    3. This book was SO MUCH FUN to read! Love it, and so glad there is a second book! This is book is for lovers over Bridget Jones, it has a bit of that feel.This whole book is only her e-mails. This would not be interesting nowadays, but this book is 9 years old. it is from the time we used e-mails to chat, in stead of WhatsApp or Facebook or whatever. Nowadays, this book would be her WhatsApp. So, you get all her chatting with her colleague, friends and family. And she chats a lot.You do know every [...]

    4. Fantastic book! I've added a new shelf to my library to fit books like this and calling it "IT" Chick Lit to encompass all the chick lit novels written in email format. With a tagline like 'ever wanted to peak inside someone else's email?', readers know you're in for gossip and a good time and Holly's Inbox does not disappoint! At 672 pages, Holly Denham's debut novel may seem a bit overwhelming but with the email format and quick pace, this novel is literally a breeze, fit to be finished in jus [...]

    5. ' 2 star review means 'it was okay', and that's what I thought of this book. It was just 'okay'. Too many pages, too many unnecessary emails and too much going on. In my opinion this book could have been over in half the pages. The book started off great but gradually began to falter as I quickly realised I found the characters confusing and the constant changing between email contacts made me feel really disengaged with the story, having to keep checking who was who. I really wanted to love thi [...]

    6. When I discovered this book at Barnes & Noble, I immediately added it to my TBR List. I was quite surprised to learn my library owned a copy and was first on the wait list. I couldn't wait to begin reading Holly's e-mails.I was looking forward to reading this as I read so many glowing reviews. I have to admit, around page 200 or so, I lost interest in Holly and her friends. I really wanted to know Holly's back-story with Toby. It took awhile for Holly to disclose to Trisha, her co-worker.I d [...]

    7. I can say that this book was better then I thought it was going to be. Actually WAY better then I thought it was going to be. And talk about funny. I was laughing so hard reading this that my eyes teared up to a point where I couldn't see to keep reading. The more I laughed the more the people around me laughed. I hope there's more to come as it appears from how the book ended.If your looking for something that will crack you up and is a fast paced read, you really need to get this book.For more [...]

    8. I came across this book in the library and being a sucker for swirly text, the jacket appealed to me. Meet Holly Denham, a receptionist who has managed to blag her job by embellishing her C.V. This book documents her relationships and conversations with her friends, family and colleagues, via her email in-box. While the format of this book may not be original, the characters never bore you, and I found myself cringing along with Holly. I will certainley be checking the inbox on the web in the co [...]

    9. Just saw a review of this in Entertainment Weekly. They call it the next Bridget Jones but the interesting thing is "Holly Denham" is really a man! Sounds like fun :)Well, it really was fun! I loved this book! First of all, it's so different since the whole thing is told through emails. It's quite long but it's a quick, easy read; actually hard to put down. It really is the new Bridget Jones! I love British characters. If you like chick-lit, I highly recommend Holly's Inbox.

    10. Don't be turned off by this book's size - it's an incredibly quick read. I read the majority of it sitting by a pool in about 3 hours. Cute, entertaining (I must admit I giggled out loudd more so as the book went on), but I must say the lack of character description made it so I wasn't left wanting more at the end.

    11. This has got to be the funniest book I've read in a loooooooooong time. Honestly, I could not stop laughing. There was not a boring page. It is utterly absurd and emotional and completely messes with your head. By the end, everyone is not who you thought they were in the beginning.Really, it was great. I loved it.

    12. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I want to read the sequel, but it's not available in the states and bookdepository is out-of-stock. Bah.It's like a soap opera of e-mails that you can't look away from. :)

    13. Dit was, back in 2007, een heerlijk boek. Dat ik hem nog steeds in gedachten heb en sinds vandaag pas weet dat er een #2 is zegt al genoeg!

    15. As a fan of books such as Bridget Jones Diary, Meg Cabot's The Boy Next Door and Boy Meets Girl, I had already read a variety of books that use the email, or epistolary format in telling the story. While I like the playful way that this style shows the development of a relationship, there does seem to be some advantage to the author jumping in from time to time to guide the story. In the case of Holly's Inbox, all we get for the story comes directly from emails. Over half of the novel (which alt [...]

