“Maybe it's because I watched Sex & The City and fell in love with it that inspired my reaction to this book. Who knows. I absolutely could not stand this book. I did manage to finish it, but it was highly disappointing to me. Unlike the television show I found the characters, particularly Carrie,...”see full review » see other reviews »
“The TV show was much better. Book does contain some good lines but they are few & far between. I recommend watching the series & skip this book!”Robin636 wrote this review Monday, February 11, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Absolutely hated this book almost from the very beginning.
Having watched the odd episode of the TV series and liked what I saw at the time (late 90's) I was thoroughly surprised to find that there was nothing in this book that appealed to me. It literally iis what it says on the cover and I'm not interested. Where is Carrie with her crazy ways and gorgeous style? I'll tell you where she is, shes mixed in with the trash about threesomes and the low down on the models/whores and there isn't one ounce of her personality that resembles the fun loving girl I know from the show.
Now ok, I'll admit that I could only read the first 80 or so pages before I really wanted to burn this book (and me a Bibliophile!!) So i cannot say that it doesn't pick up towards the end, that the best parts the TV show extracted from this piece of garbage don't turn up sooner or later but all I can say is this: If you have the time don't waste it on this trash, watch the show instead!”
