What I enjoyed most about this book is Kristin’s writing voice. Sometimes, voice is a hard thing to pinpoint, but when an author has it, you know, and here, it leaps off the page. Even if the main character, Sophie, was never physically described and no background was given, you’d still feel like you’d known her your whole life, just from the way she speaks externally, internally, what she observes, and how. Also relating to Sophie as the main character, I loved how the many ying-and-yang qualities of her personality made her so real and relatable. She’s confident yet scared. A planner but she’s free spirited.
My favorite books have unique settings, so Hong Kong as a setting really spoke to me. Hong Kong’s not a place that’s ever been on my travel bucket list, but in post-WWGTW hindsight, I think it’s because I didn’t know much about it and the language-factor was intimidating. But now that I have a taste of the views of Victoria Harbor from the Peak, shimmering views at night, steaming dim sum, pineapple buns with a coating of crystalized sugar for breakfast, a quick side trip Macau via ferry…consider Hong Kong added to my travel bucket list!
In short, this is a book where you can relax and enjoy being transported but also feel like you’ve learned some things by the time you finish (almost in a “Lean In” sort of way). Can’t wait for Kristin’s next book!
Enter Carson, who is more than a typical fling. Like Sophie, he’s passionate about travel, but he’s also a free spirit and an artist with no big plans. Sophie falls briefly under his spell before real life beckons and she’s forced back to her job and her well-ordered but boring life.
I enjoyed the fact that Sophie is independent, and she decides to make big life changes on her own. Her new man inspires her, but she doesn’t go chasing after him. She’s the Manager and CEO of her own dreams and desires, and is a solid role model for any woman wondering: where did my passion for life go? When and where did I lose my way? (And what the heck can I do about it?) It’s never too late!
And then something happened. I time-traveled to my twenties. I got transported back to the time I visited Hong Kong, to when I hated my high powered but stressful corporate job, to when I argued with my family, to when I argued with my partner. It’s a romance in which the romance is almost incidental, as if the main character had her own manic pixie dream guy.
I laughed, I cringed, I cheered. I loved it.
A fun beach read or perfect for a train or plane ride. Can't wait to see more from Kristin Rockaway.
