Bilkson in small letters , from Collard and Collard in very large letters. It is also a great comfort to us to know that our boy Willie is getting on so well in the Bank at Oldham. We should like to see more of him.
Now for my diary:— April 3. By-the-by, that reminds me there is no key to our bedroom door, and the bells must be seen to. April 4.
Tradesmen still calling; Carrie being out, I arranged to deal with Horwin, who seemed a civil butcher with a nice clean shop. Ordered a shoulder of mutton for to-morrow, to give him a trial. In the evening, Cummings unexpectedly dropped in to show me a meerschaum pipe he had won in a raffle in the City, and told me to handle it carefully, as it would spoil the colouring if the hand was moist.
Must get the scraper removed, or else I shall get into a scrape. April 5.
Gowing called, and fell over scraper coming in. Must get that scraper removed. April 6. Sarah said Mr. In the evening, hearing someone talking in a loud voice to the servant in the downstairs hall, I went out to see who it was, and was surprised to find it was Borset, the butterman, who was both drunk and offensive. I restrained my feelings, and quietly remarked that I thought it was possible for a city clerk to be a gentleman. When he had gone, I thought of a splendid answer I ought to have given him.
However, I will keep it for another occasion. April 7. Found Borset waiting. He had been three times during the day to apologise for his conduct last night.
He said he was unable to take his Bank Holiday last Monday, and took it last night instead. I really enjoyed reading about the crazy adventures of Carrie and her friends. Carrie and her friends don't care about if they are popular or if they have the coolest clothes, all they care about is having a good time and making the most out of their senior year.
What shocked me about this novel was how much drinking went on in high school. I thought to myself, "Did kids actually drink that much when I was in high school?
I was astounded by how these kids got into bars, ordered drinks, and chain smoked like it was their job. But then again, the Carrie Bradshaw we all know and love from TV drinks like a fish and smokes like a camel. I guess she had to start somewhere, and that somewhere is high school. The Carrie Diaries touches on a lot of typical high school subjects: All the stuff you learn about in health class rolled into one page-turning book.
Carrie's writing aspirations are inspiring, she knows what she wants and even though she hasn't written anything important until her senior year, she knows she wants to be a writer.
Reminds me of my senior year, and my dreams of becoming a writer; the dream is still out there, waiting for me to make it happen. The last line of the book is what makes it an awesome read. I wish I could say more, but I don't want to spoil it.
For a big Sex and the City fan, the ending is spectacular. Hardcover Verified download. Who doesn't love the "Sex and the City" ladies and all their adventures? Well, upon finding that Candace Bushnell wrote The Carrie Diaries, a young adult novel about Carrie as a senior in high school, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
I have always wanted to know more about those girls and just how life was like for them in the mean halls of high school. Carrie hasn't had things easy, but she still has dreams of becoming a writer.
She applied to a summer writing program in NYC, but she was rejected. Now she must resign herself to going to Brown and studying science like her father wants. She wishes desperately her mom were still alive to give her advice about what to do.
So she keeps going through the motions, hanging out with her friends, chain smoking cigarettes it was the 's after all , and listening to all her friends tell her about their boyfriends, guy friends, and crushes Carrie's first run-in with Sebastian when they were young was not terribly promising, but he is still as hot as she remembers. At first she thinks he is dating the head cheerleader and Queen Bee Donna LaDonna feel free to gag a little at that name I did.
But soon it becomes clear Sebastian Kydd wants her more. Carrie is thrilled, until Donna LaDonna wages war on her. Carrie's dad introduces her to a Brown student he knows and encourages her to spend time with him in a not-so-subtle way of getting her to go to Brown. She likes George, but he just isn't boyfriend material.
Still she continues hanging out with him until George finds out about Sebastian. Then she is left with Sebastian and a group of friends that has slowly fallen apart while Carrie was wrapped up in her own world. When Carrie's sister gets put in jail for shoplifting and her father makes all three daughters go on lock down, she doesn't get to see anyone including Sebastian for 2 weeks.
Upon her first jailbreak, there is clearly something up with Sebastian and Carrie's friend Lali. When Carrie runs back into the bar, she gets an eyeful of the two of them making out. Now, boyfriend-less, friendless, motherless, and without the summer writing class, Carrie has no idea what to do. Luckily, George forgives her and along with a few other good friends, and they help Carrie realize she has to go with what she believes in. She starts writing articles for the school newspaper under a pseudonym and exposes high school life for what it really is.
When she submits those articles to the NY writer's program, she is accepted and her father agrees to let her go. Thus begins the story of Carrie Bradshaw, columnist If this story sounds a little thin, its because it kind of is. If it weren't for the ties I already had to the main character, Carrie, I may not have really gotten in to this story.
The beginning was kind of slow and it took some real willpower to spend some time getting into it. When I finally did, though, it picked up a bit. The story was interesting, but I think there were a number of flaws. First, the marketing of this book as YA shoots past the mark. In order to really like the story, you should know of the TV show or original novels by Candace Bushnell, but those are certainly not child-friendly.
Otherwise, this is only a mediocre story at best. The other serious flaw was the time period it is set in- she is a senior in high school in the early 80's when kids and teachers alike openly smoked in and around school, the drinking age was 18, so they could easily sneak into bars and get alcohol.
This might not seem too much of a stretch for teenagers, but it really seemed like a different world.
In fact, I think younger readers would have a hard time relating to the time period- it is that weird limbo where it is close enough to seem familiar but long enough ago to be so wildly different.
If it was earlier or later, it might have been easier to relate to. The writing is fairly simplistic, but some of the circumstances might be better for an older crowd. There is a fair amount of talk about sex, alcohol, and cigarettes, but I wouldn't say it is in excess. I just think this might be a better book for older young adults or adults who are more familiar with the television show.
I know they would certainly appreciate the last paragraph where a certain someone comes to Carrie's rescue! One person found this helpful. I absolutely flew through The Carrie Diaries! I thought it was a really great, entertaining high school story.
However, I think I would have enjoyed it even more had it not been about Carrie Bradshaw. I kept battling what I knew to be true from the series, for example: Did she even have sisters? Or a mother that died of cancer? These are all things that would have been mentioned in the show as these are huge life-shaping events! Didn't Carrie's dad leave her when she was young?

Would she really have worn a turtleneck and cords to school as a senior? How could she be a diver in high school and not reference that during her trapeze flying days i. I even knew she lost her virginity in 11th grade - and so therefore, wouldn't be a virgin in 12th. And let's face it - what about her sweet yet insane David Duchovny boyfriend? I thought I'd read about him and "the pacer" in this book, but nope - he's nowhere to be found.
I think its these kind of factual missteps between the series and the book that will make any true SATC fan's head spin round and round.
