    1. There will be spoilers in this commentary, but that's okay, because you won't want to read it after this anyway.Yes, I actually took notes on this book whilst reading it. My not-long-awaited commentary is as follows:pg 11: Oh, now I know the narrator's name. Took her long enough. Angel. Okay. What?pg 47: I've just realised what is bothering me about this--the characters seem very unnaturally-put together. Their traits clash a lot, and not in a good way. For example, this is what I've got so far [...]


    2. Not to go on a feminist rant, but does every chick lit novel have to have a young woman go to humiliating lengths to please her unbelievably demanding female boss? Why do all women in power have to be bitchy, unsympathetic and slightly insane? I bought this book because I thought it would be fun to see someone poke a little fun at the industry I work in, but besides the goofy query letters, there wasn't too much resembling a real "insider's look" at publishing. I also found it somewhat ironic th [...]


    3. For obvious reasons, I'm always a sucker for novels set in the book trade, so this was a natural for me.Angel Robinson, at the urging of her would-be-writer boyfriend Malcolm, gets a job as dogsbody at the prestigious Lucy Fiamma Literary Agency, ruled in tyrannical fashion by Lucy Fiamma herself. Very soon Angel shows herself to have a good eye for marketable manuscripts, and Lucy starts taking her views seriously and giving her extra responsibility (and pay) -- a mixed blessing, because Angel [...]


    4. I packed the book for my trip to Boston and Philly but read all 328 pages on the drive from Amherst, Massachusetts to New Jersey.I really enjoyed this novel. While the horrible boss theme has been done before (The Devil Wears Prada), the e-mailed murder novel is a nice twist.It’s a quick read that was easy to read, but enjoyable all the same. “But reading was only part of the thrill that a book represents. [Angel] got a dizzy pleasure from the weight and feel of a new book in my hand, a sens [...]


    5. this was the perfect sunday read! :-) i had a lot of fun reading it - nice story, great characters, easy to read and i couldn't put it down because i wanted to know how it ends! and what can be better than a book about books?


    6. A blind submission is when a person submits there manuscript without using an agent and without contacting the publisher at all,in other words just dropping it in the mail out of the blue.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Angel Robinsons boyfriend,Malcolm,talks her into taking a job as personal assistant to San Francisco literary agent,Lucy Fiamma,she is a vicious slave-driver,she has no love of books or writers.Angel seems to have a gift for finding the best [...]



    7. Another addition to the Chick Lit genre which takes place in the publishing industry, Blind Submission is The Devil Wears Prada, set in a literary agency. Also similar to Prada, rumor has it that this book is a roman e clef. Just as Miranda Priestly is rumoured to be born in the image of Anna Wintour in Prada, the publishing doyenne recently fired from Harper Collins, Judith Regan, is purported to be the inspiration for boss-from-hell, Lucy Fiamma, in Blind Submission.Blind Submission has all th [...]


    8. This first novel from Debra Ginsberg has an intriguing premise. Angel Robinson joins a literary agency as assistant to the legendary Lucy Fiamma, a soul sister to The Devil Wears Prada's Miranda Priestley. As she learns to deal with Lucy's outrageous demands and her own crumbling personal life, Angel discovers she has a flair for spotting and refining talent. And then an anonymous manuscript appears and everything changes.I liked it at first. The characters are distinctive enough, the plot moves [...]


    9. La lettura era solo una parte del piacere che ricavavo dai libri. Provavo una piacevole ebbrezza sentendo tra le mani il peso e la consistenza di un nuovo libro, e un godimento sensuale alla fragranza e al fruscio delle pagine. Adoravo i colori brillanti delle copertine lucide. Una piramide di libri non ancora letti era la struttura architettonica più sexi che potessi immaginare, perchè di un libro mi attiravano soprattutto le promesse nascoste, i tesori inesplorati che immaginavo racchiusi fr [...]


    10. So many stereotypes.A slow start: The Devil Wears Prada set in a literary agency schilling books to publishers.Mediocre middle: Young woman finding herself and how capable she is in her jobd realizing gorgeous boyfriend is a loserEnd: GOOD. The last quarter of this book is worthy of a 5 star rating but it took so long to get here I'm afraid I'm only going to view this as a 3 overall. Excellent end twist and resolution; too bad it took so long to get there.


    11. I found the story entertaining enough at the beginning, but then I gradually began to lose interest, as the same scene between characters at the literary agency repeated over and over. The emails and manuscript submissions seemed like filler in an already overly long book, and I skipped reading them altogether. I lightly skimmed the last third of the book to a cliched, hearts and flowers happily ever after that left me shaking my head.


    12. This book was so bad. I wanted to scream at the main character throughout the whole book. Your boss is a bitch, your boyfriend is a dick, and your coworkers are assholes. Just leave everything! It's not the like the main character was super great either. She was pretty annoying as well. I didn't like anyone in this book except maybe the Italian writer. He seemed pretty cool.


    13. Tough it out until the end Angel’s interaction with the mystery author dragged out the story. And the love interest I mean hard to believe they had such a connection just via phone calls. Did every single character just love Angel 👎I did care for that either. Happy endings for all even the witch Lucy????? Ended strong though


    14. UniqueI liked this book for the originality of the story. It kept me reading to see how things would all turn out in the end. To me the only downside was that most of the characters were very un-likable.


    15. Un autre roman que j'ai aimé. Ma curiosité a été éveillé par le titre et je suis heureuse d'avoir suivi mon intuition face au titre. Bonne lecture différente.



