Meet Kate MacKenzie… idealistic office worker, reluctant deliverer of termination notices and queen of instant messaging. As sweet as sugar.
Meet Mitch Hertzog… ever-smiling corporate lawyer, defender of the downtrodden and king of aborted dinner dates. Good enough to eat.
Meet Ida Lopez… cake, cookie and pastry-maker extraordinaire, purveyor of the desert trolley and goddess of all things mouth-wateringly yummy. As nice as pie.
Together they must battle tyrants and despots to find truth, justice and the perfect double fudge pudding.
I must say that I absolutely love this book. I have read it a couple of times before but I still like to read it.
It’s amazing how the story is told, through emails, journals, meetings ect.
Some of the stuff that happens is really funny and it has a great ending.
There are characters that you love and characters that you love to hate. It has a great balance of lovable and hateable characters and the story plays out so well.
I think Meg Cabot has managed to pick the perfect events to tell the story with and it is really interesting reading how the different characters talk to each other in different ways depending on what character they are talking to at the time.
I think I also like the fact that you don’t really get any descriptions at all which means that you can basically make up the whole setting for everything yourself. Although it might be a bit annoying if the movie of the story is made and the characters are totally different to what you imagined (unless the movie is already out and I don’t know about it.)
Anyway, I really like this book and I really do recommend it. If the way the story is told throws you a little to start with then persevere and hopefully you will like it by the end or if you don’t then you will like the story enough to be able to overlook the way it is told.
