A Simple Favor COMPLETE Kiss Scene HD (Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively) Emily and Stephanie

A Simple Favor Video

The Predator

Stephanie finally calls Emily's husband, Sean, who was in London to tell him his wife has disappeared and that she has been keeping Nicky. Sean doesn't seem concerned since Emily said she was going on a business trip, but the problem is that Emily never returns from the business trip.

Sean, Stephanie, and the two boys spend a lot of time with each other until they find out the truth that Emily is dead. The characters were authentic, but it was difficult to believe someone could act that way and think of ways to hurt others.

I had my doubts about Stephanie's sanity and motives and about the life she lead. Stephanie was quite gullible and insecure. Emily was a difficult one to figure out, a character I didn't like, and a character I grew to hate.

She was conniving and evil. Sean seemed like a nice enough guy that was caught in the middle of everything.

The story line became quite intense and very good as the book continued. The wrap up is amazing. A brilliant debut. View all 4 comments.

May 02, Amanda McGill rated it did not like it Shelves: I'm surprised by my 1 star rating, but reflecting upon the plot this morning, I realized that I didn't like the book at all.

It was filled with unlikable characters and the plot was pretty weak if you remove all the fluff surrounding it.

Stephanie and Emily are best friends. Emily asked Stephanie one day to pick up her son after school, but then Stephanie doesn't hear anything else from Emily.

A search is underway, but Emily is found to be dead. What could of made Emily go missing?

Does Stephani I'm surprised by my 1 star rating, but reflecting upon the plot this morning, I realized that I didn't like the book at all.

Does Stephanie truly know her best friend? So you have Stephanie, Emily and Emily's husband Sean and boy do they all suck.

They all have their secrets, but their secrets don't even make them interesting. They were all flat and did pretty dumb things.

I also hated Stephanie's mommy blog that was roughly half of the novel. I didn't like the format and found it odd that people actually read it.

Sadly not the novel for me. I was however impressed that it was a debut novel. Aug 10, Alli rated it did not like it Shelves: , hated-it.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I picked this up because the movie looks SO good, but the only explanation is that they have completely changed and re-edited the story.

This whole thing is full of huge spoilers from this point forward Emily disappears and Super Mom Stephanie melts down.

Her best friend is missing! She reaches out via her blog for help. She low keys shades and shames other moms for not be the Super Mom she is.

She is truly a ridiculous person. And then continued to have that affair after she was married. And then got pregnant and had his child. And then she covered it up so she could collect insurance money so she could be a stay at home super mommy.

She has no identity outside her child. And Stephanie judges them for it. Emily disappears in a Gone Girl haze.

And when the body turns up? Spineless Sean who is scared of his wife and enables the toxicity of their marriage. You can tell what kind of person Sean is early on when a few weeks into his disappearance he starts fucking her best friend.

But what really drives it home is the fact that his wife steals his mothers ring, her favorite thing and when he finds out he just rolls over.

It was hard to know who I hated the most. Was it Spineless Sean who was afraid of his wife and just gave in to whatever she wanted and abandoned his son to be with his crazy wife?

Was it mindless, opinionless, sanctimonious, brother fucking Stephanie? The book ends with Emily basically framing Stephanie for a murder she committed and talked Stephanie into helping her cover up.

She literally had just gotten her job back, a huge raise and literally ran her husband out of the country but she picks up and hightailed it a month later.

They kept all the plot points with the incest and the secret twin and insurance scam and all that but it changes the ending into something SO much better.

View all 9 comments. This is the scenario debut novelist Darcey Bell explores in her pulse pounding psychological suspense novel, A Simple Favour.

A Simple Favour is a dark and twisted psychological suspense tale. This one reeled me in from the very start and it did not release its strong hold over me until the final page was turned.

A Simple Favour was a careful read for me, one I had no compulsion to skim as every word seemed vital in solving this puzzling mystery. It is a solid effort for a debut novelist and it does not surprise me that film rights have already been purchased for this slick and compulsive novel.

The presence of the blog entries is quite strong in this book, it kick starts the early stages of the narrative and appears in other chunks throughout the progression of the novel.

