How very cleverly written!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I've Got Your Number (Hardcover)I LOVE Sophie Kinsella, I have enjoyed all of her books and laugh at each one I read.
I was so eager to get my hands on this new novel however I felt a bit anxious as I had read mixed reviews with some negative reaction to the use of footnotes.
Well I got the book on Friday and finished it on Saturday, like every other Sophie Kinsella novel I was gripped and couldn't wait to pick it up again when I had to stop reading for a while...(to cook tea for my children for instance.....not that I begrudge them their tea - but really, when I am in the middle of a good book!!?)
I really liked the character Poppy, she was funny, dizzy but intelligent with a high emotional quotient and she doesn't give up. I thought the story line was really clever, the use of text conversations were great fun and I really liked the addition of footnotes.....they were funny and fitted in with the story very astutely.
I loved it, I laughed out loud several times and read the whole book smiling - now that is worth paying for!

I loved your review and thought it captured exactly what I felt about the book. Plus having to stop for things like cooking for the children and going to work ... I mean, really! ;-) Glad to know someone else felt this way. Thanks for sharing.

I totally agree. I got used to the footnotes and found them funny. I am 64 and love all her books. I know that some people think its just 'chick lit' but I believe that she is a very intelligent lady and certainly does plenty research. Can't wait for the next book. Thanks.
