Another great read from Sophie Kinsella. In this newest novel we meet Lexi Smart. The novel opens with Lexi being 25 years old, out with friends, struggling with her job. She falls on some stairs and hits her head and wakes up in the hospital. The thing is, somehow it’s three years later, she’s married, rich, and has a high-powered job-not to mention she can barely recognize herself because of all the changes to her appearance. The novel goes on and lets us in to learn the things that happened to Lexi in those missing three years and takes us through her struggles now as she’s learning about herself and finding that having it all may not be all that it’s cracked up to be. It’s a fast and light read-perfect for summer reading I think. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it for Sophie Kinsella fans and others.
Hey, Dar. Thought I’d come by and read your review. I’m glad you enjoyed it and yes, summer would be a good time to read this. If it had been condensed, I would have thought better of it. I still like Kinsella, though. 🙂
Joy, have you ever read The Undomestic Goddess by Kinsella? I liked that one too-another of her stand alone titles.
I didn’t read TUG, but I did read Can You Keep a Secret? I read it early in 2004, so I have no thoughts on it, but I did rate it – 3.75/5.
You know I don’t think I’ve read Can you Keep a Secret. I thought I did but I just looked it up and it doesn’t sound familiar. You gave it a pretty good rating so I may pick it up at the library one of these days.
My general memories of CUKAS? are good. I think you’ll like it.
