This is such a funny, warm, heartfelt, touching and unforgettable novel and as a bloke I’m not even sure I’m the target reader at all! Set in 1999 when email was just emerging - follow the will-they-won’t-they romance between a glamorous office junior and painfully shy IT geek!
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
It's 1999 and for the staff of one newspaper office, the internet is still a novelty. By day, two young women, Beth and Jennifer, spend their hours emailing each other, discussing in hilarious detail every aspect of their lives, from love troubles to family dramas. And by night, Lincoln, a shy, lonely IT guy spends his hours reading every exchange. At first their emails offer a welcome diversion, but as Lincoln unwittingly becomes drawn into their lives, the more he reads, the more he finds himself falling for one of them. By the time Lincoln realizes just how head-over-heels he really is, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he say to her? 'Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mails - and also, I think I love you'. After a series of close encounters, Lincoln decides it's time to muster the courage to follow his heart ' and find out whether there really is such a thing as love before first-sight.
