Gossip Girl "16 The New 30" NY Times' Season Review

The NY Times article "What Are Friends For? Power and Pain" by ALESSANDRA STANLEY is an interesting read. I whole heartedly agree with is that in the world of Gossip Girl "16 is the new 30." Unfortunately, I hadn't had the opportunity to read the "Gossip Girl" books. So When I began to watch the television series, it was definitely mind bending! Tell my visitors what you think.

I haven't read all the books, but I think the series is way lot better. The story is stronger, and I think the cast is perfect. But since it is a different story than the one in the books you can watch the series and read the books. I have stopped reading the books, because I think the series is better.

The books are different but good..I have only read first 3 because in here they are the only one could..but it took me ~6 days to finish reading them..because you get hooked really fast..as I said it's different.. but at the same time very similar..I think the action in the show happens faster..but like in all books it's interesting to know what they are thinking.. ;)

I've read all the books and there very different story line to say the least. But I think the Tv show is easier to follow. Both are good. You Get Hoookeed!

I've read the books and seen the episodes and for me these are two things totally differents. I prefer the books because it's more trash, evil and stuff and the story is more developed and complicated but honestly the TV show is quite cool! I really like it! But maybe i'm wrong and the atmosphere that I prefer in the books is just a result of the french translation (because i'm french obviously)To finish i just want to say that i think the TV show is destined to a younger audience than the books.

I read the books and they are NOTHING compared to the show.
I found the books lame but LOVE LOVE LOVE the show!'
Same concept but different storylines in the books vs. tv show
