Book Reviews Update
I just realised that since I wrote my last book reviews, I forgot to actually update a proper opinion about The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. All I can say is that it was THE best book I have read last year -it was sweet, touching, romantic in a non-mushy way. I loved the weird concept of an illness that made the main male character time travel and how the characters handled themselves. I actually felt moved at the end of the book! (I usually never feel moved by anything.) I have already recommended it to all my friends who like reading, and have even given a copy out as a birthday present. So far my friends all really liked the book. The story maybe a bit confusing at first, but just read through it and it will make sense once you grasp the concept. So go buy and read!
OK back to books I read this year. I waited for The Undomestic Goddess by the oh-so-famous Sophie Kinsella, (her Shopaholic series is so famous that even guys who don't read chick lit have heard of it!) This chick-lit is basically about a super smart lawyer who makes a mistake at her high-power law firm, runs away to the countryside to be a maid and oh surprise surprise, ends up meeting a guy there.
I have to say I was quite disappointed in this book. I usually love chick lits, but this story was so... well, dumb that even I couldn't get into it. I mean, I understand that when people panic they run away, but the misunderstanding that landed the lawyer the job as a maid was just completely unbelievable. It totally contradicted the fact that she is supposed to be intelligent, logical, and thus should be somewhat coherent in letting the interviewing lady know that she was not applying to be a maid. Anyways, there's more but I'm not going to rant here.
So has anyone else read these two books? What did you think of them?
