I love watching Sex and the City reruns. While I've never read the Sex and the City novel, I was interested in Carrie's backstory. Turns out, it's not so interesting. I wish we would have gotten more insight into why Carrie wants to be a writer, instead of all the petty "My best friend stole my boyfriend" drama. That's high school, I suppose. I was a little confused by how detailed the author is about Carrie's family, who I can't recall ever being mentioned on the show (like I said, I haven't read the novel). Other readers mentioned this and other inconsistencies in their reviews. You'd think the least Bushnell could do is keep her own story straight.
