Praise for Attachments

One of Entertainment Weekly‘s 2011 Best Summer Reads

Chosen for the Barnes & Noble Summer 2011 Discover Great New Writers program.

“Perfectly mixing sweet romance with deliciously tart wit, Rowell’s literary debut is a complete charmer.”
Chicago Tribune

One of the “Outstanding Debuts of 2011”
Kirkus Reviews

“A funny, touching portrayal of friendship, loneliness and love in the digital age.”
Daily Telegraph (UK)

“Witty, original and easy to relate to, Attachments is an absolute pleasure.”
Heat (UK)

“Cracking, laugh-out-loud dialogue, characters that feel painfully real, and a sweet premise about love in the information age: if Attachments were an e-mail, I’d be forwarding it to my entire list of contacts.”
— Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of Sing You Home

Attachments is so perfectly engaging, so sly, and so funny I read it all in one sitting, then went back and read my favorite scenes a second time. Between the cynicism-free romance and the faith that a beautiful, sweet life awaits the good among us, I hope Rowell never stops writing.”
— Haven Kimmel, bestselling author of A Girl Named Zippy and The Solace of Leaving Early

“Rainbow Rowell lights up the sky with this sparkling debut novel. Attachments is fresh, fun and charmingly quirky.”
— Claire Cook, bestselling author of Must Love Dogs and Seven Year Switch

— Bridget Asher, author of My Husband’s Sweethearts and The Provence Cure for the Brokenhearted

“An absolute pleasure to read! Wry, relatable and oh-so-smart, Attachments speaks in a pitch-perfect voice to the romantic in all of us.”
