3.0 out of 5 stars Escapism Not Literature., 24 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Career Girls (Mass Market Paperback)
I discovered today that this title is just about to be re-released on July 12th 2007 to attract a new generation of readers as originally published in 1995. The copy I have just finished reading was a 1998 reissue, so it must have sold well then and I am sure will do so again.

However it escapes me now why I actually wanted to read this title, as it is neither current nor a classic. This is an author that I am not familiar with this being the first I have read by her. I have two others on my bookshelf waiting to be read that she wrote in 2004 and 2005 respectively and I am hoping her writing will have improved with experience? This scenario was just a little too unrealistic for my liking, chick-lit with a heavy dose of sex and brand obsession!

The story line is a fairly familiar one, two heroines Rowena and Topaz best friends at university until a man gets in the way of the friendship. Rivalry and revenge replaces the friendship! Over the next decade as they both make unbelievably successful careers they are continually trying to bring one another down.

I did enjoy it enough to still want to read the other titles I have though!

Escapism not literature!
