Love. Marriage. Infidelity. Parenthood. Crises of identity. Death. Cupcakes. The themes in Right Click, the third and final installment in the Click series, couldn’t be more pressing for this group of friends as they navigate through their 30’s. Another six months have passed since we last eavesdropped on the hilarious, poignant and often times inappropriate email adventures of Renee and friends. As the light-hearted, slice of life story continues to unfold, relationships are tested and some need to be set “right” before everyone can find their “happily ever after.”
How can a book that features email and nothing else, tell a story and actually tell it well? Well this book is the answer to that. And actually the whole three book series answers that question. I have read and enjoyed all of them. This book covers the time period leading up to Renee’s wedding.
What did I like about this book:
The characters. How can you tell that much about the characters through reading emails? That’s the beauty of Ms. Becker’s writing, the characters personalities shine through loud and clear. My favorite characters of course are Renee and Shelley. Renee, the main character, is the friend everyone loves and the peripheral characters are all her friends or in one case, her fiance.
The humor between the characters was off the charts at times. If you like puns, this book is for you. Things get silly at times and the reader is pulled right along for the ride. There was at least two pun-offs(as the character calls them)this time around and they are one of the funnest part of reading these books.
The Story. And there really is one. All the events surrounding Renee and her fiance’s wedding are told about, as is some big surprise events along the way. Shelley is still moved far away but she still has a big part to play in this book, as she did in all the other books. I can’t help that I totally picture a young Samantha from Sex in the City when I picture Shelley and I do know that I have mentioned that in a previous review! And yes that’s where any sexual high jinx come from in these books-although not as much as in the first book, Click.
What don’t I like about this book:
I really thought about this. There’s nothing wrong with these books, at all. They tell a good story, they have good characters and things do happen, as happens in real life. I do know that the way the book is written might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I would suggest giving them a try, because you never know. I found them to be engaging and really easy to read.
Who would I recommend this book to:
Chic-lit and romance readers and of course all the people that have read the first two books, Click and Double Click.
I liked this series and I am glad I had a chance to read all of them. I found them to all be a very fast and enjoyable read. I was given this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