It was a good way to set the scene. As a mum and blogger I could relate. As the book travels along, we learn each of these characters has a background and history they would rather stayed hidden.

Stephanie in particular has quite the sordid background. I grappled with the fact that a person could keep a whole part of their life so hidden from a spouse and best friend.

I did guess one of the plot twists involving Emily and her background. Darcey Bell has devised a first time novel that is full of twists, uncertainty and darkness.

It is a little difficult to discuss much more of this novel as I do not wish to spoil the enjoyment of A Simple Favour for prospective readers.

I will say the narrative content, the characterisation and the writing style of A Simple Favour worked for me. I liked how the book questioned who we can trust and our intimate relationships.

A Simple Favour presents a realistic scenario, full of possibilities. All in all I enjoyed A Simple Favour. It is a jarring psychological suspense novel that has cemented debut novelist Darcey Bell on my list of authors to watch!

I really need to not read books that are described as good for fans of Gone Girl, since I was not a fan of Gone Girl. A nasty woman disappears after asking her weak-willed "best friend" to take care of her child after school.

A body is later found, the nasty woman is declared and thought by all to be dead, but then the friend starts to have her suspicions.

I was so annoyed with Stephanie- the way she talked about moms and to moms like if you are a mother you are a different species. Her blog was I really need to not read books that are described as good for fans of Gone Girl, since I was not a fan of Gone Girl.

Her blog was ridiculous. She was ridiculous. I hated that she has the same name as me. Emily was also awful, of course, but because of the comparisons to GG, you knew that there had to be an awful, manipulative woman in there somewhere.

Just like GG, I hated the ending. I finished it because I kept hoping that the "fish" would somehow out-manipulate the manipulator, even though I didn't like her.

This is by far one of the worst books I've read. The characters are horrible - either evil and vile or such ridiculous doormats, I want to slam their faces into something.

I read the book because I saw the trailer for the movie, and I can say, with conviction, I will never watch the movie. I don't want to waste any more time elaborating on this steaming pile of horseshit.

Thriller A Thon: A recommended read This book is bad. But its bad in a fun way. A Simple Favor reminded me of a Lifetime movie or possibly a daytime soap opera.

It was cheesy, melodramatic and over the top. So I did. Every character in this book is unlikable and Imma just say it They crazy as hell.

This book isn't funny but I laughed so many times. Each plot twist was crazier than the last one. And the ending was truly nonsensical but I'm not mad about it.

I'm not gonna recommend A Simple Favor because this book was not good. But for those of you like me who like to read bad books for fun, A Simple Favor might be worth your time.

Sep 09, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: mystery , psychological-thriller , book-to-screen , read , listened-to-audiobook , stand-alone-novel.

I almost DNF'd because I viewed it as offensive to reader how obvious it was. But then "Here's to moms and good friends. But then readers are redirected from the massive detour and the real psychological thriller begins.

The point being? I am saying the writing was most likely motivated by this statement. It attempts at brow-raising, jaw-dropping, and WTF's which worked for me on one occasion: view spoiler [letting her twin sister follow through with suicide did get to me I have to admit hide spoiler ].

It wasn't a complete success but it certainly gives the book world another disturbed female character strong enough to carry an adaptation to film, which I look forward to watching.

Overall, a readable psychological thriller that will require patience for some but may pay off for others. I did really enjoy the "mom blog" and all the very empathetic statements about stay-at-home moms.

I made the decision to read this based on my love for comparing books to movies, but I'll leave it up to you whether you want to check it out or not.

My favorite quote: "Treasure every moment you are lucky enough to spend with your loved ones because we never know what will happen just a few heartbeats later.

View all 3 comments. I felt that once you know all the surprises in this mystery thriller it would impact the reading experience, so quickly ordered a copy of the book first.

The story opens with Stephanie a blogger who is asked by her friend Emily the simple favour of picking her son up from school. Having not heard from her for days Stephanie starts to panic and uses her blog to help find her missing friend.

It might be because I know that Stephanie is being played by Kendrick, but I really liked her character. Telling the story initially through her blog and thoughts was a great way to draw the reader in.

