The Heartbreakers Reviews

    The title and the synopsis of this book really gives you the wrong idea about what it's really about. On the back of this copy, it says "But staying single is sometimes harder than splitting up in the first place. Soon all four girls, especially Alexia, are doing a little heartbreaking themselves." In all honesty, this book should have been called "The HeartBROKEN" The only real heartbreakers in the story were the guys themselves (typical). The rest of the novel was filled to the brim with emo as the girls try to cope with being single... and that's it. Not my style, unfortunately... I was hoping for a nice dose of childish revenge games but got a big helping of disappointment. It's good for what it is, but it would have been nice if it weren't so misleading.

    Ξεκίνησε πολλά υποσχόμενο αλλά στην πορεία για να πώ την αλήθεια βαρέθηκα.Οι ιστορίες και των 4 κοριτσιών δεν είναι το ίδιο ενδιαφέρουσες και πολλές στιγμές ένιωθα να θέλω να προσπεράσω τη μια ιστορία για να πάω στην άλλη.Το τέλος θα έλεγα πως ήταν αναμενόμενο αν και κάπως βιαστικό.Ίσως διαβάσω και το δεύτερο αν και δεν είμαι σίγουρη ακόμη!

    Found this during my young adult database project. A WONDERFUL recommendation for young girls! I almost felt as if I was reading a self-help novel for relationships. Give to any girl (young or old) after they have had a bad breakup. Four teenagers come up with a "breakup code" to prevent themselves from getting caught up in unhealthy relationships. Nicely written and lovable characters.

    It's an extremely forgettable book two stars. It's not bad and it has a halfway descent, positive message but the story has nothing to make it stand out among the sea of teenagers' soap operas in the YA market; I have nothing more to say.

    Od zawsze unikałam typowych młodzieżówek, w których główną rolę gra wątek miłosny, ponieważ niesamowicie denerwowały mnie błahe problemy nastolatek. Sięgając po "Złamane serca", byłam niemal pewna, że zanudzę się na śmierć, ale myliłam się. Dlaczego? O tym zaraz.Kelly, Sydney, Raven i Alexia są już od kilku lat najlepszymi przyjaciółkami, jednak od czasu, gdy ich w życiu pojawili się chłopcy, a z nimi miłosne zawirowania, dziewczyny trochę się od siebie oddaliły. Jedynie Alexia jest singielką, Dziewczyny nie spotykają się już tak często, jak kiedyś, dopiero wtedy, gdy zostają jednego dnia porzucone przez swoich chłopaków, zauważają jak im siebie brakuje. Powołują do życia "Kodeks zerwań", który ma im pomóc pogodzić się z rozstaniami. Czy spełni on swoje zadanie?Bardzo szybko czytało mi się o perypetiach czterech przyjaciółek, a to zapewne za sprawą lekkiego i przystępnego stylu autorki. Język książki jest młodzieżowy, dzięki czemu dialogi sprawiają wrażenie autentycznych, nawet jeśli występuje tam kilka przekleństw, są też miejscami bardzo zabawne. Nie mniejsze znaczenie ma także dynamiczna akcja, w każdym z 32 rozdziałów coś się dzieje, dlatego też z ciekawością przewraca się kolejne strony książki. I chociaż zakończenie jest według mnie trochę zbyt cukierkowe, to cała historia i tak jest warta uwagi.Kolejną zaletą tej powieści są bohaterowie, a raczej bohaterki, bo to na nich głównie się skupię. Bardzo łatwo jest się z nimi utożsamić, ponieważ nie są wyidealizowane, mają swoje zalety, jednak wad też im nie brakuje. Każda z nich ma odmienny charakter oraz inne problemy. Alexia jest bardzo nieśmiała i nigdy nie miała chłopaka, za to Raven ma wybuchowy temperament i nie potrafi dogadać się ze swoją matką, Kelly jest zakompleksioną osobą, a przez to ma fioła na punkcie swojego wyglądu, za to Sydney, właśnie, chyba jest uzależniona od swojego byłego chłopaka. Z początku nie mogłam uwierzyć, jak dziewczyny o tak różnych charakterach mogą być najlepszymi przyjaciółkami, ale zrozumiałam, że dzięki temu mogą się uzupełniać.Powieść, mimo że mówi głównie o kłopotach sercowych, jest świetną lekturą dla każdej nastolatki, ponieważ to, czy ma ona chłopaka czy też jest singielką, nie ma tutaj znaczenia. Bardzo łatwo można przywiązać się do głównych bohaterek i przeżywać ich sukcesy lub porażki z pełnym zaangażowaniem, nawet jeśli nie do końca są do nas podobne. I co najważniejsze, powieść ta nie jest kolejną typową pozycją dla młodzieży, po której nic nam w głowie nie zostaje, bo niesie za sobą naukę, że zawsze możemy liczyć na swoje prawdziwe przyjaciółki i powinnyśmy umieć być niezależne, bez chłopaka też można żyć!"Złamane serca" to książka, która mnie pozytywnie zaskoczyła. Bardzo chętnie sięgnę po 2. część perypetii Kelly, Sydney, Alexii i Raven, a każdej niezdecydowanej, nastoletniej czytelniczce polecam sięgnięcie po tę debiutancką powieść pani Wells, ponieważ można spędzić przy niej bardzo miło czas i być może znaleźć złoty środek na kłopoty z płcią przeciwną.http://przyjaciolkiksiazki.blogspot.c...

