I LOVE the Shopaholic series! Once I get started, I can't put them down! However, I found this particular one to drag on a little too long. I still enjoyed it, but would have enjoyed it more had it been shorter.
You don't get this book for the mental stimulation or spiritual growth, but it is a fun read with a nice ending. If you like the others, you'll probably like this one, too.
I absolutely love this series and this one was soooo funny. Yes you want to scream at her for her stupidity but it is so funny. I love the narrator as well. She really has found Becks!!
finally, Becky stops her destructive constant lying! This is definitely the best of the series - hysterical situations and not the best choices, but not all those lies (well... a few by omission...) It was getting really aggravating, screaming at the radio, "No!! Don't say that!!!" How she could lie so often with no apparent remorse was starting to irritate. Ties the Knot had the humor. but Becky played more the straight role, surrounded by kookie friends that got her in scrapes. It provided many true laughs, and a few minutes of melting romance, too.
3rd in the series of Shopaholic books, I was afraid I would be disappointed, but was not. Witty and funny. I think the narrator did an excellent job on all three. I sincerely hope there are more Shopaholic books in the works.
This is my first "Shopaholic" book, and won't be the last. I found myself laughing outloud while listening because of the crazy way Becky Bloomwood thinks. And her shopping trip right before her best friends gives birth is priceless. I did get rather frustrated with Becky's lack of a spine--not being able to make a decision, or stick with one when she finally made it--but for the most part I found this book a very enjoyable diversion.
I've been a fan of the Shopaholic series for about six months now. I thoroughly enjoyed both Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Takes Manhattan, but I didn't want to wait another six months for the pocket book edition of Shopaholic Ties the Knot.
Therefore, I decided to opt for the audiobook version. The book itself is great, as good as the first 2 titles in the series. Emily Grey does a great job as a narrator and in playing the role of Becky. My only qualm is that the audiobook's publisher should have hired a man to play the male characters. Emily Grey's reading of characters like Luke is laughable at best.
Nevertheless, I recommend this audiobook for fans of the series.
This would have been an entertaining "read" but the reader was a snooze. Her predictable speech patterns for each character made the story dull and the pitch of her voice was at times irritating. Her monotone male characters were dreadfully portrayed. Skip this one.
Since of course she is getting a bit more mature in this story, it wasn't as fun as the other ones. I still enjoyed it though.
I found our shopaholic irritating. The jacket called it a fun romp, I couldn't make myself finsh the book (the only time this has happened).
