I’ve got your number by Sophie Kinsella

A novel by Sophie Kinsella I wanted to read was/is “Remember me?” as its synopsis seems very intriguing but I still couldn’t but never mind as I got a pleasant chance to read “I’ve got your number by Sophie Kinsella”.

In a first glance I was doubtful about finishing it soon as it’s a large book with 381 pages. Generally you can find many insignificant things in long novels but believe me, in this book, not a single page was boring.

Poppy Wyatt, 29, is a physiotherapist. Always eager to help anyone (Even that ‘anyone’ is a paid worker), she is ready to marry Magnus Tavish, a wealthy guy hailing from an academic family (Poppy thinks they are from different league as they publish journals and all that)

She loses a huge emerald engagement ring which belongs to Tavish family for three generations, on the very same day when she is going to meet her future in-laws and she is searching it frantically. To add more terror to her already panicking mind, her phone has been snatched. Now what was she going to do? She badly needs a phone to get in touch with the hotel staffs in case they try to give her some information about the ring.

Out of a sudden, she finds a mobile in a bin (She thinks anything in the bin is public property) and so... now… she has a phone. But it’s not that easy. Owner of the phone, stoical yet curt, Sam Roxton wants his phone back. But she can’t (As she already has distributed her new number everywhere). Finally they settle to share the phone and that’s how they stay connected.

This book tells all about how they interact (As Poppy gets some strange messages), help each other, somehow become friends and change (a little) each other, come closer and perhaps fall for each other. Wait! What about that Magnus Tavish (Poppy’s fiancée)? For that you’ll have to read the novel (And trust me, you won’t regret that)

I must say Sophie Kinsella is an author with a very entertaining, humorous and witty style of writing. I liked the new and unique storyline. It’s basically a sweet love story of Poppy and Sam (without saying “I Love You” even for once). I so liked the very well crafted characters of Poppy Waytt and Sam Roxton. The humour in this novel is naturally amusing. I found myself laughing many a times while reading the book, especially in the first half. The texting sessions between Sam and Poppy are very interesting.

The footnotes were the only thing I did not like in the book. But doesn’t matter.

Overall, for me, it was a very entertaining, engrossing delightful read! Highly recommended for all the girls/women who like contemporary women/romance fiction.

  2. Sounds interesting!...And I would surely love to read books that has a bits of humor...Thanks for the review Tarang!

  3. I've never read one of her books. Probably snobby of me, don't you think? I probably need to just give it a try when I need a beach read or something.
