Rowell does an exquisite job of drawing you into Attachments. She writes the characters in a way that makes you feel as though you know them personally. Attachments is an engaging love story; an IT tech falls in love with a woman by reading the emails she writes to her best friend. The fact that he falls in love with her personality, but she's oblivious to this, yet finds him attractive anyway, makes it fun to read. The way each character adapts, who they are, and what they want before finding love is intriguing. The root to how this love story forms may seem a little odd, but the way it ends makes it the complete opposite. This is by far one of the most well written love stories I have ever read.
