From the Back Cover

The Carrie Diaries is the coming-of-age story of one of the most iconic characters of our generation.

Before Sex And The City, Carrie Bradshaw was a small-town girl who knew she wanted more. She's ready for real life to start, but first she must navigate her senior year of high school. Up until now, Carrie and her friends have been inseparable. Then Sebastian Kydd comes into the picture, and a friend's betrayal makes her question everything.

With an unforgettable cast of characters, The Carrie Diaries is the story of how a regular girl learns to think for herself and evolves into a sharp, insightful writer. Through adventures both audacious and poignant, we'll see what brings Carrie to her beloved New York City, where her new life begins. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Okay, in order to read this book, there are a few rules.

Firstly, forget everything about that we learnt about Carrie's life pre SATC from the show. This includes the absent father, the losing of virginity on a pool table and Jeremy Conway. Yes, I love the show as much as anyone, but if you're constantly comparing the two (book and series) you'll be disappointed.

Secondly, forget about the Carrie from the original BOOK Sex and the City, because frankly, she's not as nice as SJP's CB, nor this teenage one in The Carrie Diaries.

Okay, still with me?

Carrie Bradshaw is seventeen years old and ready to start her life. Unfortunately, various inconvieniencies keep getting in the way. She has to complete senior year of high school, her friend's seem to be growing apart, and Sebastian Kydd arrives in Castlebury.

What I loved about this book was the fact that there is no direct references to future Carrie. After all, she's still growing up and finding things out for herself - she's not become 'Carrie Bradshaw' yet. However, there are obviously hints to the person she is - the trouble with guys, the love of fashion, the loyalty in her friendships. It's all there. You can see how she grew up from dreaming of becoming a writer in New York to actually achieving it.

This is for teens, but I think fans of the show will enjoy it, as long as they don't get too upset about the changes in plot. What's great about Candace Bushnell is that it's like she's still at high school. Everything that teenagers worry about in their life is there - the frustration of basically just exisiting, the waiting to actually do something with your life, the concerns and worries that we all had(or have had).

The teenage Carrie Bradshaw is, after all, a teenager.

So teen-girly, loved every word of the book at times tho I did feel like it was a bit slow but I couldn't put it down. A little bit different from the TV show (TV: Carries dad left when she was 5 no siblings BOOK: Her mom passed away leaving her dad & 2 sisters behind) I didn't really like that it did not match the show but it was still good. 100% for teen girls 13-21 I'm 16 x

I bought this book on the back of being a huge fan of The Carrie Diaries TV show, I have never watched an episode of Sex & The City in my life so I can't comment on things on that front but I absolutely love this book, its obviously set in the 80s so it is social media free (very refreshing!), its full of boys, teen troubles, friendship and shows Carrie heading off towards her dream writing career. The ending of the book would probably interest fans of Sex & The City into picking up the next one.

The story maps Carrie's last year in high school. As with SATC, there's lot of talk of sex, but very little happening. The characters are complex, despite the shortness of the story, and it's quite a page turner. If you make it to the end, you'll find out how Carrie met Samantha...

Was a bit sceptical after reading the reviews, especially the one that described this as a teen book. It's no such thing! CB's writing is as witty as in the first SATC books.

If you like the dry humour and wit that epitomises the TV shows, rather than the films per se, you'll love this. Couldn't put it down, read it in a day, and have now ordered the second one.

Initially I found this book hard to get into, it is aimed at teenagers so it is written quite young. However as you progress through the book you learn alot about Carrie's life before sex and the city. I would recommend it for any woman who is a fan of sex and the city as it does give you quite a bit of insight into Carrie starting her writing career. I'm about to start Summer in the city now.

By the time I had read half of the book I was very disinterested and felt it was more suited to teenagers in High School. I have purchased the whole set so hopefully they will improve as I progress.
I will comment further after reading the next episode.

I don't know what I was expecting..I loved the series, so was intrigued by Carrie's early life.

Awful. Reminded me of those Sweet Valley High books we all consumed as teens. They were fine when we were teens...

Words fail me.
