Frothy good fun. Nothing like a 4 or 5 hundred page book that flies by because the actual amount of text on each page is not that much. In fact here is what I wrote in an email to a friend: “instead of reading a 600 page disappointing book (Anthology)I started a 600 page book Saturday night and finished it this morning. It was delightful and could be read that quickly because there was literally about half a paragraph of text per page: HOlly’s Inbox by Holly Denham. A story told in emails. Fun and quick.”
Holly gets a job as a receptionist at a very corporatey building. She makes friends with the other receptionist and they are united in their hatred of several of the people upstairs. Holly has connections to several of the characters in the story, though you are not exactly sure how or why until more details come out.
There is romance, back story, hilarity-all the things I expect from a nice British contemporary book.
