Getting Carried Away

The Sex and the City film is now out on DVD so here we go again with all the hype. I finally got the film the second time round but still left feeling a tad bit disappointed. The film had it all; love, friendship, clothes, shoes and New York but I couldn't help feeling how cool it would have been if Sex and the City: The Movie had taken us back a few years so we could see Carrie when she first came to NYC and met her ladies in crime. Funny to hear that the children's division of Harper Collins are planning to release a series of books about Carrie in her teenage years. The books will show a young Ms Bradshaw growing up in her native home town and feature her visits to the big apple. S&TC book author, Candace Bushnell has been enlisted to write the books and with a working title of The Carrie Years, it looks like it will be hit with teens as well as their Mothers. However as a good mate of mine stated, it is all a bit much and anyone would think that Carrie Bradshaw was a real life character. So it leads me to ask the question of whether we are truly getting carried away with the immortal S&TC.

Yeah, agreed, we are getting just a wee bit obsessed with Carrie and her cohorts. But that said, the book sounds wicked (laugh).

They have to cash in while they can. with the onset of the teenaged/young adult shows it would only make sense to eventually include one Ms. Bradshaw in the mix. Oh, I know it says book in the blog, but we all know... this is soon to be a television series.

Carrie's early NYC years? I think it's a fab idea! I would definitely read that, whereas I don't think I'd read the teenage stuff.

Ondo Lady why don't you speak to Candace Bushnell's people and WRITE the early years?
