I could hardly finish this one. Silly, and not in a good way. If you're reading this because you miss Sex and the City, skip it.

Started out great and very interesting plot development. I appreciate what she was trying to do with the ending but it just didn't work for me at all. I did see the big plot twist on the last page couple of pages coming...I found it quite obvious.

I've liked all her previous books but this one is not her best. Ending is downright ludicrous. Appreciate what she was trying to do for the ladies with this feminism-tinged book, but it could have been better.

I so wanted to like this book -- and indeed I loved the first two hundred pages in which Candace Bushnell captures the excitement and adrenaline of the high life in the Big Apple. Then, sadly, the plot veers off in a direction that is so ridiculous that it is insulting to the reader. Bushnell's feminist message, while worthwhile, is delivered in the clunkiest most credibility-stretching manner. However, by hanging in and trudging through to the end, I was rewarded with a surprise twist ending that I did not see coming. It wasn't enough to redeem the nonsense of the last third of the novel, but did somewhat take the sharp edge off my overall disappointment with this book.
