Though I'm usually a fan of a quick Bushnell read, and other chick lit books, I found these "short stories" to be absolutely pointless. I made it through the book, and afterwards thought, "Wow, what a waste of my time." Not up to par with her others - I don't recommended it.
Couldn't stand the 2nd, 3rd or 4th stories. The only story I enjoyed was Janey's and I will read Trading Up because I want to know what happens to her. These short stories were pointless and I found the author's writing style horrendous, hard to follow, not to mention overuse of parentheses drove me batty in all but Janey's stories. I would not recommend this book.
Sen and the City author Candace Bushnall returns to the playgrounds of Manhattan's powerful and beautiful with her sizzling sensation Four Blondes, which gives an insider's look at the romantic intrigues, liasions, and betrayals among the elite. She chronicles the lives of four beautiful women - a model, a columnist, a socialite, and a writer - as they face turning points in which each must choose between her passions.
Could have been subtitled, "Not as dumb as you think they are". Several short stories, filtered with some sarcasm. Read with tongue in cheek, particularly "Nice n' Easy," about a woman who searches every summer for a boyfriend with just the right house in the Hamptons.
Honestly, this book is not real good. It doesn't really have a plot or overall meaning. But if you like books about different women doing completely different things in their life than you will like this book. Not one of my favorites, for sure.
