Would you try another book from Candace Bushnell and/or Sarah Drew?
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
3 1/2 stars. A totally guilty pleasure book for me. Fans of Sex & the City will enjoy this book.
The Carrie Diaries follows Carrie Bradshaw during her senior year of high school. She's exploring her path as a writer and a column in the high school paper helps her land her ultimate dream summer.
There is, of course, a boyfriend who gives her fits and causes her to constantly question herself as so many girls that age do. And there are her friends. The friends that have been friends for a long time until one of them does something completely unforgivable.
It was nice to find out where Carrie came from and learn about her family but I wanted more about her relationship with her father and her sisters. One of her sisters does get herself into some trouble.
I'm sure someone will object to the drinking and smoking in this book. It takes place in 1982 and 1983 when drinking was still legal for 18 year olds.
Candace Bushnell definitely left this open for a sequel and I'll definitely read one if it comes out.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Carrie Diaries to be better than the print version?
The book was a good listen, performance great, it doesn't have much to do with the Carrie Bradshaw we know and love from Sex and the City, didnt see a whole lot of connection but still entertaining
Unless you are under the age of 14, please save your money or your credits. This has nothing to with SATC. It is dire teenage drivel. I am having to wipe it from my ipod and my pc! Whiney and trite.
