Review: Holly's Inbox by Holly Denham

Courtesy of I Just Finished

In a story told completely by email we get a glimpse into the life and loves of Holly Denham. From her first day as a receptionist in a London investment bank we share the ups and downs during five months worth of Holly’s interactions with friends, family, co-workers and of course the men in her life.

Being fed bits and pieces with each email keeps the pages turning. Holly’s conversations jump from family arguments to flirting with the hot VP of Corporate Finance to snarky conversations with the office know-it-all. Throw in backstabbers, sluts and long lost loves and you have the makings of a hilarious adventure.

This book was so unique. In first glancing at the book you might be put off or overwhelmed by the heft of 665 pages but they fly by so quickly you’re left wondering why there isn’t any more. The only down side to the book is that the emails jump from one sender to another with just a change in subject and sometimes I got caught up in the story so much that I frequently skimmed over the subject in my haste to continue reading and got thrown off by the changes.

If you’re a fan of chick lit then this is a must read for you and don’t forget to visit Holly's Inbox to catch up on Holly’s most current inbox revelations.

Holly's Inbox sounds like a lot of fun! I'm reading a true story that is told in a series of emails and I'm surprised at how well the concept works.
