Being a die hard Sex and The City Fan, I ordered the book as soon as I heard it was available for pre-order.

If you haven't seen the movie and you want to remain unspoiled, do not get this book until after you have seen it... It follows the film's story chronologically containing many spoilers.

If you are a huge Sex and The City fan, like myself, this book is a must have. Not only is it an excellent recap of the movie, but it also provides a look into the making of the movie, and the actresses thoughts on the film and reviving these characters.

The book is loaded with photographs including a spread of the many outfits the ladies wore through out the movie (all of which were gorgeous!) and many beautiful pictures of the cast.

With that said, one might think the book is Perfection, however it does have a flaw or two...

The section of the book that follows the story line of the movie (which is on the top of each page) feels like it is written in the fashion of a children's picture book, almost reminding me of a fairy tale. Since it's simply written, it does leave you feeling a little unfulfilled. But we must remember, it's not a novelization of the film, so the simply written style is perfectly fitting.

the other flaw in this book is that there are mention to a few scenes in the movie that were cut out. That leaves you thinking "huh, I don't remember that happening". For a minute I thought that when I saw the movie in theaters I must have been in such awe that I missed parts of the movie, but after asking my fiancee about said missing scenes, we arrived to the conclusion they must have been edited out... which is disappointing, but they will always be in the deleted scenes section of the DVD!

Other than those small flaws, the book is a fabulous addition to any single city girl's (or Sex and the City fan's) home library.

Okay, I'm a guy (gay albeit, but still a guy), and I'm a huge SATC fan. Imagine that. If you believed the current media reports, apparently I'm the only guy in America that actually has gone to see the fabulous SATC movie. Because apparently, only women are going to see this movie. Only women. So, that means, only women are going to purchase the fun soundtrack Sex And The City: Music From the Original Motion Picture, as well as this fun, fun book that accompanies the movie.

I received this book for my forty-second birthday as a surprise birthday present, and what a surprise it is! The book has two purposes: recounting the movie, and giving insider "behind the scene" accounts from the creator Michael Patrick King and the four principal actresses. King tells of his process of writing the script of the movie (starting out at a whopping 365 oages!), and cutting and narrowing down the movie to it's now present 2 hour and 15 minute length. He makes note of what was cut (Charlotte's braless nanny and Carrie actually dating someone she named Mr. Bigger), as well as his goal for the movie.

What's truly fun about the book is it's practically a scene by scene telling of the movie, laced with plenty of your favorite direct quotes directly from the film. One of the hallmarks of the show is how quotable it is. This book has them all, including one of my favorite lines in the film (which won't be revealed here to avoid too many spoilers!) about an unfortunate incident that Charlotte has.

So, people around the country are shocked ... let me repeat that ... SHOCKED that a "chick flick" is actually doing well in the theaters.

For those that have Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell, Updated Edition the companion book for the TV Series, this new volume that covers the movie is a must have. The design of this new hardcover is obviously by the same team that created "Kiss and Tell"; this new book is lavishly illustrated with large photos from both behind-the-scenes and the finished movie. The photos are exquisite and colorful, albeit a little over-enhanced (the area under the stars' eyes are airbrushed to the point that there are NO lines and NO pouch at all; just unnaturally flat. who did the awful retouching? In some photos the main stars just look plain fake). And that is my one beef with this book, and it's a minor one. Just the fact that the Vogue wedding-gown photos are included here makes up for it (interesting to learn here that the Vogue crew was used to make this photo-shoot for the movie as authentic as possible, even to the point of getting Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour's approval).

An interesting recap of what it took to get this tale on the big-screen is included (getting Carrie's original desk from the series out of the Smithsonian for filming!); and you will learn how the paparazzi made a definite annoyance of themselves during filming, causing Michael Patrick King to get very creative so that key plot elements would stay a surprise. For newbies to the TV series and those who are nostalgic for it, there is also a recap of each of the six seasons, complete with photos.

The story of the movie is told in big beautiful photos and a minimum of text; most of the film's memorably classic lines are included ("Here's to the groom--a man who finally got 'Carrie-d' away").
