1.) Mr. Yamasaki
3.) "If it's in the bin, it's public property"
Those three things make this too-silly fluff book worth the read.
Dysfunctionally humorous characters can be really funny. Lisa Lutz is the queen of this style for me, which means Sophie Kinsella has big shoes to fill. In my head, the trick is to create messed up scenarios for the characters to sort out, but not stupid situations or ones that could be easily explained. Sophie's character Poppy is constantly entrapping herself in embarrassing positions and doing endlessly idiotic things which does little to endear herself to the reader.
But I get this is quite accepted as a chick-lit fluff read. And I wasn't looking for literary genius. I just wanted more laughs and less cringing.
Overall, I've Got Your Number is a predictable romance where all the players end up exactly where they should.