I liked how her online persona was completely different. The second half of the book produces some shock twists, it has to be said that they started to get more unbelievable as the story unravels.

I was glad that all the elements tied up in the end though. I actually really enjoyed this. Wanted to watch the movie but of course, first read the book.

And what a surprise, the book was better. Much better. Like they changed the story so much that I hated the movie.

I liked the blog aspect of the book, thought it was a different way of telling the story. I figured out the "big reveal" before but it didn't prevent me from enjoying the book.

The characters are awful human beings however, you can't always have angels in every book. I couldn't put this book down, loving the way Darcy Bell wrote the characters.

When reading, I had a different voice for each character and was impressed by that. This is not a love story.

It's disturbing and raw. And, since I enjoyed a disturbing and raw book I wonder what that says about me Dec 21, Darinda rated it liked it Shelves: thriller-psychological.

Emily asks a favor of Stephanie - to watch her son one afternoon and she'll pick him up that evening Stephanie is a widow and mommy blogger with a young son.

Emily is a working mom with a young son. They don't seem to have much in common, other than their sons are friends, but soon they also become friends.

They also both have secrets in their past that they don't want to get out. Told with alternating points of view - Stephanie, Stephanie and Emily are best friends.

Told with alternating points of view - Stephanie, Emily, and Sean. Plus, some of the story is told using posts from Stephanie's blog.

Stephanie is naive, creepy, and fake. Emily is arty, manipulative, and awful. Sean is Emily's dopey husband.

A twisted psychological thriller. I enjoyed the writing style, but the story itself was not that great. Stephanie and Emily are both unlikable, and not in a "they're morally corrupt, but interesting" way.

Even with unlikable characters, I want to root for someone, and this book didn't have that. There were some interesting happenings and twists.

It's just unfortunate that I never connected with any characters. Jun 18, Nat rated it did not like it Shelves: incomplete.

I wouldn't recommend this book to a flea, if a flea could read. I hated the blog chapters. They came across as phony and like Stephanie was talking to herself instead of her supposedly loyal followers, and if she had said moms one more time The other chapters featuring Stephanie were a little better but not much.

I thought a lot of the material was tacky and not something I wanted to continue reading. Wow, what a difference turning the movie into a comedy of sorts made.

After seeing it, I think I might be willing to watch Henry Golding just standing in a corner waving. That man is beautiful!

I usually go more for your tall blond types, and here and there your tall dark-haired-white-guy types, but Henry has blown all of my usual beliefs out the window.

Side note: The above update really has nothing to do with the book, I just wanted to talk about how lovely Henry Golding is.

This was honestly as terrible as the overall rating and reviews make it out to be. The characters are horrendous, whiny, and annoying.

The writing it appalling. The only reason I'm giving this an added star is because legit I couldn't stop reading, until I realized I wanted to be reading anything else instead.

Still gonna watch the movie though because Blake Lively is bae and also it This was honestly as terrible as the overall rating and reviews make it out to be.

Still gonna watch the movie though because Blake Lively is bae and also it seems good enough to make me forget about this nonsense book. Apr 25, Frank Phillips rated it liked it.

I would say this book is closer to four stars even though I rated it three stars. Probably 3. The only reason I did not give it a complete four stars is simply because the entire book I was so incredibly annoyed by one of the main characters, Stephanie, I absolutely hated her she had no redeeming qualities whatsoever in my opinion.

Maybe that is a sign of excellent writing?! This book had a few triggers for those that are sensitive. I was not surprised by the ending at a I would say this book is closer to four stars even though I rated it three stars.

I was not surprised by the ending at all andFelt like one of the main reveals was revealed way too early on, about three-fourths of the way through the book.

If this book had one character that I could empathize with and love it would've been much better for me however there just was not that one person that I actually liked.

I am definitely going to recommend this book and also keep my eye open for others by this author. Aug 18, Nikki Saturday Nite Reader rated it did not like it Shelves: read , suspense-thriller.

Stephanie, a widowed stay-at-home mommy blogger, is in need of a friend. The polar opposites become fast friends and then Emily disappears.

