Nice, but too shallow
Summer and the City: A Carrie Diaries Novel
Mar10e @ 2011-05-02
Loved the previous Carrie Bradshaw pre-SATC book, so was more than excited when this new book arrived.
The book indeed starts where it left off; Carrie arriving in New York and meeting Samantha Jones. What follows is a plot-less story of how she manages to meet all the right people in NY, how she falls in and out of love, how she loses her virginity but finds true friends and a career.
Of course, this wasn't a bad read. Candace Bushnell has -imho- a remarkable style, which will absorb you into the book and keep you entertained for a couple of days. Also, she has the ability to crawl into a 18 something-year's heads and make the personages come to life.
Still, "Summer in the city" lacked something for me. Maybe it was the shallowness of this story, the predictable events, the lack of `real' plot, lack of humor. Maybe the Carrie Bradshaw-well is finally dry. Maybe all of the above.
