Author Makes Characters Real

I read this book partially because of the reviews . . . seems people either LOVE this book or HATE this book. I loved it. The author makes these characters so real and the details in the book so real it seems this could be a true story. The true gift Martha Moody has is that if these characters weren't so real and the story so interesting, people wouldn't expect them to grow. The readers who hated it wouldn't be so passionate about their anger. I think the people who didn't like the book were really just angry at the characters, not the book.

great summer reading

I picked this book up on a whim and read the whole thing in one sitting. The style I found refreshing, with the stops and starts and skips ahead interesting...there was always something new coming up. Although the premise might not be groundbreaking, the sheer number of issues and situations covered in the book are staggering...which I didn't really realize until I was finished. I really could identify with the characters and found myself thinking about my life during and after my read. I am a student, so the chance to lounge in the sun reading so intently for a day was is a luxury...and I'm glad I spent my time with this book! It's a good summer read, but that's certainly not to suggest that it's fluff. Personally, I found it much more substantial and eloquent than Summer Sisters.

fun reading

This is one of my favorite novels. I couldn't put it down, and I didn't want it to end. I fell in love with the characters and their story. It also made me appreciate the best friends I have. It is beautifully written with vivid and descriptive detail, though very easy to read.

New Take on Familiar Themei

This book was better than anything recommended in my conservative book club. The twists and turns of the two friends lives are unpredictable, amazing and amusing. Quick read for 400+ pages and a great summer escape novel. Also included 10 vocabulary words that I had to look up in the dictionery so this was no pulp fiction. Do YOU know the meaning of the verb HECTOR? Read it and find out.

Best Friends

Wow,and this is her first novel! Intelligent, insightful- Clare Mann would be proud of Moody's use of adjectives. This author has a gift for intricate detail that brings her characters to life. I normally read medical/legal thrillers...but this book captivated me for the entire weekend. Loved it!
