Rated 3 out of 5 by Julie from Ok I usually love Rainbow Rowell books but this one didn't quite do it for me. The story was cute but I couldn't bring myself to love any of the characters.
I found Lincoln and Beth quite pathetic and had a hard time identifying to or empathizing with any of them. The writing style flows well and makes this book a very easy read despite the mediocre story.
It was somewhat entertaining, but I would not read it again. Rated 2 out of 5 by Angela from could not get through this book only made it half way through before I gave up.
Attachments: A Novel, Book by Rainbow Rowell (Paperback) | hamhillfort.info
I wanted to like it, but this is not the book for me Date published: It is so typical to not want to do something because of moral reasons or because it's not good for you but then end up doing it anyway because it's so easy to do. The book did slow down significantly in the second half and a lot of it could easily have been skipped.
I was just waiting for them to meet. Rated 4 out of 5 by anon from Very Cute Such a cute and sweet story Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Linn from Cute and happy predictable and cute, just like i like 'em! Rated 4 out of 5 by Nikki from Craving more!
I don't read a lot of contemporaries but this book really makes me wants to pick up more! I thought it was fun, cute, fast paced and i got really into it! I love how it took no effort to just get so attached hahah get it? I really didn't see how Lincoln reading their emails is creepy since that was his job.. I only had 2 problems: Other than that i really enjoyed it!! Rated 4 out of 5 by Lacie from Adorable Although the beginning was a little but slow, you just fall in love with the book as you gradually go on.
The story is amazing and the characters are really really great. Rated 3 out of 5 by Bexe from Cute An easy read - predictable but cute Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by Taylor from Torn I really wanted to love this one because I so loved other novels by this author There were definitely moments where I laughed or felt connected to the characters' stories, but there were more moments when I didn't.
It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. Rated 2 out of 5 by Emily from Sits wrong with me Not great. Being initially interested by the concept, I was hoping the author would be able to pull it off, but it's hard to root for a couple who has never met. I was never able to get past the creepiness of Lincoln reading Beth's emails and falling in love with her.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Juliana from Amazing This was relatable and heartwarming and I couldn't put it down! Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennifer from Amazing Adorable love story that's perfect for anyone who works in an office. Lovable characters with a lot of wit and edge. What a great story. Even for someone like me who doesn't really enjoy contemporary novels. However, Rowell crafted such an engaging story with such detailed, and again endearing characters that I couldn't help being drawn in.
Also, as someone with a background in both IT and Journalism, I found a lot to relate to here. There is also something fascinating to be said about using email threads as the medium to tell a story. It smacks of realism because so much of our communication with those we devykge secrets to is now digital. There was some real creativity needed to craft a cohesive storyline that kept me wanting to learn more and more.
The only drawback for me, was the ending. With only two chapters to go I was sure the author was going to surprised me with a unique conclusion that didn't fall victim to typical romance tropes. Alas, no such luck! If you enjoy quirky meet-cutes, really incredible characters, and embarrassingly accurate realism, this read is for you. Rated 4 out of 5 by Julia from Really fun! An interesting concept that was really well executed. Rated 4 out of 5 by tesaa from Ugh, love it I like the concept Rowell did in this book.
I always look forward reading Beth and Jennifer's email to each other. Cannot wait to get my hands on Rowell's other books!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Meaghan from This was exactly what I expected, except it wasn't I have really enjoyed the previous books I have read by Rainbow Rowell, which is why I decided to pick up Attachments. This book follows three main characters; Lincon, Beth and Jennifer.
Both Jennifer and Beth work in the Journalism field and write emails to each other, and Lincon has a night job which consists of reading flagged emails and giving out warnings. This book follows these three characters and the odd relationships which are brought to life by this plot.
Although I enjoyed the character building and believe both the plot and the characters are extremely relatable and funny I also felt the story was extremely SLOW. During the first pages, I kept asking myself if it was going to get better which it did or if I should simply stop reading this book.
I believe it may be the format of the book which for me made it feel as though the story was not "going anywhere". Overall this is a character driven story which includes relatable characters, some great humor but somewhat of a stagnant plot in my opinion. I would recommend this book, but do not consider it to be my favorite read by this author. Rated 4 out of 5 by Kellie from worth the read An unlikely love story, where the outcome was expected yet riveting at the same time.
