    One thought on “Confessions of a Shopaholic”

    1. So I used to work with this girl called Sarah, who was a real no bullshit kind of person. I really liked her because she was intelligent and articulate, someone I could actually hold a conversation with. She was well read, she kept up on current events and she could talk politics while maintaining integrity and respectability. When I saw this book on the break table in the back, I never would have thought that it was hers. When I found out I made fun of her. I couldn't believe a girl like her wa [...]

    2. This is one of the most poorly written books I’ve read this year.BUT. It’s also one of the funniest and cleverest and most interestingly narrated. It’s so very extremely hard to put it down. Rebecca Bloomwood is a funny and heart-warming heroine. Her fear of facing her ever-growing debts cracked me up every time she would receive a new letter regarding her credit.Oh, that was so much fun. Really, I swear, this book gives a new definition to the word ‘‘fun.’’ Somehow, Sophie Kinsell [...]

    3. I was in the library when I walked by this book, while I was looking for another book. I pulled it off the shelf and because I've found and read some pretty amazing book with this randomness, I thought ok. Another reason I have become a little obsessed with shopping on ebay. I thought this girl book would be fun, it would be like a new girl friend, getting to now good and bad about her, how she thinks about life So, I checked it out and I read it in about 6 hours. Reason it sucked:1. The main ch [...]

    4. I really hate slamming books, really I do. This book is the typical chick-lit that I've grown to love, and to be fair, it's a quick read.But, my praise stops there.The main character of this book, Rebecca Bloomwood, is the most annoying, daft, and ridiculous character I have ever had the misfortune to read about. I understand that she's a "shopaholic", but I've had quite a few friends who fell into that catagory that were never in danger of being as simple-minded and arrogant as Rebecca.Every ti [...]

    5. This book pleasantly surprised me! I went into this book expecting it to be just like the movie (which, by the way I love), but it might as well have been a completely different story. The only things it has in common with the movie are the character names, the obsessive shopper and in debt main character, and the title. I adjusted my expectations and thought it would be one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the book, but I loved them equally but in different ways! The book [...]

    6. THE MOVIE IS INFINITELY BETTER (and I really tried not to compare them).The narrator's voice was really well done, but her actual personality and thoughts were beyond annoying and scary, honestly. In the movie she's at least searching for a job, working, and trying to figure things out while she shops and avoids the credit card people. Somehow she just came off as a bit more sane and the scenes were actually funny.In the book she's in massive debt and lying to herself and everyone around her as [...]

    7. After college, I wanted nothing to do with serious books. And so began my quest for all books fluffy and light. The cover of this screamed fluff at me. This book is NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. Take it for what it is - hilarious chick lit. Otherwise, you'll find yourself realizing that if you actually knew a character as shallow as Becky Bloomwood, you'd probably give her a look of disgust and hiss at her as she walked by or something. Also, don't think too much about her relationship with Luke. B [...]

    8. Forgot to mention I binge read the first three books in this series a couple weekends ago. I don't really do chicklit, but this was amazing. BRIDGET JONES FEELS EVERYWHERE.LOVED THIS. Thank you Inge for an amazing recommendation. This was feel good chocolate and wine and shoes and just what I needed. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    9. Vile cultural poison masquerading as a poorly-written novel. I think that a heroin addiction is less damaging to young women, and it's certainly more interesting to read about. If there is a male equivalent to women’s mindless pursuit of name-brand (read: expensive) fashion, it would be a dude with a mullet peeling out in a TransAm blaring a Bon Jovi anthem. This book made me physically ill. I felt like I was in more peril reading this book than anyone on a toxic waste clean-up crew. I’d wag [...]

    10. The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic (Shopaholic, #1), Sophie Kinsella ( Madeleine Wickham)The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic (2000) (Confessions of a Shopaholic in the United States and India) is the first in the popular Shopaholic series. It is a chick-lit novel by Sophie Kinsella, a pen-name of Madeleine Wickham. It focuses on the main character Rebecca (Becky) Bloomwood, a financial journalist, who is in a serious amount of debt through her shopping addiction.تاریخ نخستین خو [...]

    11. Main character gets a few lucky breaks so she can continue pulling the same immature shit as she did at the beginning of the book and learns absolute fuckall in the process.

    12. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! I saw so much of myself in the main characters spending personality that it just made me laugh all the way thru reading it. The book has that Bridget Jones feel but wer as Bridget is clueless in relationships Rebecca is clueless with credit and spending. Her crazy schemes to make extra money, like homemade potholders to sell but never following thru on is a page out of my life. I gave up credit cards as my solutions and it appears that she finds her own way to keep he [...]

    13. I picked this book up on a whim at the thrift store. I had heard it was fun and hilarious and that I'd love it. It wasn't, and I didn't. In fact, I only made it 25% into the book before I decided that reading more just wasn't for me. For starters, the main character gives me a bad name. What a vapid, delusional, hypocritical mess. She's bad at her job, she's completely self-centered and selfish and annoying, completely focused on outward appearances and and seems to think that the universe owes [...]

    14. This book was a waste of my time. And I spent far too much time on this book that I really didn't like. The first 200 pages or so are spent with the main character, Rebecca, avoiding all her collection calls and all the letters in the mail from her creditors. She stuffs things into trucks, she keeps the letters in a drawer she never opens, anything to avoid the fact that she's got bills to pay. And then she has an embarrassing run-in with a sales clerk who tells her all her cards are declined. S [...]

