Re-read after about five years and it was just as funny, which I find is a rare occurrence. ( )
  encephalical | Oct 16, 2018 |
A brilliant, brilliant novel! (And in my opinion far better than "Catcher in the Rye", because Lorelei is an unreliable but likable narrator who does a fine job of navigating expectations to get what she wants in a pretty hostile world, and who is at least as self-centered as Holden but more fun.)

Lorelei Lee has a very distinctive voice. Her blend of "refined" and ignorant is funny at first, but rather touching as one gets into her head. As is her approach to life: while she cites high ideals, she is utterly pragmatic when it comes to actions, to a point where one can only admire the choices made by "a girl like I".

Her BFF, Dorothy- the brunette- is both more seemingly sensible and cynical, but also makes very poor life choices, especially by Lorelei's standards. Dorothy is a welcome snarky voice, though most of the snark sails right over Lorelei's head.

This edition contains "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and "But Gentlemen Marry Brunettes", plus a LOT of interesting back-story about the history of the books and their genesis.

It also has illustrations from an early edition, but unfortunately many of them are very muddy in print; I wish they had been cleaned up more.

These were the inspiration for the Marilyn Monroe movie, which was itself the inspiration for the Madonna "Material Girl" video- in which Madonna channels Lorelei for the dance number, and Dorothy for the context. Nicely done!

VERY highly recommended. This ought to be a taught classic. ( )

A fun romp through the mind of Manhattan's most famous gold digger. A quick, easy, lighthearted read. ( )

What a riot! So utterly entertaining. Really enjoyed Lorelei and Dorothy's journey into society to become more learned. While Lorelei's constant ability to overlook common sense is very amusing, I found Dorothy's 'riskay' remarks (which Lorelei never seems to understand to their full extent) to be totally gleeful. I was also particularly fond of the social commentary on prohibition and censorship in cinema. Truly great boook.

'You have got to be the Queen of England to get away with a hat like that.' ( )

"...and I began to write down my thoughts; not bitterly, as I might have done had I been a real novelist, but with amusement which was, on the whole, rather childish."

I have long loved the movie. I clearly wasted much of my life not reading the book. It is splendid and hilarious and perfect. ( )
