Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He's a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You're hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

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.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Not sure

What was most disappointing about Candace Bushnell’s story?

I was disapointed that this book neither follows the "Carrie Dairies" series nor the television show. It was hard to follow because the charecters were different...Sammatha Jones was a "Urban Legend" not a friend of Carrie's, as she is in both the "Carrie Dairies" and the television show. Carrie was one of the four friends but all the others were different, I was just really dissapointed because I had loved the show and enjoyed the "Carrie Dairies" seeing how it all began, this book had very little to do with either story making this book hard to follow and I swear it went on and on and on...as I waited for the connection.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cynthia Nixon?

Not sure

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment and an aching in my wallet where the money I paid for that used to be...
