It’s really difficult to read a book in correspondence format. For me it creates a wall – a forced distance. Sort of a play-within-a-play thing.
This is a cute story about perky Kate, her abominable boss, her adorable best friend, and a sort of romance. It’s told through emails, IMs and journal articles. The book gets points for being “different,” but every gimmick ain’t a winner. It felt superficial and silly – which was in keeping with the story. Not a terrible book – just not one in which to sink your teeth.
