Book #3: One Fifth Avenue

One Fifth Avenue One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ryan got me this book for Christmas this year. It wouldn't have been one I picked out -- I have read Candace Bushnell's Sex and the City and Lipstick Jungle and didn't come away with much of an impression.

But I have to say once I got into this book, I enjoyed it. Bushnell writes about high society New York City like she is writing a zoologist's field guide. There is never one main character, and in this case there is no fewer than eight characters who take on prominent roles. In the end, you end up rooting for a few, hating several and not caring about the rest.
