Beaches AUTHOR Iris Rainer DartA true testimony of friendship between two women who met as children They were faced with much adversity some of which was brought on by themselves Their love for each other is stronger than any curve balls life has to throw at them I read this before the movie was released I have always found books to be better than movies but I loved both If you plan to read this book get a box of leenx I really enjoyed this book The relationship between the two women was real it wasn t pretty simple or common It was deep complicated and that made the book even better There were parts which I felt extreme disappointment but not because the book was bad or so so but because I wanted for both women This book really ept going and made me feel a lot for the characters which I haven t had in awhile loved it as much as i love the film beautiful story about a beautiful friendship and what you d do for the friend you love most that has become your family Beaches was one of my all time favorite movies as a teenager so when I saw this book I felt certain that it would be a great read Boy was "I wrong This is one of those rare books that it not only not as "wrong This is one of those rare books that it not only not as as the movie but it was much much worse I am actually not even sure how they made such a great film from such a pathetic read The characters were not very likable at the beginning and by the end I was glad to see one of them die just so it would end The main CHARACTER CEE CEE IS JUST PLAIN Cee Cee is just plain but she somehow becomes the hero of the story Her best friend Bertie is whiney and pathetic and I found myself often wanting to slap her The best thing you can do with this book is take it to a beach and leave it there I enjoyed reading this book Beaches is one of my favorite movies of all time and while the book did not have as much of an emotional punch as I remember the movie having I m glad I read it This is one of my favorite books Ever For those who have not read or watched the movie the book is set between 1951 and 1983 It follows a relationship between two very different girls Cee Cee Bloom a loud mouthpotty mouthed red head who meets the acuaintance of a girl who is different in every way Bertie She comes from a rich family speaks properly with wonderful manners and very smartThey met under a boardwalk on a beach in Atlantic City after Bertie lost her mother and Aunt Cee Cee adapts her for a short while and brings her along to an audition for a play As Cee Cee starts to sing Bernie is wowed as she never has heard anyone sing that good After that they swap information and promise to write to one another They then start to send letters which leads into their adulthoodAs maybe guessed they do meet each other again later in life in a bar in New York where Cee Cee adopts her againThe book follows their life during relationships marriagebreakups sex love death and carers but mostly friendship and the importance of friendshipsI think both chara. Loudmouthed redheaded Cee Cee Bloom has her sights set on Hollywood Bertie White uiet and conservative dreams of getting married and having children In 1951 their childhood worlds collide in Atlant. Cters balance each other out "In The Best Way They "the best way they off each other so Bertie throughout the book especially towards the end I would recommend this book to everyone I think there is something real to this book which everyone can relate a part of their life to no matter what ageAlso a lot of people seem to hate Cee Cee s character for being nasty and potty mouthed However I inda love that I think the selfishness which she processes is very real and it is just who she is but she is also hard working loving and very broken this is where they both balance each other out For now this continues to be my favorite book and if you have not watch the movie I would personally say watch the movie first as it provided an even better vision when reading Having seen the movie Beaches times than I can count I was looking forward to the book I am therefore sorry to say that I didn t like it that much The basic story stays the same Cee Cee Bloom and Bertie White Hillary in the movie form an unlikely friendship when they are 10 and 7 years old respectively Through many years and personal hardships they remain friends until a tragic illness brings them togetherWhat didn t I like about this book Cee Cee Bloom is not a very nice person in this book and I found it hard to really care for her In the movie Bette Midler gives her a clear vulnerability that wasn t apparent in the book It also seemed to me that the author had Bette specifically in mind while writing the story as if it were already a screenplay in her head The character of Bertie was whiny and sad I wanted than once to say Come on woman get on with your life but it never seemed to happen The clich d fate of one of the male characters was ind of been there done that and I expected from the authorNevertheless because of fond movie memories the book scored extra points that s why it gets a high 3 Beaches is probably my all time favorite friendship movie I was so looking forward to reading this book to learn about the characters but it was not good I did not like the Bertie character at all Way too week and the Cee Cee character was too filthy mouth This book was about sex and such strong language so than the friendship that was the basis of the movie Contains adult language and contentbook I read from actually has a different bookcover image but I couldn t find it original 85 hardcover edition and honestly I like this #Paperback Cover Better 1951 They Meet As Children Under The # cover better 1951 They meet as children under the in Atlantic City Cee Cee Bloom with a Brillo pad of red hair a nock out voice and a sparkle that demands attention is performing in a Therapy of Love kiddie show Bertie White is from a conventional family with traditional values but she finds herself captivated by the glitter of Cee Cee s world And Cee Cee in turn depends on Bertie s enthusiastic support and open hearted affection From that first special day on the beach they enliven each other s existence As pen pal.
