Kurzbeschreibung

20. Mai 2014
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Emily Giffin, the beloved author of such novels as Something Borrowed and Where We Belong, returns with an extraordinary story of love and loyalty—and an unconventional heroine struggling to reconcile both.

 
Thirty-three-year-old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas—a small college town that lives and dies by football, a passion she unabashedly shares. Raised alongside her best friend, Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s legendary head coach, Clive Carr, Shea was too devoted to her hometown team to leave. Instead she stayed in Walker for college, even taking a job in the university athletic department after graduation, where she has remained for more than a decade.
 
But when an unexpected tragedy strikes the tight-knit Walker community, Shea’s comfortable world is upended, and she begins to wonder if the life she’s chosen is really enough for her. As she finally gives up her safety net to set out on an unexpected path, Shea discovers unsettling truths about the people and things she has always trusted most—and is forced to confront her deepest desires, fears, and secrets.
 
Thoughtful, funny, and brilliantly observed, The One & Only is a luminous novel about finding your passion, following your heart, and, most of all, believing in something bigger than yourself . . . the one and only thing that truly makes life worth living.

4.0 von 5 Sternen PERFECT PAIRING OF READER AND STORY 5. August 2014
Format:Audio CD
Perfect pairing of reader and story for this tale of a young woman who was born and raised in a small Texas town. Narrator Sofia Willingham is from Austin, Texas, and there is just enough of a Southwestern lilt in her voice to give Giffin’s book in audio form a stamp of authenticity. Willingham reads as if she’s telling, as if she actually knew protagonist Shea Rigsby. A pleasure to listen!

With The One & Only Emily Giffin again proves herself a master story teller as she creates imperfect, sometimes funny but always likable characters. She puts them in situations to which we can easily relate and understand. In this case, 33-year-old Shea has spent all of her life in Walker, Texas, a small college town like many others in the Lone Star State - totally devoted to football. Shea shares that enthusiasm as well as a close friendship with Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s head coach, Clive Carr.

Shea has worked happily for the past ten years at the college’s athletic department, but when unexpected tragedy strikes she wonders whether or not she has chosen the right life path after all. When the opportunity arises for her to make a major change she goes for it - she moves to Dallas to be a sports writer and before long finds romance with a former Walker super star who is now playing in the NFL. This would seem to be a dream come true.

But does this new life bring her happiness?

I am glad I got to read this work. It is a brilliant piece of art that is well-written and with a superbly constructed story line. The characterization is excellent too and reminds me of Tanya in Splendid Comets. It is also informative. I like to come away from reading a book more informed. Kudos.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Unexpected Love Story...For The Open Minded 27. August 2014
Von Amanda Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm getting a real 'Annie Wilkes from MISERY' vibe reading some of these reviews. I think it's interesting--and a bit sad--that some
reviewers are trashing this book because they don't agree with the behavior of the main character. (It seems as though they are passing moral judgment and reviewing Shea's behavior and not the novel itself). Creating morally complex situations and characters would seem to be Emily Giffin's trademark and what makes her such an interesting writer. She doesn't do cliches or predictable story lines. She consistently puts her characters in difficult situations in order to explore the murky gray area of relationships. She did this in Something Borrowed; again in Love the One You're With; and certainly in Heart of the Matter. This is also what she does in THE ONE AND ONLY. Look, you may not agree with Shea's choices or her "decision" about who to love, but I believe that is actually the point of the story. We can't decide who to love --and trying to balance our desires with the expectations of others can be a tricky proposition at best, and cause quite a bit of heartache. I applaud Emily's brave story and hope that she continues to be true to herself, as it takes real courage to follow your heart. If you have an open mind about love and life, you will absolutely love this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Giffin is a pro in this genre 26. August 2014
Von Carol Balawyder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Aside from the football talk, which was way too much (although Giffin really did her research on this) I found The One & Only to be a good read. I thought that the way she handled grief, friendship, love and father/daughter relationship to be very compelling. Her writing is sharp,clean and flowed. You can tell that she's a pro in this genre - interesting vocabulary, great dialogue and her protagonist's relationship with her best girlfriend was endearing. In her final paragraph Giffin offers wonderful advice regarding victory: effort, passion, faith...what she likely put into writing this book.