    16. Uneori îmi place să intru într-o librărie și să cumpăr o carte despre care n-am auzit niciodată până atunci, bazându-mă pe rezumatul de pe spate. Și pe preț. Cartea asta am găsit-o cu cinci lei la Kilipirim, iar descrierea suna foarte interesant, iar la prețul ăla, no harm done. Uneori găsesc câte o carte care îmi place mult, alteori sunt dezamăgită. Aici se aplică primul caz.Personajul principal aici este Angel Robinson, iar ea e o cititoare înrăită, care ajunge să lu [...]


    17. Debra Ginsberg's Blind Submission is another book I found through the book blogging world, and it qualifies for the Irresistible Review Challenge. I read the review of this book at Book Escape. While this book was deemed a mystery, I found it less mysterious than I originally expected. Whether that is because I am overly analytical, I don't know. I did figure out the ending among the first mentions of the mystery manuscript, Blind Submission, but I was eager to see how the mystery unfolded.***Sp [...]


    18. The Devil is a Literary AgentThis is a page-turner and I am the perfect audience for a book like this. Read further to see if you may be as well.Reason #1: It's very well written. Debra Ginsberg has an easy way with words, moves the plot forward with each page, and develops her characters, such as they are, beautifully.Reason #2: Like the protagonist, Angel Robinson--a bookstore employee-turned assistant to a high-powered literary agent--I'm a voracious reader, I appreciate books and am sympathe [...]


    19. Cherche auteur désespérement est le livre que j'ai eu la chance de recevoir lors de la 3ème opération Babélio-Masse Critique.Séduite par le résumé, j'ai coché la case correspondante à ce titre. C'est sur la plage que je l'ai dévoré! Le cadre de l'histoire s'intègre dans le monde des livres, de l'édition et des agents littéraires. En gros l'appât idéal pour une amoureuse des livres.4ème de couverture : Angel Robinson a l'impression de vivre un rêve. Elle qui ne jure que par les [...]



    20. I really loved The Grift, so I thought I'd give Blind Submission, Ginsberg's first novel a try. It's not nearly as good as The Grift. Rather than the protagonist, Angel, the character Lucy Fiamma seems to be the most well-defined in the book. Actually, I got a better picture of nearly all the characters than I did of Angel herself. Lucy is so overbearing that I actually was uncomfortable reading about the things she did sometimes - which is a triumph of characterization. On the other hand, I cou [...]


    21. Angel Robinson (yes that is her real name) is a reader, she loves books and is contentedly working at a book store. She lives frugally and loves Malcolm, a writer and waiter, she thinks is too handsome for her. When her friend, boss, and bookstore owner decides to close the store, Malcolm posts an add to work as an assitant to a legendary and flamboyant literary agent. Angel applies and gets the job and embarks on an aborbing and exhausting job with eccentric co-workers and a contradictory, ego- [...]


    22. Satire about publishing set in a small literary agency in California. Every night, the narrator, Angel, works for a famous agent who is inconsistent and nutty; Angel's co-workers are scary; and every night Angel lugs home her weight in manuscripts. All of this gives me nightmares and makes me glad I left the biz all those years ago. So far, the writing is smart, funny, and very good--much better than I expected. Given the current state of publishing, what else can you do but laugh?I stayed up la [...]


    23. I quite enjoyed this booked all in all. I agree with some of the other reviewers in that many of the characters lacked depth or cohesive qualities now were they appealing or relatable in any way. I also find it had to believe that any boss could be as mean as Lucy is written to be and legally get away with it let alone keep a successful business running (she is obviously a very intelligent woman so shouldn't she learn a little something about staff retention) and this annoyed me. I kept saying t [...]


    24. Chick Lit, which goes like this: Chick on the periphery of an industry (in this book--the world of literary agents) tells about industry while struggling to "make it" in the world, and finds true love with another peripheral player. Lots of fashion and/or food descriptions as well as insight into the industry. I happen to like the genre (I skim the fashion and food parts and double read the sex scenes. I'm a guy, after all.) Being a writer who disdains the whole concept of middlemen (sales agent [...]


    25. A quick-and-dirty mystery about the publishing business. Debra Ginsberg writes in a style very similar to one she mocks and she cheats on the ending (rather than write it, she uses a series of news releases to wrap things up too quickly and tidily). The characters are forgettable. The premise of a blind submission interesting. But, this novel doesn't have pretensions. It can be appreciated for what it is: a quick, entertaining riff on writers, agents and publishers."Reading was only part of the [...]


    26. Blind Submission is a well writen novel enveloped in anger and anxiousness. Although a page turner, this novel about a book lover, Angel, and her journery to become a literary agent is predictable. Not being one who gets "who done it" until someone tells me, I figured out who the annonymous author tormenting Angel was half way through the book. The first chapter is a dull bore and I almost put the book down. However, like I stated before, it is a page turner. The negativity that thrives in the w [...]


    27. This is chicklit set in the publishing world. The main character, Angel Robinson, loves to read books. The bookstore she works in is closing and her boyfriend, a writer, urges her to find work in the office of a literary agent. He has his own agenda in wanting her to get them to accept his work. Angel gets a job with the famous agent Lucy Fiamma, and finds Lucy to be a difficult boss. She also has issues with the other employees, who are not especially helpful to her. Kelly, whom everyone calls [...]
