Confessions of a Shopaholic

Finally, I had the time to read "Confessions of a Shopaholic" by Sophie Kinsella. For convenience's sake, I also had the e-book uploaded to my mobile phone which became handy today as I brought my son to his pediatrician and orthopedic doctor. I have just started reading yesterday (currently in Chapter Nine) and will probably finish it over the weekend. So for now, I can only give a part of what I think about the book.

To those who haven't read it yet, the story is about Becky Bloomwood, a sweet girl living the irony of being a financial journalist in deep debt. Her financial troubles are caused by her shopping addiction. Do I see myself in her? Honestly, no. I dread mall sales and, as I have written a couple of times, I only shop when I need something. However, I am quite amazed on how Sophie Kinsella has cleverly described Becky's feelings as she touched her latest find. In the back of my mind, I was thinking "Is there really such a condition as a shopping addiction?" I cannot fully relate but I am so entertained with the play of words that is so noticeable among British authors. Come to think of it, I even enjoyed reading this book more than the Twilight Saga.

I cannot wait to finish the book. I am quite anxious on how her "Make More Money" plan works out as her "Cut Back on Costs" failed. I am also excited on what her new shopping finds will be. Should she be buying diet pills on impulse? I will not be surprised at all by the rate of how often she dines out in expensive restaurants.

This will be my review for now. The rest will have to wait until I have already read the last page of the novel.
