wonderful book on friendship

I read this book almost 3 years ago and to this day it still sticks in my mind. I am one who reads all types of books from the classics to historical fiction to mainstream lit. THe writing wasn't fancy but the story was extremely well told with real emotion. I wanted to be friends with these girls. I do not agree with the first reviewer when she says it is confusing. If you read the name at the top of the chapter, you know exactly who is taking in that chapter of the book- not too difficult at all. ALL girls should be lucky enough to have a group of friends like the characters in this book. HIghly recommended.

Nice themes

An overall enjoyable read, HOWEVER, it is peppered with totally unnecessary F-words that not only dumb down the writing, but also the characters. Surely a creative writer can come up with a better word to use. I got so tired of them that I put the book down for a long...
An overall enjoyable read, HOWEVER, it is peppered with totally unnecessary F-words that not only dumb down the writing, but also the characters. Surely a creative writer can come up with a better word to use. I got so tired of them that I put the book down for a long time before I picked it up again to finish, and even considered returning it. For this reason, this book will not be a part of my permanent library.

    Not a favorite

    I can't say I disliked this book, just found it boring. I thought the beginning chapters were introducing each character and giving a little bit of background for the story. I like to read a story all put together, not jusr chapters on characters. Got bored and quit reading at about page 83.

    Not what I expected.

    I thought this was disappointing. The book didnt get good until the last 100 pages or so. It was dragging for a while there, and got confusing at times with all the switching around.

    Slow

    I bought this book because it was compared to 'The Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood' which I loved. There is no comparison. In my opinion the book is downright boring and I am sorry I bought it. I am an avid reader but I cannot get into this book at all.

    Why is this a bestseller?

    I don't understand! I became so depressed reading this book! It is a bunch of women who eat all the time and can not get over their problems. I did like the writing style though, each chapter was the perspective of one of the characters, which was a little refreshing from the normal 3rd person writing.
