Summer and the City: A Carrie Diaries Novel

Summer and the City - Candace Bushnell Such a disappointing read. I really enjoyed Carrie Diaries, so I was waiting for a enjoyable reading experience. It is Carrie's first summer in NYC; she has already met Samantha and now she meets Miranda and their friendship starts to develop. Carrie is nothing like i see her: she is extremely annoying, pathetic and full of herself. I think the characterization of Carrie was the main reason I disliked this novel so much. Samantha is not at all as I imagine her either, but from the three young women she is the least annoying. Was this novel such a disappointment to anyone else?
