Secrets from her boyfriend: As in Barbie and Ken. Secrets from her mother: I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is.
Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger. Of course I do. Everyone has a few secrets. Not the-president-is-planning-to-bomb-Japan-and-only-Will-Smith-can-save-the-world type secrets. Just normal, everyday little secrets. I weigh 9 stone 3. Not 8 stone 3, like my boyfriend Connor thinks. Although in my defence, I was planning to go on a diet when I told him that.
And to be fair, it is only one number different. When my colleague Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. Which is pretty much every day. Obviously I know these things.
The important thing is to keep confident and businesslike. I can do this. She's a "self-made career girl" and a future marketing executive. All in her head of course. So it's no wonder she gets herself into such tangles. She lives in her head! I think everyone knows people like this and can't help laughing at them when they get into trouble. I love the fact that she gets herself into constant binds, but good things invariably end up happening to her in the end.
I think we all like a lovable loser, don't we? Not much I can say about the hero, just another closed-mouth guy, but he did come through in the end. He eventually learns that communicating with someone you are interested in is the key to trust and a lasting relationship.
A couple of snarky characters, and an imbecile ex-boyfriend made for good story telling. Only wish the ending was longer. Lots of buildup and ends in a few pages, and epilogue was not informative enough. Nevertheless, I was completely hooked on this book, and was immensely entertained. This story was so funny and so far-fetched that I could actually imagine it happening to me.
I will never ever again spill my guts to a perfect stranger on an airplane no matter where I am going or under what circumstances. Very wise View 1 comment. Jul 15, Cecily rated it did not like it Shelves: My first - and almost certainly last - foray into chick lit. Very shallow, contrived and implausible, albeit in a self-conscious "ironic"? Although the "plot" may excuse the improbable co-incidences, there is no justification for the ludicrously artificial dialogue.
I find all the "poor fluffy little me struggling to bluff it in the big bad grown up world" nauseating. Not as funny as it thinks because the humour, such as it is, is entirely reliant on very cliched stereotypes. If it were w My first - and almost certainly last - foray into chick lit. If it were written by a man, people would be outraged at how sexist it is.
Even if Kinsella was once ahead of the game by writing in this way, its startling unoriginality is just another annoyance. I have a stack of Sophie Kinsella books I'm working my way through, which might be the greatest choice I've made so far this year.
I skimmed Confessions of a Shopaholic a few years ago before I saw the movie but I'm probably going to go back and read it now because the characters in this book had such real voices.
Like I might not have the same personality as Emma, but I could still relate to her just because she was so entertaining and lika I have a stack of Sophie Kinsella books I'm working my way through, which might be the greatest choice I've made so far this year.
Like I might not have the same personality as Emma, but I could still relate to her just because she was so entertaining and likable. Basically, Emma drinks a bit too much on a flight with turbulence and ends up spilling all of her secrets in a panicked rush to the guy sitting next to her So she goes back to her boring boyfriend and normal life, but then that guy shows up at her work. Turns out he owns her company and is some multi-billionaire. The story's predictable and a bit on the simple side, but gets really funny.
The side characters like Emma's roommates and embarrassing family made it so much better, too. So I don't care how formulaic this was because it was so much fun! I'd probably give it 4. Then I totally would. View all 11 comments.
I swear the moment I was done with this book I was just so.. Fr the first time,in my history of reading books. I'm mean seriously you guys, I wish I could say I loved this as much as I enjoyed this author's I've Got Your Number but sadly this didn't even score half of it's rating View all 35 comments.
Sep 28, Trina Between Chapters rated it really liked it Shelves: This was SO enjoyable to me! It delivered on the premise. I felt like the meme of eating popcorn while reveling in the drama. This was published in and this type of 'humor' was unfortunately part of that time.
Full disclosure - I'm straight so don't take only my word on if this is truly harmful, but it did make me want to facepalm and I think I would have rated this higher without it. This was really cute and funny! A great lighthearted read. Review to come! First of all thank you, Jasprit, for insisting I read this one.
A couple of days ago I was sick and in bed all day. I had just finished another book and was wondering which book to start next.
I saw this on my Nook and remembered you said it's her best book. This book really made me feel better when I was under the weather. Emma is 25 and has been through many jobs.
She has had a job in marketing for over a year now, and although she does okay, she's not exactly moving up the corporate ladder.
Sh First of all thank you, Jasprit, for insisting I read this one. She lives with her bff Lissy and has a boyfriend that she thinks is almost too cute and perfect. One day on a terrifying plane crash she turns to the man next to her and starts blabbering every random secret she has to the stranger next to her. She tells him everything including several things that could get her in trouble at work. A few days later when this stranger walks in her workplace and she's made aware that he is the founder of her company she is mortified.
Can he keep her secrets? I've gotten to the point where I feel like if you have reviewed one Sophie Kinsella book you have reviewed them all. The same things always apply. Laugh out loud humor, a loveable but usually quite clueless heroine, some barely there romance, and a picture perfect ending. They also usually include a subtle message from which the character learns something important about life. The fact that you know what you're getting when you go into one of her books can be a good thing or a bad thing.
For me I like it. I know what to expect and she never lets me down. I have read a few of her singles, but still haven't gotten to the Shopaholic series, so don't hold me to that.
My only complaint and reason for giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the predictability. See how I said it could go both ways? I like knowing what to expect, but I would also like a bit of surprise with the ending. This one had a formula that seemed so similar to "I've got Your Number" in regards to the boyfriend factor. Why bother giving the heroines a boyfriend at the start of the book?
We always know how that's going to end. I know Sophie Kinsella has it in her to write something more original and unique for the chick-lit genre and when she does that's when I will give her my 5 stars. Fans of Kinsella will not be disappointed with this one, and I agree with Jasprit. This is her best that I've read so far.
