This book has been in my book pile for awhile. It was like a movie that you really don't want to go see, but are dragged to, then you are pleasantly surprised. No, this is not a "Sex In the City" book. This is a fresh story about people who live at One Fifth Ave and how their everyday lives are entangled. I enjoyed and recommend.

I got this book as a birthday present and could not wait to read this as my first summer read. I can honestly say I was truly disappointed. There were too many characters and not enough story surrounding each character. I kept waiting for the story line to pick up but after around page 300 I realized it wouldn't. At that point I was too far along to stop. For me, her other books were far more superior to this one.

    Winding, slow, not great.

    Unfortunately, I was 10 pages in when I realized this book was going to be a drag, but I was determined to finish. I found there to be too many characters too keep up with or care about. The plot was lacking, seemingly there isn't one. I picked a couple of characters to care about and kind of skimmed over the rest of the stories.

    Eh.

    I couldn't even finish it. I think it was to over my head. I do want to read her other books - Sex and The City & others.

    zzzzzzz....boring

    Ho-hum...when I am going to learn I don't really like Candance Bushnell's books? Nothing engaging in this book. Characters were rather boring. If you were on a plane & had nothing else to read - this is adequate to pass the time. That's about all I can say about this one.

    Too many characters, not enough plot.

    I'm usually a fan of Candace Bushnell, but this book misses the mark. There are too many characters which make the book a confusing read. Bushnell spends too much time painting the myriad of characters to each be shallow in her/his own unique way, but she does not spend enough time developing the plot.
