"A delightful take on the mixed blessings of marital longevity."People

After ten years together, Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls, and they communicate so seamlessly they finish each other's sentences. They have a happy marriage and believe they know everything there is to know about each other. Until it's casually mentioned to them that they could be together for another sixty-eight years . . . and panic sets in.

They decide to bring surprises into their marriage to keep it fresh and fun. But in their pursuit of Project Surprise Mefrom unexpected gifts to restaurant dates to sexy photo shootsmishaps arise, with disastrous and comical results. Gradually, surprises turn to shocking truths. And when a scandal from the past is uncovered, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other at all.

With a colorful cast of eccentric characters, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit and charm, Sophie Kinsella presents a humorous yet moving portrait of a marriageits intricacies, comforts, and complications. Surprise Me reveals that hidden layers in a close relationship are often yet to be discovered.

Flat. Not my cup of tea ( )
  kakadoo202 | Apr 3, 2024 |
Pretty typical silly Sophie Kinsella novel. This one deals with a marriage in the middle of a comfortable, blah phase that our heroine decides to shake up with a few surprises.

Its not terrible, it’s not great. ( )

A classic Kinsella misunderstanding book but it just wasn't as endearing as her other protagonists ( )

Based on a ridiculous premise that almost made me stop reading very early on. However there was enough wacky behaviour and mystery to keep me going to the end. The last 10% of the book would have benefitted from extensive editing ( )

I've been putting off reviewing this for SO LONG which is silly because I keep talking about this book, too--the premise REALLY stuck with me, and philosophically, this might actually be the most thought provoking of Kinsella's books.

But anyone who knows my book tastes knows that Sophie Kinsella is my favourite author in the whole entire world (other than Gabrielle Zevin, of course, let's not get carried away.) I don't expect her to be thought provoking, but I expect to laugh out loud. And of course, this had me laughing out loud constantly.

Sylvie is a significantly different character to Kinsella's normal titles, perhaps more similar to later Becky-the-Shopaholic books, but I appreciated that she felt less as though she'd been picked up from other novels. I adored the kids so much. So so much.

This isn't the best Kinsella book (ahem, CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET?), but I think it's the best of her more recent books and I'm really glad to kind of see that evolution.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review (thank you, Dial, I think I literally cried tears when I received the invite!)
