This is the fisrt book that now follows in a long line of shopahoplic books. I've never been known to read books, however last year I got a book for holiday and I took the plunge and ordered this book. I couldn't put it down and I loved it so much I bought the rest of the books from the shopaholic series. Sophie Kinsella has a great sense of humor and it proves it in the way the book was written. Th story is about Rebecca Bloomwood who is a single twenty-five year old young woman who has what every other person her age would only dream of. She lives in a very trendy flat in London, has many socialite friends, and lots of beautiful clothes. ... Read the complete review

Shopaholic is one of those books that is so easy to read that I devoured it in an afternoon when the kids were at their dads. The book tells the story of Becky Bloomwood who is a journalist at a financial magazine which is a job she hates as she bluffs her way through most of it by going to launches and just copying the information from the press releases. She would much rather be working on a beauty or fashion magazine. Although she works on a financial magazine and so should know better Becky also has a problem when it comes to shopping. Namely she can't get enough of clothes and items that she is convinced will make her life better. Once she decides she ... Read the complete review

If I was delighted with the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic, I was twice as delighted when I finally read the novel. Part of my enjoyment of the reading was the fact that I- like hundreds of other girls- could see myself in the story. This was one of the rare instances where I actually watched the film before reading the novel, and I have to say that the novel was really more engaging, gripping and definitely less shallow than the movie- even if I adored the film! Kinsella's writing is extremely approachable in Confessions of a Shopaholic, and her flair for a well-constructed plot, albeit a lack of powerful climax really comes across till the very last page. I do have . Read the complete review

A while ago I rented the film version of this book and both me and my wife found it to be an enjoyable watch. I reviewed the film on here and some of the comments I recieved from my fellow Dooyooers mentioned that the book differed from the film, and as I happened to mention this to my wife she decided to buy herself a copy to have a read and find out what the differences were. It didn't take her long to finish the book, a couple of days at the most, and as she chuckled all the way through it she mentioned to me that I should read it myself. I should point out here that that my type of book is generally horror and with the exception of reading a Marion Keyes ... Read the complete review

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella is also known by its original name, Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic. I bought this book, because I had seen the advert for the film and thought it looked great, when I saw the book I thought it might be worth a read. The book centres around Becky Bloomwood, a financial journalist who's sinking in her mountains of debt. Living with the high life with a great flat and wardrobe, she has been in denial about the fact that she cant actually afford it. She realizes that she will have to do something, because sitting there and hoping her debt would go away didn't really work at all. Every day, she gets serious letters ... Read the complete review
