This is the BEST Shopaholic ever. Rosalyn Landor is the perfect narrator for this book, and should be on a very short list for narrating the (hopefully) NEXT in the series. If you love the Shopaholic books, this one is FAB! Get it today!
If you love Becky this one won't disappoint. My only complaint would be the narration. Although it was very good, after listening to the first 3 Shopaholics Emily Gray was Becky to me. I really missed her on this one as I did with Shopaholic & Sister. I also found the pronunciation of "Suze" rather annoying. In the other books it's "Sues", in this one "Suzie". It's a small thing but it really distracted me. Overall fun listen with good narration, just not the same Becks I've grown to love.
Narrator? + Suzie? + SOLD!I thought for sure that:1. (one of my favorite narrators) Roslyn Landor, who I thought would have a much, much older voice than Becky would have!2. Suze being called Suzie would be too unsettlingbut, once again, these original distractions became meaningless as my love for this wonderful story and the narration turned into pure - well - FAB!
Everything, but for some reason it was nice to have a little less focus on shopping.And... things like this... " BECKY'S ONLINE BANK FOR GIRLS" get me laughing out-right!
Better man voices. Excitement. More intelligent, down-to-earth Becky.
I normally don't listen to books a second time.
When you read a book it's difficult to hear or feel what the character it trying to communicate. I loved that Rosalyn read the entire series. I don't like when they change narrator mid series.l
I love most books that transport me to another time and place & books that uplift my spirit.
I love these books, however, I do NOT love the changing Narrators. A series should keep the same narrator throughout, especially when the current narrator does not double check the series to see how names are pronounced and the characters are read. Ex. Suzie, is Sooze and always has been from day 1. I miss the last narrator who read Shopoholic & Sister.
Other than that, the story continues on about Rebecca's never ending shopping desires and must haves. Amusing and entertaining. I like to listen to these books in between deep and heavy storylines.
I was very surprised to hear this book. I've never heard an audio book before but I thought I'd give it a try... I was very surprised to hear the British accent, it's nice though. I thought it sounded a bit robotic and choppy. I'll have to hear it more to maybe get used to it. Just not what I was expecting at all.
I've listened to and enjoyed the others - narrator on the 1st three was terrific, 4th not bad - this one terrible!!!! Hideous shock upon beginning to listen. Don't want to finish.
did the producer forget to audition the narrator for this actual book? It's such a disappointment to hear names destroyed. I won't abandon this one but the others have been far superior. I just love Becky's take on life and her rationalizations for her outrageous behavior! In each book I laugh out loud so frequently. I love it!