Rated 3 out of 5 by PerksOfBeingAFangirl from It was okay I'm a teenager and didn't expect this book to be about characters in their lates so it was kind of hard for me to get through. But I did, and it was okay. This was no exception! Rated 5 out of 5 by abruceoh from Loved it This was such a fun light read I whipped right through it. I really enjoyed this book Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by abruceoh from Loved it Such a fun light read, was able to whip right through it. Such a good book Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Erin from Loved it A light read, but not cringe-worthy like many Date published: Light and fun, not too serious or preachy.
It was a sweet story of two people slowly falling in love in the workplace, not even aware of each other. It was easy to read and didn't take very long, but it makes you feel good when you read it. I would recommend to anyone who needs a light read, especially if you are a romantic at heart. Rated 3 out of 5 by Sophia from Cute A great romance read, light and happy. Not as intense and satisfying as he YA novels, but still incredible Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by imjustmea from Fun and lovely I won this book years ago in an online contest and I remember that I read it all in one sitting.
I loved it. The premise is fun RR manages to avoid any creepiness even for those who are not old enough to remember the beginning on the internet years. I loved the characters and they felt so real to me that I wanted to be friends with them. I laughed out loud often at their e-mail conversations. I've gone on to read all of RR's novels.
She's great! Rated 4 out of 5 by sonyaaa from Rainbow Rowell does it again. I can't wait until her new release. Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephanie from Sweet Romance One of my favourite romance novel of all time! I love everyone and I can feel the connection between the 2 protagonists even though they don't meet until near the end of the book!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sofie from Hilarious! Often laugh-out-loud funny, Attachments was a very pleasant surprise for me. I am a huge Rainbow Rowell fan but the plot didn't particularly appeal to me. I'm glad I gave this book a chance because I ended up loving it!
It is a truly funny story with relatable characters who have relatable problems. I was sad to say good-bye to them at the end of the book. I instantly fell in love with the Lincoln, one of the main characters. I wished I'd meet a Lincoln of my own someday. Very funny and really really really good, totally recommend others to read it. I enjoyed it very much.
This book was fascinating because you only really ever get a glimpse of some of the characters from their e-mails and yet they are still really fleshed out.
A different concept, but one Rowell pulls off seamlessly!
I loved it! Rated 5 out of 5 by Kayehtea from Sounds great cant wait to read this book - rainbow rowell is fun! Rated 4 out of 5 by Jelly from cute! It's a quirky, lighthearted read that left me feeling satisfied. The emails were totally hilarious! Rated 5 out of 5 by Dominika from Loved it! I bought this about a month ago and devoured it in one day!
Couldn't focus on anything else. Such a lighthearted read, perfect for this gloomy time of year. Great writing! Rated 4 out of 5 by Maria from Lovely story! Such a lovely and sweet book!
Very relatable characters and plot. Also Beth and Jennifer's friendship is so nice to read about and their emails are so fun! I actually preferred this book over Rainbow Rowell's other novel Eleanor and Park but that one was also quite good. Rowell has an amazing ability of creating believable and likeable main characters. Such a great indie romance story that would translate well as a rom-com film.
I could not put this book down! Rated 5 out of 5 by booklover from Totally Enjoyable! Great characters, a strong story line, subtly humorous, and altogether entertaining! Loved it! Rated 5 out of 5 by Fields from Very cute love story! I picked this up on a whim and though I thought the book had a bit of a slow start, I got attached to the characters really quickly. It reminded me of "You've got mail! Rated 5 out of 5 by liss from Achingly adorable! Rainbow Rowell has this way of writing characters who are just such wonderful people that you want to give them big squeezy hugs and name your kids after them.
Or maybe you just wish that they existed so that they could be your friends. But at the same time, they're such real, raw people that the cute is never overkill. Lincoln is such a sweet person-- a 28 year old living with his mother who's never quite known how to be with people but is genuinely trying to get his life together. He's helpful, kind, and never quite perfect, which makes his relationships with others either awkward, wonderful, or wonderfully awkward. Beth and Jennifer are both hilarious and honest and fantastically raw with their lives, and I loved how we only see their perspectives through their emails back and forth.
