Today I finished reading “An Abundance of Katherines“, it’s a book highly recommended by my special friend across the pond (of Doom!). At first I thought it was going to be a chick flick book;boy meets girl (probably called Katherine), girl falls in love with boy, and i dunno, some interesting event happened, probably a third person, and then they break up, but in the end they get back together and BAM, fornication! THE END! But yeah… it really wasn’t haha. The book had loads of winning themes that I’m interested in which makes it a win; a child prodigy, anagrams, foreign languages, maths (mmm indexed and xkcd), witty humour and a shed load of cheeky footnotes! Here’s what the back of the book says (speed typed by moi):
19 Katherines and counting…
When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton’s type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.
