The World of Alice D.

I'm here to express my deep love for literature through

reviews, pictures and everything else that comes to my mind while drinking coffee. Cheers.

P.S. I won't be adding books I read before 2010.

The Undomestic Goddess

The Undomestic Goddess - Sophie Kinsella

Thank God, I’ve come to an end of my Sophie Kinsella books. I’ve read 4 in total, when I was young and ignorant. 

In all 4 of her book that I’ve read, I found nothing but different variations of one big idiotic theme. In The Undomestic Goddess, she stays faithful to her cliche motivational themes, this one being something like STOP AND LOOK.

Although I agree with this particular cliche motivational sentence, I assure you it can be written much more intelligently and non-mainstream. 

This particular story is about a young female, who worked as a lawyer, screwed something up and ended up employed as a maid in some rich people’s place. The only thing I liked about this book is that the main character learns the joys of a simple life. It is a good theme but…

I really hate it when bad writers try to show a particular good theme and fail, resulting the theme being dull and idiotic.

Nevertheless, Kinsella can do much worse, like in The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic, which is her worst book. ( I’ll be writing a review on that later on). So, comparingThe Undomestic Goddess to that one, I’m giving it one and a half stars. (I put two because I couldn’t find a half a star).

Anyway, there are some people who enjoy these kind of books, and although I’m all for reading, I do hope that they will one day be introduced to real literature. Everybody reads trash literature sometimes, but come on people, evolve spiritually.
