"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.
By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.
What would he say . . . ?
Information from Goodreads.com
Now that it's over I'm actually getting teary eyed. I'm actually going to miss them. I hate rating books like this because there is no flash, no wow factor that lets me promise you you're not wasting your time, but for me, this book was great. There are books that you just know are going to be game changers when you read them, you know the big few. This wasn't one of those books, one that would be universally accepted as fantastic. Yet, for me, Rowell's way of writing was a game-changer.
All in all, it wasn't a page turner. But I still wouldn't be surprised to see this on my favorites of the year video.
