I LOVE this book. Usually Sophie Kinsella is a little harsh in embarrassing her heroines and it's kind of frustrating. But this book is a winner. I love Kate Reading as the narrator, and have actually bought more books with her as the narrator because she has such a great voice. The character of Emma is written so well and I just find her endearing. It is one of my favorite audiobooks and I even bought it the second time when I switched from an iPhone to a droid, just so I could have it on this phone too. Definitely listen!
I just thought it was so funny! I kept laughing spontaneously both at work and at home, to the point where my co-worker, and my husband wondered what was so funny.
Some things reminded me of Bridget Jone's Diary. Mostly just the premise of a woman's secrets
If you want a quick funny read to lighten your mood, this is it!
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
It is pretty high.
Watermelon, Can Anybody hear me?, etc. Anything by Marian Keyes
Nope, fun all the way through
C'mon, now. This question isn't really fair. In this genre, it's the best, but it can't really be compared to Atlas Shrugged, Anna Karenina, or Gone With the Wind. Apples and oranges.
I like Emma. She's funny, sweet, and smarter than she gives herself credit for being.
Her voice is lovely and she has a surprisingly good American accent.
Can you keep a secret? The given title suits the novel perfectly.
This is an excellent read when you don't want anything too heavy or too stupid. Very fun.
I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.
Not as amusing as I've got your number, but still an enjoy listen. The charactere were not as likable and engaging.
I giggled my way through this book - a funny Bridget Jones-like heroine, toe-curling situations that just make you want to shudder and laugh out loud at the same time, and a lovely, implausible love story too. The ending was a bit abrupt though - almost a "Deus Ex Macchina" type sudden solution for everything. Kate Reading is a magnificent narrator and made the book come alive.
This story was so funny and so far fetched that I could actually imagine it happening to me. I will never, EVER again spill my guts to a perfect stranger on an airplane no matter where I am going or under what circumstances. This cured me from blabbering just because I'm in a situation where I probably will never see someone again. Ha!
Was it Kahlil Gibran who said 'it's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt'? Wise man. Very wise.....
Lissy because she always saw both sides of a story and remained calm but you wanted her in your corner when it came time for it.
Jamaya - she made her sound like the "rich kid" she was.
So far everything I've listed to from Sophie Kinsella I have enjoyed, haven't been let down yet.
This book may have turned me off of all movies in that 'romantic comedy' genre forever! It gripped me and kept me engaged from the beginning to the end, taking me through a whole range of emotions, more than any movie has ever done. Sure, it was sometimes predictable. Some of it was a little over-the-top; why would a CEO be taking magazines to the archive room himself? But you just KNEW that he'd walk in the door right then. And other times, there was an unpredictable turn of events. Quite a rollercoaster ride. I can't wait for my next one!
You will laugh out loud and people will try to have you committed. I am so very glad that I listened to this in my car because I laughed at this way too hard!! The performance was amazing, the inflection was spot on, I felt like I was in the actual story. I love Sophie Kinsella and will continue to read and listen to her books.
