‘I’ve lost it. 😦 The only thing in the world I wasn’t supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It’s been in Magnus’s family for three generations. And now, the very same day his parents are coming, I’ve lost it. The very same day. Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive!! ‘ From that I was hooked. The book is typical Sophie Kinsella, funny, light, a fast paced plot and honestly I am sure quite a few people thought I was crazy each morning on the tube as I read it and literally laughed out loud. I read the Kindle edition on my iphone – this was really not good with the footnotes which are in the book – I did not mind them per se but on a smaller screen it was a tad annoying but if reading on Kindles and other larger screens it should not be a problem.
I loved Poppy, she was relatable and she genuinely wanted everyone to be happy, Sam well I actually have a colleague who fits his description – emails are always straight to the point and he has a crazy girlfriend. Magnus and his family – I certainly would not want to be Poppy and even be challenged to a Scrabble game with such academics. As you can see the characters in the book certainly to life as you read it, I stayed up reading the book until 2.00am – yes it is that good BUT can I say if you’re looking for an enlightening, mentally challenging book then you already know Sophie Kinsella does not cover that genre and this book would not be for you. If you want to laugh and an easy read then this is the book for you. I sure hope that this book like Confessions of a Shopaholic becomes a movie – Jude Law could be cast as Sam and Benedict Chumberbatch be Magnus.