    Sydney's boyfriend decides to break off the relationship. Kelly's boyfriend has big plans for Valentine's Day... just not with her. Raven is stuck in the middle of two guys and can not decide. Alexia has never had a serious boyfriend and wonders if she ever will.Four friends all single start to wonder if this teenage love is worth all the pain of heartbreak. Together they make a list of 25 Rules that they call the Breakup Code. These rules are to get them all through the next few months and they are to make sure that not one of them falters...Rule No 1: You must not text or IM the ex boyfriendbut rules were made to be broken...right?I think I have found a true YA book that really felt to me to be YA... a young YA. There is no paranormal activity, while partying is mentioned, it is just that...a mention. No sex, no drugs, just clean sweet relationships that reminded me of Jr High.(Yup.... we are going to have a flashback.... hang on!)I remember those first what I thought were serious relationships in that 14 - 17 year range. And I quite easily remember what it felt like when "the one" you thought was :the one"... wasn't. Seriously, do you remember that feeling? You though you were going to die from the pain of heart-break! I remember barely being able to get my head off the pillow...This is the kind of love we are talking about in Heartbreakers. The girls are still young and each break up or relationship feels overpowered with emotions. And of course you can't break girl code - your friends come first at this time in your life and if that say he's wrong for you... then he is... even if you think he is so right.I thought how each chapter started with one of the Break Up Codes was smart writing. I thin I would have liked it more if the chapters and codes were in order instead of the code skipping around that is in the book.Over all I can imagine that this would be a book more appreciated by tweens. I have heard this book be compared to the Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants and I think that is a fair comparison.**Update: Pamela has a third book in the series coming out yet in 2012!

    Tout d’abord merci à Solène et aux éditions Albin Michel pour ce roman.Si Alexia n’a jamais eu de petit ami, Sydney sort avec Drew depuis deux ans. Aussi est-elle dévastée lorsque ce dernier décide de rompre alors qu’elle ne s’y attendait pas. Quant à Raven et Kelly, la première se fait plaquer par un garçon qui n’était de toute manière pas pour elle tandis que la seconde soupire après Will, bien décidé à ne pas avoir de relation exclusive avec une fille.Si Alexia a d’abord été ma chouchoute, je me suis prise au fil des pages à m’attacher à chacune des filles, tour à tour. Elles ont chacune leur personnalité et le fait qu’on suive les unes et les autres les rend réellement très attachantes. Alexia est celle qui n’a jamais connu les affres de l’amour et, même si elle est triste et inquiète de voir ses amies avoir le cœur brisée, on sent qu’elle s’est sentie seule et qu’elle est malgré tout heureuse de retrouver leur amitié et de pouvoir les aider. Raven est la jolie fille qui a besoin d’attention et qui n’aime pas être seule. Mais, suite à cela, elle a aussi la réputation d’enchaîner les garçons. Kelly est tombée sur le garçon qui veut tout sans rien donner en retour. Et Sydney est celle dont la relation semblait acquise et qui voit son monde s’effondrer avec sa rupture.Le code de rupture qu’elles écrivent propose des règles sommes toutes assez logiques qu’il parait normal de suivre finalement. Peut-être pas facile par contre et chacune des filles va le vivre différemment. Si certaines s’y accrochent comme un sacro-saint règlement, d’autres le violent allégrement sans paraître vraiment s’en soucier avant de s’en rappeler soudainement.(...)https://tempsdemots.wordpress.com/201...

