Book Review: "The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants" - Ann Brashares

Title: The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants
Author:Ann Brashares
Release Date: 01/06/2002

Following four best friends: Lena, Tibby, Bridget and Carmen as they spend the first summer apart. They come across a pair of jeans which fits all four of them despite their size differences and make a deal to share the "special" pants. Tibby stays home for the summer, Lena goes to Greece, Carmen goes to her dad's place and Bridget goes to a football camp.

My Thoughts
I am not a keen reader of third person books however I felt that this one was well balanced to keep me hooked; changing from character to character every few pages and connecting them, occasionally, with letters to one another.

For me, I would say that my favourite character out of the four of them was Lena. I found that Bridget was slightly annoying in that she was so determinded to get something that she would never get, Tibby was a nice character to follow as her new friend Bailey helps her make a documentary and although Carmen was great standing up for herself some of the times I felt that she should just be happy although she would make her point in the book well. I liked Lena the most probably because she showed how that you should tell someone if something was misread and the best things come from confronting and telling the truth. Also I think that she is the character that I see her in me.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the other four in the series!

Recommend or not? Yes, I think so! it's an easy read and quick to get through. I have been meaning to read this book for a long while now but haven't ever got round to it, but now I have, I'm glad I didn't shove it to the pile of "never gunna read books" :)

Happy reading :D
