Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
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 . . . ?
I really loved this novel! It was my first by Rainbow Rowell and I already knew this one was going to be my favorite. I love that time period and I wish I was working at the office at that time. I'm also a sucker for guys like Lincoln and I studies IT for a year (I only liked the software part so I quit because from second year and further it was all about hardware) and I get really excited when someone shares the same interests. He was so romantic! I almost cried at the end (and you guys know I never cry when I'm reading a book).
Beth was also really funny and all I wanted to know how their connection was going to be and how the storyline would develope.
Rainbow's writing style made me think of John Green's writing style. His story of An Abundance of Katherine's and Paper Towns reminded me of this story, but the charachters in here are (much) older.
It was a really quick read and easy to follow, so you want to get out of your reading slumb or a cute, easy read: read this one!
