I just finished the book yesterday and I thought it was an excellent book! I've read all of Emily Giffin's books and I've been looking for another author with similar writing style for awhile and I feel this book really satisfied me; you'll finish the book in no time because you won't be able to put it down (you'll also wish she came out with another book already!)

I enjoyed this book and the character development of the 4 women involved in the story. It centers around life at Smith College and the friendships between the 4 girls. Then upon graduation....they all go their separate ways, but the friendships remain strong. It was definitely "chick lit" but a great summer read. I was in it until the last page. I recommend it for some great light reading. Can't wait to start her new book......MAINE.

I listened to it via audio and the narrator did a great job with accents of the four young women (Celia, Bree, Sally, and April), especially the southern accent and at times was very humorous as the friendship develops between the 4 gals at the beginning of their freshman year at Smith College. However, I would not have made it thru reading the book; however, felt I need to finish the audio. I was not crazy about Maine either, so not an author I typically read. There was a lot of radical feminist politics and topics which were not of interest to me.

And glad I stuck with it as it turned into a real page turner The girls are genuine and I liked each of them I read Maine first and it is apparent Ms Sullivan has had great female relstionships and role models as both have strong characters from all generations I look forward to her next novel

This book had a good start similar to sisterhood of traveling pants, and then went downhill from there. 4 friends that can't get over their college years. 4 friends that have absolutely nothing in common & remained friends for no reason. Years after they graduate they were still dwelling on the past. The end just topped the cake. TOTALLY RIDICULOUS. Do not waste your time-even if you have nothing better to do!

I am all for giving new writers the benefit of the doubt, but this book was a waste of my time. The writer wrote more about Smith College, than developing the characters or the story itself. There was no closure, although the writer had many opportunities to do so, and the ending was horrible, I literally thought the last pages were lost. I would not recommend this book to anyone....and am disappointed I spent the money on it myself...

Enjoyed the book initially and I liked that the relationships were raw and not just pretty and comfortable. However... I felt totally cheated by the ending. Come on, we don't invest the time and money into reading a book to be left like that! TOTALLY UNFULFILLED!!!

I didn't care for this book. I wouldn't buy it again. If you are into women's issues and kind of far-fetched plots maybe you would like it. Not my kind of book.

I'm glad I stuck with it. The first quarter of the storyline is a bit confusing, jumbled, but soon enough a decent storyline builds up and characters reach a depth that allows the reader to care about what the characters do and what happens to them. Well written, funny at times. The ending is far better than that of Maine.

As a graduate of a women's college, Cottey College, I dove into this hoping to find exactly what I found. A wonderous story about the bonds you forge going to a women's college. While the ending left me with a desire for more, I have to say that overall it was a worthwhile read. My Cottey sisters will ALWAYS be my sisters. They are the first ones I turn to for anything and when we get together it is like we had never been apart. This book does a fantastic job describing how important those friendships and how it really is hard to move on from that nuturing environment of a women's college.
