Darcy is not that evil, actually, she is self centered I read this book in two sittings. 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. Then there is this perfect but not so perfect then Dex Thaler. Dex is the handsome, patient, smart guy who is all perfect for Rachel. Only he never decides whether he wants Rachel or Darcy until the very end. Rachel herself is not a character I sympathize with. She is passive, she does not know what she wants, and she cannot stand up for herself.
It is actually quite annoying to know that everything that happens to her is not all Darcy's selfish fault. It is her fault too, for not defending herself. However, I like the book! I like how the author creates twists and makes the story believable and in the end I'm happy for everyone: Good Christmas read!

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 m 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.
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 needed more to 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 needed more to sympathize with Rachel. Maybe what I needed to sympathize with her more was a reason Dex was worth risking a friendship over. All I got from Rachel were some vague stereotypes that he was handsome and smart. Even in the scenes he was in, I didn't get any personality from him.
He was like a fuzzy character in a dream that never quite materializes into a real person. I had to take Rachel's word for it every time she said she loved him because I didn't get anything out of their relationship. When Ethan asked Rachel if she was only interested in Dex so she could win something over Darcy, I thought that must be it.

I'm still not convinced that isn't true. In the end I had a hollow feeling, and it wasn't just at the things lost. It was that I still didn't know Dex and didn't know if he was worth it to either girl.
It made the ending mean a whole lot less to me. The whole book I kept trying to get inside Dex's head to figure out why he was cheating, why he wouldn't make a decision, why he stayed with Darcy, why he kept leading Rachel on, why he did anything, but I couldn't pin down Dex's motivation. While it bothered me to have such a pivotal character so undefined, it kind of worked to keep up the suspense. I had no idea if he liked Darcy or Rachel, if he was using Rachel or Darcy, if he was conflicted about this whole thing or a player, or if he was going to pull some twist in the whole drama.
Darcy was supposed to be the volatile unknown, but I almost think Dex was more of one. In the end, I don't think the story is as much about the love triangle as it is about friendship. The complexity of childhood-turned-adult friendship was very well done and I even though I wanted to strangle Darcy, I could see why Rachel had remained friends with her.
Interesting that the character who moved in to late to reach best friend status who was also so passive was named Annalise. I don't know what that's like at all read: I had trouble with the route and justifications and conclusions that the romance took, but looking at the story as a journey of two friends, I liked it a whole lot more. I liked the movie.
Dex was still a cardboard, but I could see better what Rachel saw in him and how he was conflicted. John Kransinski stole the show.

May 04, Anne rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Book Clubs. I don't understand the rave reviews.
How is this a good story? Was Rachael supposed to be the one I was rooting for in this scenario? Rachael was a whiner who played it safe, then blamed her friend for all of the things that she didn't have. Yes, Darcy was a self-centered friend. So what?! If you don't like the way she treats you And Dex? He was a cheater. There is no other way to put it. I can unders?????? I can understand how if they had always felt something for each other, that they could have fallen into one others' arms in the heat of the moment.
That's forgivable. Carrying on an affair for months before Darcy and Dex's wedding? Why didn't Dex just call off the wedding as soon as he knew it wasn't just a drunken one night stand? How could he continue to live with Darcy, and see her best friend on the side?! What an enormous asshole! In fairness, it turned out that Darcy was also cheating on him with a guy that Rachael had had a few dates with, but that doesn't make what Dex and Rachael did right.
I couldn't muster up any sympathy for either of them. I honestly thought Rachael would have been better off without him, but at the same time I kind of thought that they deserved each other. Maybe I wasn't supposed to like them? Maybe the point of the story was that nobody is perfect? That life and love is messy? Maybe I just don't get chick-lit? View all 4 comments.
Feb 13, Chelsea chelseadolling reads rated it really liked it. You guys. I've been avoiding this series for years because I thought it was just gonna be some lame ass, cheesy chick-lit, but MAN. I reeeeaaaaally liked this. Chick Lit Lovers. You WANT to hate the main character - I mean, she's not only hooking up with an engaged man, but it's her best friend's fiance - but, Griffin did an amazing job of making Rachel someone you rooted for.
So, congrats on that! This was a great beach read. Quick and quirky. Jun 12, Kim rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is my absolute favourite in chick lit. The characters are very well written and real.
And you can't help but to feel for the main girl. But that doesn't mean that she's completely cruel and doesn't deserve the other girl's friendship. Or your own.
The way the author retells the girl's background.
