[Emily Giffin] ☆ Something Borrowed [young-adult-science-fiction PDF] Ebook Epub Download ä Oh, so this is how it sounds inside the heads of people who can rationalize anything.
Well, this was my first, and now probably last, foray into chick lit I found the characters to be totally unbelieveable A consummate good girl would never have an affair with her best friend s fiancee, despite Darcy s shortcomings as a friend Some feel Rachel s behavior was justified because of Darcy s litany of slights, pulled from as far back as 5th grade However that Rachel remained Darcy s friend in spite of her bitchiness, just proves Rachel s own weakness of character And it was totally contra to her so called good girl persona Could she not find any real friends Even after growing up and living apart from Darcy for several years during college Far from being a modern heroine, I found Rachel weak, immoral, flat, and lifeless totally not a person to root for.

Ok, I tried I am not going to read this tripe any further.
From the first 50 ish pages that I did read, this books sounds somewhat like the show Sex and the City Rachel is part Miranada a not so good looking lawyer, and part Charolette miss goody two shoes who wants to find a husband and settle down Darcy is part Samantha, part Carrie, she has good looks and has always managed to make the guy she liked fall for her and is now engaged to a guy she wants to marry And just like the show, these two 30 yr old women can t think or talk about anything beyond dating and men.
Both the main characters are annoying Darcy is a shallow self serving bitch and Rachel lacks a backbone They have been best friends since childhood But their friendship doesn t seem credible at all Darcy is self centered and insensitive and has been running I loved this book and have passed it on to other friends Thanks to Kristi for turning me on to this author This is one of the best chick lit books ever The follow up Something Blue was almost as good The story focuses on two lifelong best friends, Rachel and Darcy The first installment is told from Rachel s perspective the second book is told from Darcy s perspective Very clever.
Rachel is the single, plain, thirtysomething, always a responsible good girl attorney Something I can totally relate to except for the lawyer part LOL Darcy is the exact opposite she is the outgoing, popular, pretty girl who is engaged to Dex As the story unfolds, we learn that Rachel has known Dex since law school and has been in love with him for quite some time And as luck would have it, Dex confesses his feelings for Rachel even though he is engaged to Darcy Normally one might frown on su So here s my take on Something Borrowed, and Chic lit in general it s satisfying in the way watching an episode of The Hills is satisfying You know EXACTLY what s going to happen from the first lines of the first chapter which i guess can be nice since it makes you feel smart and gives a general sense of superiority the characters are predictable, with a heroine that s just likable enough to continue reading but who you generally dislike never fully sympathize with it s pretty much something to read when you don t want to have to think At all The definition of beach reading I think this book is great to read on vacation, but other than that I thought it was crap I mean seriously, is there REALLY a debate over whether or not Rachel did the right thing The author sets up the story in a way so that it s impossible to sympathize or side with Darcy, who is such an uber bitch that it nulli Despite all my protests and misgivings about a book on infidelity, I was surprised that had the urge to get back to the story and find out what happened For that, I wanted to give the book 4 stars, but I just couldn t because, well, it s a book about infidelity, and not just about infidelity, but the view point that there s nothing wrong with it since the couple isn t married yet.
The book starts with A LOT of backstory It s eventually important to Rachel and Darcy s relationship, but it sure makes the beginning drag What I wanted from that opening scene was not memories of Rachel and Darcy as kids I wanted to be pulled into the scene and believe the sequence of events that ended with a girl in bed with her best friend s fiancee I neededto get me there The lawyer presenting to the jury bit afterwards was amusing, but it didn t get me into her head to justify how it happened I neede
I read this book in two sittings I know it is a little controversial some people adore Rachel for stealing her best friend Darcy s fiance And some others think it is just immoral.
Here goes my opinion Rachel, who is a passive thirty years old woman, has lived in Darcy s shadow all her life Darcy stole her first love Ethan who now becomes Rach s best friend , her Notre Dame acceptance, her pride and even Rachel s own mother s sympathy Darcy is not that evil, actually, she is self centered Sometimes I really like Darcy for being so perfect Sometimes I hate her for being so annoying.
The truth is, all characters are flawed and personally, not likeable However, they are all original and real, that s why I give 4 stars for this book it is hard for a It wasn t bad as chicklit goes, but I don t know how sympathetic I can be to characters who are betraying their fiancees and best friends Plus, in order to make the cheating something okay, a lot of energy is put into making Darcy really off putting and Rachel really kind of pathetic I liked Hilary and Ethan a lot though in all other chick lit books Ethan would have been either gay or the guy Rachel actually ended up with , but the central relationships just left me cold Eh Apparently I can t get behind cheating and being rewarded for it Who knew I was so morally inflexible I d like to read one of her other books, because I did enjoy the writing and her handle on some of the main things I look for in chick lit fast track career, portrait of the city, circle of friends, consumerism, etc.
