Book Review ~ One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell

I've never read anything from Candace Bushnell, however I am a huge fan of Sex in the City. When giving the chance to read Bushnell's new book, One Fifth Avenue, I was excited.

When Louise Houghton, the aged grande dame of New York society, dies, the fate of her celebrated apartment becomes the obsession not only of the real estate industry, but of everyone living at the fabled address. Located at One Fifth Avenue in an Art Deco architectural gem, the 7,000-square-foot apartment reflects an age and milieu long past its ability to influence social prominence—or so it is thought.

I found One Fifth Avenue an enjoyable read. There are several characters to get straight, but once you do the book is a quick read. If you enjoy chick-lit, you will love this book. The characters are well developed and likable. The book really delves deep into people. It explores what happens when the desire for the best in life doesn't add up but you can't stop pursuing it anyway. This book flows well, you want to find out what will happen to each of the characters.

I'm sure this will be another hit show in the future! The way the book ends, you want more. We will either see another book or tv series. Well, we can hope anyway!
