Okay, this I had not expected. When I last read this, I gave it 5 stars and listed it as one of my favourites. I've dialled down a rating before, but never before by this much!

Back in 2004 I wrote: A very sweet book about lasting friendship. Nice light book, but still has enough depth to leave you thinking about things. I ended up feeling really jealous of the people in the book. I would LOVE to have so many such good girl friends...

Yes, it is a sweet and light book with quite some depth, but honestly, I didn't think it was all that well written, and while definitely not bad, the fact that it took me over a month to finish speaks volumes. It just didn't capture my attention the way it used to. Another reason may be that I actually do have a number of close girl friends now, and therefore didn't have the same need to live vicariously through the women in the book - which is definitely a good thing, and I'd gladly give up a favourite book for it :)
