My all-time favorite book... I've read it three times, and it never gets old. By describing three generations of women, from Buggy to Vivi to Sidda, Wells creates a picture of the complicated mother-daughter dynamic, giving background glimpses to help us understand what makes them tick. Vivi especially is a character of depth - she makes me love her one minute and hate her the next, a pattern that adds to her authenticity. And oh, the Ya-Ya's. This is a group of girls who defy the common definition of "family," proving that the bond between friends can be the most powerful thing in the world.
Great book! I love the fact that it seems real, the characters go through issues in life that anyone would go through.... any book that can make me cry is a definite recommendation!
Love, Love, Love this book.
This book is a very fun read! It's a great story about friends, family, and growing up. I definitely recommend reading it!
My favorite book of all time!!! I love it.
Great book, as so many others have said. I've never seen the movie, so the book was judged on it's on merit.
Totally enjoyed--a bookclub hit!!!!
Great book. Sounds like my relationship with my mother half the time. Quick read. Good laughs. A lot about bonding.
A fun book about the friends, family, the South, and all the things that drive us crazy about relationships.
I enjoyed this book. Made me wish for my own ya-ya sisterhood.
Girl Power Southern Style!!
This is a great book, enjoyed it more than the movie.
Over the years I've read many, many great books. Great as they may have been, only a very small pool of them can I vividly remember or even recommend. This book will be one that will stick with me. The storytelling was magical and transporting. My eldest daughter was reading this at the same time I was and we both loved it.
I didn't read, but I assume it is like the movie.