    15. As a Shopaholic myself, I found this book really enjoyable. If you like shopping at all, this book will make you laugh. The main character gets into funny situations constantly. It's not an advanced physics treatise, but it's not mindless either. The effort the main character goes to to justify her shopping is hilarious and some genius plotting on Kinsella's part. If you don't like shopping at all, look elsewhere. If you like funny, memorable characters and plots, then give this a try. A friend [...]

    16. This book was super cuteBecky's "justifications" for all her purchases made me laugh! I also now feel a strangely intense desire to go shopping :P

    17. I think it's hilarious that these books dominate the "chick-lit" scene when they are, in fact, the most sexist books I've managed to come across. And this one really takes the prize.This is my third Kinsella book, and so far the women are always complete idiotic dip-shits that only barely manage to bumble through their careers while managing to make an ass of themselves at every turn. I find it's quite painful to read and not at all amusing. And if that's not unbearable enough, in this one Rebec [...]

    18. Opening line: "Ok. Don't panic. It's only a Visa bill. It's a piece of paper, a few numbers. I mean, just how scary can a few numbers be?"It's been ages since I’ve read any chick-lit but when I found this book amidst a bunch of “free stuff” left at the mail boxes (ironic hey, its about overspending and I find it for free) Anyways I grabbed it, along with some other useless crap and immediately started chuckling. Reminding me very much of Bridget Jones's Diary, this was an equally fun read, [...]

    19. If you know anyone that is impulsive, spendy, and irresponsible, do not let him/her read this book. Seriously.Because for any normal woman (or man) with above average impulsive shopping tendencies, this book will make him/her feel better about his/herself. Take me, for example. When I am confronted by a cute pair of shoes or some colorful household item, I get kind ofwellpulsive, spendy, and irresponsible. Sometimes, my willpower can overrule that temptation, though passing through the Times Squ [...]

    20. If you saw the movie before reading the book, you will not find many similarities in the movie and this book. the movie takes much of its content from the second Shopaholic book. I liked this book, I found it fun and quite humorous. I have to say I enjoyed the movie more than this first book. The character is a fun girl who has a real issue with her shopping habits. She is not very good with her money. This is a cute book.

    21. Well I enjoy my light reads, particularly Marian Keyes, so I thought I'd get a kick out of the Shopaholic series-not so.The protagonist is irritating and irrational to the point of annoyance.I surmise though that this series and it's popularity has to do with how people view money. I like shopping, but have never spent outside my means to the point of debt. I personally think that's stupid. I don't fully get the "have-to-have-it" mentality ESPECIALLY with pricey goods.So I didn't relate to the c [...]

    22. Elayne Boosler said:When women are depressed, they eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. setuju deh, soalnya gw samasekali gak ngerti ama "hobi" kaum cewe tentang shopping ini. semua cewe pasti doyan shopping meski tidak semua memiliki kadar yang separah becky. ceritanya tentang seorang becky yang tak bisa mengontrol hobi belanjanya sehingga dikejar-kejar surat tagihan dari bank padahal dia kerjanya jadi jurnalis keuangan, hahaha. cuman gw sering [...]

    23. Funny. Light. Completely brainless. Perfect beach book. The main character is a completely out of control shopaholic, and will go to any lengths to conceal her addiction while still feeding it on the sly. It's a thoroughly enjoyable book, but it has a fatal flaw, the flaw that made me give it a "liked it" rating instead of a "really liked it" rating. This chick drives me NUTS! It is almost physically painful to see her destroying her life for a new scarf or perfect shoes. Priorities, woman! Pay [...]

    24. I do re-read this book every couple of years. Probably because it was my first glimpse of Becky Bloomwood and I liked her a lot. I remember being in my 20s and spending with my credit card like I wasn't going to have to pay the bill. And I remember the juggling I did to pay down bills and the stress I would feel when I had to choose between eating something that was not soup or paying my JC Penney card down (starting off in government I had to buy new clothesriously people, instead of a wedding [...]

    25. My curiosity with this book has finally ended.In my humble opinion, the movie is a million times better. Noriously, trust me. IT IS I'm just going to promote the movie and convince you guys to watch it. Why? Well kids.1)2) Yeah I was pretty much hoping those pictures proved my point so like, Watch. This. Shit. Now Y'all won't regret this !! I promise, you'll thank me. Okay, just thank me in the form of a $500 gift card to my local book store so I know it's real ;) ;) ;)

    26. This is a wonderful, light, fluffy read. It was the first real 'chick lit' book I ever read and it got me hooked. The character is vivid and fun, and I can identify well (a bit too well!) with Becky Bloomwood and her retail therapy issues. I love the use of the present tense and first person narrative, I think it works brilliantly. I have now read all, except one, of Sophie Kinsella's books, which are all in the same vain, and they are fantastic reads within the 'chick lit' genre.

    27. Say anything about Kinsella, she knows how to deliver simple mindless fun. These books are supposed to be Chick Lit after all, and they always leave me with a bunch of giggles and British slang. Off to watch the movie now.

    28. I wanted a truly light read, and I decided to start this. I love Sophie Kinsella. I've read several of her other books, but I put this one off mostly because of the movie. Which was horrible. As far as cheesy chick-flicks go it was the worst. I couldn't even finish it, and it was because Rebecca was just a plain idiot. I know that was kind of the point. She has no self control and yada yada, but still. She was just too annoying.Anyway, I have heard from several other movie haters that the book i [...]
