Reviews

"[A] modern-day Jane Austen." --Vanity Fair "Giffin's writing is warm and engaging. Readers will find themselves cheering for Darcy as she proves people can change in this captivating tale." --Booklist (starred review) "Highly entertaining...Despite a happy ending, Giffin raises thorny questions. A long friendship can (like marriage) turn claustrophobic or abusive. Is infidelity the solution? And why are pretty girls so easily taken in by scheming Plain Janes?" --Boston Globe "[Giffin's] plotting and prose are so engaging that she quickly becomes a fun, friendly presence in your reading life." --Chicago Sun-Times "The author's impressive knack for intimacy and insight sparkles in this delightful novel." --Hamptons magazine "SOMETHING BLUE goes beyond the traditional conventions in a witty and compelling way, and reaffirms a lesson we all should have learned long ago: Love doesn't need a fairy tale, fancy wrapping or a big price tag. Often, it's better without." --Charlotte Observer "Darcy is Scarlett O'Hara set in modern [day]. Giffin orchestrates [her] gradual change ingeniously...[and] successfully answers any 'Gone With the Wind' fan who wondered if, after Rhett Butler decided he didn't give a damn, Scarlett ever morphed into someone softer." --Newark Star-Ledger "Smartly written. The dialogue is real with lightly rendered lessons about what really matters in life...Emily Giffin knows what she's doing. " --Winston-Salem Journal "Emily Giffin's sophomore effort is a joy to read from start to finish, taking the egotistical villainess of her first novel and turning her into an unlikely heroine. Any woman who carries the scars of a broken friendship will appreciate this literary gem, which covers every emotional battleground possible--from rejection and betrayal to self-discovery and pregnancy." --CanWest "A touching depiction of one woman's surprising discoveries about the true meaning of friendship and happily-ever after. Sometimes you can lose it all, only to find everything in the end." --The State (SC) -[A] modern-day Jane Austen.- --Vanity Fair -Giffin's writing is warm and engaging.
