Reviews of Me Blackberry Fool, You Apple Tart by Amelia Slocombe

Paul Samael reviewed on March 13, 2018

This is a very funny chick lit novel, told in the form of an exchange of emails/texts. Isla, the main character, works for a law firm in London (and as I happen to have worked in several of those too, I can confirm that the depictions of lawyer behaviour are pretty accurate). Her best friend, Rachel, works in the marketing department of a firm that sells plumbing and toilet accessories. Rachel's rather useless boyfriend also happens to be the best friend of a Premier League footballer. The footballer takes a bit of a shine to Isla, who is already in a long term relationship. I won't reveal any more of the story, but it is very readable, the plot moves ahead at a decent pace and most importantly, it is genuinely funny. I also enjoyed some of the secondary characters, like Isla's Dad (a man devoted to the infinite culinary possibilities of mince) and Rachel's mildly psychotic Mum. For a longer review, see:

I just loved this book. It was all emails and texts but made true sense between friends and how women communicate in this day and age. Wonderful read and could not put it down. PS I am in my late 40's, before the real tech age.......

It was interesting reading a book composed of only texts and emails. I'm glad things worked out for Isla and Rachel.
