By E. Canevari on February 26, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is the worst book I've ever read. The authors spent more time cracking jokes in EVERY paragraph than making a point. I found the book childish and seemed like the only person who would benefit from reading it would be someone who was living alone, in an underground bunker for the first 20 years of their life, it's all COMMON SENSE. I was given this book, but NEVER would have picked it for myself, or anyone else!

I might have given this book two stars if it had been marketed in the greeting card section as a novelty item.

Friend or Frenemy is so filled with in-the-moment references that most (if not all) of the tongue-in-cheek humor now falls completely flat. Really -- who cares about Britney Spears pathetic performance at the 2007 Video Music Awards? If this book was published this year (2010), I have no doubt it would be filled with snarky observations and comparisons about Lindsey Lohan's legal drama and Bravo TV's dismal lineup of "real housewives."

The advice in this book is silly bordering on ridiculous. The book takes itself too seriously to be an out-and-out humor book, but it's also too shallow to offer any helpful advice or insight about friendship.

Friend or Frenemy is the type of book that anyone can relate to. I felt like I was reading my life! Girls have a different relationship with their friends than guys do, and reading this book puts every girl in your life into a perfect category. I loved loved loved the book.

This was such a fun, light read! It was like having an iced coffee with a really trendy friend that is really "in the know" about pop culture. This book isn't deeply introspective, but I wouldn't call it simple or shallow or simplistic . . . or maybe it was, and that's exactly what makes it such a fun read!
