Enjoyable read...e.xcept for the footnotes!,
This review is from: I've Got Your Number (Hardcover)
Have just finished reading this, having started yesterday. As with all SK books it was difficult to put it down. Like others have said the story line was a tad predicatable and the footnotes were an annoyance. Most of the time I missed the number in the main text so had to read back to see what they related to and in the end gave up. I found that they just interrupted the flow of my reading.
That said overall the book was an enjoyable read.

Completely agree, great book, footnotes were an irritating and distracting device.

I enjoyed this and sped through it very quickly, but I did find the footnotes highly irritating. They were buried in the text so I kept missing them and when I did spot them it only interrupted the flow of the story. They didn't add anything in my opinion and I'm getting annoyed just thinking about it!

I am a huge fan of SK books, I love her style and wit and like so many people have already commented I found it very hard to put this book down. I started reading it on Sunday afternoon and have finished it today at lunchtime. I had a feeling how the ending was going to turn out but without spoiling it for anyone else who has yet to read this wonderful book, there was just the slightest twist which was an interesting twist. Let's just say it gave me enough to make me want to get to the end. I'm afraid to say that I did find the footnotes annoying as I simply wasn't looking for the numbers that suddenly appear in the main text and therefore I too was going backwards and forwards scanning for the numbers I had missed once I had reached the bottom of the page. I kept imagining this electrifying relationship that was being created between the two main characters. Sophie, you are a wonderful writer, please more books. They certainly brighten up my life.
