The Best Reviews.com One book you don't want to miss!
Chicklitbooks.com Hit Reply was amazing. Not only did each character have their own distinctive voice, but the characters were hilarious, amusing, and realistic. The story line itself was absorbing and fun....an irresistibly funny story. With memorable characters and surprising plot twists, causing the reader to laugh, cry, and get a smile on their face that just doesn't go away until hours after they've finished the book.
TheBestReviews.com This book is written entirely in e-mails and IMs (instant messages). At first I wasn't sure I'd enjoy the format, but after a few pages, it was almost like sitting down at my own computer and catching up with friends. I really got to know not only the three main characters, but others in the book as well. I found it entertaining, romantic and with surprising emotional depth. If you've ever found comfort in an e-mail from a friend or thought about 'googling' that cute guy from high school, you'll enjoy this book.
The BestReviews.com Hit Reply is a phenomenal story that will not only tickle your funny bone, but touch the deepest parts of your heart and soul. Even though the story is all emails and instant messaging, you don't really miss a thing because Ms. St. Claire fills in the blanks that don't happen on screen perfectly...the best story I have ever read. Engrossed in the story is an understatement! Once I started, I never stopped reading until I turned the very last page. A story that has you laughing out loud one minute, then tearing up the next. Hit Reply is one book you don't want to miss.
