With the "friend-drama" I think there are two directions an author can go: the trade-paperback-beach read, or a more highbrow stylized story such as the gripping and twisted The Secret History by Donna Tartt. This book was definitely the latter. although not nearly as intense as TSH. The reader should easily identify with one or more of the characters, and the plot of each woman's life (five years since Smith with flashbacks) is interesting. It slightly felt like a guilty pleasure read, but one I would highly recommend to others. I had a hard time putting it down, although I found the last 60 pages or so to go in a very strange direction that didn't seem to align with the story to that point. I would be curious to hear what others think of the TWIST.
