The Other's Gold

Assigned to the same suite during their freshman year at uincy Hawthorne College Lainey Ji Sun Alice and Margaret uickly become inseparable But they soon find their bonds forged in joy and fused by fear must weather threats that come at them from insti I m finding it difficult to figure out what I want to say in this review because I thought this was just an okay read I think if I would have connected with the four main characters this could have been a meaningful read like it was for other readers I just feel like whatever points the author was trying to get across just flew right over my head or something Lainey Ji Sun Alice and Margaret are all assigned to the same suite during their freshman year in college They become fast friends and the story will follow them thru their school years as well as what life has in store for them after college The book includes four parts with each part dealing with a mistake made by one of the women The titles of the mistakes are the Accident the Accusation the Kiss and the Bite I ll give the author credit even though I knew the titles ahead of time I still was caught off guard with the direction the last two parts went in Even though I didn t really enjoy much of what happened in the second half of the book I guess I can award points for creativity My main issue with the book is the four women actually felt like a cliue in the sense that I felt like an outsider and therefore never truly understood them completely I ve read many other books about friendships and this is one of the few times I actually uestioned why the characters were friends with one another I just didn t 100% buy it and I guess that s why the story as a whole didn t really work for me There s nothing I hated about the book but there also isn t anything I really loved either So I guess this goes in the okay but nothing special category I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway but was under no obligation to post a review All views expressed are my honest opinion

Ccident the Accusation the Kiss and the Bite this complex yet compulsively readable debut interrogates the way that growing up forces our friendships to evolve as the women discover what they and their loved ones are capable of and capable of forgiving The Other s Gold examines the relationships between 4 young women as they enter adulthood at a small private Northeastern college and develop their personalities and their identities Though they are dissimilar in background heritage and goals they are determined to have each other s back no matter what This promise is tested time and again as they pursue their dreams and romantic relationships and become parents This story had a lot of strengths for a debut novelMs Ames is a talented author Her words are carefully chosen Her dialogue is interesting and the storyline was smooth especially as the four characters transition throughout the book each woman sharing her perceptions motivations and actions As the blurb states that each has a secret to hide the others must decide if they can stifle her negative reaction to support her friend as she works through her trauma None are perfect and each shows her weakest moment with her sisters This exposure leads to legal and ethical challenges and the others responsibility in support of immoral behaviors These challenges cause each to evaluate what her obligation is the others This story held my interest throughout Unfortunately I didn t connect with any of the characters They were all pretty narcissistic particularly Lainey and Ji Sun Thus the author wanted to expose to us our own narcissistic behaviors This is portrayed with insightful authenticity It is particularly accurate for Millennials as this story starts around 2002 or so My own observations among my peer group 20 years prior was fueled by extreme levels of jealousy I personally avoided these struggles with my peers and see this challenge fought valiantly by these women That said I still found them really annoying selfish and off putting I am not sure if I would have compromised my ethics to support what some actual had done I do not think I would remained silent especially in regard to Margaret s actions which deeply disturbed me view spoilerat age 27 she is caught kissing a 13 year old boy residing as a guest hide spoiler
