Attachments by Rainbow Rowell: Review

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Page Count: 323pgs
Cover:

Synopsis (Found on Goodreads):


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.


Plot: 
Guy gets heart broken his 1st year of college and hasn't dated since. He's wacky and nerdy but has a steady job. Yes it's a job reading other people's emails but hey, they were warned not to send anything dirty or inappropriate.

Two women- one married, one dating- emailing at work -a newspaper- they discuss some interesting topics a few are really touchy so be warned.

Those touchy subjects-those embarrassing things you really don't want people to know about- yah well He reads those, but doesn't warn the women. What could possibly go wrong? Answer everything.

Here are my thoughts I posted on Goodreads while reading Attachments;


01/09page 11
3.0%"Pretty basic right now. Like the concept so far."
01/16
46.0%"So we learn a little more about Sam and school in California. I'm interested see how much longer Chris lasts."

My favorite Quotation from Attachments
“I didn’t know someone could love me like this,” she said. “Could love me and love me and love me without …needing space.” Lincoln wasn’t asleep. He rolled on top of her. “There’s no air in space,” he said.” 
― Rainbow RowellAttachments

On Goodreads I starred the book a 3/5 stars. I liked the story line but there wasn`t just anything that popped out at me to remember. There was the nerdy moments when Lincoln is talking about D&D and when Justin (his college friend) is talking about music but nothing that made me want to jump on the bandwagon.


Overall:
 it was refreshing to read a book where the main character was a guy. I'm glad that not everything was "your typical" adult life. Would recommend to anyone who feels stuck in life.


What things do you do as an adult that would be seen as childish?

TTFN,
Ashley
