    1. I remember liking The Devil Wears Prada when I read it a few years ago. So, finding myself in the airport and in need of a book for the plane I picked this one up, thinking it would be an OK chick flick. I usually don't have that high expectations from a chick flick, but this really disappointed me. To begin with, the plot is not that bad. But it is also predictable and the path things are going is is not hard to foresee from the first chapters. There's Brooke, a nutritionist and her rockstar wa [...]


    2. If you've read a book by Lauren Weisberger before, you know the basics of the experience. It will be set in New York; it will deal with the difficulty of balancing careers and personal lives. Her books also have a nice authoritative tone - you feel like you're getting real dish.Right now HBO is developing a miniseries about the history of Chateau Marmont. For those who haven't heard of it - I hadn't before Weisberger's LAST NIGHT AT CHATEAU MARMONT - it is a hotel that has been hosting celebriti [...]


    3. When I was asked to review Last Night at Chateau Marmont by Lauren Weisberger, I jumped at the chance. Who didn’t love The Devil Wears Prada? And I’m happy to report this book was just as great. The story follows happily married couple Julian and Brooke Alter. Brooke is working two jobs with the goal of starting her own nutrition business, and Julian is a struggling singer-songwriter hoping to hit it big. The couple’s world is rocked when Julian snags the attention of Hollywood big-wigs, a [...]


    4. Easy read. Solid idea, poor execution. The story focuses on Julian, a struggling musician and his ‘civilian’ wife, Brooke, who has supported him for years with her job as a nutritionist. Julian’s songs get noticed, he becomes a celebrity, and their marriage is tested by the rock and roll lifestyle.A big problem is that very little time is spent on Julian’s character development, or the development of their relationship at all. We don’t know him, get none of his perspective, and I reall [...]


    5. 2.5 starsBrooke Alter is married to Julian, an aspiring musician. While Julian is trying to get his career off the ground, Brooke is working two jobs and trying to keep everything afloat. Then suddenly, Julian gets the big break he has been waiting for, and almost overnight he shoots to fame and fortune.Brooke should be ecstatic, as it's all they have ever wanted, but she finds herself struggling with their time apart and being dissected by paparazzi at every turn. Will they be able to overcome [...]


    6. Heartbreak, headlines and Hermes – welcome to Brooke's new world…Brooke and Julian live a happy life in New York – she's the breadwinner working two jobs and he's the struggling musician husband. Then Julian is discovered by a Sony exec and becomes an overnight success – and their life changes for ever.I wasn't excited to read this after seeing the rating but I'm a Lauren Weisberger fan and being a fan means reading every book they have written and I'm glad I did. This book was surprisin [...]


    7. Imagine this: You get a call from your mom, telling you she has a surprise for you. And you start getting excited because surprises are rare at your age and you´re dying to find out what it is your mother has for you. Once your mother arrives all you want to do it rip her purse off her shoulder ( since you see nothing in her hands ) and search for your damn gift. But.you keep calm and wait patiently for your mother to hand it over. Your blood starts pumping and you all of the sudden start to sm [...]


    8. I loved "The Devil wears Prada". I liked "Everyone worth knowing". I have never came to the end of "Chasing Harry Winston", actually I have ended reading it after 1/4. "Last Night at Chateau Marmont" The first half of this book was pretty slow for me. Just later, almost at the end, the book started to interest me and I wanted to know whathappened next. Although it was very predictable as well. IMHO, Lauren didn't have an idea what to do with the characters and how to build the tension. Dissapoin [...]


    9. Average NYC couple Brooke and Julian get thrown into the gossip rags when Julian finally breaks through and makes it big as a musician. Will their marriage survive his fame? Will he change too much for her to endure? Will she be able to fend off the soul stealing trappings of celebrity enough to continue her very average job as a nutritionist???I loved Devil Wears Prada and Chasing Harry Winston and I thought this book was awful. Makes me sad. I don't buy the speed with which Julian becomes famo [...]


