    I had attempted to read this book a couple of weeks ago but I wasn't feeling it and gave up after 40 pages Man am I happy that I gave it a second chance This was so dang cute and surprisingly not cheesy despite the plot sounding like a total cheese fest I love how this wasn't just an adorable slow building romance but it also follows Lincoln and his difficulties with growing up and moving on Definitely read this if you are a fan of Rainbow Rowell's other novels or romantic comedies

    December 2015 I love you book Sidenote After my first re read this may not be my favorite Rainbow Rowell book any? I still love it beyond reason but I think she's just matured so much as an author Carry On or Fangirl might overtake it when I get to them I guess we'll seeFebruary 2013 Falling in love with a book is exactly like falling in love with a person In both cases most of the time you just can’t help yourself and what happens during the falling is almost entirely out of your control This is an especially appropriate metaphor to be making when talking about Rainbow Rowell’s delightful little book Attachments which is about a man falling in love in a very inappropriate way This is what I wrote on Goodreads approximately one minute and thirty one seconds after finishing the last page at 2 AM on Saturday night“FUCKING HELL MAN Why is this so GUH and it’s the middle of the night and I’M SO ALONE”I believe that sentence and my five star rating should speak for itself but I would like to elaborate anyway because when you fall in love with something you want to tell everybody about it as loudly and in as many ways as possible Attachments takes place in 1999 just before the turn of the millennium and all the madness of Y2K remember Y2K? It was like practice for the Mayan apocalypse Twenty eight year old perpetual student Lincoln is fresh off his latest graduate degree and is stuck in a rut in basically every area of his life he lives with his mother he has no foreseeable career objectives he can’t even figure out what it is that he might be good at he has no social life to speak of excepting Saturday night games of DD with his lifelong friends and he hasn’t even attempted a romantic relationship since his heart was smashed into pieces eight years before by the girl he thought he’d be with foreverAs the novel opens Lincoln has just taken a job in a Nebraska newspaper’s IT department where he is in charge of the newly developed email security program that monitors employee’s email accounts for inappropriate usage It’s a bit of a creepy job reading other people’s emails and sending them warnings not to mention tedious and boring but it’s at least a job He spends most of his time reading books and doing other non work related activities That is until he accidentally becomes wrapped up in the correspondence of two employees film critic Beth and copyeditor Jennifer who are smart and funny and who little by little begin treating their work email accounts as a personal chat service After about the fourth or fifth flagged conversation Lincoln realizes it’s too late to send them a warning and with not a little guilt begins looking forward to each flagged email especially when it becomes clear to him that not only is he developing feelings for Beth but she has a little crush on him as well The only problem is if he wants to be with her how can he do so knowing that he’s just spent a ridiculous amount of time violating her personal privacy?The novel is a mix between Lincoln’s 3rd person POV and a delightful modern epistolary confection consisting of Jennifer and Beth’s increasingly personal emails to one another Jennifer and Beth are immediately very likeable Their conversations with one another are funny and warm and occasionally sort of surprisingly heart rending That they were so likeable is key because the novel wouldn’t have worked if we as readers were not able to overcome the basic creepiness of Lincoln’s actions We want Lincoln to keep reading about Jennifer and Beth because WE want to keep reading about Jennifer and Beth His actions as Rowell writes them while a bit icky are also completely understandable There’s also the fact that Lincoln himself is a wonderful character and I uickly found myself wishing he was real because I have been looking for him all my life But it’s not only that he’s likeable His struggles as an aimless and confused young adult unsure of what he wanted to do with himself was one I could relate to in very specific ways The sharp wit of Rowell’s dialogue and prose doesn’t hurt either This was also the perfect time period to set this book The transition from tradition to technology at the newspaper echoes Lincoln’s own stumbling transition to adulthoodThis is probably not a book many other readers will give five stars to but it hit all of my personal buttons in all the right ways Like to the point where I was all Rainbow Rowell either get out of my head or be my best friend But even if you don’t fall crazy in love and over identify with it like I did it’s still worth checking out as the perfect example of this kind of romancey character driven novel It’s well written funny has great characters and is overall a super fun read If you like good romantic comedies like When Harry Met Sally and Love Actually just imagine that this is like a book version of that and you’ll have a pretty good idea I am now eagerly anticipating the two books Rainbow Rowell is publishing later this year

    CONTAINS SPOILERS This book would have been sooo much better if not for the pathetic characters Meet LincolnA 29 year old nerd who has multiple degrees lives with his mom plays dungeons and dragons on the weekend is cripplingly awkward and hasn't been able to get over his high school sweetheart breakup for the past NINE years BUT WAIT LINCOLN ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE THISYa I don't get it either Lincoln works as an internet cop He snoops through people's emails and web histories to make sure no one is slacking off during work welcome to the 90'sObviously this is not the funnest job in the world; which is how Lincoln ends up amusing himself by reading the explicit emails between coworkers and friends Beth JenniferJennifer is infinitely terrified of getting pregnant yet she possibly wants to since Mitch her husband wants a baby When she finally does get pregnant she whines about it all the time but you can tell deep down she's happy It's like the girl that complains all the time about this one guy who keeps flirting with her although she will encourage him and is enjoying the attention Just shut up and stop being bitter and lying to yourself Beth on the other hand has been dating an intense and flaky musician for the past 9 years She's dying to get married and have kids However Chris the BF is not interested ue some female whining Lincoln falls for Beth through the emails she sends to Jen although he's never met her We follow the characters through their pathetic lives and how they all get over themselves grow some balls and make life changing decisions finally It's a cute idea which was executed poorly in my opinion The characters did not have to be disgustingly weak I did enjoy Beth and Jen's emails They were witty and amusing I also admire the author's decision of attempting a Chick Lit from a man's POV We have countless of Chick Lit's starring pathetic females In this one we have a pathetic male instead Interesting yet not fulfilling

