Hi There Blogosphere,
So a couple of months ago i read my first Rainbow Rowell book. I went outside the box from most people who were reading Eleanor and Park and chose Attachments as my first read. I've promised for a while that i would do a review for Attachments on my youtube channel. But i thought it would the perfect excuse to to write a blog post.
So here is my review of Attachments by Rainbow Rowell.
Attachments follows the main character of Lincoln. Lincoln is an IT guys whose job is to read any company emails that have been flagged in the email filter to ensure the company is being compliant with policies. Lincoln starts getting a number of emails from Beth and Jen, their emails frequently get caught in filters but instead of Lincoln reporting or warning Beth and Jen he keeps on reading their email conversations. While reading Beth and Jen's conversations he starts to fall in love with Beth. Taking Lincoln a ride of discovery of love and if love is possible before first site.
I loved this book. I felt that Rainbow Rowell capture the mood of the IT guy perfectly. (I have worked in IT, i know first hand just how awkward and shy some IT guys can be). This book was more than a guy falling in love with a girl. This book was about a lifes journey. Lincoln had a number of insecurities caused by his previous relationship and throughout this book Lincoln works through his problems. Lincoln was struggling in life, but he didn't realise how tough his life was until he started making changes.
This book is about growth and being able to step outside your normal schedule/ routine and change what you don't like about your life. This book had an amazing moral, that no matter how old you are, you are always growing and learning and that changes. no matter how small can be amazing.
This book was written wonderfully. The character building was very well done. Even through the emails with Beth and Jen you learnt so much about their lives. And Lincoln... Well Lincoln i just wanted to give the guy a hug!
I rated this book 4/5 stars and would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a good contemporary read.
Until Next Time,
May the Odds be Ever in Your Favour.
