    "I really wish there were more stories, you know to connect the more of an audience. I felt like I was just looking through a scrapbook and not an actual memoir of a persons life. I gained no moral or wise story from it. I got the book from my aunt, she was trying to go into fashion"

    "While this book may have tons of fashion in it, I think it's more of a book for older women who are desperate to look and feel younger. it's more of a makeover and "feel new' kind of book. i think it's still great. I'm reading and keeping it around for future reference. "

    "Nothing to see here, folks. An Extraordinary Theory of Objects is thin, has no narrative, and was more than likely published because the author is a New York hot shot with all the right connections. The only good thing about this book is its cover. "

    "I'm looking to do some research on the fashion world, and I thought reading some memoirs might be a good way to learn more. This Amazon listing doesn't have a whole lot of reviews, but those who have read it do seem to like it. I think I will definitely consider this one but might continue to search for other memoirs of people I'm more familiar with."

    "I think this plot essentially speaks for itself, and while this may not necessarily be something I would go out of my way to check out, I can appreciate the hard work and effort put into this book. The ratings are very strong so there is very much an audience for this and I can definitely applaud that!"

    "The best memoir about the fashion world The Vogue Factor by Kirstie Clements. This tell-all exposes the cutthroat culture of the world's most revered fashion masthead.
