The characters were written so well that I truthfully felt as if they were real people, friends in my own life. I personally identified a little more with Sophie than the other two, but that doesn't mean they were any less enjoyable.
I really liked the "episodic" way it was written, and felt that this was the kind of story that could be easily translated into a TV show...I'm looking at you CW network!
Like it says in the description "Think Sex and the City meets Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants", I couldn't agree more! This is a fun, light-hearted and easy read that any twenty-something anywhere can enjoy.
One topic I saw several other reviewers mention was the author's use of "episodes;" most seem to find the book choppy as a result of the brief scenes. I felt very much the same as I began reading but I quickly realized that the vingettes were effective in conveying a mood. Today's world is fast-paced and hectic...especially for young adults who are still searching for themselves and their places in life. The brief "episodes" reminded me of that throughout the book. I'm not sure if that was intentional on the author's part, but well done.
There are some weird things in this book, like the author's tendancy to state things as having been happening for a long time but having not mentioned them before (ie MJ suddenly one day fixes all of the mistakes that she has apparently been making in her lab all year, when only one mistake has ever been mentioned previously, in fact she has been praised for her work beforehand). Solutions to big life problems tend to appear on their own in the course of a few pages. Occasionally the author breaks from her format of Girl 1, Girl 2, Girl 3 to add in a random paragraph that reads like a movie trailer "Its when things get difficult that they get interesting" and all that. Kind of piled on the cheese a lot too much.
All in all, it was mediocre and worth the free I paid for it, but I'm iffy if it is worth a dollar that it is now going for.
A lot of inconsistencies (they went to college in Texas but one character refers to herself as an "Ivy League" grad, for example). Characters are not well-developed, the dialogue is very unnatural, and supporting characters pop in and then just disappear without a trace at various points in the story.
Seemed like an outline for a book that needed a lot more filling out.
