"Attachments" takes us back to 1999 where the internet and email were still a novelty and shows us a beautiful lovestory that is....pretty onesided when you come to think of it. The book is split in two parts: one part is the story of Lincoln who works the nightshift in IT at a newspaper in Nebraska and his problems in life and love and his falling in love with a girl he never met. The other part is the mails Beth and Jennifer write each other during work. Their problems, their relationships, their lives. Eventually these two parts become one. Both parts of the book are fun to read and you will always want to know what will happen next. You will live with the characters, love and suffer with them and be completly drawn in. Rainbow Rowell's book "Attachments" is a book that I would gladly recommend to all of my friends and family and to everybody who loves a good lovestory.
From the award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wayward Son, Fangirl, Carry On, and Landline comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel about an office romance that blossoms one email at a time....
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now—reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be “internet security officer,” he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers—not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. He can't help being entertained, and captivated, by their stories. But by the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he even say...?
