Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

AttachmentsAttachments by Rainbow Rowell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a lovely little book! This is a nice, easy to read novel that is light, fun and interesting. I found it refreshing and charming in every way! I didn't want to put it down - in fact, I spent half of my Saturday curled up with it when I really had other things that I needed to do. But, I couldn't wait to find out how the stories of Lincoln, Beth and the rest of the characters would continue. And, then, when it was over, I was so sad - because I'd thoroughly enjoyed my time in the world that Rainbow Rowell created.

The format that Rainbow Rowell uses to frame the story by weaving in emails was genius! It gives the novel such a unique and interesting vibe! The characters in the novel just threw themselves off the page - I wanted to be friends with these people! And the setting/time period, made me want to go back to the late 1990s for a few days!

I don't want to give anything away but wanted to mention that I felt that the author handled the ending of the book very well - I never felt that it went too far. It was just right, for me.

I just loved this book and already emailed several friends to tell them to PICK THIS BOOK UP! I think its a great read & I'm so happy to have found Rainbow Rowell! I can't wait to see what else she has for us in her future novels!
