Of course we could guess the outcome right away, but it was still fun seeing how it got there. Interesting characters kept it going. My only complaint is that the ending seemed to drag on.
This is my first book by Phillips and I was very impressed. My interest was held the whole time and the narrator did a great job with the different charactors. Although the some of the scenes are indeed predictiable it is still a refreshing book. This book gives a true meaning to the saying that love is blind....sometimes it is right under your nose.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I think it is one of those books better heard than read...especially with this reader. She is wonderful with great comedic timing and delivery. I laughed out loud listening to this on a plane the other day and several people turned to see what was so funny. Light and predictable but absolutely delightful anyway!
What I wanted was a funny, romantic comedy to listen to while I ran. I got what I wanted. Isn't it nice to get exactly what you expect out of a book? The narrator is very good, she does a pretty descent job of a male voice. And that's really the hard part of listenning to a book, isn't it? The voice you may have applied to a character is decided away from you, your imagination slightly handicapped by anothers impressions. But that's okay, the narrator did a splendid job of reading this story.
The story is cute, the characters are adorable (even the flat ones)and it is a great escape.
Loved it. Laughed out loud and enjoyed the writing and the narration was great. A romantic escape. Excellent dialog. I have 3 of her audios and loved them.
A true chic lit
Romantic but not sickeningly sweet. several laugh out loud funny parts.
I enjoyed it so much, I would rewind and listen to dialogue over again.
If you enjoy romantic comedy, this is a must read.
P. S. My name is Deborah, my husband Tom did Not write this review.
I wasn't really expecting too much from this listen, but was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I liked the characters as well as the plot, though the ending is a bit perdictable. A very entertaining and enjoyable listen
Not a bad beach book, but I found this particular narrator's rendition annoying and distracting. She read men's words in a "deep" voice, like if you were reading to a child, and children's voices in a "tiny" voice; again, like you would read a bedtime story to a child, trying to do the voices yourself. The narrator of the Harry Potter novels carries this technique off well, but not this narrator. Read it instead.
