My sister and I listened to this on a road trip and died laughing. It is a funny book, but we laughed more at this outrages female character. Her insecurities and obsession with food are ridiculous, but you will still enjoy listening. Without giving away to much, the Krispy Kreme foreplay scene was one of the most absurd things I've ever listened to. I gave this four stars, not to be too critical, but because it wasn't anything to write home about.
This is a light hearted rom-com of a book. Maybe a good read if you've recently read something heavy or technical!
This is so sad, this story and the characters have so much potential to be a great audiobook if only the narrator was more talented. There are so many characters and a narrator that can modulate their voice and actually act out the characters would have been preferred. That "he said", "she said" every line is very off putting and ruins the dialogue. I am sorely disappointed, and would actually love to listen to this again with a more talented narrator.
The characters, they were very funny
The flat tone for each character, I'm sorry but she is a very poor narrator.
Like I said I would love to listen to it again with a better narrator, she really ruined this story for me.
I have read this book in paperback and listened to it in audible, multiple times in both formats. It's just the kind of book that you can get lost in and enjoy the fun.
The performer is okay, but i imagined some of the characters to have a bit of a different voice. It's good though. Doesn't detract from the story.
I recommend for fun and lighthearted entertainment!
This is such a great Crusie book- haven't found any other author that can mix drama, comedy, suspense and spicy love like her. This is quick witted and captivating.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
Funny book - a classic romantic comedy that gets better every time. Jennifer Crusie writes the most engaging characters - people I would like to meet.
Bet Me has a realistic plot, interesting characters (family and friends), mild to moderate sex scenes, no violence and lots of laughs.
I loved this book!! The characters were lovable and the dialogue is just hilarious! I can't say enough good things about it. As a fellow chubby chick who got the handsome guy, I say, "You go, Minnie!"
