My Thoughts On Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Posted on

Seven years ago, Lincoln had his heart broken by his high-school sweetheart.  Since that time, he has been in and out of schools and majors and now finds himself living with his Mom, working the night shift, reading employees email in order to ensure they are not violating company policy.

It is in this capacity that he reads emails between Beth & Jennifer.  He is fascinated by Beth’s quick wit and kindness, and he looks forward to reading her emails every night.  But, fascination quickly turns into love, made even more complicated when she starts writing about him.  How does he arrange a meeting?  And should he confess what he’s been doing?

Attachments is an interesting book.  I enjoyed reading Beth & Jennifer’s emails as much as Lincoln!  But, there were some things that I did not like about this book.  I do not like stories about wasted time, and Lincoln’s seven year heartache is a very big waste of time.  You want to smack him and tell him to get over it.  And, I am not a fan of the theater scene at the end.  It seems highly unlikely and a little creepy.  All in all, I did not form an attachment to Attachments.
