I don't have words to describe how beautifully the author has put the story confronting us. The story is so heart touching it just mesmerize u... I just wish Tibby should have been with her friends till the end. Beautifully narrated. A must buy.....
This book was listed as in good condition and it certainly was! I would not hesitate to order a used books from here again.....excellent price, arrived within the date given, so I am pleased. This is a very poignant story and if you enjoyed the previous books in the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants you will enjoy this one!
Now that the four girls of the sisterhood are almost thirty, the way they think and act (and therefore the way they are written about) has matured. The story is by turns heartbreaking and inspiring, and left me feeling that I finally understood the love that bound them together.
The story begins as the four women are leading very different lives than the ones they imagined as teenagers. They are all in different cities; Carmen is getting minor acting roles and living a superficial, empty life on the edge of showbiz, engaged to be married. Bee is attempting to live a hippy, wanderlust lifestyle while living with her boyfriend who is a lawyer, Lena is teaching art and shutting most of the outside world away, and Tibby has gone to Australia with Brian. The pants are long gone, and their closeness "together and apart" seems to elude them until Tibby organises a reunion for them all in Santorini. What happens there changes their lives irrevocably, and threatens to destroy the sisterhood forever.
If you are looking for the teenage angst of the earlier books, this isn't for you. But if you are looking for a more adult perspective on life, love, loss and friendship, this book has it in spades.
Sisterhood everlasting continues the story of four childhood friends who have grown up (ten years on from the last book). Reading this book is like putting on an old pair of cosy slippers. It is interesting to read about what the friends have done with their lives. There is a twist in the story that is unexpected and takes the book to a place I never expected it to go. Despite this I really enjoyed the story and at the end I still want more.
I started reading this series as a teenager and am now 25, so I was relieved that the characters in this series of the book were now 30 - I was able to relate to it better! Sometimes I felt it was a bit lacking in the depth required to explain some of the darker things that happen in the book, but dragged on a bit much on the same topics without shedding much new light on them. In saying that I was glad I read it and very much enjoyed it!
This book was excellent and followed perfectly on from the rest of the series. If i had any doubts in the beginning these soon faded away. it is beautifully written and a must for all fans of brashares. the end is definately worth the wait.
It was great to see the girls older and how they friendship had developed as well as how they had grown as individuals. It was quite a sad book though so you definitely have to be in the mood to be able to enjoy it.
