I'm giving this one 4 stars only because the extra star would give it Bridget Jones quality, which it is not. Grab this one for an airplane ride or a day at the beach. The time will pass quickly.
This time around, Becky has finally got it under control. She is happily paired with boyfriend, Luke; they are living together in fabulous New York City; Becky's job as personal shopper at Barney's couldn't be better; and things are going well with her family and friends. But when attending best friend, Suze's, wedding, Becky realizes there is something missing her life -- an engagement ring. However, Luke is one step ahead of the game -- he proposes to Becky and all is well with the world...or so it seems...
Suddenly, Becky finds herself in a new dimension of bridal registries, wedding planners, engagement parties and more! Her old shopping habits rise to the surface when it comes to picking out cookware -- I mean, who doesn't need a state-of-the-art toaster? But believe it or not, there is a much worse predicament that Becky's got herself into -- she's somehow agreed to getting married in two different places. Now how is she going to get herself out of this mess? Read on to find out...
Shopaholic Ties the Knot is pure fun. Becky is just as outrageous as ever, although this time, I believe, she is also pretty frustrating. Sophie Kinsella has done an excellent job with this new chapter in Becky's life and if you loved the first or second book, you won't be disappointed with the third. The ending of this novel left room for another in this series -- let's hope and pray Sophie Kinsella is listening. Becky Bloomwood is one character I'd rather not do without.
Becky still has an eye for a fine piece of apparel, but it is Luke who has tremendous character growth in this installment, as he becomes less of an accessory for Becky and a multi-layered man in his own right. Old friends like Suze, Tarquin, and Tom from next door are also there as Becky's wedding day approaches with all the laughter, angst, and turmoil we've come to expect from Sophie Kinsella's brilliant series.
The thing that bothered me the most was the main plot. The whole concept of the two weddings was too ridiculous and boring to sustain a whole book. It also showed that Becky really hasn't learned from her past experiences and was as immature as ever. It was frustrating at times to keep reading as it went around in endless circles. The ending was ludicrous and I could spot it coming a mile away.
I wish Kinsella would have finally let Becky grow-up a little, take responsibility and make a decision, instead of the constant schemes and saves that always seem to happen. This plot highlighted the fact that Becky was still very deceptive, even to her fiancee, and it turned me off to her character somewhat.
Instead of the whole wedding plot at the forefront, I would have preferred Luke's character being fleshed out even more than it was. I found myself wanting to know more about him and Becky's relationship; What about Becky does he love? Why does he put up with her nonsense? Generally, more dialogue between the two!
On the plus side, I love following the character through the series. I also like that nothing happens that doesn't figure in somewhere down the line.Read more ›
