Publisher's Summary

Return to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants... 10 years later

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Ann Brashares comes the welcome return of the characters whose friendship became a touchstone for a generation. Now Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget have grown up, starting their lives on their own. And though the jeans they shared are long gone, the sisterhood is everlasting.

Despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: the closeness that once sustained them. Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends. Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness.

Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion that they all breathlessly await. And indeed, it will change their lives forever - but in ways that none of them could ever have expected.

As moving and life-changing as an encounter with long-lost best friends, Sisterhood Everlasting is a powerful story about growing up, losing your way, and finding the courage to create a new one.

Spend some more time with the Sisterhood.

Good listen but mixed feelings

Its hard to review this book without giving anything away so I apologize before hand if you want to be totally surprised don't read my review.

By the end of this book my feelings have changed about 20x regarding how I felt about it. I'm going to say its worth the listen/read especially if your a fan of all the other Sisterhood books. But through out almost the entire book I was screaming in my head at how meek these characters were. I know they just had a shocking event happened but not 1 of them asked questions???? I know they were scared of the answers but I would STILL be asking questions. But then again we wouldn't have much of a story if they had. For 30 years old these characters haven't emotionally matured since their early 20s. By the end of the book I felt they had but it seemed that at least maybe 1 one of them should have more sense by 30 then they did (maybe Tibby was only one).

Depressing

More than depressing. I loved the Traveling Pants series, and the couple of books after, but this one is not one I would ever buy again, and would not recommend to friends. From Penny

A sweet ending for the Septembers

This last piece of the traveling pants story took a little while to get into. I think I struggled with the narration in the beginning - it starts out very buttoned up or maybe stodgy? Very careful pronunciation, not conversational at all, which would be how I hear the girls in my head. But after an hour or two, it seems to loosen up. By the end, it seemed much, much better. The story is kind of goes along with the narration...drags in the beginning...particularly with Lena and Carmen...sometimes I just wanted to shake them and make them have the necessary conversations to get their lives on track. But if another story about them was released, I'd snap it right up and listen or read it cover to cover, just like I did with this one. You can't not read the end of the series. Overall, I'm an Ann Brashares fan.

Traveling Pants at 30

It was good to catch up with the girls of the traveling pants now approaching their 30th birthday. I could not put the book down, but it is a real tear jerk-er. From beginning to end, there was sadness but with a heart warming undertone. Not the type of story I enjoy reading, but for these girls, I did.

Depressing as hell!

Least favorite book in the whole series. Every part of the narration is way too dramatic. Lena and Bridget took far too long to evolve as people. Carmen is the only one who really changed. Bridget ditches Eric for like two months- like it’s a quirky part of her personality or something? And he’s just fine with it and gives her money, no explanation? Lena is still boring and afraid to make any decisions. And like… no one thought to reach out to Brian sooner to check in or get some answers? I wish the sisterhood hadn’t ended like this. Such a dramatic reading, kind of exhausting to listen to.

Not what I expected

The mispronunciation of Greek names and cities in all the books annoys me to no end. This book was so different from all the others in the series and fell short for me. Also I don’t think it’s necessary to do accents.

The sisterhood grew up

I’ve read the book and listen to the audible version several times and, though I was blown away and shocked at first reading, the story has grown on me. Seeing the character development in this story was fantastic. I’m sad to see their story end.

A difficult listen.

I had been looking forward to this for a while, but I am sorry to say the narration let it down. There was no nuance or subtlety, and the inflections of each character were lost.

I feel like the thread of the story was lost because of the poor narration, and I struggled to finish.

A True Friendship Novel

"Dramatic" and "Emotional" would be the best words to describe this breathtaking novel. It wasn't what expected. I already thought it would have a friendship reunion but not the way this one turned out to be. It made me realise how important friendship can really be and how difficult it is to let go. It has encouraged me to read the rest of Ann Brashares series and has aspired me to write novels in the similar way when I'm older.
I would recommend this to people who enjoy reading social realism. The kind of stories that bring personal identity to it, (you can relate to it) or give sympothy and hope to those who may need it. It will bring tears to your eyes both happy and sad!
