Rainbow Rowell is the author of Eleanor and Park and Fangirl, both of which I still have yet to read. Attachments is the first book of hers that I have read and I must say that I truly enjoyed it. It’s a light hearted story about friendship and love and office emails. Yep, you read it right, OFFICE EMAILS. That is actually the reason why this book piqued my interest.
I have read a couple of books where the stories were told through mails (Daddy Long Legs) and emails/IMs (Love, Rosie). Both I enjoyed tremendously so as soon as I read the story summary, I bought Attachments. I didn’t notice that it was written by Rainbow Rowell until my cousin told me so.
The story timeline was 1999, when all were frantic about the Y2K bug that was supposed to happen at the turn of the new century. It was also the time when internet and emails were fairly new to the newspaper publishers and traditional journalists.
