"A Plume book."
"'Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you...' Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives. Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now--reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be 'internet security officer,' he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers--not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke. When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories. By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he say . . . ?"

Charming, nostalgic read submitted by eapearce on October 12, 2014, 12:43pm One of my favorite things about Attachments was the setting: 1999 right before the turn of the millennium. All of the pop culture references are to late 90s shows, movies, and music, and it was fun to remember how worried everyone was about "Y2K." This setting was a really nice way on author Rainbow Rowell's part to add some fun and nostalgia to the story. As with Rowell's other books, the dialogue in Attachments is spot on. It's incredibly refreshing to read a story where the conversations between characters flow as naturally as if they were happening right in front of me. The premise of the story is cute and realistic. I sometimes found myself frustrated with Lincoln's insecurities and inability to take charge, but he was a charming character nonetheless, and I enjoyed finding out about the characters of Jennifer and Beth at the same rate that he did (only through information disclosed in their email exchanges). Attachments is a simple story with lots of heart. I would recommend it to anyone.

Enjoyable submitted by Zekicmom on August 27, 2015, 10:52am I really liked Attachments. It was a relatively light read and I found it hard to put down. I so wanted there to be a happy ending, I had to keep reading until I found out if there'd be one!

One of my favorite books submitted by ArtGirl13 on June 27, 2017, 3:38pm I love everything Rainbow Rowell but this book is my favorite. It's not a super climactic book but the story and the writing is beautiful. It is a simple story about Lincoln and his life and job. The writing is amazing and i would reccomend it to anyone who like realistic fiction/romance novels. It is a short read and totally worth it!

Nothing particularly new with my opinion submitted by bmarble on June 27, 2018, 6:21pm I agree with a majority of these comments, it was an easy and fun read, very relaxing. I enjoyed the book from start to end. I do think it ended a bit abruptly but it didn't really hurt my opinion on the book. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a quick read!
