Reviews - What do customers think about Friendship Cake: A Novel?

Friendship Cake  Apr 2, 2008
A wonderful "chick" book with heartwarming friendships. Very readable. I had read the Persian Pickle Club which was equally good. Great author.
An OK book  Jun 12, 2007
Friendship Cake is the story of five women who participate in a cookbook committee for their church. As the facilitator of the group had hoped, they get to know each other and become better friends in the process of creating the cookbook. This book was somewhat enjoyable to read, but ultimately the plot and characters were a bit thin. The characters are presented mainly in terms of problems or issues they are dealing with. Almost every chapter describes a new problem arising and a solution being reached. Each problem or issue is obviously something that the author had handpicked to represent an issue that today's churches are facing. The premise of exploring modern religious issues through fiction is a good one, but unfortunately this book was weakened instead of strengthened by its purpose. We don't get very much of a sense of the characters beyond the issues they represent, and as a result the book is less interesting than it would have been if the characters' personalities had been explored in more depth. The book has a lot going on; most of the characters encounter major life changes and have to make significant decisions during the course of the book. The resolutions to most of the issues the characters face seem a little too simple and easily reached to be realistic. Also, the moral lessons which are meant to be conveyed by the characters' situations are presented in a very obvious manner instead of being subtly worked into the plot. The plot probably would have worked better if the author had selected only a few of the issues and covered them in more depth. Still, the book did have a few real flashes of insight about the topics it addresses, and the subject matter of women's friendships made the book a pleasant light read.
National Bestseller??????????  Mar 3, 2007
I found this book to be boring, shallow and unbelievable which explains why it was a quick and easy read. That the crises these women faced were resolved in one chapter each was so unrealistic, I cannot believe this book landed a National Bestseller title and received decent reviews among readers. Very dissapointing.
Wholesome and Sweet  Jul 20, 2006
A lovely story that is simple and fun. If you would like a short tale that is heart warming and makes you understand the values that you hold throughout life in regards to friendship read this quaint story. Friendship Cake was a nice escape from the not so innocent books that we all read, just a real pleasent book.
Friendship Cake: A Novel  Jul 10, 2005
I read the book to use for our church bookclub. I enjoyed this short novel more than I thought I would. I would definitely recommend it for a all women bookclub!!
