This has to be one of the worst books I've listened to. It moved so slow - it was all I could do to make it to the end. In fact I ended up skipping large chunks just to get to the end hoping that the ending would make it all worth while... that wasn't the case. I got really tired of the main character whining and rationalizing her life as a door mat and a cheater. Its written as a long winded monolog in her head - which is not an interesting place to be.
I had a hard time identifying with the chaaracters. They were young, self-centered, socialites in NY. I dind't hate it but it wasn't one of my favorites.
I loved this book! I cannot wait to read Darcy's version in Something Blue even though I am not a big fan of her character. This was a great chick lit and made working out a lot more easier since I had to finish this book! I wish something blue was not an abridged version! I highly recommend this book!
When I decide to listen to a book I want to get to know the characters. It is so frustrating if the narration isn't well done. I'm shocked anyone could get thru this book due to this alone. Too bad, great story but the high pitched, screechy, whiny voice of main character made me turn it off. I never prefer a movie over a book except with this since I didn't get to listen to book. Waste of money for me. I like Emily Giffin as an author, simple stories, easy reads that flow well.
I loved this book!! Really!!! I have listened the Love the One Your With by the same author. That book would sometimes go on and on. I was afraid this one would too. But no, the author kept you entertained. It really took a long time to decide if this was something I wanted to listen to because of the subject matter- people cheating. I am not into cheating, but this was from a different point of view. This book was really entertaining. I normally listen to chick lit- faves are Stackhouse stories, Twilight, and Sophie Kinsella. So- if that's your style, you may like this too!! I hope so. I am now going to listen to the follow up story just to see what happens next.
I enjoyed this book and it did keep my attention, I got through it very quickly. The narrator was good and the story line very believable. Even though all the people in the book were very believable as real life they all seemed to annoy me. I found that I only liked about three people in the book and none of them were main players. Normally you relate most with the narrator telling the story but this time I could not relate well with any of them. This was still a good book and I will be getting more Emily Giffin books, I enjoy her writing style and story even if all the main people drove me crazy in this book.
This book is mildly entertaining, but the characters are not at all likeable. The heroine is completely pathetic. The hero is even worse.
