I read Sophie Kinsella's The Undomestic Goddess in 2 days (technically just 2 nights).
I've always liked reading Sophie Kinsella since her books are always light hearted and very easy to read. I've read the whole Shopaholic Series (even Shopaholic and Sister) and Can You Keep a Secret. I was waiting for the time that The Undomestic Goddess goes into paperback before I finally get a copy.
The book was very easy to read. There were no laugh out moments as there had been in Can You Keep a Secret. However, I can very much relate to Samantha Sweeting's character. I am an email addict and my mobile phone is permanently attached to my hip. I don't have a blackberry, but I have push email. Basically, like Samantha, I think my world revolves around my job. The only thing where we're different, is that, I have found my Nathaniel even without losing my job.
Anyway, for me the story is not really something to be excited about. If you have a couple of hours to sit down and read, it might be ok to pour sometime into it. I still think that Can You Keep a Secret is still the best Kinsella book I've read.
I'm halfway through Memoirs of a Geisha. This book I find so hard to put down. I loved books by Amy Tan because they explore the Asian culture. And I am loving this book because it brings me to explore Old Japan.
