Book Review: Twenties Girl
My husband picked up this book as a gift for me. Well, it sat on my bookshelf for a good while, simply because I didn't really think it was a good read. I had read other books by Sophie Kinsella , but from the title, I got the idea that this was some kind of light chick lit book about a women in her twenties, and I didn't feel too thrilled about it.
Well, one day I started reading it anyway, and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it was full of wit, entertaining and actually a very good reading experience! And, Twenties Girl has nothing to do with being in your twenties, but living in the 1920's!
It has an unrealistic side to it, one that I just had to accept, (like I accept the magic in Harry Potter) and from there on, I had a blast reading it! A mystery, a secret lies underneath, one that kept me reading, but I had fun while doing so.
If I didn't feel that way, I wouldn't be writing about it. I have no patience with books that don't catch me. Sometimes I still finish them, but I wouldn't bother writing about them.
So, pick up Twenties Girl, tune in to Charleston dance music, flapper dresses, pearl necklaces and feather hair bands!