    10. I give this book 3 and a half stars. It wasn't a bad story but I just couldn't connect to the characters like I wanted to. This is another book that I normally wouldn't have picked up to read and the reason I did was because it was this month's book for my monthly book club. After reading some of the other reviews I gather that either most people loved it or hated it.


    11. The first half of this book was pretty slow for me. It wasn’t until the last 150 pages or so when I didn’t want to put it down because I wanted to see what happened next. I felt like the exposition/buildup was way more than necessary, but I guess it was good in that it developed the characters pretty well.I felt like (in my mind at least) there was a lot of buildup as to who was giving the tabs all their information/Brooke’s cell number. Because of that I kind of felt let down when you fou [...]


    12. ISBN: 978-1-4391-3661-4Publisher: Atria BooksRelease date: 8/17/2010Reviewed for acozyreaderscornerWonderfully Addicting!After five years of marriage Brook and Julian’s lives are catapulted into the spotlight of fame. Julian, a musician, catches his break and is quickly made into one of the most famous rock stars. Brooke, after working two jobs to help get Julian to this point, is in awe and amazement and couldn’t be more proud of her husband. Then the publicity hits, the constant travel sta [...]


    13. What I liked about this book:- The characters. They were easily identifiable and unique, albeit sometimes stereotypical or tending to caricature (the wild and crazy best friend, the sleazy manager, the snobbish in-laws). Still, I enjoyed each one's appearance, and any one of them could have carried a scene by themselves. - The dialogue. It read realistically, and each character had a distinct voice. There was an appropriate balance between humor, politeness, and the kinds of off-handed comments [...]


    14. Ugh, you couldn't pay me enough to be married to a musician, let alone a successful one.I had a couple of qualms with this book. The biggest one being how completely clueless this couple was about Julian's success. I understand that it happened quickly, and no one knows what fame is like until they have it, but this wasn't exactly overnight stardom. Brooke and Julian had worked tirelessly every day for years to achieve this. Brooke had two jobs to make up for the fact that her husband was workin [...]


    15. What a disappointing return of Lauren Weisberger. She's one of my favorite chick-lit authors (or dare I say one of my favorite authors, period?). She has a way of writing that's neither cliche or predictable, and she always depicts her characters as realistic, relatable, and authentic. But, this book was all sorts of wrong. First off, how many times can you write, "Brooke wanted to say" or "Brooke was thinking, but never could come up with the words" or "Brooke thought to herself, but was too in [...]


    16. Compared to Chasing Harry Winston, Last Night at Chateau Marmont is a masterpiece. However, as just another chick-lit novel, it’s decent.If I hated CHW book so much, why would I pick up another book by the same author? I suppose it’s my weak spot for musicians? Or the plot seemed a little bit more interesting? To be honest, I have no idea why I picked this up, but I’m not entirely regretting it.Lauren Weisberger seemed to learn a bit more about characterization since she wrote CHW. I actua [...]


    17. I am being completely honest when I say that I am not a huge fan of girlie books or movies. For instance, I’ve only seen one episode of “Sex and the City” and I wasn’t sure what the fuss was all about. This is probably why I don’t normally pick up books that are classified as chick lit.One of my friends, Meri, recommended that I read “Last Night at Chateau Marmont” by Lauren Weisberger. She assured me that I’d enjoy it, and since Lauren Weisberger also wrote “The Devil Wears Pr [...]


    18. I found the first chapter was hard to get into. But, it really picked up after that. I totally got swept away by the story. The characters seemed alive to me, and I was very invested in knowing how it all worked out. I could empathize with Brooke. The author did an incredible job of making her characters and their lives seem very believable (even though the idea of your husband becoming a rock start is pure fantasy! ha ha). While I loved Brooke and Julian, I also enjoyed Nola. I wish she was my [...]


