The story is silly, riddled with plot holes and hard to fathom.
How are Sophie and Amy connected to Clea? Almost sister-in-laws?
Is Clea paying them for the audition tape/documentary/movie making?
Why is Clea making her own audition tape?
Why is Sophie fixing up the farm house for Clea?
What does that have to do with making a quick audition tape?
Why is the town fixated on the possibility the audition tape/movie/documentary might have porn?
Why is Phin such an asshole?
Why does Sophie even like him?
Why does he like her?
Why did I pick this book to listen to?
Either I'm stupid and a poor listener or this book isn't well-written.
I also didn't like the narrator at all. She reads too fast and didn't create enough distinction between how she read Sophie and Phin's dialogue making them almost seem to be the same person.
Horrible. The story started off okay, but quickly went into a bad soft porn book. I quit after about half way. Disappointing.
The narrator was fine. The story was lackng.
A good romance with some fun characters. I particularly liked the banter between the main character & her man. Sadly disappointing if you bought it because it was in the erotic section. Still a good listen.
Is anyone else getting the Beijing Conspiracy as part two??? I've bought it twice and called customer service and they said they'd look into it. But I'm an audible addict and am bummed.
Stuff it in the Dumpster and forget about it!
There is no genre............A documentary is more riveting than this book was...............well as far as I got with it anyhow
Oh hell no!!!! She sounded like she was reciting the Flavors of Sundaes.......where Chocolate through Blueberry just all meld together. I truly thought she would drop dead.........I had hoped so at anyrate.........She hardly came up for air, and read so dam fast that you just could not Keep up!
Yes.........When I clicked to OFF button on my MP3 Player
The story could have been good, maybe, but with the Narration I will never know. I just can not subject myself to this torture. 5 hrs was way enough!
Yes.. It was very entertaining.
I laughed and hoped that all would work out well in the end.
Tell us about yourself!
This was a really good book. It took me a chapter or two to get into it but I was happy overall with this purchase. This was my first Jennifer Cruise book and I would read another.
The performance was just ok. The voices from the reader were great but the recording seemed very armature. You can hear pages turning, and it had an echo/microphone sound that is irritating.
Story line was weak. Felt no connection to any of the characters.
No problem with the narrator, it was the story.
The only redeeming quality was I only paid $6.95.
Don"t waste your time>
This hilarious, romantic book is a classic Jennifer Crusie story. It is fun to watch the relationship unfold between our heroine, Sophie Dempsey, the girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and the mayor, Phin Tucker, who may or may not be like all of the mean "town boys" that she has known in her life. I got drawn in with the great dialog and was really rooting for these two to make it! Fun, easy book to listen to -- great narration, great plot.
