This novel was required reading for my freshman year of high school. The story fascinated me and led me to the world of utopian/dystopian books, which are now my favorite genre. Rand takes you into a place where everyone is told they are equal, but can it be possible?

The novel is long, but contains a lot of humor and irony. For a war book, there isn't a lot of military action! Worth reading.

I didn't realize this book would have an emphasis on religion, which felt very out of place in chick lit. Aside from that, the book was boring and all over the place. It was hard to get into the characters when you didn't learn their history until halfway through the book. Sometimes, there was too much detail; other times, there wasn't enough. I wonder if I should have read her first book?

Very detailed, thorough history of Tiffany & Co.'s rise to success with a focus on how classic pieces were designed/obtained. The photographs are the best part, ranging from close-ups of classic, iconic jewelry to advertisements to celebrities wearing Tiffany items.
