading some of those Cross posted at This Insignificant Cinder
