I was carefully watching the ring as it was passed round the table. I mean, who isn't absolutely, life-on-the-line dependent on their cell phone? I feel quite sorry for this guy. I only wish we got I almost feel guilty for saying this, but I loved this book! It took me a bit to get used to the narrator, but she grew on me. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Poppy is meddlesome, funny and smart. Books in pdf and other formats are very convenient to read. He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done.
Best part of story, including ending: It was a light-hearted, fun read. When a handsome stranger in a coffee shop asks her to watch his laptop for a moment, she not only agrees - she ends up saving it from certain disaster. He gets upset at her criticism. It felt too much like the Shopaholic Series. It was snatched from her by a hoodie guy what a very poor girl. She ends up going to an event because Sam didn't want to go, thinking she can get away with it because Sam is in Germany, but she nearly dies of shock when she sees him there.
Unexpectedly, Sam is the one who didn't impress me. I totally connect with Poppy Wyatt!! He leaves a message about someone named Scottie and how what he is going to do won't leave a trace. I realize that's part of reality, but I still want something. Take a chance you can't go wrong with this one. We had bought plane tickets and made reservations; everything was all set to go.
Since I have this book in an electronic form it required constant going back and forth, so I stopped reading them altogether. Coming back from a thoroughly ruinous sales trip to Glasgow, the plane she is on encounters some air turbulence, and she ends up spilling her guts to the handsome American sitting next to her. Katie's life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle - from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she's trying to negotiate. Which scene was your favorite? When Poppy is left alone, she is reminded of an e-mail she had sent to Sam's father in reply to his request to have a reunion with his son. When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight -- telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass. Poppy has some other complications, though.
It has to be here, it has to be. Welcome to chick-lit 101 with all important footnotes! You could even say they stood out glaringly. I feel like Sophie is amazing at writing characters that are just so darn loveable, you can't help but root for them. Footnotes in a Sophie Kinsella book! She and Sam grew on me. She finds out that she is being cheated on in the end of the book.
As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls, and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents, she soon realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Well, perfect except that the phone's owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn't agree. The main character lies, cheats, steals, and deceives throughout the entire book. It is only when Poppy has left the building that she pulls out a note she had been keeping of all the strange caller's messages: about someone named Scottie having done the surgery and left no trace.
I hurry back to the circular table we were sitting at this after¬noon and crawl underneath, patting the carpet yet again. Poppy receives a call from an unknown number from someone. Would you think, it's mine now, finders keepers? The plot and the situations are often ridiculous and unbelievable, full of crazy coincidences and misunderstandings, the heroines tragically scattered and lost in every way, yet I still love them. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. The narrator sounded like a bad, low-class reader with a British accent.
One April evening, Maggie relishes her last weeks of normalcy before the birth of her first child, while Roxanne breezes through between glamorous foreign assignments. Then she hears another beep: it's a message from Sam, sending her a heart icon. It was only then that I realized how amazingly caring and sensitive Sam really is. Sam sees her and comes to her, asking why she is back. I loved the ending and how it's not a typical fairytale riding-off-into-the-sunset-and-then-they-live-happily-ever-after-and-have-twenty-kids-who-grow-up-to-be-super-attractive-blah-blah-blah ending, but you can create your own idea of what happens after the last page. The hotel informs Poppy that someone found the ring but it has gone missing again because it is not in any of their safes. But somehow this book is still utterly addictive and sucks you in… as does the narrator, who I initially found grating but who I sort of fell in love with.
