Book Review: Undomestic Goddess

So I just finished "Undomestic Goddess" by Sophie Kinsella.

One of the last times I visited with my sister she gave me this book.  To quote her, "This book is SOOOO good you just have to read it!"  I looked at it and she told me this was the same author of the Shopaholic series - more books I have not read.  I do love the movie (I know nothing even similar - according to my sister).  At the same time she gave me another book, same author, "Can You Keep a Secret?"  Which was AMAZING!  So I was not scared to pick up "The Undomestic Goddess."

"The Undomestic Goddess" is about Samantha Sweeting, high-powered attorney at one of London's top law firms.  Things happen, Samantha meets different people and finds a whole life she never knew existed.  I don't want to give you too much information because the book is just that good!

Sophie Kinsella's character development is great.  Through out the book there were so many places where I could actually see in my mind what Samantha was doing, or what she was looking at.  Now this is big for me, because many times I don't think in pictures - I have a hard time "seeing" what people are describing.

One thing that I noticed between the two books was that in "The Undomestic Goddess" more English words were used than in "Can You Keep a Secret?"  It was not difficult to stay with the flow of the story though.  But like "Can You Keep a Secret?"  I got to a point when I could not put the book down.  I finished this book in less than a week, with the bulk of it in one evening.  (I only get time to read once Kaitlyn's in bed.)

I do want it known, these are my own opinions - I was not asked to review this book, nor was I compensated in any way.  These are also my honest opinions. 

  I suggest getting both!  You will not be disappointed.  I wasn't.
