The Second Assistant: A Tale from the Bottom of the Hollywood Ladder

The Second Assistant: A Tale from the Bottom of the Hollywood Ladder - Clare Naylor, Mimi Hare I had a strange feeling with this book. It was fun, I giggled, and I read it real fast, but at times I didn't feel it. I don't know, I just didn't feel.But if we forget that for a moment. This is a book about Elizabeth who leaves the political world and gets a job as a second assistant at a big time agency. But it's a cut-throat world. The famous wants it all and their way, the bosses are mad and she feels lonely. But she does come close to a co-worker and a guy she meets. She fancies a producer, and she makes a fool of herself with another one. But as time goes by she grows to like this crazy world.I liked Lizzy even if things at times sure fell into her lap, she was lucky even if she was unlucky too. The guys sure seemed to like her too. But still, she was nice, but she sure could have been a bit less naive, I mean it is Hollywood.The people at the agency were just as I could have pictured them. Angry bosses that are never in, and pretty young assistants that did something.The love then, well first there is the producer crush, but he is a bit of a slut. There is the nice guy she meets at the coffee place, the sleazy guy she meets at a party, and the guy she fancies at a distant. Yes there is love, and I had my hopes for who she should end up withThe book gave me some laughs, because you know there will be comedy in a chick-lit book that takes place in LA. There was love, and backstabbing. A cute and funny book that I read a lazy Saturday.I just wished the ending could have been a bit more, we were left off so soon, but then there is a part 2.
