Erica Kennedy Ú 3 summary Feminista review ´ 3 Strong that she plays keep away with men But now that she’s hitting her midthirties she wants one Badly For her birthday Sydney’s sister ambushes her with the services of Mitzi Berman 40000 a shot Manhattan matchmaker extraordinaire Mitzi also has her eyes on Max Cooper the scion of Harvey’s department store the chicest place to shop in America And nothin. i really didn t get this book another from the library thank god not that i have ever been known to drop money on chick lit i think it was supposed to kind of be a parody of both chick lit chic lit but it s hard to tell because it concluded like every other book of the genre i was drawn in by the fact that feminist was in the title i was definitely intrigued by the fact that main protagonist sydney is a woman of color there is a real death of women of color protagonists in chick lit i was hoping for something kind of subversive in terms of gender race class i think that s what the author was going for butit fell flat for me in a pretty big way i have a conflicted relationship with chick lit to begin with i think a lot of books are marketed as chick lit because they are by female authors feature women as main characters these women are doing things like dating trying to balance personal lives professional lives remember how curtis sittenfeld s publishers tried to market her as chick lit for a while yeah but i meanthis was really just a romance novel it was weirdsydney is a well paid journalist for the biggest celebrity magazine in new york city cachet she works maybe twenty hours a week because as it turns out she was only offered a contract because cachet was about to be exposed as having pretty much no women of color writers sydney can pretty much do anything she wants at work not worry about losing her job because she s just a token at the magazine she is aware of this she s taking advantage of it but sometimes she feels guiltyshe also has a rough time choosing boyfriends mostly she dates down market struggling artist types only for a few weeks or months at a time then she gets bored dumps them but she s 33 now she has decided it s time to settle down find a husbandbaby daddy she asks her sister to introduce her to some eligible bachelors so her sister hires mitzi berman professional matchmaker mitzi specializes in helping high powered wealthy men find wives she agrees to set sydney up with some men but sydney is supposed to follow mitzi s rules which include things like don t wear pants on a date make sure to wear make up act interested in what the man has to say etc she s kind of like a walking copy of cosmo magazine but i think the author wants us to think that there are hidden nuggets of feminist wisdom buried in what mitzi has to say mitzi is pretty insightful about pointing out the mistakes sydney makes that scare men away sydney has a tendency to emasculate men because she has such a chip on her shoulder about being a high powered independent woman she tells her first date not to objectify her after he says she looks nice apparently according to mitzi this was a HUGE mistake seemed fair enough to me i probably would have said the same thing yet i have an awesome boyfriend who doesn t seem to feel emasculated probably because he hasn t tied his entire self worth up in the concept of being a Man there was pretty much no narrative tension in this book at all because right after we are introduced to sydney we are introduced to max the son of harvey cooper who owns one of the biggest poshest luxury department stores in new york max is a classic rich kid prep school blowing his first trust fund check on a bentley loafing off traveling around the world having sex with models to whom he gives luxury handbags he s back in new york taking care of business at the store while his capable business minded sister is out on maternity leave the reader knows as soon as max is introduced that he sydney are going to end up together the 350 pages in between are just filler throwing sitcom esue barriers up between themwhen sydney max first meet sydney mistakenly assumes that max is the store s doorman in training you d think she d catch on after he manages to secure her a 70% discount on anything she wants in the store butwhatever she is attracted to him but she s trying to be serious about her love life won t let herself settle for a mere doorman but at the same time she rails against rich people like lulu merriwether an ex girlfriend of max s sydney doesn t know that socialiteauthor of a series of chic lit roman a clefs ghostwritten by max s assistant sydney actually hates lulu because lulu got sydney fired from a job waitressing at an upscale restaurant but sydney won t admit that sydney is a real piece of work it seems like she thinks that everything good that happens in her life is due to her own tenacity feminist lite perseverence ie anything a man can do i can do too anything bad that happens is someone else s fault it gets really old really fast max is attracted to sydney too why lets her believe he is a doorman he is worried that if he admits that he s a spoiled rich boy she ll hate him he becomes secret friends with sydney s parody of a gay confidante jeffrey jeffrey encourages max to continue to the charade get sydney to fall for him then break the truth to her all seems to be going well the two finally sleep together the next day sydney calls max in a rage because she thinks he gave her herpesthis is the point where the book lost me first of all you don t kiss an asymptomatic herpes carrier sprout a cold sore six hours later so sydney is a dumbass for that second of all she calls max pretty much just screams at him calling him names telling him he s a liar when he tries to tell her that he doesn t have herpes she goes so far as to call him a faggot my mental record player scratched the record at that point sydney supposedly has a whole bevy of gay male friends she turns to when her female friends run off to get married have babies at which point sydney cuts them out of her life is this girl a treasure or what but when she s pissed at a dude she calls him a faggot that s supposed to be in any way acceptable amusing or cute is the reader SUPPOSED to hate sydney hope she gets set on fire if i was max i would have ditched her then there but he sticks with it tries to win her back does not computesome ridiculous shit happens including sydney getting fired joining a commune huh sydney getting set up on a date with max s father giving him some tips on re designing the store at which point i knew she was going to end up working for the store in some capacity sydney thinking she s in love with a professional football player because he dwarfs her physically makes her feel girlish puke etc but of course sydney max end up together sydney becomes the creative director the department store mitzi the matchmaker marries max s father sydney max decide to put off having kids for a bit everyone lives happily ever afterwhat the fuck rebecca walker gave this book a glowing review i don t understand supposedly sydney is a feminist but i think they must mean it in only the most selfish shallow individualistic possible way max s infatuation with sydney reminded me a lot of edward s obsession with bella in the twilight books even though bella is wrong for him in pretty much every way he wants to eat her for crying out loud he seems something in her that makes him betray all his instincts continue to love her it s the oldest story in the book the most trite i d like to see a story where a woman is strong independent feels an attraction toward a man doesn t give an eff what he does or doesn t do for work he is attracted to her admires her independence he is not hung up on his masculinity they have a healthy relationship where no one throws around anti gay slurs when they think they have contracted herpes don t even get me started on the way sydney s stripper neighbor is portrayed the woman makes enough money to live next door to someone making 100000 in magazine publishing but she s a stripped so she s obviously trash right don t even get me started on the big reveal when sydney freaks out says a rich kid like max killed her father a 33 year old woman still working out her daddy issues what an awesome character except for not How to Kiss a Guy really didn t get this book another from the library thank god not that i have ever been known to drop money on chick lit i think it was supposed to kind of be a parody of both chick lit chic lit but it s hard to tell because it concluded like every other book of the genre i was drawn in by the fact that feminist was in the title i was definitely intrigued by the fact that main protagonist sydney is a woman of color there is a The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl real death of women of color protagonists in chick lit i was hoping for something kind of

Erica Kennedy Ú 3 summary Feminista review ´ 3 G could make either Sydney or Max Cooper run faster than Mitzi with her rules and her Brooklyn accent that is if they didn’t concede her a point or twoPeopled with vivid hilarious characters Feminista is fast moving fiction whose themes of independence image and the com pli cated relationship between the sexes in the working world recall the best of Rona Jaff. Admittedly I couldn t finish this book I got halfway through and was completely turned off by the characters Feminista was perhaps intended to be a critiue of chick lit but it practices the genre while looking down its nose at it A self proclaimed feminist protagonist Sydney objectifies and scathingly insults other female characters based on their appearance social status and the men with whom they associate And while claiming to deplore high society women Sydney moves among them in Prada and is thrilled to get a discount at the store where they shop The book is filled with these contradictions and it becomes difficult to discern where the main character or where the author stands