    My office’s IT support guy has a blonde ponytail and once serenaded me with an Enriue Iglesias song while I was stuck at the copy machine waiting for a fax to go through He was INTO IT He was acting like it was some deep deep rock anthem that TOUCHED HIS SOUL Air acoustic guitar was involved I did what any normal person would do studiously avoided eye contact and went directly back to my desk to email my work best friend about itActual email excerpt Me I just got I will be your hero baby ed by tech support Friend I'm pretty sure HR frowns on thatMe I'm pretty sure they frown on any mention of tremblingFriend But do they know what it feels like loving someone that's in a rush to throw them away? Me Do they know? Do they know? Do they know? Do they?And then we watched this video ten times and laughed until we forgot how much our jobs suck Ahem ANYWAYS As you might guess I thought this book was so freaking charming It's based in the late 90s and told from the perspective of Lincoln who starts off the book leading a pretty pathetic lonely existence He has no social interaction that doesn't involve his mother or Dungeons and Dragons He left a majority of his self esteem sprinkled across the countryside on the long just been dumped by the love of his life bus ride home from college He works the IT security night shift at the local newspaper has no social skills and basically walks around in a beige directionless haze But then Beth and Jennifer's email chains get flagged in his security filters and Lincoln is immediately drawn to their infectious personalities They are lively and funny and Lincoln is charmed Instead of sending them a warning letter as dictated by company policy Lincoln continues to read the emails and uickly becomes invested in their lives unable to resist the bright spot they create in his otherwise tedious mind numbingly boring job Things get even complicated when he finds himself falling for Beth Of course this is a huge invasion of privacy but never underestimate the potential for trouble making and bad decisions with hours of bored free time in an unfulfilling job Just scrolling through my sent box in my email I see subject lines of My Cubicle is Draining My Life Force Data Entry Totally Worth All of That Student Loan Debt Is Liking Three Songs in a Row on the Lite Rock Less Talk Station a Sign of Stockholm Syndrome? so I definitely empathized with some of Lincoln's life and job frustrations But my favorite part of this book by far besides the swoonage of course was Beth and Jennifer's relationship I couldn't blame Lincoln for being so charmed I was charmed They were awesome and a perfect representation of the wonderfulness of BFFs I loved them Oh and I realized if I had a mysteriously hot guy in my office that unbeknownst to me could read my emails he'd have enough for a restraining order within the week I admire Beth and Jennifer's restraint In closing this book is so cute It gave me a happy buzz the whole way through Thank you Maggie for steering me to it And for always emailing me back D

    This romance contemporary was creepy Not cute It felt like I was reading YA not Adult and it was literally one step away from You by Caroline Kepnes The main character is basically described as a “loser” He's 28 plays DD has no social skills lives with his mom and has never gotten over his high school sweetheart BUT WAIT he’s actually tall muscular hot and has multiple degrees RightI honestly don’t understand the hype With a few changes it could have easily been a thrillerhorror book

    i am looking at all the positive ratings and reviews people gave this book and only have one thought which is what the fuckthis is the creepiest and the most disturbing book i've read in years there is the main character Lincoln who falls in love w this woman Beth while reading her e mails to her bestfriend yes it's his job e mails get flagged by the filter and he's supposed to send a warning to the person who wrote something that didn't pass the filter except he doesn't send the warning the emails between Beth and her bff Jennifer are too entertaining apparently later he decides to never send the warning because these girls are so wholesome BUT HE NEVER STOPS READING THE EMAILSbasically he learns a lot of stuff about Beth and falls in love with her what's worse he fucking goes to her office at night when she's not there and creepily sniffs around her cubicle looking at all the photos of ppl close to her fixing her broken computer mouse trying to find information on her then he goes to her boyfriend's concert to look what the boyfriend is like he gets angry when she writes to her bestfriend that she liked some dude when he was Right There he gets extremely angry when she writes to her bestfriend how much she likes her boyfriend HE'S A FUCKING CREEP THAT'S WHO HE IS i honestly wished when everything comes out she'll just go to police and get a restraining order that's not fucking cute and romantic that's downright CREEPYim not even going to talk about the characters but i can say that Lincoln is the dullest fucking main character he's almost 30 he lives with his mom he has like 3 friends who he almost never talks with he plays DD on weekends he really reminds me of all those serial killers before they started killing people situations but he looks like adonis so being a creepy piece of shit is okay i guesssadly there is a happy end i still think it would make sense if the main character killed the girl or something because it reads EXACTLY like serial killer originover “Are you retarded?”“I thought you stopped saying ‘retarded’ and ‘gay’ so that your kids wouldn’t pick it up”“I can’t help it That’s how retarded you sound right now Why would you think that? And why would you refer to it as moving back home? You never moved out” yikes One time he’d had to rebuild a hard drive up in Advertising; it’d taken a few hours and the next day when Lincoln went to put on his sweatshirt it still smelled like Drakkar Noir No wonder my mom thinks I’m gay double yikes Then I see this huge shadow of a person walking toward me and all I can think is “I hope he doesn’t rape me because I’m supposed to wait six weeks before having intercourse” triple yikes They all wanted “smoky eyes”—“you know like Helen Hunt at the Oscars” I’m pretty sure that my sister Gwen and I are the only ones who won’t look like domestic abuse victims in the wedding pictures Y I K E Sfuck everything about this bookanyway this confirms that the only valid book of rainbow rowell is Carry On and it's a harry potter fanfic smh this book is trash and im giving it one star and i would give it less if i could this is not a healthy relationship this is a stalkery creepy shitreading this for the game im participating in
