For some reason I had a hard time getting into this book. Other Sophie Kinsella books have been a snap for me...this one seemed a slow start, but the book is worth a listen...
I was sceptical about this book but found that I really enjoyed it. The narrator was excellent. The material was funny and refreshing. Not the same old same old.
I was surprised that this was my favorite of the Kinsella books. Not only was this book a fun, light story, but it reminded me of myself- balancing career and the need to relax. I think of this book after the fact when I remember to stop and smell the flowers. I enjoyed the narration as well.
Entertaining throughout the first half. After that, the main character's indecisiveness becomes repetitive and annoying. Very good narration.
Loved it. Reader was excellent although the male counterparts were no match to the female vocalizations. Reader added color and emotion to the characters so there was no problem defining them. Humoristic situations the heroine must overcome were a stitch. Having the heroine tell the story was a nice touch since you have the inside scoop of what she is thinking as she confronts situations and when she must make a life decision. Light listening, funny story but worth it.
I'm going from chapter to chapter in life. Some are definitely better than others!
I loved every minute of listening to Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella. I was looking forward to another great listen with The Undomestic Goddess but found the book disappointing.
The story line behind Undomestic Goddess was just plain dumb, and way, way too predictable.
I will try another of Kinsella's books. I just hope it is a better listen than The Undomestic Goddess.
A gadabout with no room for heavy books, so love the audio ones.
I've read, and now listened to the book and it was much funnier as I read it. I just don't think the narrator projected the funniest bits as they were writtten. Shame.
I'd heard an audio version of this book before and was really looking forward to hearing it again. Unfortunately, it looks like this isn't the same version, and the reader is terrible! I've heard about 2 minutes and I don't want to listen to the rest. She has the completely wrong voice for this book.
