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.
Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...
i liked this book better than most in its category. intelligent and appealing ... i would recommend. might even listen to it again.
Such a feel good story. I truly enjoyed listening to it. This one caught my attention so much that I found myself walking around the house with my ipod on, which never happens.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
This the first Sophie Kinsella book I listened to and found it to be funny and easy to listen to. This book did not disappoint me although I thought the story line was a bit far fetched, but it was entertaining all the same. The book would have scored 5 stars if the loves scenes were a bit more descriptive. I hate it when lots of sexual attraction is described between a couple. Then when the couple actually get together the scene is written off "with they kissed and then afterward" descriptions. Roslyn Landor was outstanding as the reader and really made the story come to life.
Absolutely delightful Brit lit. Sophie Kinsella creates wonderful stories. Slightly slow start but eventually gets moving.
