Nico has an affair with a male model, a specimen so moronic that even Bushnell can’t think of much for him to say. Refresh and try again. Jkngle gave this book 4 stars for several reasons.

Sex is an ex in the city

The most obvious omission, though, is the hope of romance, which gave momentum to the earlier novels Sex and the City’s Carrie and Mr Big was only another version of Pride and Prejudice. This was much better than the guilty pleasure I was expecting. Their lives are what early feminists’ dreams were made of: Lipstick Jungle Candace Bushnell, Author. I picked up this book because it’s a story about a women’s struggle in a corporate world.

It tells us about three ruthless female executives in New York who “do lunch” together whilst in pursuit of the “American Dream”. Lipstick Jungle was a bit hard to follow due to the fact that per chapter, Bushnell jumps from character to charter.

Whatever happened to equality? Bushnell basically tries to answer the following questions: Thank you for your feedback. What women can’t do that men can. I would only recommend this to Candace Bushnell fans and huge chick lit fans. In all honesty I purchased her books because she was the creator of SATC and in the end she really has nothing interesting to offer literature fans of the world.

Wendy the producer married a man who cou It is pure unadulterated fluff.

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.

Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. They were highly successful and motivated, they often had children, and usually were the providers for their families, and yet, they didn’t fit the old stereotype of the witchy businesswoman. 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.

Lipstick Jungle had a good message and a decent story.

Summer is a magical time in New York City and Carrie is in love with all of it—the crazy characters in her neighborhood, the vintage-clothing boutiques, the wild parties, and the glamorous man who has swept her off her feet. Something I normally make myself feel guilty over enjoying.

They are the daughters not of Sex and the City’s Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte, but of Anne, Neely and Jennifer – the steak- and scenery-chewing trio who graced Jacqueline Susann’s Valley of the Dolls One consequence of this gender reversal is that the casual misandry which underlies most of Bushnell’s work and indeed most chick-lit takes on a more sinister tone.
