Something Borrowed

Emily Giffin


The smash-hit debut novel for every woman who has ever had a complicated love-hate friendship.

Rachel White is the consummate good girl. A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan law firm and a diligent maid of honor to her charmed best friend Darcy, Rachel has always played by all the rules. Since grade school, she has watched Darcy shine, quietly accepting the sidekick role in their lopsided friendship. But that suddenly changes the night of her thirtieth birthday when Rachel finally confesses her feelings to Darcy's fiance, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way. As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In so doing, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.

Something Blue and Baby Proof are also good reads by Giffin.

To be honest, I only read the first few chapters. The soap-opera-style writing and characters made the story too shallow for me to care what happened next. I skipped ahead and read the last chapter before writing this review and still wasn't impressed.
For people who just want entertainment, Emily Giffin may be just right.
Me, I'd rather be reading something more thought-provoking.

All of Giffin's books are phenomenal, but this one is truly extraordinary. It is comparative to the thrills of watching a movie, but the laughs of being in the presence of a good friend. One of the best novels there is.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This was a great book! I really enjoyed learning about the characters and their relationships in this book."

Finally, a book where the Good Girl wins in the end. Although one can argue for days whether Rachel fits the "Good Girl" model, in her own right she is compared to her longtime Best Frenemy Darcy. Highly recommend by moi, and the sequel is also equally good.

I didn't like this book as well as Something Blue, so for the record you should read Something Borrowed before Something Blue since it kind of gives away home this one will end. Overall though light read, perfect for summer and it keeps you engaged.

This book was OK. i didn't like how Rachels self esteem was so low and pathetic. As shallow as Darcey was she never betrayed Rachel. I just cant relate to this book and i would get aggravated with some of the characters.

Like her other books, and almost as bad as the movie. Not a fan of Emily Giffin's writing or plot. Won't be trying her again.

fans of Sophie Kinsella will enjoy this one, Emily Giffin has a similar "fun" writing style. & don't be putt off by the movie, the book is much better!
