Read full description of the books De 2e zomer van de spijkerbroek:I didn't like this one as much as the first book and I'm not sure if that's because I was so familiar with the first book due to the movie, or what.
Carmen - I can relate to her the most, but her plot was kind of melodramatic this time in my opinion. One thing I really don't understand is her relationship with her step-brother. When did they get close?
Tibby - I was pretty disappointed in Tibby, and while it's realistic that she wouldn't have changed overnight after the events of book 1, I just was annoyed with her storyline 90% of the time.
Lena - I seriously cannot deal with the insta-love going on with her story. She was literally in love with someone who'd said all of 5 words to her.
Bridget - I loved Bridget's story the most in this book. It had the most meaning, but unfortunately, there are parts to her story that were so laughable to me that it undermined the depth.
I don't know, I just want more showing to back up all the telling. At least, in my experience I remain unconvinced of a lot of what the girls are going through. Carmen is the only character who I feel any connection with because she is always so emotionally charged. I feel like I really know why she feels how she does and see her raw reactions. There is so much potential in Tibby and Bridget's stories and while I'm told 'this is a sad thing' over and over, I'm not really seeing them reacting.
We spend so little time in each character's POV before it switches to the next girl that I feel like I'm only getting to know them on a surface level despite the very important topics the book is trying to get at. I listened to this on audio and the POV switches were terrible in that format because they ran together.
I do want to point out that there are a lot of dated attitudes in this series (lack of body positivity, and use of the 'r' word in casual insults are examples from this book), so this could be something some readers won't enjoy. But I grew up in the same years these characters did and the books are a product of that time period (early 2000s).
