5.0 out of 5 stars If you read `SOMETHING BORROWED' this is an absolute must..., June 9, 2005
This review is from: Something Blue (Hardcover)
...And if you didn't run out and purchase both of these amazing books!! I thoroughly enjoyed Emily Giffin's debut novel `SOMEHTING BORROWED' where Rachel, who always played second fiddle to her beautiful, outgoing (self-centered & narcissistic) best friend Darcy Rhone, happened to find the love of her life in Darcy's fiancé. Giffin took this taboo subject and put a witty and engrossing spin on it without making light of the situation. However, I only gave that book four stars because of what I felt were loose ends. I wanted to know what happened to Darcy after she found out about her best-friend and fiancés betrayal as well as how the secondary characters reacted to the news. Well, I had no idea that Giffin intended to do one better than just tying up a few loose ends with an extra chapter or two at the end of `SOMETHING BORROWED'. Instead she gave fans of the first book this gem of a novel that picked up perfectly where the other left off.

`SOMETHING BLUE' begins right after Darcy discovers Rachel and Dex's affair and although she too has had an affair and now finds herself pregnant as a result, she is determined to make the lives of everyone who she feels had wronged her miserable. As one of the other reviewers stated Giffin does not change the character of Darcy a bit, she is still as self-centered and narcissistic as ever, however, now she has another life to worry about, yet cant seem to quite get that through her head. But when she decides to move to London with long time friend Ethan she is forced to take a closer look at the person she is and determine what kind of person and mother she wants to become.

Giffin really outdid herself with `SOMETHING BLUE', which stands to make `SOMTHIGN BORROWED' even better. I highly recommend buying both of these wonderful books together and reading them back-to-back, you will not be disappointed! A great second novel by a very talented and creative new author!!
