To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As a long time Weiner fan, I was not disappointed at all in this lovely book. I love a good commentary on friendships, particularly those who stand the test of time. This is a perfect example. The friendship of the young girls was sweet and called to memory those of my own life. But, it is the adult friendship that makes this book so perfect. If you are a friend or have ever had a friend, you will love this book. If you have lost touch with a friend of long standing you MUST read this book. Weiner has my total respect and admiration.,
I have thoroughly enjoyed every novel written by Jennifer Weiner that I could get my hands on. The characters and scenarios are so "relateable". I could so wrap my brain around the theme and plot of this book even though it was almost comical and unbelievable at times,
I really enjoyed reading this book. I picked it for a bookclub that I am in. Just went to the NYTimes bestsellers list and picked it off the list. It was a great pick. Lots of different things going on. There is one part of the storyline that keeps you reading late at night because you HAVE to know what happened back then to one of the characters! I recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy read with a great moral and story.
Just like life, Best Friends Forever is many things. Sometimes it extremely sad, ridiculously hilarious, or in some ways - predictable (but not necessarily in a bad way). The characters were quite often the victims of avoidable assumptions... again, much like life.
I appreciated the weave of the present and background stories of the characters. Their earlier experiences provided a strong establishment of character and further defined their attitudes and motivations about their situations, life, and relationships. Though I'd probably give this book 4.5 stars, it gets the extra half star for its wit, smooth prose, laughs, and for the fact that I almost felt like I was along for the ride on this fun adventure with these two BFF's!
