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 kudos 22. Mai 2014
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
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.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A Rare Miss for Emily Giffin 22. Mai 2014
Von belleTX - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The cover is not the only thing different about this book. It lacks the quality, realistic characters, and masterful character development that fans of Emily Giffin's work have come to expect. I have enjoyed Giffin's other books and bought this the day it came out. I found it to be a major disappointment, and I had to force myself to finish it. What makes Giffin's books so enjoyable is that the characters and situations are usually pretty relatable. Even if you haven't personally had their experiences, you could have, or you almost did, or you know someone who has. I could not relate to this book or its characters at all - and I'm roughly the same age as the main character, from Texas, and very familiar with Texas football culture.

Shea is easily the worst protagonist Giffin has ever created. She's boring and one dimensional. What does she enjoy other than football and its players? We don't really know. Shea loves to spout off random football statistics and facts, and there are entire pages that consist of nothing but namedropping football players, sports terminology, and statistics. We get it. These people like football. If I wanted to read page after page of Heisman Trophy winners, I'd pick up Sports Illustrated. I was half expecting to see footnotes inserted by Giffin that said, "LOOK!! I did my research!! FOOTBALL STATS. TEXAS. SPORTS WRITERS!!!"

The storylines and romantic relationships are baffling. Despite the way that Shea casually puts down groupies throughout the book, all three of her boyfriends are associated with the local football team. And none of these men have anything remotely in common other than their association with the football team... but she's not a groupie.

Her first boyfriend is an idiot and a loser who really serves no purpose other than to set up the main love interest, which I could see coming from the first chapter but hoped I was wrong about because it was so perverse. The second boyfriend is a celebrity who is inexplicably infatuated with Shea and, also inexplicably, completely changes his personality halfway through the book to create a contrived hero/rescue sequence for Shea and her final love interest: the man who has been a father figure to her for her entire life.

Why is Coach interested in Shea like this having basically helped raise her? When did he start having feelings for her? Shea's obsession with Coach Carr and his reciprocation of her feelings felt so inappropriate and bizarre. I just couldn't root for these characters. The book is full of Texas/Dallas cliches and namedropping (Camp Waldemar and Highland Park - Snobby Socialites! SMU - Rich Kids! Hockaday - Rich Girls! Rice - Smart! UT - Hook em Horns! Texas - barbecued ribs solve any problem!!) Maybe non-Texans will not be bothered by this, but as someone who grew up in Texas, I found myself rolling my eyes. Between that, the nonsensical relationships, and the pages and pages of "look how much I know about sports!!" filler, it was a struggle to get through the book and a bit of a relief when it was over.

I was very involved with the characters. This book was a real page turner for me! If you've enjoyed other books by this author, you'll enjoy this one, also.

I have read every one of Emily Giffin's novels and this was truly my favorite by far. She is a better writer with each new novel she writes. I like football but I'm not a huge fan, this book made reading about it so much fun.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another great read from Ms. Giffin. 2. Juni 2014
Von The Every Free Chance Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. It kept me hooked from beginning to end. I didn’t want to put it down.

Shea Rigsby isn’t your average woman. She is a die-hard Walker Broncos fan. She knows football like most people know the back of their hands. It’s not a “here are a few talking points that I ripped from the headlines” knowledge; it’s a “I memorized every Sports Illustrated article ever written and I could call most of the plays and be right” type of knowledge. I liked Shea from the beginning.

Lucy kind of rubbed me the wrong way. She is Shea’s best friend, but she’s going through a hard time. She just lost her mom, and she is realizing that she isn’t that close to her dad, the infamous Coach Carr. Lucy also realizes that Shea has a closer relationship with her dad than she does. Coach Carr is your stereotypical good-guy coach. I liked him from the beginning. But I was surprised by a few things. Ryan James — hotshot quarterback for the Cowboys, Walker alum — is back in town and after Shea. He definitely rubbed me the wrong way, but he had some good moments, too. There’s a story there.

There was only one story line–Shea’s dad, his wife, and their daughter–that seemed like it didn’t really belong. I didn’t quite see how it fit into the big picture. I got the point with Shea’s dad, and he fit in well with the story. But the wife and daughter were distractions in an otherwise great story.

The One & Only was another great read from Ms. Giffin. I will definitely buy a hard copy of this book to add to her other books sitting on my shelves. The story makes you happy, sad, giddy, excited, stressed, angry, you name it. All of this and great football moments as well. It was as if I were watching the plays instead of reading them. I felt like I was there rooting for the Walker Broncos along with Shea.

Would I recommend it: Absolutely! Ms. Giffin is an always buy author for me.

(I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great read if you are an Emily Giffin fan. Just not my favorite by her 16. Juni 2014
Von Kim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Emily is one of my favorite authors so this is a must have for sure, not even knowing the story line... That being said I didn't like this book as much as the others, very well written as always just didn't care for the ending etc.. This is just my preference, would of liked a different outcome.. So this is still a must have and most people will love this, I just didn't like the ending.. I didn't agree with it and didn't want it to end that way, so now I don't want there to be a sequel since I didn't care for how it ended...ugh.. I love a great book that makes you want more etc.. Like you have to have another book to see where the characters end up etc..you need and want more, this is dead in the water to me and I just want to forget it.. Love the football part of it and everything but the ending really disappointed me...
