I am a voracious reader with fairly eclectic taste. I like both fiction and non-fiction, biography, history and current events. I like well written mysteries and suspense and I love 19th and 20th century classical literature as well as modern fiction. My favorite author is Philip Roth but I also love Trollope, Hardy, Jonathan Franzen, Jane Austen and Edith Wharton. My favorite biographer is Robert Caro.

    Meet "Carrie", the quintessential young writer looking for love in all the wrong places; "Mr. Big", the business tycoon who drifts from one relationship to another; "Samantha Jones", the 40-ish, successful, "testosterone woman" who uses sex like a man; not to mention "Psycho Moms", "Bicycle Boys", "International Crazy Girls", and the rest of the New Yorkers who inspired one of the most watched TV series of our time. You've seen them on HBO, now listen to the book that started it all.

    "Loved the TV show, great narrator, unbearable book"
    Overall

    I was a big fan of "Sex in the City" on HBO, Cynthia Nixon is a GREAT narrator and enticed me to listen to this awful book much longer than I would have for any other narrator, but this book was SO AWFUL I COULD NOT ENDURE IT....and I am a HUGE audiobook fan.....JUST AWFUL.

    I can see the seeds of what became a great TV show (and I am not a big TV watcher) but I admire the writers and actors of the HBO production about a million times more now that I know what they had to work with originally.....
