Teenage Carrie shows all of the most irritating traits of grown-up Carrie with very few of the redeeming features. She's an egocentric, entitled brat prone to cheesy puns and wordplay. I really liked the first book in this series, but Carrie becomes insufferable the moment she begins her NY life. And she's 17! Her adventures in this book are not that different from what she gets up to on the show at age 35. Every time she noted that she's 17 I was kind of surprised.

I really liked teen Miranda, though. ( )

A fun summer read.

I read the first few pages one day, then read the rest of the book one afternoon. Picking up shortly where the first book left off, Carrie has arrived in New York and is heading off to her first party with Samantha.

As a Sex and the City fan it was a lot of fun seeing how the girls all come together and how different they are as teens from the icons they grow into. Samantha didn't disappoint, it was interesting to see her earlier years in a way I didn't really expect. Though I have to admit when Miranda first appeared she annoyed the hell out of me. She did grow on me more as the story developed. Carrie was pretty much just Carrie pretty much unchanged from the first book. Would have liked to see more of young Charlotte and how she came to fit into newly formed group of growing friendships.

She did grow up quite a lot throughout, and I had the idea she had a set plan on how everything in New York would work out, but nothing of course went as it was planned. People she knew from her home town made appearances and things changed in unexpected ways.

I loved the sense of New York in the book, so easy to picture, a real sense of place making you feel like you were really there. Nothing particularly dramatic or remarkable really seemed to happen plot wise. It was just a fun, enjoyable read. Perfect for an afternoon escape.

Also crosses off a square for my Summer Bingo reading challenge - A pink cover ( )

In this sequel to The Carrie Diaries, right after Carrie Bradshaw graduates high school (sometime in the early 1980s) and before she is expected to attend Brown University, she spends her first summer in New York City taking a writing course. Carrie encounters several minefields along the way, including a romance with a playwright 15 years her senior. She also encounters some gems as well: her first new friend Samantha Jones helps Carrie get out of several scrapes. Plus she also finds another good friend in Miranda Hobbes. Where's Charlotte? Carrie meets her at the very end of this book, hopefully making way for another installment. Enjoyable book especially if you are a Sex and the City fan: I was able to picture Carrie, Samantha, and Miranda just like on TV, only about 20 years earlier. Just like on the TV show, plenty of explicit scenes and innuendo, as well as drugs and booze. ( )

I loved the TV series (much to the disbelief and horror of everyone I know), and was therefore disappointed with the first 'Sex and the City' book which the series was very loosely based on. The novel lacked the charm and humour of the programmes. I do think Bushnell however is improving with each novel, spot-on with the nuances of social interaction and satirically nailing the narrow strand of society she writes about.

In Summer and the City it appeared she had absorbed the characters from the TV series, and therefore gave a very believable and entertaining prequel, and left me wanting to read more. ( )

Again, I'll start by saying that I am an admitted Sex and the City virgin and have never watched a single episode, so what may be old news for some, was new for me!

Book two of this series was MUCH more enjoyable than the first. I felt like I was reading about 'grown-ups' rather than kids and that was much nicer... appealing to my adult self.

Carrie Bradshaw's Sex and the City character came to life in this book. I could actually see Sarah Jessica Parker playing her and started to realize why I haven't fallen head over heels in love with the show. She is an annoying person. Her constant need for reassurance, her over-inflated ego, and her horrible sense of style all irritated me throughout this book. Even though my love for Carrie didn't come full-bloom, I really did enjoy the story.

One of the parts of the story that I enjoyed, while finding extremely unbelievable, was Carrie's rise-to-fame. How awesome would it be to venture to the 'Big City' and become an instant 'in' at every big industry party; Falling in love with a play-write and having him return your affections; Meeting a famous literary agent who actually likes your work. If I had known that it would be THAT easy, I would have made the trip to the city a LOOOOOONG time ago.

Character development is definitely a strong suit for Candace Bushnell. It was fun to follow the beginnings of Samantha Jones and Miranda Hobbes... and eventually, I imagine Charlotte. Through her words, a 'posse' is born.

Overall, I enjoyed reading the book. I would definitely read the follow up story, but am still undecided on whether I will ever really watch the series. Who knows, there may be a rainy day when I don't have a book on hand - ya, right - and I might JUST flip on an episode... MIGHT! ( )
