I cried when this book ended, because I wasn't going to get to hear anymore about the lives of the amazing characters, whom I'd grown to feel like I knew and loved. The story was amazingly written, sad, hopeful, inspiring, and humbling. The actors who portrayed the women in the book were fantastic, and I feel lucky that I listened to this book, rather than read it in print, because I really think something magical would have been lost without being able to hear the voices of the women. I still miss this story, weeks after finishing it--it was one of the most moving books I've read to date. Do not hesitate to download this book!
I'm only half way through this book, but I don't think my reaction to it will change as I finish listening. I'd never read Candace Bushnell before, so maybe it's typical of her books, but the tone of this book is very pretentious. Perhaps its because of the subject matter, but it's a bit off putting. I think the narrator's faux British accent contributes, too. The book isn't brilliant, but it is light weight reading if you don't feel like doing much heavy lifting on your commute.
