The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic

The Secret Dreamworld
of a Shopaholic
By Sophie Kinsella

About the book
Meet Rebecca Bloomwood. She's a journalist. She spends her working life telling others how to manage their money. She spends her leisure time... shopping.

Retail therapy in the answer to all her problems. She knows she should shop, but she can't. She tries cutting back, she tries making more money. But neither seems to work. The stories she concocts become more and more dramatic as she tries to untangle her increasingly dire financial difficulties. Her only comfort is to buy herself something - just a little something...

Can Becky ever escape from this dream world, find true love and regain the use of her switch card ?

My view
This is the first book i read by Sophie Kinsella and i loved it. I read it in two days and i couldn't put it down. Rebecca Bloomwood is a great character. We all have a bit of Rebecca Bloomwood in us or we know someone like her. I did get some weird looks on the train when i starting bursting into laughter! That's just a sign of what a great book it is. I am glad i read the book before i saw the film, as the film didn't compare to the book.