    19. I usually do not read or even like books involving celebrities or having Hollywood as the backdrop. The only exceptions are The Devil Wears Prada (which I enjoyed enormously) and Everyone Worth Knowing (which was hugely disappointing) - both by Lauren Weisberger. However, I was not expecting to like Last Night at Chateau Marmont much. But it surprised me. It turned out to be more than a "chick-lit". Like The Devil Wears Prada , it's humorous, witty and enjoyable ; at the same time , it is about [...]


    20. Ok, so from reading other reviews of this book, and having enjoyed reading The Devil Wears Prada but disliking Chasing Harry Winston I was torn about reading this book. So I was glad that I spotted it at my local library and decided I would test run it before seeing if I wanted to add it to my Lauren Weisberger collection. I found the book incredibly easy to get into, I found the lead character Brooke a bit predictable but I found myself easily relating to her and imagining myself in her world. [...]


    21. I bought this book on a whim and I must say that at first, I really didn't like it too much. It wasn't until the shit hit the fan for good in the story that I finally found myself interested and then I tore through the thing within two days (I've actually read a couple of books between starting this one and finishing it).So, despite the controversial options on Last Night, it's a really good story. Lots of drama, lots of things happening, lots of opportunities to curse at the characters and I fo [...]


    22. I can't believe this is from the same author as The Devil Wears Prada because it's SO bad. The dialogue is bad, the characters are weak, Brooke never confronts Julien about any of the things that really matter and just falls back into his arms on the pretense that he'd do the right thing. And The fact that this soulful's singer #1 hit is about his baby brother he never knew who died from SIDS, 30 some odd years prior is ridiculous and sounds like Weisberger is working out her own issues. That's [...]


    23. I chose this book for a purely frivolous reason. Back in 1991 I spent a night at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. I was passing through and stayed at this iconic hotel frequented by the rich and the famous. It was a lovely place, but I didn't spot a single celebrity. The novel, I found, had very little to do with the hotel. Nevertheless, it was a fast and entertaining read about a rock star's sudden fame and how it almost ruined his marriage. If you like to read People magazine and soak up po [...]


    24. This is only the second Weisberger novel I've read, but I savored it just as much - if not more - than THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA. For one thing, I felt great empathy for Brooke, the protagonist, and her struggle to balance her own needs and desires against the public and private demands imposed by her husband's sudden fame.


    25. Beaucoup moins bien que le Diable s'habille en Prada à mon avis. Des personnages un peu cliché, une fin décevante car trop optimiste à mon avis, bref, pas indispensable


    26. This book was okay. Not great. Not terrible. I liked the story line & liked the character of Brooke enough to care what happened to her. I definitely wasn't crazy about all the "ohmigod"s.



    27. What will you do if your husband become a superstar at one night?Brooke Alter merasakan hal itu. Setelah lima tahun Julian Alter, suaminya, berjuang menjadi intern di Sony, kabar gembira itu datang juga. Sony signed him. Selama ini, Brooke memerankan peran seorang istri yang suportif, bahkan rela double job untuk memenuhi kebutuhan mereka, juga membayar sewa studio, agen, manajer, dan mendukung penuh karir Julian. Brooke yakin Julian is a superstar meski menurut sahabatnya Nola, Julian is only a [...]


    28. This book reminded me of why I don't often read Chick Lit. I must be missing part of the x chromosome that is supposed to find this stuff interesting.I loathed the main character; she is so whiny and childish. Brooke acts more like a teenaged girl than a grown woman. Perhaps if the author had spent more time establishing her credibility--demonstrating her to be a level-headed, mature, and loving person--then she may have been a more sympathetic character. However, I found myself almost rooting f [...]


    29. Originally posted at rockread.westofmarsI am not sure I knew Last Night at Chateau Marmont fell squarely into the category of Rock and Roll Fiction until a copy arrived from BookMooch and I read the cover flap. It’s the story of Brooke Alter and what happens to her when her husband lands a recording deal and becomes music’s new darling.Okay, so it’s about Julian as he becomes a mega-star. That qualifies for rock and roll fiction, right? Even if Julian isn’t a rocker as much as a pop musi [...]