    I hadn't realized that this was a young adult version of chick-lit. It's all concerning the love-lifes of four high school gal pals. And it is so beyond cheesey. And granted that I am far from high school and can't really relate to this stuff anymore, but it seemed sooo unrelatable even to a high schooler. That whole relationship with Drew and Sydney I'm sorry but that gives young girls this idea that you can be unhealthily obsessed with one guy and it'll all turn out in the end. I'm sorry but sixteen year olds should not be giving rings to their boyfriends that cost upwards of $300 and are engraved with the words 'until the day I die' it all just gave me the heebeejeebees. It was an extremely easy read and entertaining enough, but definitely not a book for someone over 18, actually come to think about it, it really shouldn't be a book for anyone it's like it's written for an older person but only pg stuff is written (i.e. no cussing I think the closest thing to cussing was "you...you...argh" we all know she wanted to say bitch so she should a just said it and on top of that this is borderline disney-like fantasy, setting unrealistic expectations to the younger demographic. Oh yeah and one more thing, it is just so unfeasible for these four girls to be best friends, way too different and especially in a high school setting.

    NINE CHAPTERS IN: It's a little like the sisterhood of the traveling pants. There's four best friends, Sydney (my favorite), Raven (the one that's most like me. especially with the BIG passion for music), Kelly, and Alexia. All of them but Alexia experience break-ups with their boyfriends. They make up a Breakup Code in which they have to follow in order to forget their Ex. So it's a little like the sisterhood. Just a little. It's a really fun book to read though. I'm a huge fan of romance books. The best thing so far is that this books explores the hearts of three young girls who get their hearts broken by the one's they think are The One, but one thing is for sure, their best friends will always be there for them...no matter what happens...DONE WITH BOOK: Wow. THIS is the kind of book that I love. Amazing. VERY well written. Just...wow. I guess I pretty much said everything already. A MUST READ!!!!!! Seriously. I had ssooo much fun reading this book. It was HILARIOUS at some parts and REALLY SAD in others. So sad that I cried. AAMAAZING BOOK! I LOVED IT, 100%!!!!

    Finishing this book was like forcing myself to sleep on a bed of nails and drink acid at the same time.No lie.I was simultaneously choking on laughter and bile while reading this- and not the good kind of laughter, mind you. The kind of laughter that displays my utter disbelief that this book (if you can even call it that) was published in the first place.It consisted of four girls with absolutely ordinary lives who get absolutely ordinarily screwed over by guys, and whine and whine and whine like they're so special and really can't believe they had it SOOOOO hard.I can't even give a decent review of this book, because just thinking about it makes me angry. Seriously. It is a perfect example of what is happening to writing nowadays- the plot predictable and practically nonexistent, the characters typical and uninteresting, and the relationships cliched and cheesy. However, I may be to blame. Why would I ever pick up a book with a cover like that? WHY?

    In this book there are 4 friends, 3 breakups, and 29 rules for their breakups. When Alexia found out that all her friends got dumped she decided to make up 29 rules on how to get over the boys. Can all the girls follow the rules or will they cheat?In this book there is a text to self because my friends have gone through some tough breakups same as the girls in this book. I helped my friends and they usually get over the person. I am god. No but I can relate to the book mostly cause I know what it feels like for the girls who are all friends. Nobody wants to see their friends sad and boring, so they help.I would give this book 5 stars because I thought that it had so much life and when I read the 2 on I knew that the first one must be as good. So yes I did read book 2 then book 1. But sometimes that is the way.

    first and foremost, the title.The heartbreakers i honestly think this book shouldve been titled, the breakup code, because nobody does any heart breaking unless youre talking about Drew, Will, and Caleb but youd assume the heartbreakers would be Sydney, Alexia, Kelly, and Raven, but theyre the ones getting heart broken. other than that, i thought the story was pretty good! towards the middle of the book i was thinking that the break up code was useless but after Alexias mum explained it, it all made sense. i really liked all the characters in this book, especially Ben, even though we didnt get much of him. hopefully in the second book we get more of him!!

