Emily Giffin makes a bold move in Something Blue by telling the story from the perspective of Darcy. After reading Something Borrowed, the reader is naturally inclined to "side" with Rachel, and this new perspective does take some getting used to. For about the first half of Something Blue I still couldn't stand Darcy and wondered why Giffin thought it would be a good idea to make her the protagonist of an entire novel. However, if you hang in there, what emerges is brilliant writing. Giffin displays how people grow and change given the circumstances in their lives, and it is truly very interesting how everything comes full circle in the end.
