THREE FEMALE FRIENDS FACE MIDLIFE CRISES IN A NO-HOLDS-BARRED EXPLORATION OF SEX, MARRIAGE, AND THE FRAGILITY OF LIFE.Holly: Filled with regret for being a stay-athome mom, she sheds sixty pounds and loses herself in the world of extramarital sex. Will it bring the fulfillment she is searching for?Andrea: A single mom and avowed celibate, she watches her friend Holly's meltdown with a mixture of concern and contempt. Holly is throwing away what Andrea has spent her whole life searching for--a committed relationship with a decent guy. So what if Andrea picks up Holly's castaway husband?Marissa: She has more than her fair share of challenges--a gay, rebellious teenage son, a terminally ill daughter, and a husband who buries himself in his work rather than face the facts.As one woman's marriage unravels, another's rekindles. As one woman's family comes apart at the seams, another's reconfigures into something bigger and better. In this story of connections and disconnections, one woman's up is another one's down, and all of them will learn the meaning of friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness.Unflinchingly honest, emotionally powerful, surprisingly erotic, "Triangles "is the ultimate page-turner. Hopkins's gorgeous, expertly honed poetic verse perfectly captures the inner lives of her characters. "Sometimes it happens like that. Sometimes you just get lost."Get lost in the world of "Triangles," where the lives of three unforgettable women intersect, and where there are no easy answers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing work! 19. Juni 2012
Von Chasity Tarantino - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
`Triangles' is the first adult novel that Ellen Hopkins has written and I think it was absolutely brilliant. `Triangles' was the story of three women whose lives connect in multiple ways, some of those ways being through friendship, tragedy, and family. As these stories unfolded I really got pulled into their worlds and I couldn't get enough. Each individual story is amazing in its own way.

Marissa's story broke my heart but I think it was beautifully written and it touched me on many levels. I couldn't imagine going through what her family had to and I realize so many families out there do, which is just so devastating. It's a real eye opener and I hope more people will read this book if simply for that reason.

I feel for Andrea, she is a very strong woman who continues to get dealt a bad hand. However throughout it all she knows her daughter is all that matters, even when she stumbles into some really bad habits involving a friend's husband.

Holly however is a bit of a wild child still and if I want to be completely honest there was a few times I wanted to smack her but her story was still very entertaining and sometimes bordered on being raunchy.

Overall this book was brilliant; the writing took some amazing talent and I was addicted to it. I finished it in two days. I literally couldn't put down. Ellen Hopkins has done it again, if you haven't read any of her books, you don't know what you are missing. These will one day be considered classics as far as I am concerned. So if you haven't read her work, do it now, trust me you won't be disappointed.

`Triangles' was an amazing novel and I would recommend it to everyone.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Triangles Review 9. Mai 2014
Von Janie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I was not sure how I wanted to rate this book. Even though this was not one of my faves it was still very well written. We see a whole new side to Hopkins with this book, but still it felt so honestly written. Maybe I did not like it as much because it was not one of her YA books, something I have been used to. One thing for sure though is that her poetic side is just as prominent in this book as in all the others.

Our characters in this book are still very real and very much believable. We look into the lives of three women. Holly, who know longer feels the desire for her husband or her life as she knows it as it teeters on regret, and goes on a extramarital sex binge. Andrea, who wishes she had the life that her friend Holly so desperately runs from, and Marissa who has a life devoted to her family full of overwhelming challenges such as her terminally ill daughter and her gay son. Her husband seems to have checked out and throws himself into his work. All very real situations as Hopkins rights it with no holds barred.

I think I enjoyed Marissa's story the most. It was so open and honest, happy and sad. I felt the most emotion with her tale, I felt like I was there feeling everything Marissa was feeling. I also enjoyed how we could see each of the women's lives through the eyes of the other women. Put a whole new spin on each story being told, new perspectives.

I gotta say at first I was kinda shocked at what Hopkins was writing, but as I got into the story it made me realize that these things happen all the time. Hopkins was able to tell it very well, so much so that the readers could almost imagine that it could have been part of her own life that was being told. She writes it so that we, her readers, can feel every hurt, every happiness, every sadness and every tear.

So all you can do is read it for yourself and form your own opinion as to what you read within these pages. For me, I think a 3.5 star is fair and I am glad I got to read one of her adult books. Still written very well, very poetic and very honest. Even though it did not seem as dramatic as her YA novels are, it was still very enjoyable.

The sheer poetic format of this book makes it a wonder to read. Add three women's lives and love or search for love...and sex as their situations challenge them to make changes, and you have a startling revelation of a read. It is so good, so filled with thoughtful, poetic, sometimes poignant reflections that I must read it again both to savor the brilliance and to reflect upon the reflections. Explore life with Missy, Andrea, and Holly, their spouses, children and lovers and delve into your own challenges, desires, and dreams.
4.0 von 5 Sternen amazing adult author too!! 26. September 2013

*4.5*
i really enjoyed this book. a lot of the reviews seemed negative about the few explicit sex scenes or just that character in general but i felt that all three characters were great portrayals of the real frustrations that people have in life and yes some of the seemingly inappropriate ways that some people deal with that. it was just such a real and visceral feeling book and i just love the way that hopkins makes the verse style of writing really work. after one YA and then this book by her i'm definitely going to go back and read more. her writing just amazes me, especially the way she can make the characters come alive each in their own unique ways and again the verse style just adds to that. i definitely consider myself a fan now. and even though obviously most of the subjects written about can be hard to read you're just so drawn in that you have to keep reading even if you feel uncomfortable. just an amazing author!!

Being a huge Ellen Hopkins fan, I would recommend this book to ANYONE who is a Hopkins fan! This book is written towards adults with adult themes in sex, love, and relationships. It is really a great read though, written in verse prose. Focusing on the lives of three women in three different situations - Holly, a stay at home Mom who seeks love outside of marriage after shedding 60 pounds, Andrea - a single mom searching for love who spends much of the novel who watches her best friend Holly endure her break down, and Marissa, Holly's sister, whose marriage is falling apart as she prepares to lose her sick daughter and deal with her gay teenage son. With each of these three women's lives intertwining and affecting each other, it is an amazing story! I would recommend this novel to any adult who is looking for an interesting read or an avid Hopkins fan!
