SEX AND THE CITY BY CANDACE BUSHNELL

First off, the TV show is MUCH better than the book in terms of character development, extended story lines and basically…..everything else. Not saying the book was horrible, but it’s not the greatest literary novel I’ve ever read. If you’re looking for a girly poolside read (quite like Cosmo, but in novel form), then I recommend it. If you live under a rock or uncultured, “Sex and the City” mainly focuses on Carrie (a writer) and her experiences with love in the Big Apple. What I admired was how relatable the chapters were in terms of the trials and tribulations Carrie had to face. Within the first few pages she learns, “relationships in New York is all about detachment.” Much like real life, if a young man lives in the city, is incredibly handsome and successful.. he is most likely not looking for a serious relationship. Women make the mistake of falling hard for these types, which often lead to a broken heart, bottomless pits of wine and a dash of hostile feelings. I agree …
