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.

    Story
    "I guess I am a EG fan..."

    First the narrator grated on my nerves. I didn't think I would ever get through this book. The storyline was good. But written to what seems a younger audience. Even though...well, my mother wouldn't have let me read it. Maybe EG was trying to speak to everyone but that narrator was almost too much to take. I KNOW Darcy is SUPPOSE to be LOUD even so..
    I have purchased all of the Giffen books on Audible. Something Blue redeems Darcy but that was a tough listen also. Re: this book I actually thought the movie was better and I never say that. I love books and they cannot all be bright gems but this one is still in the treasure chest....

    Story
    "Finally some good chick-lit!"

    Yeah, this isn't going to be winning a pulitzer anytime soon, but if you're at all into chick-lit, this is a good one. I enjoyed the story because I like when I find myself vacillating between agreeing and disagreeing with a character, which definitely happened here. Well worth the buy, and the narrator is great.

    "dont waste your life reading this"

    after reading "the heart of the matter" by Emily Giffin, i thought i would read some of her other titles. The heart of the matter was about redemption and forgiveness after an affair. But then i read "something Borrowed", and was sorely dissapointed. There were no virtuous or dignified characters in this book.
    The narrator of the story is an idiotic woman that has an affair with her very best friends Fiance.Every character in this book is selfish, and self absorbed. If your looking for stories in this genre, i suggest you rent the series "sex and the city" it will be far more entertaining, and interesting with more insights.The book has many flaws---its not elequently written. Frankly---i dont see how any good can come of reading this. It encourages infidelity and glamorizes deceit. There is nothing good to take away---no insights, no happy feelings. By the art on the front cover, you would think this book is about something cute. and that its entertaining. I can assure you this book is mildly, if any amount, entertaining. Not worth the time or money to read this.

    "yuck"
    What disappointed you about Something Borrowed?

    barely liked the main characters and found the constant internal dialogue extremely boring. I know some people can relate to this book but I am so glad that I just can't. If a girlfriend of mine went through this drama, I really wouldn't want to hear all about it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by Kate Atkinson.


    Did Jennifer Wiltsie do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    yes!


    What character would you cut from Something Borrowed?

    Dex.


    Any additional comments?

    nah.

    "Underwhelming"

    I can't believe I listened to this entire story waiting for it to get better. The Darcy character was too extreme, I grew entirely exhausted of hearing the name in the text over and over. Ridiculous is the word that comes to mind when describing the plot, Rachel is a sniveling second bester, Dex is too flawless, Ethan too supportive. It's so unrealistic it's unbearable.

    "Something Better..."

    I liked the narrator and the story was good but it just didn't sit well with me. The story is very hard to believe and I hated Dex. He was scumb and trying to make it all work in the end left me feeling kind of sick. I was expecting something better. (I gave it 3 stars because the narrator is so good.)

    I think the narrator did a great job and I found myself invested in the story. I would recommend the book to anyone.

    "Excellent"

    This audio book is great: I wanted to read the book prior to watching the movie; now I can't wait to see the movie to see if it does the book any justice

    "super slow"

    This has to be one of the worst books I've listened to. It moved so slow - it was all I could do to make it to the end. In fact I ended up skipping large chunks just to get to the end hoping that the ending would make it all worth while... that wasn't the case. I got really tired of the main character whining and rationalizing her life as a door mat and a cheater. Its written as a long winded monolog in her head - which is not an interesting place to be.
