“THE FUNNIEST FICTIONAL HEROINE SINCE BRIDGET JONES.”—Teen PeopleLast summer, Vivian Livingston set the world ablaze in her first book The Autobiography of Vivian, a tell-all tale of a girl trying her best to be the woman she knows she is inside. With demons to kick, confidence to gather, and goals to reach, Vivian decides to leave her safe ‘n’ sound hometown and take a bite out of the Big Apple. If she can make it there . . . well, you know the song. Fast forward five eventful years—anyone would have thought that Vivian finally had it all: the “nice” guy, the great job, the “work in progress” bachelorette pad, a backstage pass to New York City, and an emotional first aid kit just in case. Not so fast! Just when Vivian thought that she had arrived (and on time no less), think again! Enter: an ever-buoyant subconscious, mind games without a set of directions, and pressures that make final exams and deciding on first date attire look like cake.In her second book, Vivian takes on her biggest challenge yet: herself. Her real fears, her true hopes, and her big dreams. Befriend her as she realizes that disillusionment comes with the territory, that “breaking the glass ceiling” is the least of it, and that your past—the good and the bad—is a part of you forever. Take the journey alongside Vivian; be her travel companion through this game called life. Bring along a notebook, be sure to stop and smell the roses, and pack your favorite cocktail dress just in case!

I absolutely LOVED this book! You actually feel like you are having a conversation with your best girlfriend over latte while you are reading this book. I laughed out loud so many times from getting her first "Brazilian wax" to her crashing out at her boyfriends place for the first time after a night of cocktails, not knowing that her turqiouse undies were in plain view the next morning - she wakes up and he says, "So...what's up J-Lo?"
Vivian is so extremely honest and forces us to remember that "one" guy in every girls life that may have not treated us so kindly and was somewhat abusive to us. Yes, we've all been there at one time or another. But, she keeps on going on and is bound and determined , "I will show him". She makes you remember what it's like to go on first dates and the games that men/women play IE; The Rules.
I seriously think that anyone - no matter what age you are, you will laugh-out loud at this book! I can't wait until her next novel - ...
Sorryyy
What is going on here? Why these vicious reviews of this book! I loved it. In fact, I have told everyone I know about [it], and I think that it is so funny.
Vivian is a born comedian with everyday trials and drama. Her descriptions made me miss New York so much it hurt.
This book isn't War and Peace, but do you really want to take notes to understand a book? NO! I read this book twice, one time when I first picked it up, and then again this Fall, when I was out of the country and having guy troubles, it reminded me of home (America), and also took my mind off of the guy I was seeing.
I cannot wait to read the sequel, and I think this should take the place of Sex and the City on HBO when it goes off the air!
I will continue to tell everyone I know to buy this! It is GREAT!

I LOVED The Autobiograpy of Vivian and think that I gave it ***** stars. Not so for the sequel. I find it hard to believe that the same person wrote Vivian Lives since I laughed*and*laughed at almost every page of her first novel.
To be honest, I've forced myself to read maybe half of the book and am so dissapointed. I agree with other opinions that it's publicity hyped for her website [...] (which I still love).
This sequel was such a let down to me that I would not recommend unless you have trouble falling asleep at night....

Something about this book drew me in, I have to admit. As much as I dislike Bridget Jones and her knockoffs, as often as I refuse to watch Sex And The City, there was something appealing about Vivian Livingston (in the first five pages). Maybe the fact that she's an average girl, as the preface keeps saying. Except she's not an average girl, is she? She wins a songwriting contest despite having no discernible talent. She has dinner with a bonafide movie star. She gets a great job because someone thinks she's cute. And she never has to struggle with money. Wow, if that's run-of-the mill realism, sign me up.
This "book" reads more like a weblog, which makes sense considering its origin. It has not nearly enough dialogue. The plot is best described as summary and rushes through darling Viv's first few months (days? minutes?) in NYC as if there's somewhere better to get to. The abusive boyfriend plot was manipulative and completely unbelievable. Krantz's patchwork-quilt storytelling style is downright aggravating: She drops a major character into the fray, expecting us to like or dislike him/her instantaneously; then gives crucial background information in drips and drops scattered throughout the rest of the book. She does this over and over again. Viv's parents, brothers, friends, are paper dolls. We learn nothing about them except that they support our plucky heroine. Joy. And as for the sixth-grade writing style (total sarcasm in parentheses! smileyfaces :)! exclamation points!!!!)... If this is the new chicklit, I'm resigning my gender.

No, it's not deep and thought-provoking, symbolic of anything, or the next Catcher in the Rye. But it's fun! Having done the NYC thing myself, I can say that the day-to-day lifestyle Vivian lives is realistic (not the VH1, dates with big stars parts, but the mundane apartment issues, dog poop, coffee and/or drinks with friends parts are accurate, as are the very fine firefighters!). The one discordant note is the backstory on Vivian's previous relationship--it's hard to buy that someone so well-adjusted has so recently survived such abuse. But Vivan's, or should I say Ms. Krantz's, easy-going, chatty voice is as easy to read as cool lemonade is to drink on a hot day. It's true, Ms. Ordinary can make it, just like anyone else. She just may have to shlepp a little more coffee to do it. A semi-inspiring, but mostly just fun, read.

This book is awesome. I don't know why there are so many bad reviews. The book reads like Vivian is having a conversation with you. It is very easy to follow and a fast read. You can relate so well to the character and the story is told as an actual non-fictional autobiography.
I was so siked when the 2nd book came out. And when I found out about the 3rd, I put all other reading material aside and picked it up that day. I'm 3/4 through and dreading then end. I hope they decide to continue the series (even though it's a trilogy).
The book has been described as fluffy but I kind of like fluffy. That is what chick lit is for. Otherwise, I'd be reading 'War & Peace' or something like that.
Anyway, I would at least give it a try. It's a realatively short book and like I said before, a short read. If you don't like it, then you don't have to continue the series. But I think you will.
