Summer Reads: The Apartment

Plot:

They come together by chance in the heart of New York City, four young women at turning points in their lives. Claire finds the spacious loft apartment. But the aspiring shoe designer needs at least one roommate to manage the rent. She meets Abby, a writer trying to make it on her own, far from her successful family in L.A. Then Morgan joins them. She’s ambitious, with a serious finance job on Wall Street. Finally Sasha, a medical student. And so the sprawling space, with its exposed brick and rich natural light, becomes a home to friends about to embark on new exhilarating adventures.

Their shared life in the apartment turns them into a family of beloved friends. But as unexpected opportunities and challenges alter the course of each of their lives, they face the bittersweet reality that in time, they will inevitably move away from the place where their dreams began . . .

Review:

Want a good drinking game to play while reading this ? Take a shot every time Danielle Steel starts a sentence with ‘and’. The more I read, the more it drove me crazy.

Not much happens in the book until 3/4th the way through. Maybe that’s typical Danielle Steel, this is the first one I’ve read. But everything is perfect and the day was fabulous and every one loved every one. And If that’s what you enjoy then I suppose this might be a good book. Steel also repeats a lot of the same things, as if we forgot she wrote it two pages ago.

The book did pick up for a couple of chapters so I will increase my rate to 2.5. Overall, doubt I’ll read another Danielle Steel

The only redeeming quality about this book were the characters, they were real and made human decisions for the most part…others were obviously just there to move the basic plot along. 2.5/5 stars.
