Oh, lord, HOW boggled and furious was I? And all the more so by the fact that although it looks like the article is set up to accept comments, I've found it impossible to get the site to accept any of mine. (Or indeed to let me rate the review, although happily other people have managed to give it a pretty tellingly low rating.)

I'm sure I won't be the only person in your comments linking to my own blog post on the matter - and, yes, had it been a matter of the reviewer saying that fantasy wasn't her cup of tea, or indeed coming up with something that sounded like a cogent critique, I'd simply have shrugged.

But positing that real women prefer 'Sex And The City' to a complex narrative with multiple plot threads dealing with power and politics and relationships, and because we're too squeamish to enjoy action or violence...

DO. NOT. WANT.

On a much cheerier note - my God, I am SO excited about the TV show! It looks like a wonderful adaptation, and I've been getting increasingly psyched watching the teasers on YouTube.
