Read in July, 2010
I read this book a while ago, when it had just come out. I bought it because there was an offer at the local supermarket and it looked like a mushy love story from the front cover and the blurb. I was reading a lot of Sophie Kinsella-esque books at the time and was looking for another.
I did enjoy the book at the time – I didn't struggle through it, yet it was by no means the best book I have ever read. I never understood the huge hype that surrounded the novel when the film came out and I suppose never will. Any ideas? Did people genuinely enjoy the novel THAT much or was it just because it was made into a major Hollywood film?
