Book Review: Attachments: A Novel by Rainbow Rowell

I just finished reading this book and I have to say, I found it to be a delightful little read.  The character’s Lincoln, Beth, and Jennifer were very funny and believable as characters.  I loved reading their emails, getting to know them by what they said and how they said it. Reading their ups and downs just as Lincoln who’s job it was to read them did.  This is one of those books that you read in one sitting or at the very most over a weekend.  I would say, get it if you want to read a fun, feel-good book with a predictable but satisfying ending.

I give this book 4 stars due to the fact that I sped right through it.

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It’s company policy.) But they can’t quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill can’t believe this is his job now- reading other people’s e-mail. When he applied to be “internet security officer,” he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth’s and Jennifer’s messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can’t help being entertained-and captivated by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?
