The New Stuff

Confessions of a Shopaholic: The Book

Well, I think a must read book for women who enjoy reading chick-lit or light flicks :-). And here is why:
  • If you are a female born with normal genes & hormones, I will assume you have the code of “I love shopping” embedded somewhere within your DNA. Yeah, I know the level of coding can actually vary from women to women but it’s definitely there in all the women at least I know since childhood. And if you are one of those normal women with this “shopping” thing in your DNA, you’ll definitely like this book or rather I shall say you’ll love this book!
  • This book is very light, witty & really a fun read.
  • The journey of main protagonist “Rebecca Bloomwood” whose life is in a mess because of her obsession towards shopping is interesting enough to hold your attention till the end of the book. Not even once while reading I felt bored of it.
  • I have not watched the movie yet but the writing style of the book is so vivid that you actually feel you are watching a movie.
  • It definitely leaves you a smile on your face & it’s one of those books which you would like to finish asap.
So, next time when you’re looking for a light casual read, do try it out please.

Other details of the book:
Author: Sophie Kinsella
Price: Rs. 261/- (I bought in from landmark 2 weeks back)
Special Note: Statutory Warning - This book is a strict NO for men! I‘m sure most of the men would not like to try anything which is even remotely related to shopping :-)

Excuse me..the special note was too generic.I for one love splurging money on useless things under the pretext of shopping,especially when i am depressed..the sight of my credit card being swiped gives a good high and makes me fight depression :)..will check the movie don't think i have patience to read a chick flick book.

Hmmm..cool review!

Picked Zama's 'Marriage bureau for rich people' from Sapna's y'day. See a plain good review @ Smi's blog made me buy that! :O

How very true of the 'I love shopping' code being merged in our DNA. Lol :D

The movie sucked!
Maybe the book will rock.

Smita said...

I simply love this book...

In fact I think about Becky and I laugh :D The book is adorable & something which I could relate to :D

In fact me & WIAN describe our shopping by saying 'I did a Becky today :D'

The movie is saved in my lappy but somehow I feel that the movie can no matter be better than the book...

Do read rest of the series...equally hilarious they are, specially the letters she writes to her banker :D

Isn't Becky adorable???

Gosh! I think I'll read it again ;-)

@ Shay I hope u love the book :)

And I am suggesting 'The Zoya Factor' by Anuja Chauhan. I don't pick up chick flicks but this one fooled me since it flaunts its cricket connexions.

One enjoyable activity is to match the characters with real people.
