REVIEW: Attachments

ATTACHMENTS - Rainbow Rowell

“‘Hi, I’m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you.’ Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It’s company policy.) But they can’t quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives. Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill can’t believe this is his job now – reading other people’s e-mail. When he applied to be ‘Internet security officer,’ he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers – not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke. When Lincoln comes across Beth’s and Jennifer’s messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can’t help being entertained – and captivated – by their stories. By the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late to introduce himself. What would he say…?”

*NOTE: Summary taken from back cover of the book.

It’s been a while since I last read a novel that’s purely a love story and I am so glad that this was the book to break that hiatus. It is honestly all you could ever ask for in a cheesy (but not TOO cheesy) love story. There were highs and lows and everything in between. Unfortunately, the “everything in between” gets kinda boring and draggy. Fortunately, good stuff almost always happens after so it pulls you right back up.

The story itself is charming. It’s definitely not your typical boy meets girl story but then it has all the elements of one, which is probably why I enjoyed reading it. It’s weird, I know. It even had some outstanding (albeit cheesy) quotable quotes. My personal favorite being:

“Do you believe in love at first sight?”

“I don’t know,” he said. “Do you believe in love before that?”

AAAHH! I just about swooned. HAHA!

The ending was beautifully executed. There was closure, character development and, of course, happy endings (which, you know, without it, a love story will be just pointless). :)
