Sex and the City

by Candace Bushnell
Read by Cynthia Nixon

      Sex and the City is a collection of observations on life and romance in Manhattan as told through the columns that inspired the series and later movie.

Often cynical, often amusing, the book is a collection of short outtakes from columns woven together to provide a glimpse of the romance, or lack thereof, common in Manhattan’s socially mobile and ambitious crowd. Told from Carrie’s point of view, the reporter takes us through a series of short clips and small events to build a larger picture of the romantic situation in the big city.

Cynthia Nixon does a great job with narration, keeping it light and enjoyable. If you’re interested in the series, or what’s behind it, you’ll find this an enjoyable listen.
