Enter a world where the sometimes shocking and often hilarious mating habits of the privileged are exposed by a true insider. In essays drawn from her witty and sometimes brutally candid column in the New York Observer, Candace Bushnell introduces us to the young and beautiful who travel in packs from parties to bars to clubs. 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 fortyish, 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 have inspired one of the most watched TV series of our time. You've seen them on HBO, now read the book that started it all...

If you're hoping to read the book version of the TV series, you will be very disappointed. There are some story lines that also appear in the series, and some of the characters show up, but the core of the series (the relationship between Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte) is not there at all.

Not the greatest book ever written and I just couldnt believe that there was a series made from this book. Make no mistake, I totally loved the series, however, the book was difficult to read. It could have been formattted in a easier to read .... but I did get a few chuckles from it. Crazy I know!!

This wasn't what I thought it was, the Carrie in this book is such a bit player.

The television series and the movie are SO much better than this barren, disingenuous, and fragmented novel.

interesting, sometimes raunchy. Not anything like the tv series. Worth reading. Lipstick jungle was better.
