I'm about halfway through this story. I'm enjoying the concept of the story and the plot, however the too fast pace of the Narrator is making it very difficult to follow. The Narrator is good at shifting their voice for male characters, but the female characters and non-character specific dialog is read in a very monotone voice. In the future, I will make a point of avoiding books read by this Narrator.
The story was okay. Narration was difficult to get through. There were times when the narrator was reading so fast and sounded like she was rushing to finish the sentence. her voice was not pleasant to listen to either.
Interesting characters, snappy dialog, realistic dog.
If Jennifer Crusie can be said to have a formula this is it, fortunately it's a formula that I would buy over and over again. This book fulfils that formula and then some (you will never look at a water tower the same way again).
Not a perfect story but definitely a five star story
One of the books I re-listen to every so often.
The rhythm was slightly off. The whole package is not quite tight. But all in all it is worth the time to listen.
I really liked Phin, and I came to care about Sophie. I thought the setups for some of the sexual interludes were less than believable, but believability is not a priority with Crusie's stories.
The book was fun. Not her best, not her worst.
The first 30 minutes of the book were comprised of one unending sentence. No audible punctuation, no pausing and read very fast. There was no discernible differences between characterizations, making the dialogue very difficult to follow. It was exhausting.
It might be a cute story to read, but not to listen to.
Vapid characters, vapid storytelling, and lackluster narrating. Crusie certainly appears to have a following, but after this book, I'm not inclined to read her again.
Not with the same narrator, it was monotone, fast even at lowest speed and no real presentation. So disappointed.
Couldn't bear listening to get into story.
There are many good narrators, one who can tell the story and make
The listening an experience. She could have been reciting the periodic table it was that monotonous.
Wont buy anything with this narrator. Sorry, generally I have a tolerance but it was a frustrating experience.
Can't rate the story I couldn't stand the voice of the narrator. Not trying to be rude just not pleasant.
Live the life you have imagined...
I enjoyed the book, but I will not be looking for the rest of the series. Several characters were annoying, but I didn't mind the main ones.
Always busy - always in the car.
The interactions between Sophia and Phin - Amy and Davey hold their own and I love the voice of Wes. The supporting cast is great and Dilly is a hoot.
The characters - all of them - the humor and the love story(s)
I have not, but she did an amazing job on this story - bravo!
I loved the pool scene - he deserved to get his ass handed to him (but I still Love him) - the dressing up in the bar scene and the first time in a bed scene - all so f-ing funny.
Beware - if you are drinking anything while reading this book, you might spit it all over at certain parts of this book from laughing too hard. - Don't say I didn't warn you.
