I was very happy to find that this novel is not your typical chick lit book and not at all like the Sex and the City novel which I found jarring and strange Bushnell basically tries to answer the following questions What happens when women act like stereotypical men Can they be respected and treated the same way in the workplace How do high powered careers affect a woman s relationship with her husband and family I am a big fan of the Lipstick Jungle TV series and was interested to see wh I was very happy to find that this novel is not your typical chick lit book and not at all like the

choices were made in the creation of the series While the same familiar characters are there harried Wendy, cool calm Nico, and cute Victory , they seem a lotcareer focused andruthless than their TV show counterparts The struggles they have with office politics and family duties are shown indetail and in a much less frivolous way For example, in the novel Wendy is very overwhelmed with her responsibilities at work and struggles a lotwith achieving a perfect work family balance than she does in the TV show Victory, a very successful fashion designer, is older and only a little bit flighty she shows the scars of a woman who has had to fight for her place in the world Nico is a lotcut throat than in the TV show, necessarily so for her job I think.The book is not perfect I am not sure that Candace Bushnell achieves three distinct voices for her three main characters Occasionally it just seemed like she had one ambitious character who was thrust into three different situations Also, the ending felt very rushed, as though she realized that her word count was getting out of hand and decided to throw a happy ending together But all in all, this was definitely a good read, and would probably be better received by those less interested in a fun, romantic romp andinterested in a serious minded read As a Sex and the City viewer, I thought I was going to enjoy this book however, that was not the case I think that the book could have been much better and that a few times hit on deeper thoughts that should have been further developed but instead were just dropped leaving the story somewhat superficial Now you might think Sex and the City SATC isn t exactly deep so what did I expect I suppose that after watching SATC for several years you naturally develop

on deeper thoughts that should have been further developed but instead were just dropped leaving the story somewhat superficial Now you might think Sex and the City SATC isn t exactly deep so what did I expect I suppose that after watching SATC for several years you naturally develop relationships with the characters so even though they are superficial you still care about them I never was able to truly connect with the characters in the book and it all just seemed very cliche and almost fake So, if you want a book that you can just disconnect and not use your mind for I suppose this one might be what you are looking for So, at first I was going to write this whole review about the book and why I SHOULDN T have liked it But the truth of the matter is that it was entertaining enough and it s okay for a book to be just that I m allowing myself to find the good in things for what they are And sometimes you want a fluffy, no brainer It s called ENTERTAINMENT Something I normally make myself feel guilty over enjoying.I truly didn t appreciate the whole, women can and should have it all and be the best attitude So, at first I was going to write this whole review about the book and why I

sometimes you want a fluffy, no brainer It s called ENTERTAINMENT Something I normally make myself feel guilty over enjoying.I truly didn t appreciate the whole, women can and should have it all and be the best attitude because I really don t think that s true See Here I go with the whole, why I shouldn t like it stuff I m stopping.If you try not to read too much into anything and just look at it as mindless entertainment, it s fine On one level, this is a bland enough book that would pass by the reader as soon as the book was put down It tells us about three ruthless female executives in New York who do lunch together whilst in pursuit of the American Dream This apparently involved backstabbing, sniffing outmoney,backstabbing and generally acting completely immorally whilst looking for

put down It tells us about three ruthless female executives in New York who do lunch together whilst in pursuit of the American Dream This apparently involved backstabbing, sniffing outmoney,backstabbing and generally acting completely immorally whilst looking for evenmoney again One of thepoignant moments and there are one or two is when one of the characters questions what you actually do with all this money you can t spend But the question is frivolously rhetorical no attempt is made to answer it I can t remember which character asks it because despite the author s best attempts to persuade us otherwise, I really can t distinguish between the three main protagonists of the novel Even their assorted, constantly changing other halves generally merge into the same bland, faceless goo to be honest.On another level though, the fact that a book like this can be written, obviously read quite widely, and can be repeated again and again by simply changing the names of the characters, the title of the book, the TV series or the film really should be quite disturbing If our world is in a mess and many would say in the second decade of the 21st century that it has been in better shape then it s the fact that somehow our society allows people like this to run roughshod through it, answerable to no one except the mighty dollar or Euro, or Pound or Yen etc which is at the root of many of our travails The Great American Dream More like the dreadful worldwide nightmare Wonderful writing but awful book The characters had no redeeming value, so much so that instead of rooting for the characters I was happy to see bad things happen to them These characters are the exact reason why some men hate feminists there is nothing wrong with being a strong woman but these women took it to another level of belittling and disrespecting the men in their lives These women seem to think that being a strong woman is about being as big of a jerk as you can to men, which could Wonderful writing but awful book The characters had no redeeming value, so much so that instead of rooting for the characters I was happy to see bad things happen to them These characters are the exact reason why some men hate feminists there is nothing wrong with being a strong woman but these women took it to another level of belittling and disrespecting the men in their lives These women seem to think that being a strong woman is about being as big of a jerk as you can to men, which couldn t be further from the truth Being a jerk, makes you a jerk, plain and simple, whether you re male or female Their shallowness and selfishness was appalling their failure to recognize how their actions affect their entire families, their quest for power and money put above being good decent people They are the kind of people who create awful situations in their lives and then blame everyone else when these situations go awry They are great businesswomen but it is possible to be smart, beautiful AND have a conscience and morals Lipstick Jungle weaves the stories of Nico O Neilly, Wendy Healy, and Victory Ford, numbers 8, 12, and 17 on The New York Post s list of New York s 50 Most Powerful Women Love reading books about women in power Sure, some parts annoyed me but it s a nice refreshment to see women with money, power, and choices Plus, it was also a nice refreshment to read about older women, women in their late 30s who can do it all and have it all This was like Sex and the City, but smarter. {Download} Ä Lipstick Jungle ð The new novel that fans of the bestselling
