Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

A Review

Last summer I was so excited for the release of Sophie Kinsella's latest, Twenties Girl. I had been a fan of all her other novels including the Shopaholic series. Right from the beginning the story pulled me in despite the concept seeming a little out there to me. I know this is fiction but so far Kinsella's books while being fiction in some way still seemed plausible. The main character Lara, who is already racked with her own personal issues, is forced in to attending the funeral of her great aunt Sadie, whom she never knew. Well it is not long before Lara comes to realize that she is the only one who can see Sadie's ghost who decided to drop in on the funeral. It was incredibly easy to get in to this work, but there were times in the middle when I was not sure whether I wanted to keep going, but since there is only one book I have never finished reading (The Time Traveler's Wife) I continued and I am happy to say I did. Towards the end the plot definitely thickens and Lara is forced to turn into a pseudo detective in order to uncover a family secret that will not only allow Sadie to crossover, but will also have a dramatic impact on British art history! Kinsella's Lara and Sadie are great together, Lara is the woman that most of us feel like: stressed, discombobulated, misunderstood, and a loser in love; while Sadie is the woman we all want to be: carefree, outgoing, and not afraid to go after what she wants.

I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a decent chick lit with a little mystery and suspense thrown in. Despite the lag in the middle of the story I would still give it a 4 out of 5 because of the ending. I was so sad when the story was over I must have re-read the last page 5 times!

      I started reading Sophie Kinsella just by accident... I came upon this mobile e-book Can You Keep A Secret? by Sophie kInsella and once over with it it was a terrific read. The so right degree of humor, romance, wit and story put together. I loved her writing style form the very start!

      Afterwards i came to know that she is the author of the renowned Shopaholic series. Read it and found it amazing as well. I had read the review of Twenties Girl in a newspaper magazine, and since then i got my hands over it asap.

      Twenties Girl is not only gripping in terms of story but also in the way Kinsella has maneuvered through the story. The characters are very strong and clear. They absolutely make them understood to the reader. I agree with Styles1920, that Lara is what we are today and Sandie is what we wish to be...and in some fleeting moment of joy and freedom, we all succeed to feel that way too.

      I'd highly recommend this book to those who like books with humorous and witty lines.

      I read this book last summer too. Since the day I found out it's would be launched in July 2009, I was so impatient to buy and read it! And I bought it the very day it was launched in bookstores, because I couldn't wait any longer! :) I really enjoyed this book, it was so much fun. I loved the other books by Sophie Kinsella too, all of them! :)
