Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women don’t get visited by ghosts. Or do they?
When the spirit of Lara’s great-aunt Sadie—a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance—mysteriously appears, she has one request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, because Sadie cannot rest without it.
Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadie’s necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different “twenties” girls learn some surprising truths from and about each other. Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsella’s books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.
I have always felt that Sophie Kinsella's book are ridiculously fun which gives you immense fun and hysterics while reading but if you ever tell the story sound very lame and ridiculous. Its not a bad thing. I have no idea how she takes such an idea and fabrics such a fun tale from it. This is real talent. And her books will make you laugh in such ways and will result in people give you odd looks (I'm talking from experience).
In this book we meet Lara, a hopeless headhunter who's life is in shambles. She's a mess. The book begins with her going to the funeral of her great aunt Sadie who she only once saw and that being when she was a baby. The book starts at such a funny note. It guarantees that its going to be good. Then Lara sees a ghost. Namely a ghost of her great aunt Sadie. And Sadie is well....
Not much like a ghost.
She bossy and screams and pestering and opinionated. She gave me the hysterics. I couldn't stop laughing when she goes and yells at people to do something. And boy is she good. Shes also very lively and free spirited. She has vivid and crazy ideas and she makes you do what she wants you to do. Shes spontaneous, bubbly and adamant as hell. Quite a ghost huh?
Lara is not like Sadie. Lara is a softie. She's still hung up on her ex and refuses to move on or admit he doesn't love her. Lara is very weak willed. She easily does whatever Sadie yells at her to do. She doesn't realize she has the upper hand. She doesn't take the upper hand. Her best friend blatantly uses her and she falls for it and doesn't take any action. But Lara is determined. She has ways and she manages to do it however. Not bad ways. Just a different way.
What makes this book all the more fun is the mystery. There is not quite a mystery in the starting but as Lara discovers stuff it gets so much fun. The book is a whirlwind. Its extremely fun. It has a funny twist. And yes there is a very cute guy. And the way she meets the guy will blow your mind. Sadie will make you laugh till you cry. Lara's actions will make you tut tut a lot.
I felt this book was an amazing read and i don't regret it. I'd recommend it to anyone in fact I already convinced a friend to read it and so she is. I don't think everybody would like it but I'd say if you're a YA and teen fiction and comedy fan this is your cup of tea. Its a great way to chillax and vent out some air. In fact I'm going to tell Raven to read it too. (Read it R).
This review is slightly shorter than my usual but thats not because I'm not so very enthusiastic about it. My keyboard is actually giving me a hard time. And I have to be some where.
So till then.
P.S. For you to look forward for something- Looking for Alaska, John Green is coming up.
