You MUST read Friday Night Knitting Club for Knit Two to make any sense. You will LOVE Friday Night Knitting Club and you will WANT to read Knit Two. However, you will be very disappointed. Knit Two takes more than 15 chapters to FINALLY find it's voice. When it finally does, the story line is weak. You are able to catch up with "old friends" however this book almost makes you "not really care". I know that this is a stong and negative review and I hope that you do read and form your own oppinions. I WANT to like this book and I WANT to not be disappointed...but fact is...I am, and I'm afraid you will be too.
It was great to see what the girls have been up to! Anita still remains my favorite character. Knit Two takes most of the gang to Italy for the summer. A few go for work, a few go for pleasure and one goes out on a mission to find a long lost relative. I enjoyed reading Knit Two, but The Friday Night Knitting Club had more depth and was a better book overall. If you enjoyed the prequel, you will enjoy this book.
Certainly not as good as the first book, it did take you back to the knitting club. It appeared to be written in a hurry, in order to probably sell to all the fans of the first book, but I would have waited longer to have a better developed story. There is alot of infighting between the members and you see people in a new light that just wasn't as captivating as the first book, but then maybe the entire idea was that georgia was the glue that kept the club together and the friendshhips strong. In the end it becomes a good story of lasting friendships and it certainly opens itself up for a book three. I hope that the time is taken to write book three to help me fall in love with the characters again as i did in the first book.
this book was a sad disappointment to me. it was hard to get involved into the lives of the characters. there was no connections and i found myself not caring about what happened. ultimately, i gave up and didn't even finish this sequel.
This is one of those story's I wish could go on forever. I not only cheered the characters on - they became my friends:)
