2.0 out of 5 stars An uneasy read for an easy topic, 31 Mar 2008
This review is from: Sushi for Beginners (Paperback)
'Sushi for begginers' is a story around three women and their interractions with eachother and the outside characters.
I found the book a big push to read, as in it did not captivate me enough until the final chapters. It took too long to build up and some chapters were just to skip.
The characters are not well developed, which is mostly the case for Lisa, which is a mixed-signal character all the way. The main character is ok,though i never got why some things happened and why some didn't for her, as in there are no lessons learnt, or no real human nature tricks. Things happen because they happen, and that is just not good enough for somebody who claims to be an insightfull author.
I find, for example, Candace Bushnell's Lipstik jungle (also centered around three women) a lot better and having more complex characters and interesting story lines.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sex and the City meets Eliade, 25 Jun 2007
This review is from: The Romantic Movement (Paperback)
This combines Candace Bushnell with Eliade and maybe Shaw. The main character, Alice, seems to be an ordinary girl, getting involved in an ordinary relationship and asking herself the ordinary questions. However, the randomness of the moments analized with such delicacy and insight into the female thoughts, insecurities and desire for a perfect complementary male make it an exceptional read. This is Sex and the City, without the glamour and with more philosophy and depth to it. It could use some more action, though i did not necesarily feel the lack of it while reading the book.I could not help but relate to the circumstances and sometimes reactions of the character, her mood swings, her unispired moments as well as her struggle not to settle in an emotional vacuum. Alain de Botton could frankly be the best lunch date author!

5.0 out of 5 stars love it, 12 Nov 2006
I loved the book: Posh gives good recommendations and relates to a girl's daily struggle to find the perfect outfit for all sorts of occasions. It's like having coffee with her and discussing style..

i love her references and she knows what she is talking about. Well done for the team that helped her put the book together, thumbs up!

i hate it how it became fashionable to criticize just about evth that has to do with Posh: her size, her hair, now her face and etc.. Well, i admire all of those!She's got fine hair and beautiful eyes and she is a winner. She's not a worse singer than Britney Spears, and in no way less attractive than J.Lo, if it comes down to per se competition..
