The dialogue in the many conversations between the girls felt natural and there were a few chuckles along the way, but the characters were extremely stereotypical. There's the beautiful trust-funded socialite, the serious workaholic, and the timid mouse; and each of them has exactly the type of relationship you'd expect (torrid affairs, solid and stable, and the doormat). The story moves back and forth between each of the three girls lives and I found this made it feel a bit jumpy at times. It was also very predictable and took a frustratingly long time to get to exactly where you knew it was going. Then the story ends rather abruptly without really showing us the better lives the girls had built for themselves.
As you may have guessed, I didn't exactly love Chasing Harry Winston. I almost didn't finish this one, but I thought there would be some payoff at the end. There really wasn't enough of one to warrant recommending this.
This latest is centered on Leigh, Emma and Adriana, three single women in their late 20's living in Manhattan. The novel focuses on each individual as the girls self analyze themselves expressing their need for constant validation for their good looks and sex appeal. They are determined to catch eligible prospects at any cost. No holds barred.
This novel can't be taken too seriously; I found it to be a hoot at times, terribly funny. The characters are depicted in a very narcissistic way, superficial and immature, highlighting the worst of the female stereotypical characteristic in each of them.
The feminists may feel offended by some of the ways the women are perceived. I found their adventures hilarious.
This is a fast, an easy read, a real soap opera script one that may tickle your fancy...