When the police are finally involved the story will unfold chapter by chapter: mess after mess. Is Emily missing? Did she run away?

Is she dead? What the heck is going on? Her narrative is super annoying and they made me cringe. I realize that his her character so it did a good job of making me dislike her so.

But every time Stephanie went 'Hi moms' on her stupid blog I wanted to kill her. God, she deserved to be the "fish". Her affair with her half brother, their kid, her constant ramblings about how she missed her husband whom she cheated on for the better part of their marriage, her 'captain mom' avatar, everything was so maddening.

Most of all, h When I watched the trailer of this movie with a redhead Blake Lively, all shrouded in mystery and intrigue, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book.

Most of all, her blind faith in Emily. It was like she wanted to be taken for a ride! Honestly, I've never seen a dumber character. Emily was the kind of girl our parents warn us to beware of.

She was a bloody genius if you ask me. Sean was the only person I felt bad for. Poor guy should have known better than to marry a girl who wanted to watch Peeping Tom on their third date.

I'm pretty sure I'd never recommend this book to anyone looking for a good time. But, if you have nothing but time on your hands and want to read about twisted schemes played on gullible morons, go right ahead!

Reminded me of Gone Girl, and I hated that book. Okay before I go into this review, I just wanted to say that when I saw the movie trailer for this I honestly wanted to read the book.

I mean my love for Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick definitely intrigued me to dive into this before I go see the movie. However, after reading this..

I'll probably save my money and wait for it to come out on TV. Or Amazon. A Simple Favor had an interesting concept.. I honestly zo Reminded me of Gone Girl, and I hated that book.

I honestly zoned out so many times and was trying to predict the ending 10 minutes into the book. I totally predicted a ton of shit correctly beforehand so I was very pleased with myself.

I don't even want to dive into the characters because they were so bland. I didn't like any of them well maybe the kids but that's about it.

Each person in this book was so weird, like beyond fucked up kind of weird. I didn't care about the betrayal, twists, turns, or the romance affairs.

Of course everyone has baggage and a past.. Overall, I just didn't like it. I'm glad that I didn't buy the book and got a free audio from my library.

This is by far one of the worst books I've read. The characters are horrible - either evil and vile or such ridiculous doormats, I want to slam their faces into something.

I read the book because I saw the trailer for the movie, and I can say, with conviction, I will never watch the movie.

I don't want to waste any more time elaborating on this steaming pile of horseshit. Thriller A Thon: A recommended read This book is bad.

But its bad in a fun way. A Simple Favor reminded me of a Lifetime movie or possibly a daytime soap opera.

It was cheesy, melodramatic and over the top. So I did. Every character in this book is unlikable and Imma just say it They crazy as hell.

This book isn't funny but I laughed so many times. Each plot twist was crazier than the last one. And the ending was truly nonsensical but I'm not mad about it.

I'm not gonna recommend A Simple Favor because this book was not good. But for those of you like me who like to read bad books for fun, A Simple Favor might be worth your time.

I almost DNF'd because I viewed it as offensive to reader how obvious it was. But then "Here's to moms and good friends. But then readers are redirected from the massive detour and the real psychological thriller begins.

The point being? I am saying the writing was most likely motivated by this statement. It attempts at brow-raising, jaw-dropping, and WTF's which worked for me on one occasion: view spoiler [letting her twin sister follow through with suicide did get to me I have to admit hide spoiler ].

It wasn't a complete success but it certainly gives the book world another disturbed female character strong enough to carry an adaptation to film, which I look forward to watching.

Overall, a readable psychological thriller that will require patience for some but may pay off for others. I did really enjoy the "mom blog" and all the very empathetic statements about stay-at-home moms.

I made the decision to read this based on my love for comparing books to movies, but I'll leave it up to you whether you want to check it out or not.

View all 3 comments. I felt that once you know all the surprises in this mystery thriller it would impact the reading experience, so quickly ordered a copy of the book first.

The story opens with Stephanie a blogger who is asked by her friend Emily the simple favour of picking her son up from school.

Having not heard from her for days Stephanie starts to panic and uses her blog to help find her missing friend. It might be because I know that Stephanie is being played by Kendrick, but I really liked her character.

