On one hand, Girl Talk: Letters Between Friends grabbed hold of my emotions right away, so I really cared what happened to Meg, Victoria, Patrice, and Jackie. All four women, as well as the minor characters in the story, had clearly defined personalities and everyone seemed to be three-dimensional. Also, the imagery was vivid and realistic and the women were all likable. I could identify with bits and pieces of each one of them. I would have loved to be part of their group.
On the other hand, the women -- especially Victoria and Jackie -- seemed to be archetypes of women in opposing roles rather than actual women who were struggling to make sense of their changing places in society. Another thing that I didn't like was that the passing years and the changing events were not only so random as to be confusing, but they didn't actually match up to one timeline. I finally just stopped trying to match the definitely given years (in the beginning of each chapter) with corresponding events in the women's lives. Many of the chapters ended too abruptly and sometimes left questions that were never answered.
Overall, reading this story was a very positive experience and I would recommend it to a friend with some qualifications.
This book is very well written. By reading the letters they write to each other, you get to experience their lives, happiness, sadness, triumphs and failures, and truly come to care for them all.
This book shows what we are missing today, with letter writing becoming such a dying art. It truly makes me want to sit down with a pad of paper and pen and start writing to everyone I know.
Absolutely wonderful story.
I can easily understand the appeal of this set of letters. It is a unique and efficient way to tell a story, but the highs and lows were not earned with a certain depth of characterization that would have made it a bit more interesting and compelling. If you are a reader who enjoys in-depth characterization and nuance as opposed to large-scale brief summations of entire lifetimes, I would be cautious with this book. It by no means is a complete waste of time, but I found any impact I it had on me to be rather disappointing. I rather regret being so cynical, critical, and skeptical of works of fiction, but it did not appeal to me even in spite of all that.
