This review is from: The Carrie Diaries (Hardcover)
Candace Bushnell is one of my favorite fiction authors, and I think I would have liked this book better if she had created a new character for a teen series, rather than turn Carrie into a less complex character to appeal to a younger demographic. Fans of the original Sex and the City novel and show may not be as intrigued with this one, as it's really more for younger women, and there is nothing about the Carrie we've come to know and love that shines through in this book. To be frank, it's a bit vapid and focuses a lot on shallow teenage issues ("I can't believe she stole my boyfriend! I'm going to torture her at school."). Just something to think about if you are used to Sex and the City. It's definitely not bad, but I really don't think Bushnell did Carrie (or herself) justice.

I must be the only person who does not care at all for the character Carrie Bradshaw. All through the show she was obtuse, self absorbed, clueless and her own worst enemy. The teenage version comes off just as stupid. I like Candace Bushnells other books and I want to like her but if Carrie Bradshaw is based on her well...........
