Attachments - Rainbow Rowell You can see my review hereImagine this: there I am, ill, sat on the sofa and the something drops through my letterbox. It's a package and when I open it there are books inside. Magical. One of these books is Attachments and I put down my re-read of City of Bones especially to start it. Yes, I was that desperate to start this book.Attachments is about a guy called Lincoln whose job it is to check the emails sent by employees of The Courier, a newspaper house where Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder work. Beth and Jennifer both have a habit of sending each other emails throughout the day and the majority of them get flagged up.Written in both third person and through email correspondence, Attachments was a book that I added straight to my favourites shelf after reading it. I loved the way it was written, I loved the characters; I loved everything about it.I was immediately drawn into the book and loved Beth and Jennifer straight away. Their emails really added a humorous tone to the book and I'd be happy to read a book entirely about their emails.I think the novel thing about this book (excuse the pun) is that it's set in a time when people didn't have smart phones to hand and WiFi. I was also pleased because one of the emails in the book was sent on the day I was born and so that made me very happy.As I've already read Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, this was the last of Rowell's books that I had to read so I don't know how I'm going to wait until Spring 2014 for her next, Landlines.
