Confessions of a Shopaholicby Sophie Kinsella
Synopses & Reviews
Millions of readers have come to adore New York Times best-selling author Sophie Kinsellas irrepressible heroine. Meet Becky Bloomwood, Americas favorite shopaholic - a young woman with a big heart, big dreams…and just one little weakness.
Becky has a fabulous flat in London's trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only trouble is that she can't actually afford it-not any of it.
Her job writing at Successful Savings not only bores her to tears, it doesn't pay much at all. And lately Becky's been chased by dismal letters from the bank -letters with large red sums she can't bear to read-and they're getting ever harder to ignore.
She tries cutting back. But none of her efforts succeeds. Becky's only consolation is to buy herself something ... just a little something....
Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life-and the lives of those around her-forever.
Sophie Kinsella has brilliantly tapped into our collective consumer conscience to deliver a novel of our times-and a heroine who grows stronger every time she weakens. Becky's hilarious schemes to pay back her debts are as endearing as they are desperate. Her "confessions" are the perfect pick-me-up when life is hanging in the (bank) balance.
Rebecca Bloomwood is a financial journalist — she spends her working life telling others how to manage their money. On the surface, she has what most twenty-five year olds only dream of: a flat in the trendiest part of London, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only trouble is that she can't actually afford it — not any of it. Her job barely pays her rent, let alone her monthly Visa minimum. Still, how can she resist that perfect pair of shoes? Or that designer scarf that's 50% off?
Meanwhile, the credit card companies and bank managers converge like vultures, and their ominous letters grow ever harder to ignore. Becky tries cutting back; she even tries making more money. But nothing seems to work. Her only consolation is to buy herself something . . . just a little something...
Finally, a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life — and the lives of those around her — forever.
