I'm only half way through this book, but I don't think my reaction to it will change as I finish listening. I'd never read Candace Bushnell before, so maybe it's typical of her books, but the tone of this book is very pretentious. Perhaps its because of the subject matter, but it's a bit off putting. I think the narrator's faux British accent contributes, too. The book isn't brilliant, but it is light weight reading if you don't feel like doing much heavy lifting on your commute.
