Blurb from Goodreads:
By day, two young women
spend their hours emailing each other, discussing every aspect of their
lives. By night, Lincoln, a lonely IT guy, spends his hours reading
every exchange. Soon Lincoln is drawn into their lives, and finds
himself falling for one of them. Lincoln decides it's time to muster the
courage to follow his heart.
“I didn’t knew love could leave the lights on all the time.”
is a cute character. Very likeable and handsome. I don’t have much
experience with reading books in a male POV, but I quite liked it.
However, his story wasn’t that exciting. I didn’t really liked Sam. And during half of this book he was thinking about her soooo….
way Rowell wrote the conversations between Jennifer and Beth was
refreshing. It’s very original and I would love read another book
written like this. I feel like I know them much better than Lincoln. I
loved how they talked to each other. They were funny and I immediately
liked them both a lot. I was very moved about what happened to Jennifer.
The storyline was nice, but I think my expectations were a bit
too high. I read Eleanor & Park and Fangirl and I both loved them a
lot. But this one… I don’t know how to explain myself, so I made a
little chart thingy:
(Ignore my drawing skills haha :D)
you can see I really liked the ending (the last 2 chapter convinced me
to give it 4 stars instead of 3). But I was… unsatisfied? I feel like
the story just started. I want another book! I want to know more about
Beth and Lincoln.
So for me, this wasn’t the best book Rowell wrote,
but I still liked it. I just think it wasn’t on the same level as
E&P or Fangirl.
“I didn’t know someone could love me like this,” she said. “Could love me and love me and love me without… needing space.”
“There’s no air in space,” he said.
