Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Attachments - Rainbow Rowell

This is the first book I've read from Rainbow Rowell and aside from such topics as broken hearts, pregnancy, and falling in love, I thought it could've been written for children. However, I did like Lincoln O'Neill - the main character, even more than I did Beth and Jennifer. The reason I couldn't get into the book was in fact because of the two email banters between Beth and Jennifer.  I  had read Click - An Online Love Story and was somewhat disappointed it was going to be like that only we were spared the [From, To, Date, Time and Subject] every goddamn time :p


I first started listening to Attachments in my sister's car while taking a trip to visit my mother on Mother's Day. Probably no more than 10 chapters in, my sister didn't want to listen to it any longer and suffice it to say that weekend I didn't read much.


Attachment was more like a detachment from my sister, mother, brother, family etc....wait. isn't that what the bible teaches? 


Anyway I picked the book up again yesterday and finished it the following day.
