Book Description

Sep 2003

To everyone who's anyone in New York City Victory Ford, Wendy Healy and Nico O'Neilly are the beautiful face of success in the city. Victory is the hottest new designer on the block, Wendy is President of Parador Pictures with a sure-fire hit in production and Nico is the editor of BONFIRE magazine.

The trouble is, from where Victory, Nico and Wendy are standing things don't look quite that way. Nico is fitting in guilty extra-marital sex with an underwear model. Victory's last collection bombed and Wendy's twelve-year marriage to her metrosexual househusband is in freefall.

Candace Bushnell's new heroines are irresistible, and as she follows them through the minefield of work, love and life at the top she gives us a hugely entertaining lesson on how to stay ahead in the toughest town on the planet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining easy reading 3 Nov 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Lipstick Jungle brings to light a world of women who have worked hard to make it in their chosen profession. This is an entertaining story about ambition, power, success, failers and most of all friendship. The characters are portrayed as strong powerful women with fantastic jobs but what is not left behind is a glimpse into their vunerable side. I found this book difficult to put down, it has its moments when you just need to know what happens next. An Inspiring easy read...

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Read!!!! 15 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I heard about this book a month ago and bought it as soon as it came out-two days ago. I was not disappointed. This book is fun, fun, fun, and, unlike most chick-lit books, gets better and better as it goes along. My favorite scenes were when Wendy finds out that she's not going to be able to get full custody of her kids, and when her husband tells her that he doesn't love her anymore. Not to mention the shrink Wendy's husband hires to "save" their marriage. Bushnell has a way of making these incredibly painful scenes real and funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved, Loved, Loved This Book!!!!!! 15 Sep 2005
By Lena - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My favorite thing about this book it that I, and also each of my friends, have picked out a favorite character. Wendy, Nico, and Victory are all such vibrant, interesting, and very different women. My favorite is Victory. She is independent and owns her own company, something I want for myself one day. She's fiercely creative, and she always speaks her mind, even when it gets her in trouble. She's such a quirky and unique personality that I feel so personally close to. I can understand her, especially when she realizes that she pushes men away because she is afraid of getting too close to them. When she realized this I felt like I was realizing it for the first time too. This is one of those rare books that can make you think about your own life in a new way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book About Real Issues 15 Sep 2005
By Bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I loved this book! I felt that Candace wasn't afraid to tackle some major issues, mainly the idea of happiness. Happiness is such a critical puzzle, and its ingredients shift (and deepen in complexity) with age. I also loved that Candace showed how wisdom and opportunity have truly, finally, turned the tables on so many of the old feminist struggles, and old sexual clichés, without solving them per se.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST YET 7 Sep 2005
By Mojo Saves - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is easily Bushnell's best novel yet. She manages to paint a fascinating picture of powerful women and does so without making them all witches. The 3 heroines are complex and, despite their successes, are not without their own problems that humanize them and make them accessible and likeable. Buy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great escape 6 Sep 2005
By a fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a wonderfully engrossing story of three high-powered career women in New York City. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. It's filled with all the delicious little details and insights into the social scene that make you feel like an insider even if you aren't. With all that's going on in the country right now, I was greatful to escape into this novel. Very highly recommended!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lipstick Jungle is a dazzling read. 7 Sep 2005
By gig walsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered my copy and I couldn't put it down, Candace Bushnell is our 21st Century Edith Wharton. The relationships between the women transcend the model of many contemporary novels. The story is engaging, inspiring, wildly entertaining and quite funny. The author has a razor sharp wit and she draws you in on the first page.
