Book Review: Shopgirl by Steve Martin

ShopgirlShopgirl by Steve Martin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"It's pain that changes our lives."

Steve Martin's book Shopgirl is a quick, engaging read. It is insightful and charming. I would have preferred to have the characters develop over time as opposed to Martin's in depth digressions on the character.

I'm not sure if I would have enjoyed the book as much as I did, had I not watched the movie first. The three main characters had distinct voices but I didn't feel that way for the supporting characters.

Other interesting quotes:

"She has learned that her body is precious and it mustn't be offered carelessly ever again, as it holds a direct connections to her heart."

"As Jeremy offers her more of his heart, she offers equal parts of herself in return."
