I just love this entire series, beginning with this book. Rebecca Bloomwood is hilarious. You would think it would be easy to hate a materialistic, self-absorbed person like this character, but it's not that easy. Oddly enough, Sophie Kinsella is quite good at taking a 'chick-lit' novel and putting some serious thought into what really makes a person. After a while, it is nearly impossible to hate Rebecca, as her shopping reveals a past history of her mother's own record of overspending and her desire to do some 'retail therapy'.

Very good, quick read.
