I saw the tv series before I read the book, and liked it, so I thought I'd read the book too. Although it's an entertaining, quick read with an interesting concept, it's a little disturbing to think that people might actually act like that. If you thought the characters were nasty on television, they are even worse in the book. It was also a little disappointing that nothing was resolved at the end of the book. It's like the author is forcing you to read the rest of the books in the series so that you know how things turn out.

Great quick read. I watch this show all the time and never even thought of reading the book until now. It was pretty good. I definitely think, because of all the drinking, sex, and drugs, that it is meant for the 18 and over even though the kids in the story are in high school.

I really liked this book, but I kept wondering, 'Who the heck is Gossip Girl?' since she doesn't reveal herself. She seems to be a very mysterious person since she's always on top of things, but won't reveal herself.

Very well written, but not the best storyline.
Overall, good.

Welcome to New York's Upper East side where the wealthy and connected mingle at benefits and try to deal with their always dramatic love lives, not to mention picking colleges. Blair Waldorf is the so-called toast of adolescence in her world; she and her friends, Kati Farkas and Isabel Coates, go to a prep school and fancy parties with their rich parents. Blair is envied by her adversaries because she is thought to have the perfect life, not just because of her gorgeous boyfriend, Nate Archibald, but because she's also planning on getting into her dream college, Yale. With everyone worried about college(or procrastinating on worrying, which everyone seems to be doing), and senior year dragging along, her seemingly perfect life is interrupted by her ex-best friend, the beautiful Serena van der Woodsen, coming back into town after getting kicked out of boarding school. Serena comes back into her life, and into the eyes of Blair's boy friend. When everything Blair knows starts to fall apart, everyone will realize that her life is far from perfect. Will life in the the Upper East Side redeem itself of what it's really supposed to be? Or will the false facade reveal that the rich have the same problems as the not so rich (Jenny and Dan Humphrey), if not more. And just maybe Jenny and Dan are all the more happy with their simple, not so expectant lives.

[To Vanessa] When are you going to realize that I had a better life until you climbed up my fire escape four years ago?

I'd say I'm great—I mean, look at my hair, my body, my clothes? But I've become a Bedford wife, and it's really just the worst thing.

I used to want to be like you, but now I want to be like Blair. At least she’s going to be a princess.

Why did you lead me on for weeks only to tell me you didn’t like me. Is that something you learned from Serena?

He needed a hot wife to impress his partners and I wanted a loft and a legacy at Yale for Milo. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go get drunk enough to make you all seem interesting.

Wait, just tell me that no one's trying to stop a wedding, run a Ponzi scheme, give anybody fake cancer, or turn into a justifiably vengeful townie.
