Publisher's Summary

A memorable ensemble cast of four young women who share a beautiful loft apartment in New York City's Hell's Kitchen and experience the glamour and challenges of city life, love, and career in this irresistible contemporary story.

Four young women's lives intersect in the apartment they've shared in Hell's Kitchen: Claire, a shoe designer; Abby, an aspiring novelist; Morgan, a successful financial consultant; and Sasha, a resident in obstetrics. As different as they are from one another, the women had become a family by choice. But while their lives had proceeded smoothly in the years they'd lived together, new relationships, job opportunities, and surprising circumstances will test the strength of their bond in and outside the loft that had become their home.

    "Laughable"

    This book is laughably lame. Written at a 5th grade reading level with a male narrator reading in a falsetto character voice. Awful.

    "Another Must Read from Danielle Steel"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Apartment to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print edition, but the audio edition could have been better.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Apartment?

    I think it was when Abby brings home a dog she adopted from a shelter on a whim. Her roommates aren't impressed but gradually open up to the dog and miss the dog when Abby leaves New York, taking the pooch with her.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dan John Miller?

    That would depend on the book. His portrayal of female characters in this book seemed forced, and the book should have been narrated by a woman since the main characters are female.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were several parts of the book that made me laugh.

    "Not Steel's Best"
    How could the performance have been better?

    Having a male read the story of four female roommates did nothing for the story.

    "entire book just a description"

    Bare scraps of dialogue, barely a story, what has happened to Steel? The entire book is just a description of whats happening not a story of the characters. In my life there has only been three books I couldn't bear to finish and this is one of them....

    Story
    "A fun read"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No, I primarily read it because I had not read anything by Danielle Steel before. I enjoyed it as a light story.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    There were some surprises I was not expecting. It was not as predictable as I thought it would be.


    Have you listened to any of Dan John Miller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't, but he did a great job with the accents and the women's voices.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, I would not.

    Story
    "One of her best."

    Danielle Steel is prolific. She has six books out this year and this one is one of the best I have read in the last few years.
    She is at her feel good best here with a familiar theme of four very different young women getting together to rent 'The Apartment' - a huge loft space in New York. The listener gets to know about their lives, jobs, families, boyfriends and the usual ups and downs occur. This book is beautifully crafted and kept me interested and entertained. If you like Danielle Steel you'll love this one, and the narrator was excellent. It took me away from my life for a weekend and I was bereft when it came to an end. Thanks Danielle. I look forward to the next one.

    Story
    "Not the most exciting of stories"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The plot needs to speed up and have more about it. It is slow, predictable and boring in several places as the same thing is said quite a few times.


    If you’ve listened to books by Danielle Steel before, how does this one compare?

    It is significantly more dull and doesn't have any real spark to it that engages with the reader because it is easy to guess what is going to happen.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Explored two of the relationships but with more depth, intrigue and substance to each character.


    Do you think The Apartment needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    NO! It would be so boring just catching up with the lives of the four females and their lives were not really exciting anyway.


    Any additional comments?

    Personally I felt it was a waste of a credit and had i paid full price I would have wondered what for!
