Triangles: A Novel Paperback – June 26, 2012
Enhance your purchase
Holly, filled with regret for being a stay-at-home mom, sheds sixty pounds and loses herself in the world of extramarital sex. But will it truly bring the fulfillment she is searching for?
Andrea, a single mom and avowed celibate, watches her friend Holly’s meltdown with a mixture of concern and contempt. Holly is throwing away what Andrea has spent her whole life searching for—a committed relationship with a decent guy. So would it be such a bad thing if Andrea picks up Holly’s castaway husband?
Marissa has more than her fair share of challenges—a rebellious teenage son, a terminally ill daughter, and a husband who buries himself in his work rather than face the facts.
As one woman’s marriage unravels, another’s rekindles. As one woman’s family comes apart at the seams, another’s reconfigures into something bigger and better. In this story of connections and disconnections, one woman’s up is another one’s down, and all of them will learn the meaning of friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness.
Unflinchingly honest, emotionally powerful, surprisingly erotic, Triangles is the ultimate page-turner. Hopkins’s gorgeous, expertly honed poetic verse perfectly captures the inner lives of her characters: Sometimes it happens like that. Sometimes you just get lost.
Get lost in the world of Triangles, where the lives of three unforgettable women intersect, and where there are no easy answers.

Marissa's story broke my heart but I think it was beautifully written and it touched me on many levels. I couldn't imagine going through what her family had to and I realize so many families out there do, which is just so devastating. It's a real eye opener and I hope more people will read this book if simply for that reason.
I feel for Andrea, she is a very strong woman who continues to get dealt a bad hand. However throughout it all she knows her daughter is all that matters, even when she stumbles into some really bad habits involving a friend's husband.
Holly however is a bit of a wild child still and if I want to be completely honest there was a few times I wanted to smack her but her story was still very entertaining and sometimes bordered on being raunchy.
Overall this book was brilliant; the writing took some amazing talent and I was addicted to it. I finished it in two days. I literally couldn't put down. Ellen Hopkins has done it again, if you haven't read any of her books, you don't know what you are missing. These will one day be considered classics as far as I am concerned. So if you haven't read her work, do it now, trust me you won't be disappointed.
`Triangles' was an amazing novel and I would recommend it to everyone.
i really enjoyed this book. a lot of the reviews seemed negative about the few explicit sex scenes or just that character in general but i felt that all three characters were great portrayals of the real frustrations that people have in life and yes some of the seemingly inappropriate ways that some people deal with that. it was just such a real and visceral feeling book and i just love the way that hopkins makes the verse style of writing really work. after one YA and then this book by her i'm definitely going to go back and read more. her writing just amazes me, especially the way she can make the characters come alive each in their own unique ways and again the verse style just adds to that. i definitely consider myself a fan now. and even though obviously most of the subjects written about can be hard to read you're just so drawn in that you have to keep reading even if you feel uncomfortable. just an amazing author!!

Although I'm in my 20s and really enjoyed the book, I would especially recommend it to married woman, especially those who might be having some trouble with your relationship. The book really makes you realize you could have it worse!
