UNPREDICTABLE is one of those books you laugh all the way through, send to your best girlfriend for her birthday, and carry around in your beach bag the whole summer long.
The book opens with the heroine, Sophie, stealing her ex-boyfriend’s socks in a slightly twisted but hysterically funny plot to win him back. Sophie is willing to go to any lengths to help her guy see what he’s missing, including fooling his uber-perky new girlfriend into thinking Sophie is the city’s hottest psychic.
Eileen Cook’s writing is funny, I mean, laugh out loud funny. There were several times as I read this book that I was cracking up so hard I could barely continue reading. (You know that feeling, when you’re sitting by yourself in a coffee shop or a beach chair, and you can’t help giggling out loud, even though you’re pretty sure you look like a complete lunatic.)
Eileen’s heroine, Sophie, is so likeable, quirky and charming, you’ll wish you had her for a friend. UNPREDICTABLE is smartly written, and offers hilarious insight into men, women and how they interact when they’re in love, falling out of love, or not exactly sure how they feel.
Despite the fact that she’s a bit on the nutty side (and who among us hasn’t gone off her rocker at least once for love?) I pulled for Sophie to win back her man, and come out of her self-made disaster unscathed.
This has been one of my favorite books this year, and I can hardly wait until they make a movie out of it.

Great review, Lisa! I have to agree with your “laugh out loud” assessment. And I am SOOO excited to see how the movie turns out and compares to the book!!
I really LOVED the book, found it hard to write about it without giving away all the funny parts 🙂
This is one of those books you just tell your girlfriends, “hurry up and read this so we can talk about it…”
Another day without having read Unpredictable. *sigh*
“knock knock knock” Hello – Ms. Reisman*? Where is my #(@*#^@)! order???
*for you non-Canadians, Heather Reisman is the CEO of Chapters/Indigo from where I ordered both Unpredictable and SWWC.
I’m waiting for my copy to arrive!
By the way, I’m really enjoying this blog.
Thank you so much for your order. We promise to have this fabulous book delivered to you ASAP, and are expecting a large shipment appropriate to Unpredictable’s new bestseller status.
Your patience is greatly appreciated. I read it myself, and I think it’s pure genius.
Ms. Heather Reisman
Thanks so much — we love it! This blog has been an amazing experience for all of us 🙂
Love the letter from Heather, Lisa! And everything you said about Unpredictable is true.
WOOHOO Eileen and UNPREDICTABLE!! This is JUST the beginning…
Why feel free to call Heather Joanne. I notice she didn’t pick me as one of her Heather picks. First no Oprah and now this. yeesh.
Eileen, I’m appalled. I can’t believe both of those women dissed you like that!
Isa anyone else a little worried about the #9 comment (a pingback?) What in the world is a spanking exposition?
Do world spanking leaders come together (spankologists?) to discuss the latest in paddles and switches?
I’m sure Oprah’s just been busy — I have no doubt Her “O”liness will call you any day. She does, after all, have excellent taste… 🙂
Can’t wait to read “Unpredictable”!! It sounds like a great read.
I WAS a little concerned about #9…??? Let me know if you find out anything… :~)
My eyes read UNPREDICTABLE and the scenes play out on a mental movie screen!
What’s with the spanking thing? I guess this week things are…Unpredictable…
Joanne–I read today’s first and then this so had no idea who you were talking about!! Glad I know now. And Amy–we’re so glad you’re hanging over here and enjoying it!
I know just what you mean!!!
