Detailed Review Summary of 4 Blondes by Candace Bushnell

Feb 21, Madeline Lund rated it really liked it. Views Read Edit View history. I usually enjoy stories where the characters are linked and that would have redeemed this book just a little but the way she did it really just kind of annoyed me more than anything Jul 23, Marta rated it did not like it Shelves: She thinks that the sensible thing to do buahnell to go back to New York without him, leaving him behind, possibly missing her chance at a marriage, at love, etc.

Janey’s shameless ambition, her hard headed cool determination to get whatever she wants – at any cost – wins through.

Janey is a sometime model who is looking to become rich and famous. For example, bushnelll a whole story about a fashion model with no work skills and no formal education at all who is “shocked” that her equally brainless baby sister would marry a rock star — because supposedly rock stars are “beneath” jet-set fashion models.

Perhaps it deserves some kind of recognition at the very least for the entertai And now we have a real dilemma: Novel is something that is beyond her writing range. I did not like this book and would not recommend it to anyone At first Janey is uninterested in Selden and is instead enamored with Zizi, a young Argentinian polo player with model looks and the countenance of a member of the European elite.

Every time he finishes a piece, he’s scared he won’t get another one. You see this book was pretty shallow as well. Janey’s only concrete talent is her ability to slink into the affections of a man with a large summer house in the Hamptons, where she will be invited to spend the season as his mistress.

So, we now have the right to eat macaroons as bushenll please, and women from every social strata can prostitute themselves freely – yipee! It is fine book if you look at it as whole, but when you try to take it in to the pieces and think about it too much it started to be dull and over cliched. I bought the 4 Blondes and I was not disappointed the style was crisp and very observing.

Paradoxically, of course this being a storyas soon as the narrator claims to have given up the romantic dream and affirmed her own worth without a man, she goes ahead and meets one. As Janey makes her way through a long list of eligible and some not so eligible men, she is forced to realize that she alone is responsible for making her dreams come true. Jun 24, Kelly rated it did not like it Shelves: I wanted the big, great, inspiring story about an unmarried career woman who goes to London on assignment and meets the man of her dreams and marries him.

God, I was so fickle. You can read this book in approximately 3 hours and be none the wiser. You don’t care about the characters, but almost sort of want them to wander into city traffic and get run over.
