What I’m Reading

A Simple Favour by Darcey Bell

Look, I’m a firm believer of reading books before watching their cinematic counterparts, but something tells me that I should’ve skipped this read by Darcey Bell and went right for something that was more visually appealing, in the forms of Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.

To say A Simple Favour was a bit of a dumpster fire is nearly an understatement. Not a single character was likeable; Stephanie was dumber than a bag of hammers, Emily is manipulative beyond comprehension, and Sean … well I couldn’t remember his name until I Googled it.

I wanted to hurl every time Stephanie mentioned her blog. (I’m well aware of the irony.) And I hope Emily will be able to afford the best therapist she can for Nicky in the future.

A Simple Favour is simply full of so many “What the F–?” moments that I don’t even know if I want to watch the movie anymore. I hope Kendrick and Lively were forced by some production company contract to make it, because I can’t imagine either of them voluntarily signing up for these rolls.

My rating: ★/5 stars
