The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants



"The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" by Ann Brashares ended up being a very quick read. I had seen the movie, so knew what was going to happen even though certain parts of the book were different (as they always are).

Synopsis: Four teenage friends are about to spend their first summer apart and plan to remain connected by sharing one very magical pair of pants, a pair of blue jenas purchased at a local consignment shop.

The movie only entails the story of the 1st book, and it is now a series of four books. It wasn't too teeny-bopper for me, but then again I like teeny-bopper movies. The book did contain some language. I would recommend both the book and the movie. I think I will enjoy the second book even more since I won't have any idea what it's about.

I kept the review short not to give anything away, but what do you think? What type of review do you like to read: one with more detail or the less the better?

I loved this book! I read it quite a few years ago when it first came out. I never saw the movie just because the book was so cute and I didn't wanna ruin it, LOL.

As for reviews, I like reviews that are short and sweet. I have some friends that are avid readers and they review on Amazon. Sheesh, some of those reviews are sooooo detailed. Sometimes giving too much away. You're was just the way I like 'em! :o)

I have just seen the movie and really liked it. I always thought I would enjoy the books. Now, you have me wanting to add them to my already-too-long library list!

I like this kind of review - just enough info but not too much detail to ruin it for me. I like to know if you liked the book or not, if you'd recommend and what you didn't like about it (language, se*ual references, plot, etc). :)

I've heard good things about those, but haven't had a chance to read them yet...

I read the first book and recently picked up the others. I thought it was really cute and very hip. I would love to see the movie.
