REVIEW: Can You Keep A Secret?

blog-cykasCan You Keep A Secret by Sophie Kinsella

3.75/5 Stars

“It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times”

This novel is a quirky, fun, hilarious read that made me so very happy. Was this book a spectacular piece of literature? no. Would I recommend this book to my friends? hell yes. The plot may not have been complicated and thought provoking but it was the book that I’ve had the most fun reading in a long time. Highly addictive through Kinsella’s quirky and scatter-brained protagonist, I found I couldn’t put the book down because I was smiling too much.

This book follows Emma, an assistant at at marketing firm. While on a plane from a conference (which she made a total mess of) they experience heavy turbulence. Thinking she is sure to perish, Emma spills all her secrets, verbally vomiting them to the person sitting next to her. OF COURSE this person is an attractive young man, and of course he shows up in her life that week (spoilers: they don’t die horribly in a plane crash in the first chapter) as the owner of the company she works for.

This story is full of laughs and moments that’ll have you running out of your room to read them to your friends. Its a quick read and I would definitely recommend this to anyone in a reading slump. Emma’s quirky personality and the underlying meaning of being honest makes for a book I just couldn’t put down.
