The Friday Night Knitting Club | [Kate Jacobs]

The Friday Night Knitting Club

Walker & Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club is the ad hoc creation of some of Georgia's regulars, who stroll into the shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. Once a week, they gather to work on their latest projects and to chat - and occasionally clash - over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

Publisher's Summary

Walker & Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club is the ad hoc creation of some of Georgia's regulars, who stroll into the shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. Once a week, they gather to work on their latest projects and to chat - and occasionally clash - over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

However, unexpected changes soon throw these women's lives into disarray, and the shop's comfortable world gets shaken up like a snow globe. When the unthinkable happens, they realize what they've created - not just a knitting club, but a sisterhood.

    "Yuck."

    The narration wasn't real great. The characters weren't likable, except for the daughter, Dakota, possibly. I got the feeling the author has something against the idea of children born within a marriage and marriage in general. This book left me frowning in disappointment.

    "Just couldn't care enough"

    I tried to like this, but just couldn't care enough about any of the characters to - - well, care. Just not well paced or interesting.

    "light reading"

    No heavy reading (listening) here. A simple story that made me want to learn how to knit.

    "Waste of time"

    I agree with other reviewers who wondered how this book ever made it as a best seller. I guess for those who love the Danielle Steele genre it may be fine. I enjoy some "fluff" once in a while but this started off light,it was predictable and the depressing ending was not at all necessary.