How they interacted as they grew up. And how one always used the other as a measuring stick for everything she did back then and still does. You c This is my absolute favourite in chick lit. You come to realize that this friendship is not as good as it could be. They are both not true to themselves and that makes them lie to each other. And it gives the main girl a green light to follow her heart and go for the guy she should have gone for.
Had she not found herself not worthy of him back in college when they met and he already liked her. But she figured her friend was more appropriate for him and matched them together. I could relate to the girl and how she felt.
She was now 30 and her friend was still Lots of girls know how it is to feel like the underdog. Most of us have had bad girlfriends from hell. People change, friends change. We wish for everything to stay the same. But sometimes you can't fix things 20 years later when the real trouble started 20 years ago. I really recommend this book to anyone who likes chick lit with real heart. Because this book has it. Feb 26, Love Fool rated it it was amazing.
LOVE this book. Read it twice because I loved it so much. I am against cheating who isn't , especially with your best friend's man butttttt this made me cheer for the main character who was having an affair with her best friend's man.
How could you not love Rachel? I was able to relate to her when I thought I was going to hate her. This made me tear up and laugh and wish I was friends with Rachel even with her flaw.
I recommend reading this on a rainy night with a glass of wine or the whole LOVE this book. I recommend reading this on a rainy night with a glass of wine or the whole bottle.
You won't be able to stop reading it and then won't be able to stop talking about it like me. Then I will be able to welcome you to the Emily Giffin fan club this book made me want to read her others.
View all 7 comments. This book is the reason I haven't won a giveaway on here for over three years. I won this from Goodreads in one of the first giveaways I entered, back in , I believe. I think they gave away over copies of this book, or something around that?
Since then I've realized that unless you read the books they send you you're probably not going to win another giveaway. Oh we This book is the reason I haven't won a giveaway on here for over three years. Oh well, I have thousands of books to read. I wish I hadn't entered to win this book though, because even though it's pink, I really don't like chick-lit. It has pretty good reviews and I have friends who liked it so there was always a chance that even though it wasn't my favorite genre I might have found something about it to like.
I was probably going to read this someday, mostly just because GR gave it to me to read, but not anymore.
I don't expect this to count as "reviewing" this book just so I could maybe start winning giveaways, but that doesn't mean I still didn't have something to say. View all 25 comments. Jan 30, Under the pages rated it liked it Shelves: Darcy was more beautiful, got into the university that Rachel wanted and even managed to have the boys that Rachel liked.
Darcy era mais bonita, entrou na universidade que Rachel queria e ainda conseguiu ficar com todos os rapazes que Rachel gostava. View 2 comments. Dec 13, Jennifer rated it it was ok Shelves: I have just discovered Ms. Giffin , and while I loved the first book I read that was written by her, I have to admit, I didn't love this one so much.
The writing style remains fun and light, but I hated the characters. I guess I just hated that the main characters' romance was based on such deceit and yet it ended in a HEA. That is a pet peeve of mine in novels and it always leaves a sour taste in my mouth, not to mention a WTF? If this had been the first Emily Giffin book I read, I may very well have not read any others.
However, that wasn't the case so this experience doesn't change my interest in Ms. However, I would not re-read this particular book, nor would I recommend it to others. I don't plan to continue the series. Aug 08, Obsidian rated it it was ok Shelves: So here's the thing. I used to read Emily Griffin books. For some odd reason I have this book and the sequel to this on my Kindle from way back when.
After overstuffing myself with true crime books, I decided to switch to some chick lit. I honestly don't recall reading this book and I am kind of horrified that I ever bought it in the first place. I think my main romance book reading rule is for the most part, no cheating. I hate reading it and I have a hard time cheering on characters who are doing it.
So I ended up finishing this one and the next one in the story "Something Blue" and found that one to actually be much better than this one. Not by much though, I gave the sequel to this one three stars, while the first book just two.
The main character in "Something Borrowed" is Rachel. She's about to celebrate her 30th birthday and is doing well professionally. However, she ends up drinking a lot at the birthday party her best friend Darcy throws for her. She ends up sleeping with Darcy's fiancee Dex and most of the book is her being upset at times about what she did and her trying to justify it because Darcy is evil incarnate. I think the big issue for me is that Rachel cheats with her best friend's fiancee.
I also don't believe that Rachel would have stayed friends with Darcy from childhood to her 30s if she was this flawed. I also don't believe that Rachel and Dex were fighting off some long held attraction for each other. I found him boring and also to be an ass if I may say so. He sleeps with his fiancee's best friend and pretty much runs around most of the book trying to get her to do it again. Rachel and Darcy have a mutual friend, Ethan, who honestly I think was a better match for Rachel.
