I’ve Got Your Number is a funny and quirky book. This book had a great pace, had me constantly guessing if Kinsella was going to do something typical or unique (and over half the time it was awesome and unique). I found myself either laughing out loud or on pins and needles getting to what was going to happen next while my mind raced with what I thought should happen. It was also fun to read a book that was able to successfully incorporate today’s technology world of communication via texting and emails and meld them into a fairy tale of sorts. Or as the movie Friends with Benefits calls it: @ftale. Poppy and Sam were definitely the couple for the job.
I have read Sophie Kinsella before and besides her Shop-a-holic series have enjoyed her stories. There were times in the past I found myself getting frustrated or annoyed with the main character in the books. In I’ve Got Your Number, this was not a problem. I actually felt that Kinsella loved this story and her main and side characters to build this romantic comedy. If you are looking for a story that is outrageous, laugh out loud, and touches the heart I would definitely recommend this novel. For fans of Sophie Kinsella, I would say, “She’s back.”
