Descripción del producto
La primera novela de Rainbow Rowell, autora de Eleanor & Park y Fangirl.
Una historia emotiva, mágica e ingeniosa sobre lo que significa el amor, con unos personajes que llegan directamente al corazón.
Beth y Jennifer trabajan en el departamento de redacción de un periódico. Son inteligentes, divertidas y muy buenas amigas, y suelen escribirse correos en los que discuten aspectos de sus vidas personales, pero lo que no saben es que un compañero de trabajo también los está leyendo.
Lincoln O'Neill es el tipo que lee los correos. Ese es su trabajo en la empresa. Debería haberlas advertido la primera vez que transgredieron las normas, pero las dos parecen tan lindas... Le gustan, le gustan mucho, sobre todo Beth.
La crítica ha opinado:
“Si Attachments fuera un e-mail, se lo enviaría a toda mi lista de contactos.” Jodi Picould, autora bestseller-
“La combinación perfecta entre el romance más cautivador y el humor más ácido. La propuesta de Rowell es una auténtica delicia.” Chicago Tribune.
Biografía del autor
Rainbow Rowell nació en Nebraska en 1973, y su carrera literaria comenzó hace relativamente poco, en 2011, con la novela Attachments , que le permitió entrar en la lista de bestseller de The New York Times . Esta posición se consolidó con la publicación, dos años más tarde, de Fangirl (2013) y la premiada Eleanor & Park (2013), que obtuvo el Goodreads Choice Award (2013) y fue mejor libro del mes en Amazon. Este éxito en tan corto periodo de tiempo la ha consolidado como una de las autoras más influyentes y de mayor prestigio para la crítica estadounidense. Actualmente vive con su marido y sus dos hijos en Omaha.

Ha surgido un problema al filtrar las opiniones justo en este momento. Vuelva a intentarlo en otro momento.
Esta no es la excepción y pienso que es increíble que Rowell ya tuviera ese don de escritura desde el principio dado que este fue su primer libro. Todo me parece bien con lo fundamental: la trama es sencilla pero intrigante, lo cual te obliga a seguir leyendo; los personajes están bien construidos y tienen profundidad mientras que el ritmo es vertiginoso pues las descripciones son escasas y directas.
Sólo tengo una queja, y es que me parece que la problemática principal que plantea el libro, se resuelve de manera abrupta y algo sacada de lugar, pero no malentiendan, esto únicamente logró que por un momento me confundiera y ya. He ahí la razón de las cuatro estrellas.
P.D. Tiene un inglés muy fácil da leer para los que se lo pregunten.

As previously mentioned, Attachments is told partly though emails between two women, Jennifer and Beth. Lincoln is the third player in the book - he's the IT guy hired to read the emails caught in the company filter, and give citations to the people breaking rules. Beth and Jennifer constantly get caught up in the filter, but the more Lincoln reads their emails, the more he likes them as people and gets to the point where he won't cite them anymore.
The book alternates between the emails and Lincoln, typically his reactions to the emails and his thoughts about Beth. He starts to develop a little crush on her, even though he knows from reading her emails that she has a serious boyfriend.
I don't have a ton to say that won't give away everything about the book since not a lot happened. Lincoln gets a crush on Beth and starts trying to find her in the office so he knows what she looks like. Beth sees Lincoln, not knowing who he is, but thinks he's very attractive and proceeds to email Jennifer regularly about him, and sometimes drives behind him and follows him to see where he goes.
Basically Lincoln and Beth both have unhealthy behaviors around the other one, which I found a little creepy. I GET it, it's supposed to be cute, but I just felt very "meh" about it. I feel like after writing all of that, you'd think I didn't like the book, which wasn't the case. I did like it. It was cute, it was light, and it didn't require a lot of thinking. I enjoyed the friendship between Beth and Jennifer. Having worked in an office for the last 10 years (and counting) of my life, I get having friends like that (a best friend at work, if you will) that you chat with throughout the day, so I really loved that part of the story. I liked Lincoln as a character, but I do feel like the ending of the book felt a little thrown together. I felt like it was 300 pages of build up, and 10 pages of resolution.
Anyway, the book had a happy ending, as we all knew it would. I feel like I'd give the book 3.5 stars on Goodreads if half stars were an option. I'm having a hard time pinpointing exactly what felt missing for me, but it felt lacking. Since I can point out exactly why, I rounded up and gave it 4 stars.
Lincoln O'Neill, an IT worker at a newspaper whose main job duty is to reader workers' emails that have been flagged as inappropriate, is the protagonist. He is years removed from college and still isn't sure what he wants from his life. So, while he claims to be figuring it out, he works the graveyard shift at the newspaper and lives with his mother. While there is a small amount of romance, Lincoln's development from unassuming tech worker to confident man is the main focus of the book. I loved his character and found him very relatable with his devotion to his family, his discomfort with normal social situations, and his joy in playing Dungeons and Dragons with his long-time friends.
Until the end, readers do not meet Beth and Jennifer outside of their email exchanges. I thought this was a genius way to help us understand how Lincoln could fall for someone without ever seeing them or having a conversation with them. I found myself fully invested in Jennifer's indecision regarding children, Beth's issues with her commitment-phobic boyfriend, and their genuine friendship.
Another plot point of Attachments is the end of the twentieth century and the phenomenon known as Y2K. As someone who clearly remembers this time period, I couldn't help but laugh at the paranoia going around the technology department. It was just interesting to read a book that deliberately takes place in a specific year that isn't too far from the present. I thought the setting helped set the tone of the whole story with the email policing and the unknown associated with the impending new year.
Overall, I found this book to be an absolute joy to read! The characters were richly detailed and so easy to relate to. The plot moved along at a slow pace, but it never felt like it was dragging. The romance (while it wasn't the focus) was very sweet and fit with what I knew of Rainbow Rowell's writing style. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to try a Rainbow Rowell novel or is just into an unconventional look at romance at the beginning of the Digital Age.
There kept being mention of how Jennifer and Beth were "nice and smart and funny." I didn't think they were funny. I didn't laugh in any of their email exchanges. Not once. Jennifer didn't seem to want a baby, but she sort of did. If she didn't want a baby, why didn't she talk to her husband or take birth control?
I wanted to smack Beth and Lincoln's heads together. The ending was kind of cute, I'll give it that.
