This book was so hard to put away, it is hard to say what I loved best- I guess the whole thing. This is definitely a keeper and I will read it again and again. The best book I have read in a while and I read or listen to books constantly. This was a different genre of the types of books I read and this one is definitely a wonderful change.
Poppy, of course! Her outlook on life and her love of life, although she did let people use her too much by trying to make those around her happy. And her views of public property if an item is found in the "bin". Sam comes in as a close second!
Now that is a hard question to answer because I loved them all. I suppose I could say the church scene at the ending of the book.
Yes, when Sam texted all the wedding guests and she ran from the church to find him outside.
The friend who recommended this book said it all- "I will never be able to hear this narrator and picture any other character than Poppy- she was Poppy!" Jayne Entwistle is Poppy Wyatt. She did such a great job, I can see Poppy very clearly in my mind and like my friend, any other character she reads will always be Poppy. Thank you Jayne for all the enjoyment and laughter you brought by bringing this character (an all the others too) to life.
The conversations and situations are simply funny. I'm so amused especially the "footnotes". It is romantic without being too cheesy and over the top. It will make you smile especially if you are feeling blue. A must read.
Can You Keep A Secret?
You may not like the voice of the narrator initially but it will grow on you because the story makes you forget about the rest. Worth every credit or dollars you paid for.
Mother. Wife. Daughter. Friend. Sister. Hard Worker. Grateful. Happy. Peaceful. Bassoon Player. Reader.
Poppy is a spirited, impulsive,yet well meaning character who delights the reader with her flaws! This is a fun and easy read with great narration and a good pace.
I am an elementary teacher. I love to cycle, swim and walk my dog. I enjoy quilting when I can sit still. I'm learning to Scuba Dive.
It is great hearing the voices given to the characters.
It is a fun love story. I love Kinsella (Wickham), I always thoroughly enjoy her novels.
She can certainly make changes in her voice to show different characters. It's amazing!
The longer the story went on, the more I liked it! A lovely surprise from this author. Considering the context of the story and genre, I just didn't expect to like it so much.
Worth the credit!
The lead, Poppy. Had me laughing the WHOLE time. Her voices were great and she had the attitude which is hard to find in an audiobook sometimes.
As with all Sophie Kinsella books, you kind of have to suspend reality and accept ridiculousness, but I thought this book was really cute and sweet.
I like the "love story for the digital age" aspect of it and thought the main character, Poppy, had some funny moments. The constant texting really established their relationship and affirmed why they would ever get together. I also liked that it was mostly a PG story. I don't mind a little smut in my chick-lit, but it wasn't necessary in this one.
Typical of a Kinsella character, there are times when you are asking yourself why Poppy does what she does or jumps to conclusions, but it was generally a fun ride. The narrator was pretty great too.
I would recommend this to any friend wanting an easy pool / beach side book.
I bought this book on a whim having heard that the author was good, but this book was not for me. The narrator had a heavy british accent and it was a slow listen. I have pushed it to the back burner for a time when I am between good books!
No, I read widely and will continue to read and listen to books of many genres.
The narrator's accent wasn't what I am use to.
I have yet to finish the book so I am not sure, but I don't see why not, I just wouldn't be a viewer.
