Reviews for Attachments
Charming and Witty
I saw a number of glowing reviews for Attachments from some bloggers I really admire last year and so when I spied the novel on the shelves at my library I snatched it up. A story of an unconventional romance, that is told in an equally unconventional manner, Attachments deserves the praise heaped upon it.
It is through a series of emails between Beth and Jennifer, both employees of a newspaper, that we get to know these two women. Despite a ban on using email for personal correspondence and the knowledge that their mail is being monitored, they chat candidly about a variety of subjects. Most notably, Jennifer is married and under pressure by her husband to consider starting a family while Beth's relationship has stalled.
The novel though is from the point of view of Lincoln, the IT guy, recently graduated and back at home after seven years of college, Lincoln is lonely. Working a quiet night shift Beth and Jennifer's missives are the highlight of his long work hours. He has never been particularly comfortable with the idea of monitoring people's email and he knows he should give Beth and Jennifer a warning, but he finds himself drawn in by their banter. He is particularly charmed by Beth's wit, her support of her Jennifer, and her pop culture references and he finds himself falling in love with a girl he has never seen.
Whether or not Lincoln gets the girl, you need to discover it for yourself. With plenty of humour and heart, Attachments is such an engaging contemporary romance with wonderful and real characters. by Shelley Cusbert
