Publisher's Summary

Rachel has always been a good girl--until her 30th birthday, when her best friend Darcy throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé Dex. Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for Dex. She prays for fate to intervene, but when she makes a choice she discovers that the lines between right and wrong are blurry, endings aren't always neat, and you have to risk all to win true happiness.

    "Giffin does it again"

    I don't know what it is about Emily Giffin's books, but I am always hooked from the first minute. Maybe because she includes references to Andy Gibb, the Brady bunch, or any one of a million things I remember from my youth? Or maybe it is just a good story, interesting characters? While I know it is "chick lit", it is a cut above the rest of the genre. Good narration, too.

    "light and harty"

    This novel was a refreshingly light novel. The characters were well developed and the issues presented in the story line were very realistic. I enjoyed every minute of this listen and felt as though I were watching a scandalous lifetime movie. Whenever I stopped the audiobook I looked forward to the next time I would have to pick it up.

    Story
    "A Vapid Story About Vapid People"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book could have become a 4 or 5 star listening experience for me if the characters were actually likable and not the one dimensional vapid things they were. You wonder why Rachel was ever friends with Darcy - even as children Rachel complains about Darcy stealing her crush, copying her taste in bag and other trivial slights. Rachel's resentment of Darcy grows as they become adults, with Rachel constantly bemoaning Darcy's "enchanted life" and feeling as though she always gets the raw deal. It is disgusting to listen to Rachel rationalise sleeping with Dex, Darcy's fiancée.


    Has Something Borrowed turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. This was just a very bad book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Wiltsie?

    It wouldn't make a difference who narrated the book, it's still tripe.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Something Borrowed?

    I would have thrown back the draft and told the author to re-do it with more relatable characters.

    "Jennifer Wiltsie is the bomb.com"

    Jennifer Wiltsie is the bomb.com she's the best reader I have ever heard and 1/2 the reason I'm even going to listen to the next book in the series. I'm not a huge fan of the story, but I know I enjoyed it so much more listening to this audiobook version.

    "Disappointed"

    I was looking for a fun book, but was disappointed. It read like a teenage, romance novel, for 30 year olds. Started out interesting, but I got bored mid way thru. The narration was good.

    "Good story, didn't like the narrator"

    I saw the movie first and wanted to give the book a try. I rarely think this, but the movie was better, in my opinion. Ethan's character was better in the movie. The narrator I didn't like so much. Her voice just didn't match the character. I was expecting a Ginnifer Goodwin type of voice, naturally, and instead I got a much older sounding lady that didn't seem to grasp Rachel's personality. I will still read/listen to the next books as I do love the story and characters and the narrator is different in the next book, which is about Darcy's character, and the reviews are good.

    "Meh"

    Ok in the beginning, dragged on in the middle, ok in the end. Wouldn't recommend. Might give the next book in the series a try to see if it gets better.

    "loved it!"

    I think I loved the book better than the movie. The book gave me the filler that I needed. The narrator did an excellent job! I was totally engulfed in the story.
