The Undomestic Goddess

Sophie Kinsella is such a funny author! The Undomestic Goddess is the third novel I have read by her, and everyone of those three has made laugh numerous times! This one was probably my favorite, just because for me personally the whole shopping thing in Confessions of a Shopaholic got a little annoying for me sometimes.  I mean I loved the overall story (and the movie!! with Hugh Dancy!!)! Anyway Undomestic Goddess was really funny! I kept bursting out in laughter at home, and everyone would look at me funny and be like, "What's so funny?"  Some non readers just don't realize that books can be funny too!!

Anyway the story is about this twenty-nine year old lawyer who has been working her butt off the past seven years.  She works sometimes 24 hours days, because her work just keeps piling it on.  Anyway, she up for Partnership for the company she works for, which is something she has worked for since starting for the company (which is the most prestigious law firm in London). 
When she finds out she got the partnership, that's when her world starts crumbling down.  She finds out that she missed a big contract, which loses the company ten million quids (English money) and is fired.  Since she isn't used to making mistakes, she has a panic attack.  She just takes off and gets on a random train, which takes her to English countryside. 
When she arrives there, she knocks on a door to ask them if she could get a glass of water.  Well, that knock on the door changes her whole life.
I don't want to tell you anymore, but the only thing I will say is that it is a love story and extremely funny along the way.  It has its emotional parts too, so it isn't only fun and games, but it definitely was a great romantic-comedy. 
The only thing I though was that the ending could maybe have been different, but you are just going to have to read it and see for herself. :)

Anyway, I have class once again soon, so I better get going.  I just reread The DUFF again, and only just started a new book yesterday, so it may be a few days until my next entry.  So enjoy, and have a great week!
