Cocktails For Three

Long before Sophie Kinsella wrote the Shopaholic series, she already wrote many novels under her real name Madeleine Wickham. She's been asked by many people why she writes books under two names, she said it's simply because the books style are different.

This book tells about three smart and successful women who work in a fashion magazine in London. They have a monthly ritual to hang out together in a bar and to share the cocktail and the gossip. They all have certain problems just like us and they see each other to talk about the ups and downs of their life.

A very simple story compared to the Shopaholic series. Shopaholic series are far more fun while this stand alone novel is very 'light'. The characters, the flow and the ending are very predictable. But if you are tired with complicated books, grab this one and read it. Sometimes it is nice to read a simple book so instead of thinking while reading, this time we only need to read, that's all.

This book had already been translated by PT Gramedia Pustaka Utama on June 2011.

Banyak yg bilang buku ini beda banget dengan Sophie Kinsella, mungkin karena itu namanya dibuat beda ya mbak. Penasaran pengen baca, covernya segar, saya lebih suka cover versi Gramedia ketimbang aslinya :)

@mia: iya, buku ini sederhana banget, jauhhhh beda dibanding Shopaholic series yg terkadang kelewatan konyolnya, hehe...memang penulisnya sengaja pakai 2 nama karena jenis buku2 yg ditulisnya memang dibikin beda.