I was hoping that was the way things would go, but nope. Ethan was better than the other characters in this book by far. I honestly didn't really dig the writing in this one. This is not my first foray into Griffin's books, but it's really boring reading about someone justifying cheating with a guy who is engaged to their best friend.
Heck, even Carrie from Sex and the City realized she was garbage for cheating with Mr. Big and didn't dance around it. The flow was awful in this one. Maybe because I was tired of Rachel's voice about at the 50 percent point. And then the book ends on what is on what I think the author believes is a hopeful note. I promptly went and read book 2 because that one was Darcy's story. Also, I sadly recall this was made into a movie that I never did finish. I was trapped on a plane many many moons ago years and I recalled when this was offered as a selection.
I tend to like Kate Hudson movies or at least older ones so put this on and turned it off about 20 minutes into the movie. This is not a romantic comedy. Mar 07, Rose rated it it was ok Shelves: I spent the better part of the day reading this book, all some odd pages, and was utterly disappointed by it.
Hm... Are You a Human?
Granted, I don't harbor any ill will towards chick-lit books, but what started off as a mildly interesting story dwindled into a spiraling trainwreck of deception and haphazard emotions between flat and stereotypical characters.
I'll briefly summarize the main point of the story: Darcy is villainized as the best friend who has not only stolen previous boyfriends and opportunities for Rachel, but continues to intrude upon Rachel's life in the months preparing for the wedding. I'm sorry, but I don't buy completely villainizing someone who's supposed to be a best friend at the perspective of a woman Rachel who seems just as needy and flawed as the character she complains about.
I also never had a true sense of attraction noted between Darcy and Dex or Dex and Rachel other than some of the intimate moments between the latter two which, admittedly, were well written in spurts. By the end, there really any sense of satisfaction or justice for any of the characters except for a predictable ending, and even in that, one could argue that if that weren't the point, there's not a sense that the scheme of events had any realism to them - it played out like a forced soap opera.
I disliked Darcy about as much as I disliked Dex and Rachel, the latter the protagonist and the perspective in which this story is written. It's confounding when you have most of the main characters involved in cheating relationships with ill treatment of how heavy of an issue it is, and then trying to justify the cheating relationship because it's true love?
No, that's quite farfetched even if you extract the scheme of events transpiring in this story. This book trivialized the issue to the point of oblivion and tried to pass it off in a feel good way. The one merit I will give this story is that Giffin did start this book with some well written backstory and reflection upon the characters, but at the same time, that quality doesn't hold water through the rest of the book, and the conflict drags on for more than it really had to.
I don't normally harp on literature as much as I do with this, but I have to say it really wasn't that good in its overall quality, and I don't think I'd choose to read it again.
There were parts of it that I liked, but not enough to make me say that I'd hold much value for it in recommendations. I may read the sequel just to see what it offers, but my impressions of this story individually aren't in the highest light. Overall score: Well, I just watched the movie by chance yesterday, I liked it..
Darcy "perfectly portrayed by Kate Hudson" is really interesting character, and her friendship with Rachel is complicated and remarkable. Then I wanted more, I find this book sample; Then I reached my twenties. And the early twenties did seem to last forever. When I heard acquaintances a few years older lament the end of their youth, I felt smug, not yet in the danger zone myself.
I had plenty of time. Until about age twenty-seven, w Well, I just watched the movie by chance yesterday, I liked it.. Until about age twenty-seven, when the days of being carded were long gone and I began to marvel at the sudden acceleration of years reminding myself of my mother's annual monologue as she pulled out our Christmas decorations and the accompanying lines and stray gray hairs.
At twenty-nine the real dread set in, and I realized that in a lot of ways I might as well be thirty. But not quite. Because I could still say that I was in my twenties. I still had something in common with college seniors. Actually the whole first chapter caught my attention.
Well, the sample really amazing.. Do u think it's suitable for male readers too, who.. I realize thirty is just a number, that you're only as old as you feel and all of that. I also realize that in the grand scheme of things, thirty is still young. But it's not that young. It is past the most ripe, prime child-bearing years, for example. It is too old to, say, start training for an Olympic medal.
I don't know but I really considering it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Rachel falls for her best friend's fiance during her 30th birthday party. The fiance, Dex, returns Rachel's amorous feelings.
