So I used to work with this girl called Sarah, who was a real no bullshit kind of person I really liked her because she was intelligent and articulate, someone I could actually hold a conversation with She was well read, she kept up on current events and she could talk politics while maintaining integrity and respectability When I saw this book on the break table in the back, I never would have thought that it was hers When I found out I made fun of her I couldn t believe a girl like her was reading one of those girly indulgent drugstore bookshelf books about some cutsey flustered vunerable woman who almost manages to overcome her sweet, sugary problems by the last few pages Almost Over the next few days, when I would be taking my 20 minutes for lunch, I started to leaf through the book for lack of better reading material I had read the copy of People from three months prior so many times I could probably name the make ups, break ups, new babies and total tramps After a few chapters I was inexplicably hooked I had to know what else the silly little spendthrift was going to get herself into and of course, eventually out of I read it over the course of about 4 or 5 lunch breaks It was easy to slip into the back of my mind, underneath the homework assignments and papers and substantial literature I was in the middle of, behind the bills t
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, but everything surrounding it changes.So I MUST admit I preferred the movie to the book, but that s only because it was focused I should say There is no love hate relationship between Luke and her and it s dramatic and the story better outlined, while things here are comedic than dramatic and Becky s dreams not at all mentioned Forget ALETTE.But it s still amazing and, truth be told, if I hadn t seen the movie, I would probably have given it a 5 star rating Luke disapp
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 physically stress me out.2 Half way into the book I felt really sad because I know that there is so many people who this is their reality This shallow mindset or consumption of caffeine, sugar, shopping, fashion the constant carve of distraction and never learning to deal It just seemed to glorify being shallow and reinforce that if and when you are you should keep on being so because 3 The modern day fairy tale ending for could happen Debt paid off, get the job you want, they guy, the clothes, the romance, the mo
I really hate slamming books, really I do This book is the typical chick lit that I ve grown to love, and to be fair, it s a quick read.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

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 Sophie Kinsella s writing style, I enjoyed it She writes everything humorously but with a ring of insight a
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.

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
