About this deal

The first is a plot that is inconsistent in describing the situation in a narrative that is too long, and sometimes the explanation is too short. Millions of readers have come to adore New York Times best-selling author Sophie Kinsella’s irrepressible heroine. Apesar do filme poder beneficiar com algumas coisas do livro que não usaram, o livro beneficiaria muito mais com o filme.

Speaking of which her over stimulated Visa card almost becomes a character of its own here, and her bank manager eventually does with the inclusion of hilarious letters from Endwich Bank and the ever inventive ways Becky finds to not pay her Visa bill or in most cases ever even receive it.Making mistakes like she makes once is funny never learning from your mistakes book after book would just make the character pathetic to me. Well this book is a masterclass in light-comedy tongue-firmly-in-cheek modern woman storytelling, I kid you not!

so me being me took out all her books and started organizing them, then I found 2 copies of THIS book and she just went— "here. I was chugging right along thinking I'd finish it this week when I hit a part that I know is gonna wreck me. From introducing herself to the bank manager that she has spent months avoiding by accident, to getting caught looking at her dates cheque book, it all seems totally outlandish and extreme but is hilarious none the less. I think that if Rebecca had grown into a miraculously responsible woman, totally transformed, changing her expending ways into frugality, I would have been bored. And if that's not unbearable enough, in this one Rebecca Bloomwood personifies materialism---AND THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS THAT IT'S OKAY!If there is a male equivalent to women’s mindless and completely uncool pursuit of name-brand (read: expensive) fashion, it would be a dude with a mullet peeling out in a Trans Am in the parking lot of a strip club blaring a Ted Nugent anthem. Her crazy schemes to make extra money, like homemade potholders to sell but never following thru on is a page out of my life.

Her own method of managing money is to hide her Visa bills under the bed and hope they’ll disappear. Every time she tries to stop spending, she winds up needing a little pick me up as she gets down in the dumps—a feeling many can relate to. Over the next few days, when I would be taking my 20 minutes for lunch, I started to leaf through the book for lack of better reading material (I had read the copy of People from three months prior so many times I could probably name the make-ups, break-ups, new babies and total tramps. Fans of the series who love Becky just as she is (and has always been) will enjoy this seventh series entry.

Kinsella’s heroine is blessed with the resilience of ten women, and her damage-limitation brain waves are always good for a giggle. I love Luke and his character, the way he can mostly bring Becky back to earth but also trust her and care for her despite her mistakes. However, she really grows up in 300 pages and even though she still has her flaws, I really began to respect her and want to continue on with the series. The thing is, for me, the story went about for too long before I managed to see anything other than the bling-bling obsessed Rebecca.
