Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

Twenties Girl
Sophie Kinsella
Bantam Press

This book should REALLY be in the movies! =)

As expected, Sophie Kinsella never fails to satisfy her readers. The story is about a dead great aunt who came hunting for her favourite necklace by haunting her niece. Well, Sadie never intended to haunt her niece but Lara happens to be the only one she could communicate directly with. With such, she pestered Lara to delay her cremation and search for the necklace. Lara had a hard time coping with her already breaking apart life. Having a ghost distracting her all the time is definitely not helping.

Lara and Sadie became friends along the way. They helped and taught each other a lot of things. Well, Sadie taught Lara a lot of things from the twenties. She helped Lara opened eyes and heart to see that her ex-boyfriend is not so into her. Lara ended up being a successful head hunter and own her own company. Apart from that, she found her true love. As for Sadie, Lara helped her to discover truth about her love back in the yesteryears.

I believe I've spilled too much details here. All I want to say is this book should be in the blockbuster. I can see a very pale actress acting Sadie running around to annoy Lara. Best of all, the scenes will be filled with London views. :)

p/s: Woohoo! I got this book at 30% discount in MPH just a day before the offer expires. Woohoo! I managed to finish reading this despite the crazy working hours and no-life days. ;) Best of all, I get to share a review and update my blog!!!!

I love Kinsella's books! I especially can't wait to get my hands on this one.

If you love Kinsella, you'll also love a new book called 'Knickles and Dimes'. It has hilarious characters and a really great story. I'd recommend it!

Anyway, thanks for the review : )

From your review, yes I agree that this book should be turned into a movie, which I hope they should start making right now!

Is it a humorous book? I can't wait to get a copy of it. :)
