  1. Hello, my name s Dorothy Koomson and I ll try to make this bit that s all about me as interesting as possible.I wrote my first novel called There s A Thin Line Between Love And Hate when I was 13 I used to write a chapter every night then pass it around to my fellow convent school pupils every morning, and they seemed to love it.I grew up in London and then grew up again in Leeds when I went to university I eventually returned to London to study for my masters degree and stayed put for the following years I took up various temping jobs and eventually got my big break writing, editing and subbing for various women s magazines and national papers.Fiction and storytelling were still a HUGE passion of mine and I continued to write short stories and novels every spare moment that I got In 2001 I had the idea for The Cupid Effect and my career as a published novelist began And it s been fantastic In 2006, third novel, My Best Friend s Girl was published It was incredibly successful selling nearly 90,000 copies within its first few weeks on sale Six weeks later, it was selected for the Richard Judy Summer Reads Book Club and the book went on to sell over 500,000 copies Oh, there I go again, this is meant to be about me, not my novels.Okay, back to me I recently spent two years living in Sydney Australia, and now I m back in England But I can t say for how long I ll be in the UK for because I ve been well and truly bitten by the travel bug

  2. My Best Friend s Girl was a LOT better than I d expected it to be I don t know why I wasn t expecting too much of it I mean, after all I bought it, surely I must have felt it was worth reading I think my problem is that I d gotten to the point where I felt good chick lit is hard to find, and that this one would be as shallow as the rest Fortunately I was mistaken I laughed and cried in turn practically from page one It s an extremely moving story and one that has you guessing right to the very e [...]

  5. Started out amazing I cried buckets over the first couple of chapters Then it turned into a bad soapie, with far fetched scenarios the boss decides to spend the weekend at the girl s house because he likes the kid, even though he despises her, because he s got nothing better to do I don t think so The main character was annoying and made stupid decisions Her confusion over whether she loves one guy than another was also stupid and annoying I was also left feeling frustrated that she hadn t deal [...]


  6. I was laughing and crying from page one Adele ParksThis book exceeded my expectations I fell in love with the blurb and it urged me to buy it but I never thought I could fall in love than I already am It was a perfect mix of a heart warming and gut wrenching story I thought I knew how the story would roll and that I would just need to be filled with the little gaps in between but I was wrong I never even guessed the ending.Koomson did a perfect job in characterization because they felt so real [...]


  7. Dobra knjiga o prijateljstvu, onom pravom, o gubitku povjerenja, povrije enosti, bje anju, vra anju, alosti i alovanju, o ljubavi.Univerzalni komentar za ovu knjigu bio je pripremite maramice Mo da ba zato to su te maramice toliko puta nagla ene, mo da ih zato ja nisam trebala Nisam se mogla pretjerano povezati s karakterima glavnih junakinja, ni s Adele a jo manje s Kamryn, iako sam i sama introvert i nepovjerljivog karaktera, Kamryn mi karakterom nikako nije sjela Nije mi uvjerljiva tolika kol [...]

  12. About a quarter of the way through this book, I almost decided not to read the rest of it, which is very unusual for me I was not finding any of the adult characters likeable, and was not enjoying reading about them I decided to keep trying to go on, and before long, I finally started to empathize with the characters barely enough to care what became of them The main character, Kamryn Matika, is given a huge shock when her estranged dying friend, Adele, asks her to raise her child The two became [...]


  13. It takes a special kind of book to bring tears to your eyes I can count on one hand the amount of books that have made me shed tears in their wake, this being one of the first.Best friends Adele and Kamryn are inseperable in their formative years until one makes the terrible decision to sleep with the others fiance Picking up a few years later, Adele shows up at Kamryn s door begging her to adopt her little girl.It is easy to see why this novel became so successful, and an international bestsell [...]

  15. From the moment I finished it I felt that my rating for this book would be very different from the majority of my fellow readers I picked up this book from the small library at work, checked the premise, checked the reviews I thought I d have a great read but no It didn t click with me.The beginning was interesting and the premise seemed to promise a challeging read, in what my feelings were concerned, going through Kamryn and Tegan s new life Unfortunately, in my opinion, after the major plot p [...]



  16. Li este livro a uma velocidade incr vel, comecei na 6 noite e no dia seguinte, ao in cio da noite, j estava terminado um livro muito tocante e comovente, tendo por v rias vezes come ado a chorar e outras a fazer um esfor o para que tal n o acontecesse.Na primeira parte do livro, Kamryn, ap s receber um postal de anivers rio por parte de Adele, vai ter com ela ao hospital, nunca acreditando que Adele est t o doente No entanto, Adele sofre de leucemia e resta lhe pouco tempo de vida, e pede a Kamr [...]


  17. I had some big expectations of this book With all the high ratings and praise it was given, I was thoroughly looking forward to this book I expected high emotions and a great story, which is what I got But the execution of the story itself is what disappointed me I ll tell you why At the beginning the interaction of Ryn and Del felt genuine and I enjoyed that All the way up to Ryn interacting with Tegan was great But then once Luke and Nate got involved, it was just so over the place I just felt [...]


  18.

  19. I ve just re read this, having originally read it nearly 10 years ago I had forgotten much of the detail but I can say this book was like a magnet, I couldn t look away It is a bittersweet tale of love, grief and relationships There are a number of sections in this book that pack such an emotional punch, that it takes your breath away and floods your eyes Koomson has a very inviting writing style I felt drawn in close to the characters Adele is gravely ill and needs to ensure her daughter Tegan [...]



  20. Uma hist ria sobre uma amizade posta prova Seria capaz de perdoar um amigo que o tra u e magoou Pode uma crian a curar feridas passadas e fazer ressurgir a verdadeira amizade Uma li o de vida Fant stico

  23. Next book on the list that I am reading with a friend from work Just read the first chapter so far, but it seems good It wasn t horrible, except the characters all had the morals of back alley cats in heat After page 238 I just couldn t rad any It wasn t graphic, but the reader knows what happened and it was just plain sad The premise of the book is that the best friend slept with the main character s fiancee, causing the fiance and main character to break up Being that was a major plot point, I [...]


  24. um livro cheio de emo es, chorei quando a Adele morreu, ri com as aventuras de Kamryn e Tegan, uma leitura agrad vel que nos faz ver que as coisas nem sempre s o o que parecem e que devemos sempre ouvir as explica es antes de julgar algu m, pois se Kamryn tivesse dado essa hip tese a Adele talvez a hist ria entre elas tivesse terminado de outra forma, sem Kamryn sentir culpa por tudo o que deixou por dizer tamb m um livro que nos mostra que de nada adianta tentar fugir dos problemas ou do passad [...]


  25. This is a surprisingly sweet story It looks like chicklit, and I think it certainly tried to sell itself as chicklit based on cover copy and design, but evades that genre with sweetness and depth Honestly, I could have done without Kamryn s romantic struggles and would have preferred to see focus on her growing relationship with Tegan, her adopted daughter The book was an overall enjoyable read, but I feel like it broke down at the end and felt false and rushed.


  26. Aww, this book was really cute For the most part I enjoyed the characters, but sometimes they were a bit annoying And the relationships forming between some of them felt a bit rushed Maybe not for them, but Before you knew it several weeks had passed and it was just quickly explained how their relationships had developed over that time rather than being shown The book was also a Little bit predictable Overall, I did enjoy it, though.


  27. This book is BEAUTIFUL Brilliant It made me cry, it made me laugh It s a tale of friendship, betrayal, forgiveness and love.The best character in is Tegan the little girl you fall in love with her the minute she appears in the book.This is an excellent book,it is a must read.
