As with all long term friendships, stuff happened along the way; stuff that might be better kept in the box labeled `things-we-don't-discuss'. Events from the past do get an airing though, and at times it seems as if they might cause Nina, Kate and Zoe to bury the past, forget Hannah's trip down the aisle and trip back home pronto.
The four college room-mates all have issues that need to be faced: Zoe, masks her inner fragility with a self confident exterior, Nina's child within is begging for a little loving maintenance before she is ready to give sustenance to another, Kate, has to solve the problem of who she really is or wants to be, and Hannah, the bride-to-be, is haunted by an event from the past.
There's a diverse mix of subsidiary characters who wander in and out of the story, alternately helping or hampering the best friends as they struggle to come to terms with life past and present; particularly the fork in the road marked `how to overcome the past and move on'. The author sticks to the chick-lit genre by keeping the tone of the book light and fast moving. Rebecca Bloom demonstrates considerable writing skill in juggling both the plot points and the characters in a realistic and engaging manner. The dialogue is snappy with creative use of modern language.Read more ›
I liked this book and each of the girls. I thought their stories were touched on enough but didn't feel like anyone got the shaft, and I got to know each character equally. I enjoy books that focus on great friendships between woman, and this book did just that. Why I am not giving the book four stars is because I didn't understand some of the writing. It was almost like this was written as a screenplay. For example, instead of saying something like "Zoe was angry again with what he was saying," it was written as "Angry again." I didn't quite get the clipped descriptions in a novel, and that was a bit distracting for me throughout. But other than that, a fun chick lit novel that I enjoyed reading.
This book was an excellent chic-lit read. I found the characters realistically written, with just enough humour thrown in. I also found myself rooting for Hannah with a tear in my eye. Eat, drink and Be Married is a must-have for any home library - a book you will want to read over and over again.

I hate the term "chick-lit" so I immediately become wary of anything that might be labeled as such but this book was so well-written and heartwarming, I finished it in two nights! Read morePublished on February 11, 2012 by CK
