Book Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

14.8.14

In 1999 when the internet was beginning to grow and becoming part of every body's life and for Lincoln it was the place that changed his life as he knew it. He was working as an IT guy in an office where his responsibility was to monitor e-mails of the employees. A job that was isolated for the most part and uninteresting. Apart from e-mails between Jennifer and Beth who sent e-mails back and forth everyday about their lives and distracting each other from work. The e-mails were a welcoming part of his day and he then begins to fall in love with one of them.

It is insightful to read a story about love that is felt through only an online interaction. Especially in this modern digital age where it is becoming far more common. It is another avenue to explore and meet new people that I think is sometimes seen as weird or unusual. The world is evolving and as technology develops so does the way we interact with each other. Just like the characters in Attachments, who grew and changed into better versions of themselves. I personally felt I could relate to Lincoln, Beth and Jennifer in different way and I'm sure everyone can identify with a quality in one of them, especially if you're in your twenties. I wanted to see where they went, in the same way my own pages turn in my life. And reminds us that it is okay to love whoever we want no matter how they enter our lives. Definitely worth reading if you enjoy contemporary novels.
