About a quarter of the way through this book, I almost decided not to read the rest of it, which is very unusual for me. I was not finding any of the adult characters likeable, and was not enjoying reading about them.
I decided to keep trying to go on, and before long, I finally started to empathize with the characters barely enough to care what became of them. The main character, Kamryn Matika, is given a huge shock when her estranged dying friend, Adele, asks her to raise her child. The two be About a quarter of the way through this book, I almost decided not to read the rest of it, which is very unusual for me. The two became estranged two years previously when Kamryn found out that Adele's daughter, Tegan, whom Kamryn loves, is the product of an affair between Adele and Kamryn's fiance, Nate.
Kamryn broke off both relationships and moved away. After Adele dies, Kamryn does her best with Tegan, and they both become attached to Kamryn's boss, Luke. Before long, Nate comes back into the picture, and Kamryn's relationship with Luke is threatened, both by Nate and by Luke's feelings for a former fiance.
I thought that all of the characters acted childish much of the time, and I didn't ever feel that either Kamryn or Luke were really committed to each other. I didn't mind that the characters were flawed, but the descriptions Kamryn constantly gave of herself as being unfriendly and unlikeable made it difficult for me to warm up to her.
I did like the way she tried so hard to do what was right for Tegan. Luke came across as a really nice sympathetic guy most of the time, but it was hard to get past how nasty he was to Kamryn when they met, and the way he made derogatory comments about her looks and weight when they first met.
The premise of this book made for a good story, but for me, the characters were a little too flawed and caught up in their pasts to be enjoyable. O dia de Kamryn altera-se de um segundo para o outro. Sep 07, Jacki Ford rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This book is a fabulous read!!! Very moving - the charachters are so real that you feel for them and their pain. Its a great story line and sometimes I was thought I knew how it would end but I didn't.
I cried lots and laughed a bit too but couldnt put it down and felt like I had lost a friend when it finished. Would definately recommned.
Da postoji veca ocijena, ova knjiga bi je dobila! Prepreprepreprelijepa knjiga i odusevljena sam! Od prve do posljednje stranice Ogromna preporuka.

Best friends Adele and Kamryn are inseperable in their formative years; until one makes the terrible decision to sleep with the others fiance.

