Sophie Kinsella

Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella Book Summary

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Party Crasher and Love Your Life comes a witty and emotionally charged novel that delves into the heart of a marriage, and how those we love and think we know best can sometimes surprise us the most

“Sophie Kinsella keeps her finger on the cultural pulse, while leaving me giddy with laughter.”—Jojo Moyes, author of The Giver of Stars and The Last Letter from Your Lover
After ten years together, Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls, and they communicate so seamlessly they finish each other’s sentences. They have a happy marriage and believe they know everything there is to know about each other. Until it’s casually mentioned to them that they could be together for another sixty-eight years . . . and panic sets in. 
They decide to bring surprises into their marriage to keep it fresh and fun. But in their pursuit of Project Surprise Me—from unexpected gifts to restaurant dates to sexy photo shoots—mishaps arise, with disastrous and comical results. Gradually, surprises turn to shocking truths. And when a scandal from the past is uncovered, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other at all.
With a colorful cast of eccentric characters, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit and charm, Sophie Kinsella presents a humorous yet moving portrait of a marriage—its intricacies, comforts, and complications. Surprise Me reveals that hidden layers in a close relationship are often yet to be discovered.

Super boring. Really do not buy. It was a painful reading .... worst book by kinsella

Boring!. I think I may in the minority here but I am in the middle of reading this book and am bored to tears. I rarely stop reading a book until the end so I am forcing myself to finish. I found this book silly without being funny, and just boring.

Different. Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors. One of the reasons is the fact that she transports me to this world that is the perfect blend of humor, love and family/friend bonds. This book definitely missed the mark on funny. There were a couple of moments where the book was funny but definitely not her usual.

Surprise Me. Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors. I’ve even read her Shopoholic series twice. Fun and entertaining. Surprise Me was not fun and it was decided not funny. First the heroine was convinced her marriage was falling apart then she finds out her father was a pedophdile! It was not a well written story, I had no empathy for the characters. I recommend to save yourself some angst and don’t read this book

👎🏻. Can't download the Book !

Fantastic Read!. 4.5 stars Surprise Me is a funny well-written novel with quirky characters, witty dialogue and a unique plot. I’ve read several of Sophie Kinsella’s books, and she never fails to spin a funny tale. Although her books are a little over-the-top, as well as her latest one, Surprise Me, they always make me laugh. The first half of this book is a bit silly, but the second half is anything but; it’s emotional, character-driven, and utterly absorbing. Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, a loving marriage, and twin five-year-old girls. However, after their GP mentioned that they could live long enough to be married for another sixty-eight years, Dan and Sylvie began to panic. Neither one of them could fathom being married to the same person for that length of time. So the two of them started to brainstorm ideas to spice of their marriage and keep it fresh, for their long-expected years together. The two decide that surprising one another with exciting adventures, loving gestures, and romantic outings, was the way to go. The problem was, though, that sometimes, surprises don’t have the expected positive outcome that a person is looking for; something Dan and Sylvie, unfortunately, discovered for themselves. Sylvie thought she knew her husband thoroughly, but to her surprise, she learned that there was a lot that she didn’t know about Dan. When family secrets were on the verge of being exposed, Sylvie and Dan became stressed to the max. Marriage isn’t always easy, as most couples find out, but then again, nothing worthwhile and precious usually is. Loving someone is looking for the good in that person, and never losing sight of what they mean to you. Surprise Me is a well-written and thoroughly enjoyable read. Thank you, Dial Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

Long.... I ultimately liked the story line and message — just took a bit too long and too many roads to get there. Enjoyed My Not So Perfect Life much more than this one.

Waste of time. I thought this was going to be a fun, easy and quick read. Please spare your time! Save yourself. I’ve never written a review before but I feel I need to this time because the book is terribly boring. It barely has a plot the first half of the book and once it finally does pick up, it’s not even good. Don’t read!
