      Fantastic fun quick read, especially enjoyed that it s a romance for women over 40 Also a nice insider look at what it s like to work in a modern ad agency just enough information to make me glad I live in a small town and have an uncomplicated job Beautifully written, funny, lively, fast paced and a great surprise at the end NOTE This is an ebook I wasn t able to read it electronically, but I got a printed copy and whizzed through it Apparently there are fun links at the end of the ebook, thoug [...]

      Making ItRoss, Helen Klein This is a great book as an intro to the world of advertising and life of New York City I adore that the author described why trends or ideals were popular in New York She did not expect the average reader to know everything about fashion, and life in New York Her story starts on a devastating day, when middle aged Audrey, has found her world crashing down She has unexpectedly been fired, without warning, and even though she has deep connections in the company she has n [...]

    3. Helen says:
      For anybody who is or was in advertising media at the turn of the century, you ll recognize a LOT of the landscape in this coming of middle age story about a woman who finds herself working for a man ten years younger and how does this affect her work, her marriage, her motherhood It s sort of like Mad Men thirty years later, from the point of view of an older, wiser, married Peggy Olson It also takes you out of the box of an e book with a digitally enhanced epilogue that lets you jump to conten [...]

      A beautiful story that made me sad.Very well written, this novel follows the professional and sentimental adventures of a woman approaching fifty Working in advertising, Audrey is a woman of experience in a constantly evolving environment An informatic error related is the start of a deep questioning She finds herself out of job one weekend and must face her fears Her husband is financially dependent of her salary while he has assumed the role of the housewives Her son is applying to college so, [...]

    5. Michelle says:
      This was a glimpse into a life so much diferent from mine, yet surprisingly similar The author did a wonderful job of engaging the reader psychologically and emotionally I found myself identifying with the main character, Audrey, then dispairing her choices, disliking her, only to understand and accept her as she forgave herself for her own flaws I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys beautiful writing and good character development that weaves a story that keeps you turning the page. [...]

    6. Connie says:
      I really enjoyed this book The main character s struggles with being a working mother of a certain age were very relatable The author does a great job of portraying the current advertising industry and her main character is a modern Peggy Olson of sorts I am looking forward to this author s next book Highly recommend

      Ugh, one book about rich people problems NYC literati, nobody cares.

    8. Amy says:
      Sometimes you read a book and discover that there is no one worth rooting for in the tome None of the characters are even all that likable.Such is the case with Making It.Audrey is a fortysomething woman caught in the throes of a staid, predictable life She has spent twenty two years as the breadwinner for her husband, teenage son, and herself, working as an ad woman for a New York agency Due to a computer snafu, Audrey believes she has been fired She spends the ensuing hours imagining what her [...]

      I could have read this in a day if I didn t have other things to do I quickly got into this and really liked Audrey and appreciated her constant struggle to keep up She s mid 40 s and adapting to a new, young culture in the ad world A fast paced plot with flawed and interesting characters Believable sub plots of college, marriage, stay at home vs career Highly recommendTE Curiously, for some reason this book doesn t readily come up on or when searching by Title I have to put in the Author Unfort [...]
