I would love if this turns into a new series cause I loved these characters.
Please make this one into a movie!!
This one compares with the Shopaholic series. Finally. Bubbly funny, upbeat, anchored in reality, I could not stop listening. I have fallen asleep on it (that’s how far I took it) and got a bit sad when it ended, you do tend to finish a book a lot faster when you just have to listen to it. I saw comments about the footnotes being annoying: if you get the audio book (which is read to perfection- I listened to hundreds so I know) Jayne Entwistle reads them so cutely, I actually loved the idea.
The ending was not extraordinary but not bad either. This is not a book that will enrich your vocabulary, make you feel smarter or remember some essential truth that would guide your life choices, but it is a super amusing story that will make you feel lighter and happier. You will remember that everything can change any time and everything can get infinitely worse or better in a matter of minutes.
I’ve Got Your Number is a light, fun read incorporating technology in an interesting way. I liked that the flaky, snoopy, insecure Poppy has more depth, backbone, and morality than first appears. We see a woman who is totally intimidated by people become a stronger person willing to stand up for what’s right. Sam’s communications with Poppy also begin to reveal a different side than the blunt, humorless man she thought he was.
Poppy’s transformation was definitely welcome, as a whole book of ditzy behavior would have worn thin. As it was, the 100+ footnotes Poppy inserted in the tale became so annoying that I stopped reading them. Also, many of the other characters are two-dimensional. On the upside, though, the story had me laughing out loud in places. Those who want a quick, light, fun read will enjoy this novel, especially if you like footnotes.
I was quite entertained and how she wrote it made me kept reading until 3am. I just couldn't put the book down. I liked Poppy's character a lot - funny, silly, non-confrontational, and selfless. I loved how you could make her do anything she could to help out people she doesn't even know.
"I have no idea what to say next. I don't speak Japanese, I don't know anything about Japanese business or Japanese culture. Apart from sushi. But I can't exactly go up to him and say "Sushi!" out of the blue. It would be like going up to a top American businessman and saying "T-bone steak!"
I also found Sam quite likable. I liked how he wasn't perfect or someone who'd sweep you off your feet right from the start. I liked how he was always there, but never implied he wanted anything more (probably trying not to confuse Poppy knowing that she's engaged or he didn't realize he wanted her until the last few chapters, I don't know). I simply loved their too-friendly-but-not-flirty relationship.
"Thanks. Good save. That was sharp of you. Are you always this sharp?"
Yeah right. I'm so sharp, the only Scrabble word I can come up with is PIG.
You already crossed that line, he texted back. What's the difference? And then he added, Flattered you thought I was a genius.
The ending was very well put together, too.Read more ›
Until I read this one.
This is not my first Sophie Kinsella novel. When I was a pre-teen, I randomly read Shopaholic and Sister. A couple of weeks ago or so, I read Can You Keep A Secret? It was okay. Not great. I failed to see what was so special about it. But I've Got Your Number got very good reviews, and I really wanted to experiment a little outside of teenage fiction. I AM SO GLAD I BOUGHT THIS BOOK. The romance and chemistry between Sam and Poppy is so sweet and romantic. I loved it. Sam is a really great guy and I found him to have a perfect balance of fantastic qualities and flaws. Poppy is also a great heroine. Her meddling got a little annoying, but I get the impression that all of Sophie Kinsella's heroines are a bit flighty and, well, dim at times. I liked Poppy quite a bit. She's a nice, kind-hearted girl who just wants to be liked and to help others.
So why is this book so fantastic? it has humour (I literally lol'd in one scene about a mistake about a certain gift,) romance, and...A MYSTERY TO SOLVE! Yep, there is a crime in this book that Sam and Poppy must crack in order to save Sam's boss. No, this is NOT a mystery novel, but this mystery was wonderfully woven into the story without overwhelming it. This book frequently made me break out into smiles and I was genuinely enthralled with the story, unlike Can You Keep A Secret? which was just way, way too Chick-Lit for me.
So I absolutely adored I've Got Your Number. Will I read another Sophie Kinsella novel?Read more ›

Not as amusing and funny as other Kinsella novels I have read in the past. I found it draggy at times and definitely predictable.Published 15 months ago by Claire Proulx Theriault
