The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants - Ann Brashares

My friend tried to persuade me to read this book at the beginning of my teenage years and at the time I have to admit I was sceptical. I was still sceptical this summer when I bought the film from work because it was ridiculously cheap and seemed like it would be an ok flick. I put off watching it for a while. I watched it and then needed to know what happened next cue buying all five books and the second film from Amazon. 

I still haven't watched the second film or read the final book, but I have to say that this book didn't disappoint. It went into more depth than the film and although I felt some things were a little skimmed over it had plenty of depth for it's intended audience I felt.

Bridget's was my favourite of the four storylines, closely followed by Lena's. They were both the kind of Romantics that I love to dig my teeth into. Tibby's felt a little lack-lustre to me, pretty much right up until the point that Bailey dies, then Tibby became more like a real person to me. Carmen was tricky, I could kind of see where she was coming from, but to me she seemed a little shallow and as far as I could tell was mostly taking things out on the blameless. 

I'm way behind the general populace in reading these books so I was wondering if anyone else had anything to share about the storyline?

I'm linking up with Speed Date Night @ The Book Swarm.

  1. I love this story! I love how the pants add a hint of magic without being overwhelming. The characters are fab, though I agree about Tibby. Cheers!
