Book Review | Double Click
Title: Double Click
Author: Lisa Becker
I enjoyed Click: An Online Love Story so I was excited for the chance to read the sequel. I immediately felt like I was back in the fun world of Renee, Shelley, and Ashley. I love when a sequel manages to capture the same feel as the first book while keeping it it’s own story and Double Click has done that.
One of the hardest things to write is dialogue. It’s hard to not make a character sound cheesy or cliche while giving them all distinct voices so they don’t sound like one person talking to him or her self. Lisa Becker faced a big challenge when attempting a book entirely in email format. All it has is dialogue, but she still manages to give each character a very distinct voice.
With the first book, Click: An Online Love Story, it took a little bit to get used to the format. I had to try a little harder to get to know the characters and keep them straight in my head since all I had to go with was what they said. But after a few chapters they became real and it was effortless. This time around, it was even more so. As soon as I read the first email I was back in with each individual character and I didn’t have to think about it. There were only a handful of times where I had to glance at the email heading to make sure it was from the person I was thinking it was from, and that was usually only when a subject had suddenly changed.
This is a quick, fun read full of lovable characters. I’m hoping that there will be a third book so we can see Renee’s wedding and how she adjusts to life with Shelly living in another state. I’d definitely read it.
