The Nanny Diaries PDF ´ The Nanny Kindle -

The Nanny Diaries Wanted One young woman to take care of four year old boy Must be cheerful, enthusiastic and selfless bordering on masochistic Must relish sixteen hour shifts with a deliberately nap deprived preschooler Must love getting thrown up on, literally and figuratively, by everyone in his family Must enjoy the delicious anticipation of ridiculously erratic pay Mostly, must love being treated like fungus found growing out of employers Herm s bag Those who take it personally need not apply Who wouldn t want this job Struggling to graduate from NYU and afford her microscopic studio apartment, Nanny takes a position caring for the only son of the wealthy X family She rapidly learns the insane amount of juggling involved to ensure that a Park Avenue wife who doesn t work, cook, clean, or raise her own child has a smooth day When the X s marriage begins to disintegrate, Nanny ends up involved way beyond the bounds of human decency or good taste Her tenure with the X family becomes a nearly impossible mission to maintain the mental health of their four year old, her own integrity and, most importantly, her sense of humor Over nine tense months, Mrs X and Nanny perform the age old dance of decorum and power as they test the limits of modern day servitude Written by two former nannies, The Nanny Diaries deftly punctures the glamour of Manhattan s upper class


About the Author: Emma McLaughlin

My partner, Nicki, and I have been writing together for 12 years We re obsessed by what makes a satisfying story I m excited to hear from our readers what does it for them and what doesn t As a working mom, the only book time I manage to steal these days is right before bed I m not the girl who can watch SVU and go to sleep with a smile Ruling out kids the economy the world in peril as subject matter leaves sweeping Wharton epics or swift funny observations The best is when a book makes you feel like you re still talking in the whee hours with your best college friend.

    It is one long anecdote disguised as a novel A lot like Devil Wears Prada, it is just a laundry list of incidents while working for the shallow, designer clad perfectionist It readslike an article in Us Weekly, In Touch, and or the Mecca of all celebrity rag mag s, People What it is clearly the flaw in novels like Nanny Diaries, and Devil Wears Prada is that the protagonist fumbles through the novel lacking any goal or purpose Instead, these idealists, cute but not too cute young I

    This book was a gift while I was working as a nanny At first it was funny, with all of the little observations that all nannies make mainly about a certain, small subsection of women who hire nannies the wealthy, entitled, narcissistic bitches As the story progresses, it becomes obvious that the children are the losers, the parents have no business being parents, and the nannies do nothing to help make the family a better place Instead they whine about mistreatment, go along with abuse, a

    I read this during a series of fifteen minute breaks at my job In the interest of full disclosure, I have a bit of a grudge against any book packaged as chick lit, the literary equivalent of low cal fast food However, I thoroughly enjoyed both The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing and Prep, and understand that genuinely good fiction is sometimes whored out with candy colored covers so they ll sell, and I m always happy to be taken by surprise when that s the case Not so with this book Now, I re

    If you must insist on reading chick lit, I recommend this one There s a romantic subplot and lots of shopping and snarky best friend banter, of course, but the main relationship in the story is between the main character called Nan or Nanny by everyone in the story and her four year old charge, Grayer Both authors used to be nannies in New York City, and you can tell they really enjoyed venting their frustration about past employers in this book There s the controlling, neurotic mother, the If you must insist

    Awful I found the plot if you can call it that predictable and unimaginative and the characters flat BO ring Wish I could get those hours back of my life Can t believe they made a movie out of it Although, if there are as many people watching American Idol as they say there are, I m sure there s a ready audience for the movie.

    This is what happens when you go to a Goodreads book swap and pick up a trashy book, thinking Oh, i ll read this on the beach someday, it looks mindless And then you start reading it before bed one night to rest your brain And then you stay up for three hours reading it, not because it s good, but because it has a plot that is clear and fast moving, and that isthan you can say for all those high falutin books that win awards for talking about the moonlight falling on a burning rabbit This is what happens when you go to a G
