While I found the first book enjoyable, the sequal to the Friday Night Knitting Club was just a chore.The sigular stories seem too seperate, the charactors are overly whiney and selfih and the middle just gets trashy.I had to stop half way through becasue it had just gotten to be too much.
This sequel to Friday Night Knitting Club is a sickeningly sweet reading of the book. The first five chapters are all review of the characters in the first book. The author clearly has gone into way too much explicit detail of each character's background. The characters could have been brought back in a much less obtrusive retelling of the first story.
I really enjoyed the Friday Night Knitting Club. I found Knit Two really touching. Yes, this is a sequal and yes, things are wrapped nicely here. But it is also an excellent story of mourning and moving forward after a major loss. Georgia is missed by everyone, including me, but she's alive in spirit. You feel her in how she profoundly affected each and every character.
This story touched me especially since I've recently lost someone very important in my life. It has comforted me in my mourning process.
May it do similarly for you.
