Okay, since this is the FINAL discussion post for the Attachments Read-Along- there will be spoilers. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Here is another warning. Stop if you haven't read Attachments. STAHP.
(By the way, this is Nara.)
Okay, with three warnings, I'm assuming that people who are still reading this post have read Attachments and my first question is therefore what did you think overall? Did you like how Beth ended up with Lincoln?
Personally I thought it was a leeeetle bit cliched, which was why, while I did really like the book, it's not one of my favourites. While I do say that it was cliched, I honestly don't know how else Rainbow could have ended it so that it wasn't cliched..so...in that way it was a necessary cliche. I don't even know what I'm talking about anymore haha.
I've read all three of Rainbow Rowell's books and while Fangirl is definitely my favourite of the three (and incidentally, is in my favourites), I'm not sure whether I like Attachments or Eleanor and Park more. I probably need to reread E&P, I don't remember that much about it lol.
Overall though, this was definitely a great book- and it's one I can certainly see myself rereading in the future when I feel like a light contemporary. The banter between Beth and Jennifer was so entertaining. One thing I would have liked is to have met Mitch. He sounds awesome.
Anyway, moving on, we see Beth with two very different people. We have Chris and we have Lincoln. These two have very different views about love and marriage and the idea of "space".
"I don't want to love someone so much that they take up all my head, all my space. If I knew I was going to feel this way about you, I would have left a long time ago, while I still could."
"I didn't know someone could love me like this," she said. "Could love me and love me and love me without...needing space."
Lincoln wasn't asleep. He rolled on top of her.
"There's no air in space," he said.
My question to you is: what do you think about the idea of needing "space"?
I mean, personally, I think a bit of space would be good haha. I don't know if I'd want someone so devoted- I like having a bit of time to myself (by which I mean my various books + book boyfriends). Then again, I am a bit of an introvert, I suppose.
And lastly, Chantelle asks why do you think the book is titled "Attachments"?
Interesting question, and while I've discussed it a bit with Chantelle, I won't answer here because I want to see what you guys think!
