    If youve seen Sex & the City the movie, you know all about this book. I had to have it after seeing the movie! The day the book arrived, i read it cover to cover, and i keep it on my nightstand to this day. i still love flipping through the pages and reading the romantic letters over and over again, If you have ever been in love, this book will be everything you love about having some care for you. It is sappy, but its fantastic. If only nowadays people were this open about their feelings!
