Something Borrowed - Emily Giffin

>> Saturday, November 17, 2007

In reading this book I found myself actually feeling like a part of the book myself. Emily has a way to include you in her story line, I am very excited to read the next couple of books in this series and hopefully she will write more in the same series or branch off into another one.

Something Borrowed is told from the perspective of Rachel, an average woman struggling with life after turning thirty. Rachel works in a law firm while living in New York City along with her best friend, Darcy. At the thirtieth birthday party of her best friend, who happens to be stunningly beautiful, very successful and engaged, the very average Rachel commits the ultimate betrayal with Dex, Darcy's fiancee.

But at the end is a surprising twist that leaves you aching for more, to further yourself along in the story.

Throughout the novel, I was intrigued by the encounters between Rachel and Darcy, and between Darcy and Dex, and found myself wondering, "Will Darcy find out Rachel's secret and will the plain Jane come out on top for once?" Rachel confides in one person, her childhood friend, Ethan, who currently resides in London. The characters and personalities that come to life are real, wonderful, and captivating.
