A completely pretentious, narcissistic bore. I kept listening, hoping the literary genious behind "Sex In The City" would come through...never happened. From a lame story line to weak characters, it started and finished as a shallow account of ostentatious people with superficial lives.
This book was painful to listen to. Maybe it's a better read, especially with all the Russian names that are hard to distinguish, but I doubt it. For whatever reason, this book is considered a "classic"...but it's classically boring. I don't know what Oprah was thinking when she picked this sleeper.
