The Pajama Game by Eugenie Seifer Olson
(Started: July 27, 2010; Finished: August 07, 2010)

"Dive into the sometimes sexy, sometimes sinister, always hilarious world of love in the panty business with Eugenie Seifer Olson, the quirky, smart new author for Avon Trade. When Moxie Brecker chose her kicky nickname back in college, it suited her perfectly. But now she feels it's one big misnomer. After graduation, she set out to command her own seventh-grade science class and was stunned to find the job too challenging. She didn't have the energy necessary to get a roomful of pre-teens excited about atoms, and she never felt like herself, so she handed in her chalk and lesson plans. Stumped about where to turn next, she followed the advice of her best friend, Gerard, and took a job folding underthings at the chain lingerie store in the mall. She's got plenty at home to distract her, including her neighbour, Steven Tyler (no, not that Stephen Tyler) and the kindly septuagenarian Joe, who runs the joke shop downstairs, but she spends her days languishing in the store. Though she feels tired and just out of it physically, she still gets bored steaming peignoir sets, protecting the thong table from shoplifters, and readjusting bras straps for hours on end. Maybe that's why, when a handsome guy named Allan starts hanging around the store for little chats, Moxie sees hope on the horizon. Maybe, just maybe, her employee discount won't go to waste for much longer. (From Shelfari)

This book is a snooze-fest. The first ever book that took me so long to finish.
It was really, really boring (no offense to the author). INCREDIBLY BOOOOORING! It is the kind of book that will make you sleep and when you wake up, you will not be able to remember what's it about. Although the cover and the chapter names are cute but it doesn't make up for the dull story. It is pointless. There is not even a climactic part. It is not even a comedy or a humorous book. I don't really get the point of the story. It is like the author wants to put everything together, like that weird illness, this girl who was a science teacher before but now works in a lingerie store, the married guy, etc. Nothing is happening. It was not an organize book for me. If you want to read this, it is not worth your money. Might as well borrow it from the library or a friend. One of the books, that I might say, has a very deceiving cover.
