How could I not love Sophie Kinsella? She’s extremely creative, unique, and just brilliant! She’s the one who made me love chick-lit novels, and I’m very grateful being able to read her books. She’s sooo hilarious and I wanna meet her one day.
First of, this is a great deal of laughter! Just when they say first impressions last, the second I read the first page, I know I’m going to read it throughout. The premise is engaging, and is really one of a kind! I’ve also read the first few books of the Shopaholic series (and I’m not gonna miss the rest of the installment), and at first, I thought there are some resemblance between Rebecca (from Shopaholic) and Emma (from this book) and I had doubts that Emma will ever channel a totally different character. But nooo, they’re unique in their own different way, and just as funny! I had high expectations that this will be something new and refreshing, and actually, I enjoyed it! As sympathetic as I can be for Emma because she lies all the freaking time, I just can’t get enough of the humor her tactless babbling mouth speaks! It’s just remarkable.
Surely, there are too many scenes that made me laugh out loud (literally, everyone around me stares) and I know I wouldn’t forget ever! Like when they raided Jemima’s wardrobe, and they were very careful they thought she made traps (and she really did), and when Emma pretends to like crochet, and just everything! I thought the love story is really good too! I love a bit of adult material in terms of romance, because love at first sight thingys or cheesy teenage lines and plotlines are bit freaking me out. Their love story is a perfect mix and Jack is pretty adorable, I must say! The progression about Emma is also something that I want to commend. Sophie Kinsella creates characters who starts with a lousy, peccable behaviors at first, but you’ll be very pleased how they change and transit into a better one.
Another lighthearted read that I totally enjoyed, the humor is irresistible and utterly captivating!
