It's the great book of Sophie Kinsella. Reading it, you live not yours but another - main character's - life. First of all the main character lives in rush and you are reading that chapters also in rush, but when her life changes, your reading speed also changes.
There are a lot of funny moments in the book that puts smile on your face! It is one of those books, which you'd like to read once more.
