I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella — book review

Ive-got-your-number-PB-REI (1).jpgMy favourite “guilty pleasure” read. I say guilty because there is a lot that could be criticised about a book such as this. Yet, I’m always able to fully immerse myself in Poppy’s misadventures so much so that I feel 100% invested in her story.
Kinsella’s sense of humour is as per usual one of the immediate ‘hooks’ of her novels. Poppy’s ‘ring-crisis’ and ‘phone-crisis’ offer plenty of amusing and entertaining scenes. There are also an abundance of awkward moments, often involving Poppy’s interactions with her future in-laws, as well as a series of mishaps and misunderstandings. Another thing that I love about this book is that the connection and intimacy between Sam and Poppy is caused by their ‘mutual’ phone…
Although Poppy repeatedly intervenes in Sam’s work (and private) life she is called out on her ‘fix you’ behaviour (and is served a taste of her own medicine when she finds herself under Sam’s scrutiny).
This is a book that always cheers me up. It has humour, romance, and makes for the perfect ‘pick me up’ read.
