But, my praise stops there.
The main character of this book, Rebecca Bloomwood, is the most annoying, daft, and ridiculous character I have ever had the misfortune to read about I understand that she s a shopaholic , but I ve had quite a few friends who fell into that catagory that were never in danger of being as simple minded and arrogant as Rebecca.
Every time I put this book down, I find myself angry My forehead is wrinkled, and I m snapping at my innocent boyfriend.
Why I ll give you a hint It isn t because I m upset at having to put the book down All I can tell you is that unless you, yourself, are ignorant, incredibly stupid, deceitful, materialistic, dishonest, and rudeyou will find nothing to associate with in Becky Bloomwood.
The Shopaholic series always puts me in a good mood Really all of Sophie Kinsella s books put me in a good mood They are just so light, fluffy and fun Sophie Kinsella s writing is like ice cream on hot July day In Confessions of a Shopaholic we meet Rebecca Bloomwood Becky to her friends a young financial writer who longs to write for a fashion magazine She lives in a trendy flat with her bestie and loves to shop I mean really really loves to shop So much so that she finds herself deeply in debt To cope with her financial problems she does what any shopping addict would do.
She shops evenRunning upanddebt Now since this is a light comedic book all of this is handled in the most hilarious of ways I never for one second dislike Becky or look down on her for her terrible financial pr This book pleasantly surprised me I went into this book expecting it to be just like the movie which, by the way I love , but it might as well have been a completely different story The only things it has in common with the movie are the character names, the obsessive shopper and in debt main character, and the title I adjusted my expectations and thought it would be one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the book, but I loved them equally but in different ways The book was far less cutesy than the movie as it made Rebecca the main character a dislikable character at first Like really, I hated her However, she really grows up in 300 pages and even though she still has her flaws, I really began to respect her and want to continue on with the series As for So After college, I wanted nothing to do with serious books And so began my quest for all books fluffy and light The cover of this screamed fluff at me This book is NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY Take it for what it is hilarious chick lit Otherwise, you ll find yourself realizing that if you actually knew a character as shallow as Becky Bloomwood, you d probably give her a look of disgust and hiss at her as she walked by or something Also, don t think too much about her relationship with Luke Because seriously, why would a Luke EVER want a Becky She s a total tart So, take my advice and just laugh at Becky s ridiculous justifications for her purchases Even now, I find myself thinking If I buy that red hat, I can be known as the girl in the red hat.
Made a promise to myself to readSophie Kinsella books this year and will be starting off with the Shopaholic series I m in need of light reads at all times Thanks, life.
This is one of the most poorly written books I ve read this year.
BUT It s also one of the funniest and cleverest and most interestingly narrated It s so very extremely hard to put it down Rebecca Bloomwood is a funny and heart warming heroine Her fear of facing her ever growing debts cracked me up every time she would receive a new letter regarding her credit.
Oh, that was so much fun Really, I swear, this book gives a new definition to the word fun Somehow, Sophie Kinsella manages to create a perfectly realistic, three dimensional heroine while completely charming us with her unbelievably original and laugh out loud worthy misadventures.
I can t believe how different it is from the movie Actually, I ve never witnessed so many changes in a story It s as if the producers of the movie adaptation COMPLETELY rewrote Miss Bloomwood s story Her predicament remains the same, I was in the library when I walked by this book, while I was looking for another book I pulled it off the shelf and because I ve found and read some pretty amazing book with this randomness, I thought ok Another reason I have become a little obsessed with shopping on ebay I thought this girl book would be fun, it would be like a new girl friend, getting to now good and bad about her, how she thinks about life.
So, I checked it out and I read it in about 6 hours Reason it sucked 1 The main charter was English so I didn t relate the stores that she was bragging about shopping at and it didn t have the SAME sex in the city LUSTFUL MATERIALISTIC effect on me So, her prideful continuous description of these clothes she owned and was in debt for became ridiculous And her constant shopping while in debt, actually started to