    16. Holly is a new receptionist at a huge, bustling bank. She’s totally lost and in over her head, but things start looking up when she makes friends with some of her coworkers, finds old friends there, and even starts dating a handsome VP. Mixed in with e-mails with all of them are messages with her crazy family and best friends, a gay man and a… “promiscuous” girl. Soon, though, things begin falling apart for Holly at her new job when she gets dumped, gets back-stabbed, and an old flame jo [...]

    17. I needed that. If you're looking for some light reading, this is your book. I have to admit, I wasn't too thrilled at first, and I still find some parts a bit problematic, but the characters grew on me, and the book flows really well. I love epistolary books, so this one was right up my alley. I loved getting to know the characters through their emails, and all the snark definitely improved my reading experience. There's one character who's just a B from Apartment 23, and I would have liked to u [...]

    18. I was really excited to read this book, but it didn't quite meet my expectations. This book was about Holly, who started a new job at a finance/banking company and it's a look at her inbox at this new job. I love books in the format of emails back and forth, but this book had more gaps and things you had to "fill in" for yourself between emails than most others I have read in this format. There was also a lot you didn't find out about the main character until halfway or even further in the book. [...]

    19. When I told a friend that the format of this story was that it was told through emails, he said that sound awful and then I pointed out that I chose to read the book after reading about it in Entertainment Weekly. So I read this bloated novel that started out as a cute idea, Have you ever wanted to peek into someone else's inbox? Unfortunately it just went on too long for me. I kept reading so I could see how it turned out but it was over 600 pages later that I finally felt satisfied with this t [...]

    20. I can appreciate a light and fluffy beach read, but this one doesn't even make the cut in that category. It's long and rambling, filled with dumb innuendo and pithy exchanges. And I find the whole premise of using your work email exclusively for so much inappropriate communication pretty unrealistic. I would have given it one star, but the story finally picked up in the last quarter of the book, and it ended stronger than it began. Holly Denham could have benefited from a much harsher editor.

    21. Off the chart funny, and emotional. You will stay up all night reading this book. The pages fly by because of the format i.e. email. Can't wait to see what happens in the next book!!If you like this book you will probably enjoy the following two books that this one reminded me of1- Diary of a mad bride- Laura Wolf2- Diary of a mad mom to be - both of these books are written in a very entertaining format similar to the above 3- Can I get your number by Sophie Kinsella told a lot in text makes the [...]

    22. I'm not sure why I stuck with this one. Credit where credit is due, the author managed character development and plot in an all email form and that in itself was a neat change of pace. I didn't care for the storyline and I didn't find it to be funny. Consider it personal preference - not my cup of tea but not horrible. But what was the point of the Pregnant Pam character??

    23. Uit! Eindelijk! Ik heb drie en een halve week gedaan over een boek van zeshonderd pagina's dat helemaal in mailvorm is geschreven. Dat is niet van mijn gewoonte. Op zich was het een leuk boek, hoewel ik met momenten gruwelde van de vertaling. Ik had ook het gevoel dat het einde nogal snel snel ging. Dat terwijl het begin van het boek maar bleef aanslepen en er toen helemaal niets gebeurde. Boe.

    24. This is a one of a kind novel. A light hearted page turner with a narrative that is completely written by way of emails - 700+ pages of email communication that tell Holly's story. And to think I chanced upon this book in a books by weight sale and nearly didn't pick it up. What a delightful read!

    25. This too was super fun as the second book — though I must say it was kinda flat a great deal of the time. I still love Holly and her ammmmazing friends ❤️❤️Reading the series is so good in terms of getting a hang of emailing techniques. Wanna know how to pass zingers without talking trash? Learn from the best ;)

    26. I am usually easily pleased with a book and usually love every book I read. I did like this book however I did find it slow moving. I found there were unnecessary e-mails and I didn't like the swapping between characters. Overall it was okay but not great.

    27. DNF. I thought I would like the idea of nothing but emails for the content of the book, but I didn't. The main character could have been great - very Bridget Jones. I think the storyline has potential, I just didn't like the disjointed email format.