The format of the book is so interesting, as we get two completely separate points of view in Lincoln and Beth and Jennifer's emails. I loved the whole idea of love in this book, as it was written in a way that lets the characters grow as individuals before they ever help each other to grow, which can be so important.
Also, the ideas of love at first sight and without sight are so sweet. Attachments is a light and satisfying read that is funny and sweet, but also contains some deeper themes of love, growth, and independence.
I would recommend it to anyone who needs a de-stressing book, or just a good story. Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing from Cute! Cute on top of cute!
Couldn't stop smiling the entire time, it made me feel like I had butterflies in my stomach. Lincoln is definitely my new book boyfriend: Rated 5 out of 5 by Lesley from Too cute I loved this story.
It helped a lonely night of mine fill up with laughter and hope. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I still want more! I have read all of her books and this is by far my favorite one! Rated 5 out of 5 by MIB from Amazing book! Amazing story. Kind of slow but great if you don't mind that.
Told in a very creative and fun way. I got very attached t0 the characters. Would reccomend this to teens and young adults. Rated 4 out of 5 by N Mah from A solid RomCom A workplace romantic comedy for the 21st century told in a really fresh, clever way. I grinned from the first page to the last.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pronghorn63 from Touching and sweet I can't say I expected much when I started reading this, but it quickly pulled me in. While I wouldn't describe ur as Literature, it us very wrll-written, with believable, well-written characters, an interesting plit that takes sone unexpected turns, and great dialogue. I wish more e-mails were as interesting as the ones in this book, and more men were as awkwardly charming and gentle as Lincoln.
Still worthy of 4 stars: Rated 5 out of 5 by Jasmine from A must read! Started this book in the afternoon at couldn't put it down! Great from start to finish! Rated 4 out of 5 by Victoria from Just an awesome read This book was amazing, deep, and didn't slow down. I absolutely loved it and enjoyed it. Rated 3 out of 5 by Crista from Sweet little romance The characters in this book were very likeable and I enjoyed the writing style. I liked how the story was written with regular chapters and then email exchanges.
However, the writing was very PG13 and young adult. I would have really enjoyed reading the premise of this book written for a more mature audience. All told, a sweet little romance that I enjoyed. Rated 4 out of 5 by Lisa from Attachments I can't remember laughing out loud reading a book before! So witty and bright. Rated 3 out of 5 by Lisa from Attachments I can't remember laughing out loud reading a book before!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heather from Fantastic What an interesting twist Kind of makes me want to make my emails much more interesting! Rated 5 out of 5 by Emma from I'm attached to this novel! Beautifully written, I felt connected with the characters. I can understand why Lincoln couldn't stop reading the e-mails because I couldn't either! Rated 5 out of 5 by Grace from Ridiculously Attached to Attachments Rowell's characters are just the best.
I want her to write my life. Rated 5 out of 5 by obviousmonkey from Cute Love Story My first book for I really loved the story. I think the Author did a great job with the love story.
I was almost picturing this as a Rom-Com movie. There were lots of references to movies and movie characters to draw parallels and normally I wouldn't like that so much but in this case, it makes sense since the character of Beth is a movie reviewer. I just feel like the ending was a bit rushed.
Would have wanted more details there. No further comment, I don't want to put spoilers. Well written that makes the characters and the story more real. Rated 5 out of 5 by teenfictionaddict from Rainbow Rowell does it again! Was already a fan of Rowell's after reading Eleanor and Park and Fangirl but this book was a lot of fun.
Rowell does an excellent job of crafting interesting multidimensional characters that really draw you into the story. I'm so impressed with this novel. Its engaging and intriguing and its so different! Its entertaining and loveable and touching and just so great!
Lincoln, a year-old living with his mother, lands a job at a newspaper reading other peoples mail and making sure they dont abuse the company's email policy. Its boring and dull, but when Beth and Jennifer, two best friends and co-workers, start to use the email for their personal use, Lincoln knows he should report them, or at least warn them.
