Overview

Lipstick Jungle: A Novel by Candace Bushnell

The new novel that fans of the bestselling author have been waiting for, about three sexy, powerful career women who will do anything to stay at the top of their fields

Victory Ford is the darling of the fashion world. Single, attractive, and iconoclastic, she has worked for years to create her own signature line. As Victory struggles to keep her company afloat, she learns crucial lessons about what she really wants in a relationship.

Nico O'Neilly is the glamorous, brilliant editor of Bonfire Magazine—the pop-culture bible for fashion, show business, and politics. Considered one of the most powerful women in publishing, she seems to have it all. But in a mid-life crisis, she suddenly realizes this isn't enough.

Wendy Healy's chutzpah has propelled her to the very top of the cut-throat movie industry. When it becomes clear that a competitor is trying to oust her, something has to give—and Wendy must decide between her career and her marriage.

In Lipstick Jungle, Bushnell once again delivers an addictive page-turner of sex and scandal that will keep readers enthralled and guessing to the very last page.

I rented Lipstick Jungle, the NBC show (I'm starting disc 2) and I fell in love with the characters and drama. My experience with books is that they are always better than their movies or TV shows. What happened here? This book was an endless rant about nothing. It was a day in the life of these three women and just when you thought a plot was about to develop, the author flashes into some side or back story about that character. I kept fighting to keep reading hoping there would be conflict or plot, but after 200+ pages of the 400+, I gave up. I guess I will keep enjoying the show (hopefully that will keep up the momentum).

Not the best. Usually books are much better than the movie or TV series. Not so in this case. It just seemed disjointed with no real plot or character development. Towards the end, I just couldn't wait for the book to be finished. I had hoped that the ending would help tie everything together but no such luck.

I liked the book. I thought the this author would be a little like Barbara Taylor Bradford. She was a little. I liked her writing as far as it was easy to read, but I did not like so many flashback chapters. I have read reviews of other people who have read her work and they say she jumps around a lot. So I don't think I would be interested in her earlier work, but I would recommend checking out her recent bestseller.

I read this book, but I was disappointed with the structure and the way it was done. I wanted more on each character and did not like the way it was ended. So I guess, I am not disappointed in the plots or the characters, just wanted more on each.

This is without a shadow of a doubt the worst book that I have ever had the misfortune to have had to endure. I was obliged to read cover to cover as it was a gift, and the giver was certain to ask my opinion of it (reader, I lied to him). Believe me under any other circumstances I would have used it as kindling before the end of page 1. It is dreadful contrived, silly and full of characters who don't even deserve the accolade of having two dimensions. This book is poorly written yet entirely predictable, full of clichés and characters so utterly self absorbed and out of touch with reality that they make the stereotypes who populate Bushnell's other novels look like paragons of selfless virtue. Lipstick Jungle had me reaching for the sick bucket at least once per page, right down to the closing lines: 'it's a jungle out there' says intolerable female character #1, 'no, girls' says self satisfied female character #2 'it's a Lipstick Jungle'. I can honestly say that I've seen superior work featuring more interesting characters and better executed plot-lines scrawled on the walls of public toilets.

How in the world did this earn itself four stars? This POS is a mangled montage of cliches and inaccurate facts (ie. the statement that men have been disrespecting women for "millions of years." Yes. MILLIONS of years). It is some of the poorest writing I have ever read from anyone, let alone an adult, and following up Sex and the City with this was not a good idea. SATC was at least creative. Every description of anything in this book is a complete stereotype you have to wonder if she's ever even set foot in New York. Just amateur. All over. I understand it's "chick lit" but that's a disgrace to both of those words. Typos. Syntax. Simple facts. A puddle of hideously fantasized keyboard-vomit. So disappointed! Can you tell?

This one jumps about a bit too much for my tastes but I enjoyed it on the whole. Very funny lines, too.

First, I must admit that I haven't had the pleasure of reading Sex and the City, so this is my first adventure with Candace Bushnell. I thoroughly enjoyed this book with three females as the center. I loved that each character was unique, but their friendships with each other were genuine and I could imagine how they became friends and why they stayed friends. A story of their adventures in New York and the trials that women face. I absolutely adored how the women in this story were successful and powerful. It was interesting to read how the men in their life reacted to their successes. I enjoy reading books were the men are put into a different position and how the dynamics of the family must change due to the role reversals. A great chick lit that made me want to continue reading Candace Bushnell. A must read for all chick lit fans.

I loved the show when it was on a few years back and was icredibly sad when it was cancelled. I saw the book at BN and thought, if i liked the show why not the book? So i picked it up and fell in love all over again!

i seldom sacrifice my sleep for anything else. This had killed one night of my beauty sleep. Though i wish the ending was more satisfying, it's nevertheless a very good read.
