Not brilliant, but not terrible
on 30 September 2007
I'm in two minds about this book. As my title says, it wasn't brilliant, but not terrible either. The amount of reviews that compare it to the shopaholic series are annoying though, because of course it was gonna be different! Sophie Kinsella can't just write about the shopaholic all the time. Samantha does have some similarities to Becky but i never got the two confused.
The thing I was looking forward to most was Samantha's relationship with Nathaniel, as I do enjoy a good love story, but it was all ruined for me by the way they 'got it on' shall I say. It was so stupid and un-romantic, it made me wonder if Sophie Kinsella has trouble writing about love.
Also, I think Miss Kinsella should have share's in Blackberries, since they are mentioned about 50 million times! Who would want to be a Lawyer after reading this book!
So this book was a bit hit and miss for me, I dont think I have any more to say on it really.
