Sophie Kinsella's An Undomestic Goddess

The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

Date Started: 1st Mar 2007
Date Finished: 2nd Mar 2007


As usual, Sophie Kinsella's book is a light-hearted, romantic comedy which was a great way to wind down after a hard working week.

I haven't read any of her Shopaholic books, but I did read Can You Keep a Secret? and I really enjoyed that. I bought this book purely because I needed something fun and uncomplicated after reading Stephen King's IT. It was my candy floss for my brain after chewing for hours on a steak.

The Undomestic Goddess is about a young female lawyer who's working her ass off to become the youngest partner at a very prestigious law firm. She almost succeeds, but makes one tiny little mistake that turns out to be a really big, irreparable one. She runs, needing some time to sort things out, gets mistaken for a housekeeper, and a whole slew of hilarious events follow.

This isn't the most original concept, by all means, but it has always promised the reader the best of times. A lot of it is quite predictable, but it's enjoyable to just sit back and see how things unfold as the characters go along. The most colourful characters, funnily enough, are her employers, who aren't the brightest of people, but they have the best intentions at heart.

Read it, if you enjoy chick-lit. It will definitely entertain you.