The heroine Emma blurted out every little detail of her life to some random guy sitting next to her just because the plane she was on was going thro 2. The heroine Emma blurted out every little detail of her life to some random guy sitting next to her just because the plane she was on was going through some turbulence.
Naturally, the random guy turned out to be her sexy, bazillionaire boss who used her secrets against her the first chance he got never mind professionalism and good work ethic. Nothing else was important, career and family didn't matter, it was all about landing a man. That was the ultimate achievement.
She was seriously deluded. Not once did he tell her he loved her and there was nothing in his actions that suggested he was.
They'd had two dates and one night of sex and that somehow made Emma think Jack was in love with her. What a stupid cow. Why are all of Kinsella's heroines such doormats? Emma was on a whole other level of doormat, she just smiled and kept her mouth shut whenever her family or someone else bitched at her. It was beyond infuriating to read the POV of someone who was so unable to stand up for themselves.
They saved all that for their niece Kerry , and treated her better than their own daughter. Emma was the one who needed love and emotional support, not Kerry. When her jerk parents finally realised how they'd been favouring Kerry over their only child for years, all they did was give a lame apology and act mildly remorseful.
And silly cow Emma immediately accepted their apology and was over the top grateful for them finally acting like half decent parents. Yea, as fucking if. A halfhearted apology doesn't erase years of rubbish parenting, Emma's reaction was so unrealistic. In reality she would have still been hurt and bitter about how unloved she'd felt growing up, I didn't expect her to rant and rage at them but some real emotions would have been appreciated.
Instead she went on like they were the best parents in the world, and magically forgot their douchey behaviour after a sentence or two of mild remorse.
Yea right. The way Jack talked about him, it was like they had an epic love affair or something. And then him acting like it was unintentional was beyond ridiculous, he revealed every little thing about her and then he was all 'duh, it was an accident.
I'm sowwy. They were both such idiots. A ridiculous read, but it was still quite funny and entertaining in a cheesy, predictable, cliched, silly sort of way. View all 19 comments. This book was hilarious. The basic idea is, imagine what would happen if in a moment of panic you were to spill all your darkest secrets to a perfect stranger and of course that stranger was extremely attractive and turned out to be a new big shot at your company, genius uh? When Emma spills it all out it makes you want to cover your eyes with your hands and tell her: The fun, as always with Kinsella standalone novels, is guaranteed and the romance is just witty and cute.
In the final retribution moment I was yeah! I actually pictured myself kicking her in the derriere a couple of times!! View all 3 comments. Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner! Beware spoilers ahead! Naturally I went through all of her books and tried to decide which one to read.
I am happy to say that I loved it! Emma has gone to represent her company Panther Cooperation in a meeting. As per Kinsella books the meeting turns into a disaster whilst Emma spilling a product on one of the other company's worker. Emma goes back in a bad mood a Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner!
Emma goes back in a bad mood and has quite a bit to drink. The plane she is on experiences turbulence. Out of panic and she's drunk Emma tells all her secrets to another passenger.
There are numbers for the chapters. As well as emails and notes. I related to a lot of Emma's work woes. It's really hard to prove yourself in a workplace that doesn't appreciate you.
Emma's co-workers like Artemis reminded me off some of my co-workers. There's always that one person that's just fake. On the bright side Katie was fun to read about! She was actually really sweet and a good friend to Emma. Emma lived in an apartment with two flatmates. Lissy and Jemima. Lissy has been Emma's best friend since they were 7. There friendship was absolutely adorable! I'm a bit conflicted about Jemima. She definitely thought she was helping. But Jemima's suggestions were terrible.
And didn't really make sense. I do have to give Jemima props for trying to help. Emma feels that she's disappointed her parents. Her cousin Kerry always tries and succeeds to one up Emma. Nev Kerry's husband also pokes at Emma about her career changes. Emma is able to sort everything out with her family. Emma begins dating a co-worker named Connor. Connor works in another division at Panther Cooperation. During the plane ride Emma realizes that she doesn't really have feelings for Connor anymore.
Emma is in denial about this. She breaks up with him much later on. I personally found Connor to be annoying! Emma asks Connor to keep their break-up to himself for the time being. Seeing as they work together. Instead at a party while drunk announces their break-up. Their office blames the whole situation on Emma as she is the one to dump him.
And he doesn't even apologize! It didn't help that the co-workers didn't bother to see it from Emma' point of view. Connor also tries multiple times to confront Emma about who she is dating.
He acts like a martyr and always has a way of patronizing Emma. I also found him to be totally inconsiderate. To try and look professional during a staff meeting Connor shuts down Emma's point.
Just because Jack Harper was present. I honestly don't understand why Emma blamed herself for everything. Connor has a brain too. He can realize himself that not all women keep secrets. As far as Emma's secrets go I didn't find them that bad. Some of them were really dumb while the others hilarious! What was troubling is how easy it was for Emma to lie. And she did so constantly. Emma did develop and started actually admitting the truth.
She even started to stand up for herself! Emma stood up to Kerry and Paul her boss. I especially liked how she handled Paul. And in the end it paid off as she got promoted. I really liked Emma and Jack's relationship!
When Jack appears in at the Panther Cooperation, he spends quite a bit of time poking fun at Emma's secrets. It was honestly so assuming!
Through their relationship they grew. Jack learned to become more open. And Emma learned to stand up for herself and be honest. They made a really good couple. Also Jack's actually American. I didn't have any problems. Expect for Connor but I think it was well handled.
And blissfully she broke up with him early enough.
I highly recommend it. Bien bonito. De los que te entretienen y te hacen pasar muy buen rato.
