What Did I Think?
Attachments is the first book that I have read by Rainbow Rowell but it certainly won’t be the last. I have been hearing about her for a long time because of the success of Eleanor and Park. I didn’t even realize that this one wasn’t a YA novel until I started reading it. That fact only served to make me like it more.
The funny thing about this story is that I shouldn’t like Lincoln because of what he is doing. I shouldn’t. I do.
For one thing, I would do the same thing if I were in his shoes. How hard would it be to be given free reign over other people’s personal emails and not read them?? Especially when they are as fun and entertaining as the emails between Beth and Jennifer.
Speaking of Beth and Jennifer, I liked them both. Though I wanted to smack them both at times, I didn’t have to think that for long because they really kept each other in check pretty well. I think what I liked more than the ladies themselves was the honest and interesting friendship they had together. You rarely see that in books. The main character is the only one who gets to have a well rounded personality and we are supposed to focus all our attention on them. In Attachments though, We got to know Jennifer almost as well. Through that we got a good look at a great friendship and I hope for more of those in literature!
BOTTOM LINE: Rainbow Rowell has a new fan, Me!
