Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

Confessions of a ShopaholicFor the first 100 pages of this novel I was laughing out loud, shaking my head in disbelief and cringing at Becky's antics. By page 300 I was still laughing, shaking my head and cringing but with much less enthusiasm. It's just after a while, this character can get a little tedious.

The scary part is that as much as I hate shopping for clothes, I can see a little of myself in Becky. I certainly have the book-buying compulsion! That is part of the charm of this character though, in her craziness, in her extremities, she is still relatable to some degree. Although we don't want to BE Becky, we can admit quietly that we can sometimes be LIKE Becky.

Like me, you might spend a great deal of the book hoping for some miraculous cure to Becky's addiction. All I can say is, don't hold your breath. Shopping is seriously like crack to this woman!

This isn't the best book I've ever read but it was a lot of fun. I am really looking forward to the movie...I'm hoping it'll be a great chick-flicks to enjoy with friends.