Telling the story initially through her blog and thoughts was a great way to draw the reader in. I liked how her online persona was completely different.

The second half of the book produces some shock twists, it has to be said that they started to get more unbelievable as the story unravels.

I was glad that all the elements tied up in the end though. I actually really enjoyed this. Wanted to watch the movie but of course, first read the book.

And what a surprise, the book was better. Much better. Like they changed the story so much that I hated the movie. I liked the blog aspect of the book, thought it was a different way of telling the story.

I figured out the "big reveal" before but it didn't prevent me from enjoying the book. The characters are awful human beings however, you can't always have angels in every book.

I couldn't put this book down, loving the way Darcy Bell wrote the characters. When reading, I had a different voice for each character and was impressed by that.

This is not a love story. It's disturbing and raw. And, since I enjoyed a disturbing and raw book I wonder what that says about me Dec 21, Darinda rated it liked it Shelves: thriller-psychological.

Emily asks a favor of Stephanie - to watch her son one afternoon and she'll pick him up that evening Stephanie is a widow and mommy blogger with a young son.

Emily is a working mom with a young son. They don't seem to have much in common, other than their sons are friends, but soon they also become friends.

They also both have secrets in their past that they don't want to get out. Told with alternating points of view - Stephanie, Stephanie and Emily are best friends.

Told with alternating points of view - Stephanie, Emily, and Sean. Plus, some of the story is told using posts from Stephanie's blog.

Stephanie is naive, creepy, and fake. Emily is arty, manipulative, and awful. Sean is Emily's dopey husband. A twisted psychological thriller.

I enjoyed the writing style, but the story itself was not that great. Stephanie and Emily are both unlikable, and not in a "they're morally corrupt, but interesting" way.

Even with unlikable characters, I want to root for someone, and this book didn't have that. There were some interesting happenings and twists.

It's just unfortunate that I never connected with any characters. Jun 18, Nat rated it did not like it Shelves: incomplete.

I wouldn't recommend this book to a flea, if a flea could read. I hated the blog chapters. They came across as phony and like Stephanie was talking to herself instead of her supposedly loyal followers, and if she had said moms one more time The other chapters featuring Stephanie were a little better but not much.

I thought a lot of the material was tacky and not something I wanted to continue reading. Wow, what a difference turning the movie into a comedy of sorts made.

After seeing it, I think I might be willing to watch Henry Golding just standing in a corner waving.

View All Critic Reviews Apr 12, Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively star in the odd dark comedy? A Simple Favor.

When her best friend goes missing Stephanie uses her cooking video blog to launch her own investigation with the help of her followers and soon learns that her friend wasn't who she thought she was and that she faked her own death.

Both Kendrick and Lively give strong performance especially Lively and have great chemistry together.

The script is kind of weak and takes a while to get to the plot, but once the murder mystery kicks in the film starts picking up momentum and doesn't let up.

And it's a good mystery, fully of suspense and intrigue. Plus there's some quirky black humor that's rather amusing. It has a few rough spots, but overall A Simple Favor is an entertaining and fun crime thriller.

Dann M Super Reviewer. Mar 11, Paul Feig takes his turn at suspense thriller and delivers a fun suspenseful movie led wonderfully by Kendrick and Lively and Henry Golding also brings his A game to this stylish entertaining movie.

Christopher O Super Reviewer. Jan 29, Interesting to see Feig directing a film out of his element. The Ghostbusters reboot was a slight misdirection for the filmmaker, but he returns with a film that showcases a wide range of genres.

It's nice to see a film with a clever 50s noir style plot return to the big screen. Sadly the film did not take the box office by storm, but it is far from a bad film and should garner more interest now that it is away from the mainstream market.

The film is very twisty and it's this story movement that keeps this unfolding at an interesting pace.

You have no real idea how this will conclude, but you just know it won't end well for someone. The film can't live up to the hype and drops the ball slightly in its conclusion, I had expected something darker, but they go for a very safe ending.

Great return to complicated plot lines and I hope more high end filmmakers return to small budget filmmaking like Feig. Fun and clever film that should fine a good home.
