Will Becky ever be able to manage her money better?
What I Thought About This Novel
I thought this novel was easy to read and very interesting. A great page-turner.
The storyline is very believable as I personally know people like Becky who have bad spending habits.
Just like Becky, they are people out there who are choking with debt and still they find themselves swallowing more debt.
This novel has money lessons which anyone can learn from which are:
1. When in debt you should pay your debt
2. If you can’t pay your debt talk to your lenders and agree on a payment plan.
3. Avoid taking debt when you can, as debt makes you a slave to the credit company, and the credit company will be the master.
4. Use cash instead of credit cards.
5. Lies only provides a temporary fix to debts but before you know it, you will be caught.
This novel is such a great novel with a lot of humor. I liked the way the author included the letters from the credit companies requesting their money in the novel.
They made me laugh a lot whilst reading this novel
I can’t wait to read more of Sophie Kinsella novels.
I recommend this book anyone who wants to read about money or change the way they manage their money. There are good money lessons in this novel to be learned.
