I have enjoyed all of the other SEP audiobooks I have "read," but the characters in this one are unlikeable and the story is silly. The worst part is that this one cost two credits, which I noticed afterward.
This author is my favorite since listening and walking go so well together. I am so saddened to learn that the narrator Anna fields \kate Flemming died a few years ago. She was the greatest. This book has fantastic characters and storyline. A little slow at first but you won't be sorry. Also, this is a series not to be missed.
I'm a 47 year old mom of two young girls. Just recently discovered young adult fiction, as well as dystopian novels.
I read this book when it was first published years ago, and loved it then. Imagine my delight when I found it on Audible! If you like romances that go deeper and broader and really give you context about the characters, this is for you. My only complaint is that you don't get to see more of Dallie and Francie being happy, but other than that, the story is 10 stars in my book. As far as the Audible version, I was a little let down. The narrator did the men well, but I felt that Francie's voice didn't fit her character as a self-made woman of spirit and grit. I believe it was mirrored after Scarlet O'Hara in GWTW, which is referenced in the book, and it just didn't ring true for a modern woman.
I really enjoy character growth, and Francie certainly grows! Given her beginnings, that's a really good thing. I enjoyed the humor that accompanied it.
Not the first book I've read in this series and decided to go back to beginning.
Day dreaming book lover!
Didn't like this one very much. I love SEP but this one was written before enlightenment of treatment of children/women. Sorry about that.
A little slow at first but it got better and better loved it !!!!
12 step program please. I am addicted to Audible! I love trashy sexy books, award winning novels and everything between. Bring it!
Yes, I've listened to several SEP books and I always enjoy them. This book is no exception. I liked it enough, I just didn't love it. In other words, I wasn't using every free second I had to finish it. I think I slept through a bit of it and didn't bother to rewind because I knew I had not missed any crucial developments. It was an OK listen.
The characters are all selfish and one dimensional. They have some minor redeeming qualities but overall I didn't care for either main character.
I listened to Simply Irresistible some time ago which i believe is the last SEP book to this series and I loved that book. It followed grown up Ted's life. I wanted to read Fancy Pants because of that book. So I did, and now I've satisfied a minor curiosity.
SEP and Anna Fields are an awesome combination. I thought this book was really great. I enjoyed the story of Dally and Francesca. It drug on a bit at times, to the point where I was like, GET TOGETHER ALREADY!! But as always, SEP does not disappoint.
