Lincoln O’Neil would not have applied for the job of “Internet Security Officer” if he would have known it was going to be this.
Having accepted the position with images of putting his computer knowledge to work in tasks like fire walls and repairs. He was shocked to find himself working the night shift and basically reading the email exchanges between employees to make sure they were work related; and if they were not, writing up reports on them.
When Lincoln finds the conversations going on between two employees, Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder, he knows he should file a report. Instead, Lincoln finds himself absorbed in their conversations and can not bring himself to put a stop to it. Soon, he finds that he is looking forward to work just to see what the two girls will be talking about, and through the email exchanges, he finds that he is becoming attracted to Beth.
Now Lincoln is in a real pickle. He would love to meet Beth, but now he knows so many intimate and personal things about her, how can he?
I enjoyed reading (quite honestly) the exchanges of the two girls Beth and Jennifer. Much like Lincoln, I too was captivated by their humor and some of the more serious topics they covered. I think that is exactly where Rainbow Rowell wanted her readers, right in the shoes of Lincoln.
It’s funny to say I “read their emails” as I listened to this one on audio. Perhaps that feeling that I was there is chalked up to the impressive narration of Laura Hamilton. She navigated through this book smoothly, easily giving each character their own voice.
Attachments, as all of Rainbow Rowell’s books that I have read/listened to at this time, are worth spending time with. Unique and fun.
