I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.
My absolute favorite! It is wonderful dark comedy, almost gallows humor.
Darcy at the beginning--- don't we all know a Darcy? Her sense of entitlement, and delusions of grandeur are hysterical!
Yes, and I love her narration skills. This is the best one I've heard!
To laughter, when she is giving Markus a hard time on her birthday...
I have probably listened to this book a dozen times since I bought it.
Somewhere in the middle. It wasn't the worst thing, but there were parts that were dull or annoying.
It was good. A nice ending to the plot line.
She didn't try too hard, it was a nice balance for each of the characters.
No - it was your standard chick-flick.
Not the great American classic novel but an entertaining sequel nonetheless
I did enjoy that the author switched points of view in this novel and did a good job doing so.
Emily Griffin is such a good author and she truly shows her understanding of differing personalities.
I got through the first half of the book with a great dislike for Darcy, being so superficial and self absorbed, but as the book goes on you cant help but route for her.
There were moments where I caught weird looks in public, as i realized i was laughing out loud. Thankfully, I was at home when the book evoked moments of tears. I couldn't put the book down, so to speak. and as much as i was uplifted by the ending, i didnt want it the end to come.
Book Review: Incredibly whiny in the first half of the book, the protagonist, Darcy, does go through a metamorphosis halfway through, making the listen bearable. If I hadn't read reviews stating this, I don't think I could have finished it. If Emily Giffin only made the first half of the book more like the first 20% of the book, I would have enjoyed this much more.
Narrator Review: The narrator reminded me of a character from Mad Men - overly affected voice used by film actresses of that era. Somehow, she made the whiny Darcy even whinier. It took awhile for me to get used to her voice and I would have preferred someone who spoke more naturally.
I loved Something Borrowed and was so excited to "read" the follow up. I was disappointed in the narrator and the book started out very whiny and I found myself annoyed with Darcy's character. However, in the end I enjoyed it and thought the author tied up all the loose ends in the end.
