Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 17 August 2009
Friendships can vary as much as the people who are friends. Friends don't always grow up with you. When they don't, though, sometimes you get the chance to catch up with each other. "When Good Friends Go Bad" explores this with four fast friends who grew apart. They get together for old times' sake after decades without much contact and discover that their grown-up selves aren't that different from their younger versions, especially when they realize they still need each other's help.

I enjoyed reading this book because it rings true: life and other people can push friends apart and can also push them back together. Jobs, lovers, children, health, travel -- all these things happen. Swearing friendship forever (especially during those intense teenage years) is something everyone will have heard of or known, as is losing touch. Deciding where you take your friendships forms part of growing up, and getting to know friends as they -- and you -- change can be part of being friends. This novel suggests that friendships aren't fixed; you and your friends keep growing and changing. Life has a way of throwing people back your way even when you think you've lost them.
