Hello again my lovely amazing literary comrades! This review won't be nice, so if you wish not to read it, go read the other review I just posted, about The Red Pyramid, which sings that book's praises. If you wish to continue, lets go!
Confessions of a Shopaholic is the first in the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella. It stars Rebecca Bloomwood, a young woman who is, as the title implies, a shopaholic. She lives in a flat in England with close friends, and has a job at a magazine called Successful Saving (dripping with irony huh?). As she tries to curb her spending, she attracts the attention of wealthy and handsome Luke Brandon.
Ugh, I detest this book. I couldn't get through even the first 22 pages. I just despise the prose and the characters were so one dimensional, you could push them over with one finger like cardboard. The characters, as I said, were bland, the prose was horrible, the whole thing reeked of bad. Honestly, that's all I really have to say on this book. Sorry Sophie, better luck next time.
I'll next be reviewing 7th Victim by Alan Jacobson.
Until next time comrades.
Viva la literature!
