Surprise Me: A Novel - Sophie Kinsella

Wow! During my child rearing years, I didn't always have a lot of time to read. So, I only followed a few authors. Sophie Kinsella and Madeleine Wickham (Sophie's pen name) were one of the few. I could not, and did not, miss Shopaholic book. I loved them! Becky Bloomwood was hilarious. I always knew they would make good movies.

However, not since "Twenties Girl" have I not been able to get into a book by this author. I could not connect with the characters, at all. I did so much page skipping during this book that I'm not sure if it's a lie when I say I've read it.

I could not relate to either the husband or the wife. I felt nothing for them. As a matter of fact, they were driving me crazy with their "surprise me" theme. 

I was so looking forward to enjoying this book. Unfortunately, the outcome was very different for me.
