Review: "Click: An Online Love Story" by Lisa Becker
I've been out of the dating world for a long time, for more than ten years in fact, but back in the day online dating was just starting to become popular and I signed up for one of the more popular sites out there. I don't remember actually meeting someone in person as a result of that site (it wasn't long after I signed up that I met my now-husband) but I did have a few interesting online conversations with men that I met there. Since that time one person who is very close to me, and several more that I am acquainted with, have met their spouses online. It's becoming more and more common, and if you ask me, dating online make a ton of sense in this day and age. I was intrigued by the premise of Click, and couldn't wait to read it.
I got a lot more than I bargained for. Not only was Click a fun peek into the world of online dating, but it was absolutely hilarious. I read it in less than a day and I actually laughed out loud several times while I was reading it. My husband, who I was hanging out with at the time, kept asking me what in the world I was finding so funny. The decision to write it entirely in the form of e-mails was a wise one. Not only did it fit well with the online dating theme, but it made the story a fast and fun read.
I highly recommend Click to anyone who has ever ventured into the world of online dating, to anyone who has ever been curious about it, or to anyone looking for a light and funny summer read. Click will not disappoint. Thank-you to Chick Lit Plus Blog Tours for inviting me to participate in this tour.
