I enjoyed this book a lot more than I expected, considering I'm male, and yes, straight. I like the way it's chopped up in bit size pieces. It's a good pick up for 10 minutes and then move back to another book kind of novel. Enjoy.

This is one of those times where the show is actually better than the book.

Hilarious! Candace Bushnell almost makes you feel like a single 30-something Manhattanite!

While Candace Bushnell's other novels were readable, I had a hard time with this one. I found it rather boring and shallow, more so than her other books.

I was surprised how loosely the show is based on the book. It definately makes the book worth while, since you don't automatically know the plot line or characters.

As a long time fan of the hit television series, I must admit I was dissapointed by the disconnect between the show and the book. Perhaps had I read the book first and watched the show after that my opinion would be different. I kept reading looking for the characteristics and personalities of my favorite characters to show, but never really found them. I would recommend this book to anyone who has not watched and fallen in love with the television series, as it is still a good read.

This is a fun romp in New York City with the author's characters.
From reading the many reviews of this book here it seems many are dissapointed because the book is not exactly the same as the tv show. But the tv show took liberties with the book .
If you keep in mind that the book stands on it's own even though there are differences to the show then it is a fun read.

Not as great as some of Candace Bushnell's other books.
