One Fifth Avenue has ratings and reviews. Jessica said: Don’t do it. Don’t spring the cash for the hardcover of Sex and the City creator Can. Like a big-ticket, glossy new offering on Wednesdays at 10 p.m., Candace Bushnell’s new novel, “One Fifth Avenue,” trains its sharp and. It was only a part in a TV series, and only a one-bedroom apartment in New York. But parts of any kind, much less decent ones, were hard to.

In this book, it’s real estate. I guess there is, but it’s very poorly done. Jan 01, Stephanie rated it really liked it.

One Fifth Avenue – Wikipedia

I found the character of Lola particularly annoying and kept hoping that someone would push her down an elevator shaft or hit her in the head with a shovel even though I knew this was not a murder mystery. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Overall, a good, easy read. I was a bit bushnel after reading “Sex and the City” Most of the characters were unlikeable, spoiled rich people.


It’s surely not a great work of literature, but I enjoyed it. The degree of shannigans in the novel was beyond belief! Even though Paul Rice is supposed to be a child-hating villain, I felt it was an injustice to allow the kid to get away with vandalism and what could have been disasterous if Rice had been working with national security issues.

I had a problem in the beginning keeping all of the inhabitants and want to be inhabitants of One Fifth Avenue straight.


The players include octogenarian gossip columnist Enid Merle, her successful screenwriter nephew Philip Oakland, and the embittered middle-aged head of the co-op board, Mindy Gooch. However, I keep buying them, so here we go Does anyone have any questions for Candace? I’d assumed, based on Sex and the City being in her back catalogue that this would have some diversity in the female characters, but something that brings them together. It makes me wonder what the point of the novel was.

But when one is abroad and at a train station trying to purchase a book, the options are few and far between. From Enid’s immediate dislike to Lola to Mindy’s pursuing bushhell her own blog, there is absolutely nothing interesting here. It is really a social commentary about real estate, the rich, how people will do almost anything to keep people from knowing what is wrong with their marraiges and lives.

When the importance was finally bushnepl, it wasn’t that significant and I figured out the twist. Audiobook5 pages. You’ll feel about the same stomach pain if you waste your time reading this book.

This appears to be the case here. My favorite character was Annalisa Rice because she had the avenuue compassion for others. This book is smart and lets you in the lives of the rich and famous, a realistic tale of their lives. Her characters were all snotty and uninteresting to me and I think my IQ level went down a few hundred points I am baffled that there are people that actually live their lives in such a supercilious manner towards others just because they have more money.


But that’s why this is a work of fiction, and if you take it as such, it won’t bug you so much! Bushnell’s description of wealth aevnue seems a far cry from reality.

Will I ever read a book by Candace Bushnell again? It all adds up to a juicy summer read. Dec 21, Summer rated it did not like it.

I thought this book would be terrible as I’m not a fan of Bushnell. Why exactly would Schiffer want fifty who cannot make decisions for himself? On that level, the book sets a tone of desperation, because nothing ever seems quite enough. I am also baffled that people can actually spend that much money on objects and luxuries.

I’ve never been in a building like that, but I’ve lived in places where the development board is super strict and can be bribed and swayed into making certain decisions.

View all 4 comments. I absolutely loved both books in the Carrie Diaries, but this book along with Sex and the City are books I couldn’t get into. I don’t buy Philip’s excuse that she bushnepl too flighty; if anything, this could describe Philip himself.