    This is a pretty straightforward teen novel, with all the tasty pop-culture references that stand in for authenticity, and all the cliches you'd expect given the premise: four girls write a "breakup code" to help them deal with their recently-ended relationships. You can skip everything except the code itself, which is like a diamond in the rough: all the points written in the code, which is really a code of behaviour, are actually solid advice (Do not contact the Ex, do not contact the Ex's parents, do not ask after the Ex, if you see one of your girls' Exes, do not mention it to her, etc.) Strangely solid tips despite the fluffy wrapping.

    "Heartbreakers" is now one of my favorite books. It's a little similar to "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" expect it has a lot of love in it. It reminds me of the friendship I have with my friends. It taught me to always be there for my firnds when they are in trouble, have a problem, or going thruough something. You may have boyfriends and girlfriends, but you will always have your freinds when you need them or don't have that special someone. TThis book is funny and sad, but anyone would love this book. It was recommend to me, and now I am recommeding it to you!

But when three of them get dumped by their boyfriends, on the same night, they all band together to get over their past relationships. One night, the friends decide to create a list of rules to follow, to avoid their past mistakes. But will these rules help them get over heartache, or will it just make life even harder? This is definitely a fun, 5-star read!

    Four best friends strive to find their selves again. Three of them use the Breakup Code to forget about their exes, while their Alexia(the single best friend) tries helping them cope with the breakups.This is a really cool book. I enjoyed reading this book with four different perspectives of losing someone you love/like. At first, this book was a bit boring, but later on I started loving every moment of the book and had a hard time putting it down. I recommend this book if you're a person that enjoys reading some romance.

    Read this book like 8 yrs ago. Don't remember much of what happens but I definitely remember a group of friends having breakup issues and stuffs that teenagers go through and so they come up with few rules regarding dating, or staying single I should say, and so they wear these rubber bands on their wrists and snap them against their skin whenever they violate the rules. It was an okay read when I was of that age.

    I thought this was the coolest book when I read it like, freshman year of high school. I'm in college now, so I may as well give it the honest review it would have when I first read it, because looking back over it, it's not the greatest but it gives me a lot of memories about how I used to rave about this book (and thinking about how my high school years would unfold). I thought it would prep me for real life and all the high school struggles, ha.

Can all the girls follow the rules or will they cheat? This book is really good. It can connect to us girls as teenagers now a days. The girls have problems with their boyfriends but then they soemtimes end up being together.

    While reading this book I related to the theme of friendship. In this book, four best friends all push each other through their traumatizing breakups. They help each other get the through the vulnerable moments after getting dumped or rejected. They make rules in order to move on and meet new people. Throughout the book, they learn that together they are capable of accomplishing anything they set their minds to.

    This is an excellent book about best friends and high school romances. This book dives into the importance of not losing who you are just because you are in a relationship. After three tough breakups, best friends create a break up code and begin following it's rules to get back to themselves, without having a guy!

    This book is mainly for girls. Unless boys like to know what goes on with girls. Heartbreakers is about 4 friends. Three just got their hearts broke, and they came up with rules to get over their tragic break ups. Alexia, on the other hand, is falling or a guy, which has never happened before. I recommend this for girls the ages of 10 to 17

    Overall the book was great. I like the rules the characters were given. I read this book when I broke with my boyfriend. so it helped me. I am not a fan of different perspectives, but if it's entertaining and not confusing i will read it. I have not read book 2, since I'm over this book but i recommend it to those people who want to have a laugh.

    Awful. It's one of those books where it just talks about various people's lives. People's lives are not great to write about unless their lives are exciting. Break ups may be the most boring thing EVER!!! I liked Alexia though. she was freakily like me. And she didn't break up with anyone so her life was actually exciting! I don't know what's up with me lately, but I've been reading crap books.

    This book was a page turner. It was about four best friends that got heartbroken, at least three of them. Once issues aroused, could they overcome them? That’s when their friend Raven came up with the “Rules.” It is a good book to learn a lesson from especially if people are going through teen love problems.

    What about «I don't need a man to make me happy/feel good/feel complete» (The Pussycat Dolls anthem lol)? Those girls seemed to rely too much on guys to make them happy. I didn't like that. Plus, I was bored reading this. There was nothing exciting happening; only complaints and bad decisions. Don't waste your time and choose another book.
