The Friendship Club: A Novel

We rated this book:


The Friendship Club is a sweet story about a group of women and is centered around main character, Marnie, who has her own successful cooking show on tv. The story takes place in Reno, Nevada and the group consists of Marnie, her production assistant Ellen, her intern Sophia, a woman named Nettie, and her very pregnant daughter Bella. The lives of these women intersect everyday and both Marnie and Ellen who are a little older both end up finding that life in their later years can still be good, albeit different.

This book was well-written, although the women were a little annoying with the exception of Marnie who was very strong and the leader of the group. Ellen is vey wishy washy, Bella is all hormones, and Sophia makes a really stupid decision which gets her into trouble that she runs away from. I think Sophia is the worst character because her actions affect everyone in the story, especially her adoptive father, Sam, who is probably my second favorite character aside from Marnie.

Overall, this book is a very good ready about friendship, helping others, and generational differences.
