He is aided in this odyssey by Saskia, a smart, hard-partying year-old economics student whom he met at a gallery opening. In the new world order, Mr. When there is violence, the narrator is either remembering it, imagining it, or watching it from a far remove; when there is drama, it has usually happened in some distant past. But despite the lack of incident, the novel exerts a hypnotic force.
One of Mr. But midway in the conversation, Early drops the accent and turns off the tunes. I didn't notice any elements of that either. It was tedious and so unrealistically and nauseously romantic. This was my first time reading Danielle Steel and it will probably be my last if this is her writing style. Looking at my to-be-read stack of books, I feel like I just wasted an entire afternoon.

An enjoyable summer beach read. Sep 11, Amy rated it it was ok. 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. 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 w Want a good drinking game to play while reading this?
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. Overall, doubt I'll read another Danielle Steel. View 1 comment. Review of the audio book, read by Dan John Miller. I don't expect much out of Danielle Steel these days, her books are a guilty pleasure that I typically enjoy but are not brain tingling. I don't rush to read one of her books immediately when it comes out.

That said The Apartment is the worst Steel book I've ever read. It was like I was listening to a book where the author was just trying to make a certain word count. The first two chapters did nothing but restate the same informatio Review of the audio book, read by Dan John Miller. The first two chapters did nothing but restate the same information over and over, just in a different way.
The following chapters weren't much better. One would think, with as many books that Steel has under her belt, she would do better than this. I'm also disappointed that her editor didn't do a better job. The only redeeming quality about this book were the characters, they were real and made human decisions for the most part I also didn't like that a male reader was reading this book to me. Dan John Miller did decently enough but the book centered around 4 women, it would have made more sense to have a female reader. I realize that readers are probably paid a decent wage, making it difficult to pay more than one reader but this book would have benefitted from having both.
Aug 01, Laura Rash rated it really liked it. Reading any of her books is like eating comfort food to me. This one didn't disappoint. I've read quite a few books by Daniel Steel with Power Play being my top favourite. Four girls that share an apartment , but I think that it would have been nice if each girl character had their own heading on a chapter about ones life etc. I did get a little confused with a bit too many characters. I also would have liked the boyfriends to have had their own chapter instead of all the scenes of characters being mixed about in one chapter.
I think I need to re read this again sometime and perhap I've read quite a few books by Daniel Steel with Power Play being my top favourite. I think I need to re read this again sometime and perhaps I will get into it more. I love my Danielle steel books so much that I would'nt never give up reading books by Daniel Steel. In fact I've just bought one more with hopes to buy more. May 07, Richelle Robinson rated it really liked it. I haven't read Danielle Steel in a few years and it was just what I needed.
See a Problem?
I fell in love with her writing all over again. Fans of her earlier novels will love this one! It had everything she is known for and it was a perfect feel good story and everything works out in the end. Was sad to see this story end. Perfect story if you need something light to make you feel good. Jul 26, Elena rated it did not like it. The most poorly-written book I have ever had the displeasure of purchasing on a whim. The awful grammar, poor sentence structure and everything else made me more stupid, I'm sure of it.
Had to read Tolstoy immediately afterwards to try to regain some smarts, and that was not fun. May 19, Courtney rated it did not like it. Fun fact: This was my first and last Danielle Steel novel. Aug 04, Kim rated it really liked it. I happened to see this one at my library and checked it out. I'm glad I did! May 13, Cassandra rated it it was ok. This is hands down the most boring book I've ever read.ponsotalcomp.cf
Nothing mildly interesting happens until Chapter 7 pages in! As someone who's actually lived in Manhattan for the past two years I can tell you this book is entirely unrealistic: First off none of these girls with the exception of Morgan have jobs that would pay enough to afford a huge loft in Hell's Kitchen even if they found it 10 years ago. Second, none of them fight with each oth This is hands down the most boring book I've ever read. Second, none of them fight with each other and are cool with everything that goes down in the apartment.
There is absolutely no way possible that after living with each other for a couple of years that they wouldn't fight with each other at least once. Third, everything that happens in this book is one big fantasy.
I'm not going to spoil anything, but the way the author has the characters interact with each other plays out way too perfectly and is utterly predictable. If you want an utter fantasy that has absolutely nothing to do with New York City then by all means read this book. If you're like me and want a book about the trials and tribulations of girls trying to make it in New York City, then please skip this book.
You will be disappointed. Jun 03, Mala Ashok rated it liked it. If you said an apartment is the main character in this book you would not be wrong. Four young women share an apartment and the novel tells us about a period in their lives.

Since this involves their boy friends, bosses, and parents too the plot gets quite complicated. All the loose ends are tied and one leaves the book at the end feeling satisfied. Not a great book but if you want some light reading go for it. May 05, Melissa rated it really liked it. Typical Danielle Steel book. You can always guess what's going to happen. They're repetitive and predictable. The writing isn't great. The books take no time at all to read. But there's always a happy ending.
