I prefer Audio Books and all the "Traveling Pants" books are Awesome.
Any one of the four in this series is Great.
She does a Awesome job. Love her voice.
This seemed a weaker book than the previous 3. I didn't like any of the far reaching scenarios and I especially got sick of weak men. For four books, the fathers were weak or barely existent, boyfriends were meak in actions and during arguments or discussions, husbands were just "there". I like a strong woman in a story, but I hate it when the writer makes the men ... same word ... weak. If the plots had been decent, I might have overlooked the non-character men.
For those who enjoyed the previous Traveling Pants books, this is an excellent conclusion for the series. The girls who have been introduced previously are now in their college years. Issues that were appropriately of the high school calliber have grown with the main characters. This causes a dilemna for libraries/parents, as the original content is acceptable for older middle school, while this final volume really is more high school appropriate. That being said, Brashares does a terrific job of character developement and keeping all characters separate and distinct. This is a very good "Teen Issues" book and will leave readers of the series with a sense of completion and hope for the young women that they have come to know.
I really enjoyed the previous books in this series - but was not impressed with this one at ALL. I did not like many of the storylines and felt that most of the girls "growing up" experiences were NOT the types of things I would like my teen or young-adult reading about.
This book took it to a new level. It was very realistic, but I had to have a talk with my 15-year-old daughter before I let her read it. It opened a good discussion, but this book might be a bit much for some girls due to the depiction of budding sexuality. Especially Lena's story line. It was very entertsining, and a good wrap-up to the series. I hope Ms. Cabot brings these characters back after college.
