Okay, I had the opportunity to meet Emily Giffin at Southern Voices weekend before last. She is a delightful young woman who is excited about this being turned into a movie due out on my friend, Carol's birthday..May 6th. We will make this a time to enjoy a movie event. I loved hearing Emily speak. She is charming and fun to listen to. So I bought this book and the second one...Something Blue. Her writing isn't terrible, but and I say but with much reservation....PLEASE.....these characters are ...more

WHO IN THE WORLD THOUGHT THIS BOOK WAS A GOOD IDEA.
WHO SAT THERE AND WAS LIKE I'M GOING TO PUBLISH THIS
AND THEN WOMEN READ IT AND WERE LIKE "OMG I HAVE TO RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ALL MY FRIENDS"
AND THEN A MOVIES WAS MADE?!

I love chick lit. But this was terrible. Well the story line was terrible- I will give props to the author that as cruddy as the story line was it was well written and funny. Like a chick lit should be.

BUT THAT STORY~ ( there are no spoilers my views on the characters)

It isn't often that I will watch the movie before I read the book but as I am a huge Kate Hudson fan, I saw that movie when it came out. In this particular case, I might have also liked the movie more than the book, which almost never happens. But again, I am a huge Kate Hudson fan. Granted, this was not necessarily a great character because Darcy is not the best friend or the best person in general. My guess is that we have all known someone like her. Someone who always has things just go their ...more

Hard to review this book without spoiling the ending so I'll be brief. I didn't really like the characters since they were shallow and self-centered; but maybe that's what single folks are like these days. At times there was unnecessary vulgar language but the sex scenese left things to one's imagination. Although I don't consider this a top quality book, I enjoyed it enough to be on the lookout for Something Blue by the same author.

Even though I could never imagine having sex with my best friend's fiance, I loved the main character, Rachel, and could totally relate to her. On a subject that to me seemed pretty black and white, the author has created a zone with many shades of gray. This was an easy and enjoyable read.

This one was a page turner, but a bit trashy. I won't read the rest in the series, but I admit I was hooked at first.

While it was an easy ready, it really bothers me that the "heroine" of this novel has an affair throughout the entire story. I know the message is "go with your heart" or whatever, but it just bothers me. Maybe I'm just old :) But if you have no problems with cheating ladies, bad friends, etc, this book can be very entertaining.

Pitch-perfect chick lit. Completely loved it. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
