Friendaholic is a perfect example of the right book at the right time, I read this 2 weeks before leaving all of my friends and moving to another country and as such found great solace in the reading experience. And this is why, for me, the book has been so cathartic, and has delivered repeated punch-in-the-guts moments. Amidst birthday joy, thesis submission anxiety, and bittersweet farewells, this book was placed in my hands by my beloved friends. Elizabeth approaches everything she does with such thoughtfulness - I love her podcast and other books - and this is no exception.

From the journalist and author of How to Fail comes a disarmingly honest and perceptive investigation into the nature of friendship, prompted by Day's lockdown reassessment of her need for a large group of companions. A generous, companionable guide to a part of life every bit as crucial – and as fraught – as romance or family. She briefly pokes fun at the bromance, and goes on to say that the decrease in military participation has robbed men of the ability to have close physical relationships with other men. I’ve thought lots while reading this about my friends, and about how I act as a friend, and came out of this reading experience feeling I better understood what friendship means in my life, how to be a better friend, and with more conscious gratitude for my friends than I have had in some time. This allowed me to rethink certain actions that I wasn't ready to fully explore before, gave me the courage to take action on matters I have been postponing within certain friendships, and to embrace certain truths I wasn't able to accept before.Op sommige delen interessant maar het bleek gewoon echt meer een boek te zijn over haar vriendschappen in plaats van vriendschappen in het algemeen, ik mis toch gewoon de wetenschap een beetje (ook al probeert ze die erbij te halen maar vaak veel te kort).

This examination on friendship; as a phenomenon, as a life force, as a thing that shapes our lives and our selves, truly captured my attention and my imagination. As such, everything is couched in the author's own experience and most topics are presented as the author trying to sort out a problem in her life. Acabei por ler em português por estar incluído no Kobo Plus (e com a mesma capa linda, OBRIGADA PORTUGAL! Sinto que está uma boa tradução, mas acho que teria apreciado mais a leitura no seu original, uma vez que a autora é britânica e é muito difícil fazer transparecer esse tipo de humor na nossa língua.Her third, Paradise City was named one of the best novels of 2015 in the Observer and the Evening Standard, and was People magazine's Book of the Week. I'd love to read a considered, thoughtful book on friendship by an author who really has something to say.

I can sense that she will be routinely criticised for being a wealthy white women trying to explore her friendships in a first world country where she wants for very little. I love delving into the discussion of any sort of relationships, so this definitely ticked that box! I turn to psychologist and professor Paul Wright to sum up the main difference between male and female friendships. Relationships/friendships are so complex and it is reassuring to read something, in an easy way, that means your experiences aren’t that unusual after all!This book definitely made me think a lot about the people in my life - the past and current friends that I’ve had and the roles they’ve played. I can’t think of a better guide to opening up the discussion of all those relationships that, after all, massively outnumber our romantic and, for most of us, family connections. I really want to say that reading Elizabeth Day feels like listening to a friend, but it's complicated by the fact that I’m an actual friend who makes an appearance in this book on friendship. This is a very personal and relatable account of cultivating and maintaining friendships throughout challenging times and phases of life - not always a smooth or rewarding process, which will resonate with many readers, as with myself.
