Attachments

Rainbow Rowell

I've not made the quickest start to my reading this year. A health issue has meant that I really couldn't concentrate on story for any length of time for the past few weeks.
To get me started I decided to pick out an easy read, something that I've read before.
Attachments is a novel about people working for a newspaper in 1999 and early 2000. It's a sweet tale of female friendship between a film critic and a subeditor told epistolary style through emails which are read by the poor IT guy who has to check for abuse of the Internet by employees. There's a believable but always fundamentally creepy romantic relationship that develops between the IT guy and the film columnist. After all he's read all sorts of things about her life without her knowledge or consent.
It's not as good as later books by the author but it is enjoyable and as I say it's an easy read.

Rating: B+
