    Ouch ouch my soulPlease don't misunderstand I like vanilla cupcakes top heavy with fluffy pink frosting as much as the next guy That's why the show is a longstanding guilty pleasure of mine The difference between the show and the book is that while acuisitive status obsessed party monsters with less depth than a paper cut comprise the bulk of the characters on the show as in the book the show manages to flesh them out into comically fallible three dimensional human beings who even if you find them repugnant you can find weirdly fascinating and feel empathy toward The book not so much I had to read several passages multiple times because it was difficult to stay sufficiently engaged to pay attention 'It's cute It's light You know It's not Tolstoy''I'm not trying to be Tolstoy' Carrie said But of course she wasIf Carrie Bradshaw really is the author's alter ego you have to wonder I would have settled for Fitzgerald But these portraits of the power hungry the socially climbing and the upwardly mobile aren't Gatsbyesue They're ghastly Upon finishing this book I felt like I'd consumed a dozen pink frosted cupcakes I apologized to my system for inundating it with crap and promised myself that I would eat vegetables And read Tolstoy

    There are very few books I uit reading even if I don't like them because I am compelled with book guilt most of the time I did not make it through this All I can say is the writers for the HBO series REALLY had some vision because the show was about 4000 times better than the book

  3. Jill Jill says:

    This was ridiculous It was incredibly self indulgent and trite It's incredible that someone read this collection of articles and said Hey Let's turn this into a wildly funny intelligent and timely series that will win Emmys and Jill's Heart Avoid the book rent the series

  4. Katie Katie says:

    I think I read this right after the show first started on HBO The book is nowhere near as entertaining as the showit doesn't have the 4 girlfriends on the town approach that the show takes; instead it just focuses on some caricature of a stupid New York type that I hate the ones who live here like it's LA with bad weatherIf I had read this before I watched any of the episodes I never would have turned on the show

  5. Christy Christy says:

    This book is nothing like the show which I adore I couldn't make it past 50 pages of this book I was so bored Candace Bushnell is so impressed with herself and that's pretty much what her books are about There was no plot or substance to hold my interest

  6. Nicole Nicole says:

    This is certainly different from the series and it's not just the mounds of cocaine and pounds of marijuana consumed by the main charactersThe selling point of the series has always been the friendships between the four characters In this book on the other hand it's every girl for herself The women are never supportive and are usually backstabbing Carrie is even of a mess than she ever was in the TV show Everyone seems utterly miserableAlso? Allegedly this is uproariously funny but I didn't laugh once while reading itNot sure how they got the TV series out of this book The two seem very tangentially related

    I seem to be one of the rare ones here but I am a fan of the show who actually enjoyed this book I decided to read it not because I thought there would be something new and exciting to behold or because I was expecting a riveting entrancing novel Rather because I was curious about the origins of the characters and plotlines in one of my favorite television series Most of the stories from the first season of the tv show are lifted from this book However some of the characters are different in the book Charlotte is not the preppy friend of Carrie but rather the love jaded English woman we only see in the pilot episode of the show The book doesn't focus on Carrie and her friends from Carrie's perspective rather it is told by an outside narrator and focuses on several different people I also liked seeing a new dimension to Carrie; she is still as neurotic as ever but also a little sarcastic and we learn of her childhood in Connecticut humble beginnings in New York not able to afford furniture so she sleeps on a foam sheet covered by her only possession a mink coat and even get to meet her parents Overall an entertaining read for fans of the Sex and the City television show

    “As long as you're neurotic and crazy he's great But once he solves all your problems he becomes the problem” ― Candace Bushnell Sex and the CityBelieve it or not this is not a bad book It is even funny in some partsThe book is nothing at all like the show in case you don't know the book is strictly about CarrieWellthere are other characters including Mr Big but none of the other three womenThere are all different stories in here mostly about the dating scene So these are my honest thoughtsWant to stop WANTING to date? Read this book Honestly I never wanted to have another date again after reading this That does not mean it is not presented realisticallyit kind of is But so clinically Man it just made me want to eat a uart of ice cream and curl up with my catsThere is a very clinical almost emotionless aspect to the whole book But for whatever reasonI kept reading And some chapters were entertaining as anything I loved Peter screaming about how all women really want is Alec Baldwin This is worth a read just for thatSadly I read another book by same author after this and disliked it But this is a light and fun readperfect beach reading and will even amuse you at times

    Readers If you pick this book to readthen treat it as a book to read It is not a serial Nor is this Chic Lit material What it is is a very mature and advanced version of relationships people women sexualitywhat I enjoyed about this book was the way it was disconnected from emotionsbut revealed emotions ultimately Candace Bushnell has put in a lot of thought in developing a variety of characters from Mr Big to Mr Marvelousher style is uniue imaginative yet with all the elements of reality I wouldn't rate this as a favorite but would rate it as a book to be readif you want to understand the politics of men and women sexuality and importantly life in a busy citythe book does not have the famous 'Carrie' as we would like it to be when you watch the serial The serial I feel is for the massesthe book for those who are interested in lifeREAD IT for sureIgnore the comparisons between the serial and the bookif you are looking for a descriptive of the serialthen read the script of the serialnot the bookAtta girl Candace Bushnellrare is a work of art like your's appreciated in today's world
