‘Surprise Me’ Sophie Kinsella

Sylvie has been together with her husband for 10 years, and they have a happy life with their twin daughters. However, when they are told they could have another 68 years together they both panic. How will they keep things interesting for another 68 years? Sylvie comes up with a plan that they should each surprise each other as often as possible. The only problem is that as the surprises unfold she discovers a hidden secret that she hadn’t been expecting…

In some ways this was a little different than the previous Sophie Kinsella novels I’d read, focusing on an established relationship rather than the rom-com format of her previous stories. The storyline also followed a slightly darker path as Sylvie discovers the secret her husband has been keeping from her.

However, like Kinsella’s other novels there were plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and it was a quick, enjoyable page-turner. I did feel slightly frustrated with elements of the plot, but to say much more would spoil the ending for anyone who has not read it yet…

Not my favourite Sophie Kinsella novel, but enjoyable all the same.

  1. Thanks for your review. I heard from several people that it’s enjoyable but not as much as other Kinsella’s books. So I’m still thinking if I want to read it…