It is easy to see why this novel became so successful, and an international bestseller.
Despite being Koomson's third novel, this is perhaps her best work. The social issues raised in this book were gripping at times, heartbreaking during others. It is a complete rollercoaster of emotions and a real journey through deception, courage, strength and forgiveness.
At times I felt the book to be ever so slightly tedious and a few 'scenes' felt rather irrelevent.
However, I would still highly recommend this book to those seeking a different sort of chick lit. This is not a love story in terms of romance - its a different type of love, perhaps the most forgiving. Maybe we can all learn something from adopting the essence of this story. Ipak, dvije godine kasnije Adele je na samrti i moli Kam da joj pomogne From the moment I finished it I felt that my rating for this book would be very different from the majority of my fellow readers.
I picked up this book from the small library at work, checked the premise, checked the reviews.
I thought I'd have a great read but no. It didn't click with me. The beginning was interesting and the premise seemed to promise a challeging read, in what my feelings were concerned, going through Kamryn and Tegan's new life.
Unfortunately, in my opinion, after the major pl From the moment I finished it I felt that my rating for this book would be very different from the majority of my fellow readers. Unfortunately, in my opinion, after the major plot premise was confirmed the rest of the book didn't deliver after all that build up, falling in some moments into a caricature of what it could have been.
A fast read, especially in the first half of the book, I found myself fighting to finish it. For that I can only give it 2 Stars. Infelizmente de todos este foi aquele que mais desiludiu-me. Aos poucos lia e consegui terminar. Houveram momentos nos quais admirei imenso as personagens, outros que achei as personagens completamente infantis.
Como uma pessoa consegue voltar apaixonar-se, deixar-se envolver com outra pessoa. Apr 05, Becky rated it did not like it. The book starts off with an interesting premise- your ex best friend who slept with your fiancee and fathered his child is dying and wants you to adopt her child. I thought this may lead to an interesting soul searching book with her torn between the betrayal and the stark reality of the situation, but no.
Ryn shows some sign of grief in that she cries, but that is it. No entanto, Adele sofre de leucemia e resta-lhe pouco tempo de vida, e pede a Kamryn que adopte a sua filha Tegan. Adorei o livro!!! Apr 03, Heather L rated it liked it. I had some big expectations of this book. With all the high ratings and praise it was given, I was thoroughly looking forward to this book.
I expected high emotions and a great story, which is what I got.
But the execution of the story itself is what disappointed me. I'll tell you why: At the beginning the interaction of Ryn and Del felt genuine and I enjoyed that. All the way up to Ryn interacting with Tegan was great. But then once Luke and Nate got involved, it was just so over the place. I ju I had some big expectations of this book. I just felt like the dynamics of Ryn and the men were just off somehow.
I can't really explain it. About three quarters' into the book, I was dreading the end. And once it happened, it left me feeling incomplete about the whole story itself. I don't know if I like it enough to give it 3 whole stars, but it was still good enough that I don't regret reading it.
It's funny how I've not felt like this about a book in a while. I guess you'll just have to read it and find out for yourself. Apr 05, Danderma rated it it was amazing. I have read it over and over as the loveliness of this books is just too overwhelming. I just adore this book. It is so beautifully written, so realistic, so filled with emotions you would find your self lost in the pages. Jul 06, Jen rated it did not like it Shelves: Next book on the list that I am reading with a friend from work.
Just read the first chapter so far, but it seems good. It wasn't horrible, except the characters all had the morals of back alley cats in heat. After page I just couldn't rad anymore. It wasn't graphic, but the reader knows what happened and it was just plain sad. The premise of the book is that the best friend slept with the main character's fiancee, causing the fiance and main character to break up.
Being that was a major plo Next book on the list that I am reading with a friend from work. Being that was a major plot point, I was ok with it, but when the main character told herself that it was ok, neither the former fiancee or former best friend loved the other, I got upset.
Then the main character seemed like she was going to sleep with someone, despite knowing he still loved his ex-fiancee and that he had just come form someone else's bed and I got fed up.
Not worth finishing. I've just re-read this, having originally read it nearly 10 years ago. I had forgotten much of the detail but I can say this book was like a magnet, I couldn't look away. It is a bittersweet tale of love, grief and relationships. There are a number of sections in this book that pack such an emotional punch, that it takes your breath away and floods your eyes.
Koomson has a very inviting writing style; I felt drawn in close to the characters. Adele is gravely ill and needs to ensure her daughter I've just re-read this, having originally read it nearly 10 years ago.
Adele is gravely ill and needs to ensure her daughter Tegan has guardianship. She hasn't spoken to her best friend Kamryn for two years. She has a big request to ask. The blurb is clear that tough reading is ahead but there are many unexpected twists and turns.
This is the kind of read that sticks with you but I don't choose to read them all the time. Just utterly memorable. Nov 13, Nina Draganova rated it it was amazing. Very good book but very sad.

Hello, my name's Dorothy Koomson and I'll try to make this bit that's all about me as interesting as possible.
I used to write a chapter every night then pass it around to my fellow convent school pupils every morning, and they seemed to love it. I grew up in London and then grew up again in Leeds when I went to u Hello, my name's Dorothy Koomson and I'll try to make this bit that's all about me as interesting as possible. I grew up in London and then grew up again in Leeds when I went to university.
I eventually returned to London to study for my masters degree and stayed put for the following years. I took up various temping jobs and eventually got my big break writing, editing and subbing for various women's magazines and national papers. I never even guessed the ending. Koomson did a perfect job in characterization because the "I was laughing and crying from page one.
Koomson did a perfect job in characterization because they felt so real and tangible like they were present in the same room where I was.
Their feelings and emotions felt real too. I actually have to stop every paragraph once in a while to catch my breath and calm down.
I was already struggling to stop myself from crying after I've read the prologue and to think that this book has pages was scary. Scary in a way that I might end up looking extremely horrible after I've read it with puffy and red eyes. I instantly fell in love with Tegan. She has that ability to make everyone fall in love with her without even trying. I suppose, this came from her mother and I wish we knew more of Adele but then I have to remind myself that this story is about Kamryn's journey towards acceptance, grief, forgiveness and happiness.
I understand apprehension and doubts with regards to other people and herself and I understand her the whole time I was reading the book.
