Fiction. Literature. Romance. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella's Wedding Night.
Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women dont get visited by ghosts. Or do they?
When the spirit of Laras great-aunt Sadiea feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dancemysteriously appears, she has one request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadies possession for more than seventy-five years, because Sadie cannot rest without it. 
Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadies necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different twenties girls learn some surprising truths from and about each other. Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsellas books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.

Perfect bit of fluff. ( )

Great story! The I really enjoyed the characters. They were very real (even the ghost), and great emotions. A really fun story to read. As I closed the book last night I was sad to see it end. ( )

In addition to being your tradition fun and flirty Kinsella book, this was a really cool ghost story that said a lot about family, heritage, and culture.

I jumped into this book without reading the blurb, and as such was a little alarmed when I read that there was a ghost--I felt like this would be gimmicky and take away from Kinsella's normal charm. However, Kinsella made it work. The mystery that was intricately woven through the book was so subtle at first that I didn't realize there was a more complex plot going on until I was already deep in. The ghost aspect was a lot of fun and provided some very humourous scenarios.

Kinsella's books often feature a main character with dissatisfied parents. In this one, there was more depth as Lara's uncle was also deeply entwined with Lara's relationship with her parents. I enjoyed the concluding scenes that showed how their relationship strengthened in their common problems; this differed from other Kinsella books where the daughter merely proved herself.

I really loved that in this book Lara ultimately focused on making Sadie happy and not herself. I feel like Lara really matured as a charaacter, and was someone I'd really like to meet and know. She gained a lot of empathy and let her stubbornness appear in a productive manner.

Lara's relationship with Josh and her subsequent relationship with Ed was fascinating. I enjoyed seeing how she wanted to give Ed advice that people had given her regarding Josh, and seeing the moments of truth dawning on her.

The subplots that wove themselves together also kept this book fresh and original. Lara's business ventures were ambitious at best, but I loved the way her naivete gave her a new perspective and correspondingly a chance at success.

I think writingwise this was one of Kinsella's 'best' books as it contained more subtle lessons and intrigues, and I definitely had a lot of fun with this one. ( )

Sophie Kinsella is probably the only chick lit author that I might consistently read, looking forward to the rest in the series! ( )

No hace falta ser un lince para darse cuenta de que Lara Lington no atraviesa un buen momento: su novio le ha dado esquinazo, su mejor amiga se ha largado a Goa y la empresa de cazatalentos que ha montado con ella se va al garete. Ya es hora de que algo le salga bien. Pues no. En plena tormenta existencial, aparece nada menos que el fantasma de su tía abuela Sadie, recientemente fallecida a la edad de 105 años. Con el aspecto y la marcha de una joven de los años veinte, Sadie la apremia para que recupere un misterioso collar desaparecido en extrañas circunstancias, sin el cual nunca podrá disfrutar en paz de su eterno descanso. Y aunque Lara intenta tomárselo con calma, la impulsiva Sadie la empujará a través de un alucinante y laberíntico enredo en el que se verán envueltos personajes como su repelente prima Diamanté, un estirado ejecutivo norteamericano y hasta la misma policía, que se pondrá a husmear ante la sospecha de un improbable asesinato. Así, a lo largo de este hilarante laberinto, Lara acabará convencida de que, si cuentas con la ayuda de un fantasma, al final las cosas siempre se arreglan.

[T]he newest addition to Sophie Kinsella's growing library of comedies about plucky women unafraid to dust themselves off from the last caper before heading off to the next.
 
 
De Londense twintiger Lara Lington (ik-personage) gaat met tegenzin naar de crematie van haar oudtante Sadie, die 105 jaar oud is geworden. Vlak na de dienst wordt Lara opgeschrikt door de overledene, die in de vorm van een geest heeft besloten nog niet klaar te zijn voor het hiernamaals. Lara krijgt de opdracht om voor Sadie een ketting te vinden, die een belangrijke betekenis voor haar heeft. De zoektocht verloopt alles behalve voorspoedig, maar Lara leert haar oudtante wel behoorlijk goed kennen. Tevens maakt ze handig gebruik van de situatie door de excentrieke Sadie onder andere haar ex-vriendje te laten bespioneren. Vrolijke, ongecompliceerde roman van de populaire auteur, die met grote vaart is geschreven. De humor is, dankzij de vele blunders van het hoofdpersonage, volop aanwezig in dit – voor chicklit-begrippen – originele verhaal. Wie bekend is met de stijl van de schrijfster, zal niet verrast zijn, maar deze roman zal zeker in de smaak vallen bij een brede, vrouwelijke doelgroep.