But soon hes in over his head with their entertaining and fun stories, and it isnt before long when Lincoln starts to fall for Beth. But even if she didnt have a boyfriend she loves, what would he say? Attachments is such a great read. Its easy to read and sweet and you cant help but fall in love with all of the unique characters. The story is engaging and it is believeable - Lincoln, like many other people in this world, isnt always selfless and he sometimes can make stupid decisions, like continuing to read Jennifer and Beth's emails.
And he explains why its wrong but also why he still does it, which makes it even more real. Its written in Lincoln's POV third person and alternates with emails between Jennifer and Beth, and just from those emails readers get a feel for them and are so happy with their emails, its what captivates the most attention, i think. I honestly had no idea how Rowell was going to end it. At all. Because its not your typical romance, i didnt know what to expect.
But when the ending did come, i loved it. Yes, Lincoln is a great lead but ill admit, his character and personality can be a little dull, a bit dry. There really isnt much to him. And it can be a bit sappy at times, but that was just like once, so not a big deal at all.
Overall, i love this book. Sure, Lincoln's character could've been improved, and i didnt picture him as a big guy, meaning a guy who looks like a football player: Anyway, overall, Attachments is so fun and includes not deep topics but real and true to life topics, and the romance doesnt overpower the real stuff.
Yes, its the ultimate topic and main idea and whatnot but its all balenced really well. Interesting and a quick read, heartwarming and fun and funny and just a great book! Rated 5 out of 5 by Lauren from My new favorite book I loved it. It wad laugh out loud funny and made me want to read it all over again when I finished it. There is nothing cliche about this novel, like most chick-lit would have done in this situation.
I just wanted to hug Lincoln. In my top ten of best books read this year. Extra Content. Jennifer Scribner-Snyder To: Beth Fremont Sent: Where are you? Would it kill you to get here before noon? E-mail me when you get in, before you do anything else. Normally, two days before my period, my face is broken out, and I get pre-cramps cramping.
And instead of cramps, I feel this strangeness in my womb region. Almost a presence. This is not my first pregnancy scare. I feel different. First I get sick.
And then I get fat. And then I die of an aneurysm in the delivery room. He eats his sloppy joe in silence and thinks about the shapely new consumer-science teacher at the high school.
She wears black pumps and nude panty hose and rayon skirts that shimmy up her thighs whenever she sits down. About the Presence in your womb. Not the new consumer-science teacher. Perhaps a common-sensical kind of guy like Mitch would have been better off with that home ec teacher.
Or yesterday. Maybe he should have combed it when he got out of the shower last night.
And look at the clock. Did you just wake up? Really stir. The whole kitchen smelled like ham and onions and something else, something sweet. His stomach was growling. Talk and stir. Especially at night, in an empty building. But I read their e-mail. How can people express themselves in a place like that? Mail people. But this one was almost proud of it—gloaty. I think he told the neighbors that I subscribed to Ms.
You look hungry. Here, honey, hand me that plate. When he came home at night, he felt all over the way your hands feel when you get done eating French fries. The oil would get into his skin and his hair. The next day, he would sweat it out into his school clothes. At The Courier, it was ink.
A gray film over everything, no matter how much anyone cleaned. A gray stain on the textured walls and the acoustic ceiling tiles.
The night copy editors actually handled the papers, every edition, hot off the presses. They left gray fingerprints on their keyboards and desks. They reminded Lincoln of moles. Serious people with thick glasses and gray skin. That might just be the lighting, he thought. In full color. Lincoln spent most of his time at work in the information technology office downstairs. Lincoln liked getting called up to the newsroom, to reboot a machine or sort out a printer.
The newsroom was wide and open, with a long wall of windows, and it was never completely empty. The nightside editors worked as late as he did. They sat in a clump at one end of the room, under a bank of televisions. There were two, who sat together, right next to the printer, who were young and pretty. Yes, Lincoln had decided, you could be both pretty and molelike. He wondered if people who worked nights went on dates during the day.
Beth Fremont To: Jennifer Scribner-Snyder Sent: Last night, I got a call from my little sister. I remember. We like him, right? They named her Kiley. She was doomed from birth to marry a hunky, fratty premed major.
What did Chris say? That Kiley listens to too much Dave Matthews. Did you listen to that tape I left for you? In Bizarro World. In the real world, Chris is never going to propose. When the band is back on track.
