I have never submitted a review before, but I feel compelled to warn others about this book! I found myself becoming very agitated with this character! This is the first time I've read or listened to a book in which I could not find one redeeming quality in the protagonist! Becky is one of the most unlikeable characters I've ever encountered! She has absolutely no insight! Even the shallowest of people possess some quality which endears them to others....not this one! Don't waste your time!
I loved the first one. I had to have the others right away. I have now been through them all and have throughly enjoyed everyone of them. Wonderful and funny.
This book is abolutely brilliant. I loved all three and am looking forward to the 4th. I was glued to each page and couldnt get enouhg, i was very happy to find out there were sequals. No, this isnt the next great american novel, and i am glad! its nice to read a fun book every now and again. Becky is my hero!!!!!
I was not sure when I started this book if I was going to like it. After all, overspending is not a fun situation to be in! But this was such a good story with a really good outcome. And I even learned a little about money management in the process. I really enjoyed the reader! I will look for more books done by her! She absolutely brought the story to life. I highly recommend this book!
I thought this book would never end. I kept given it just a little more time, but it never got better. The character was so annoying. I agree with the review from Alison, listen to "Can You Keep a Secret".
I found Becky pretty superficial at first. Her disaster of a life was difficult to relate to but near the middle, I finally connected. When her "true" talents came out, she was an enjoyable, real character.
Bridget Jones minus the charm....painfully long descriptions of shopping expeditions though the mind of an impossibly shallow, predictably stupid character... It actually made me feel physically sick to listen to.
Actually I wanted Becky to file bankruptcy and then just go away. The book was like reading a shopping list and dunning letters. In a book I was have just glanced at the letters, but had to hear each and every detail for each and every letter, each and everytime one came up. Gave it a try but couldn't stay interested even in an airport waiting for a flight. Could just be a generational thing, but Becky was 'so stupid' (one of her favorite phrases must have heard it a hundred times in an hour) she got no sympathy from me and I didn't find her funny.
