If you like romantic comedies of the Nora Ephron variety (especially my fave, You’ve Got Mail), I don’t know how you couldn’t like this novel. The romance plot is as sweet and charming as Lincoln is, even when he’s crossing into dangerous ethical territory, and the emails between Beth and Jennifer are so fun and snarky that you understand why Lincoln would feel compelled to keep reading. If you’re not romantically inclined, you can take this book instead as a look at Internet culture and how it has changed since 1999, and wonder how the story would play out in today’s age of sharing everything and having no expectation of privacy. I prefer the sentimental, though.
