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.
I love to walk and run listening to audiobooks
The usual Sophie Kinsella cheerful chick lit which I have come to love. I make no apologies to the highbrows arching at the mere thought of a lite book. But this book is laugh out loud funny. It’s entertaining. I enjoy Kinsella’s ability to paint ditzy yet spunky and surprisingly intelligent women who have messy lives but somehow charm a dream boy. It’s highbrow Barbara Cartland and I highly recommend!
yes I would
I thought the story was so not interesting or catching at first; but as I kept on reading it, my interest started growing, and it got to the point that I just couldn't stop reading it at the end. Really funny and touching at the same time. I enjoyed it.
Fun idea. Can feel the challenges.
Walking through the woods
I found the book itself dragged after a while but picked back up at the end
The characters were very likable and believable.
The woods texting!
Didn't want it to end!
I agree with the previous reviewer who compared this Kinsella novel to the classic film "Bringing Up Baby." I can just see Sam Roxston played by Cary Grant, and Poppy Wyatt played (to perfection) by the amazing Katharine Hepburn. Its a zany story that is carried along by strong characters, and I find myself laughing out loud as I commute to and from work. This is my first experience with Kinsella, and I am very glad I took a chance to opted for a new author. The British narrator was at first a bit hard on these American ears, but I soon grew used to her voice and mannerisms. Thoroughly enjoyed the story. :)
Absolutely. (Already have, actually!) Sophie Kinsella's heroines are always wonderfully flawed, but there's just something special about Poppy. She gives in to all those little impulses real-world people fight, and the results are hilariously heartwarming. Listening to a Sophia Kinsella novel never fails to put me in a great mood.
I loved the texting scene in the woods at the conference. It just seemed cheesily magical.
Poppy Wyatt. She's impulsive in a way I wish I could be but have the sense to refrain from, and I loved cringing at her missteps that worked out in the end.
The Shopaholic books have been my go-to guilty pleasure reading for several years now, but somehow I enjoyed I've Got Your Number even more.
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
This story was well-paced and had very good characters. It was funny and touching at times. It took a look at modern relationships and I found myself cringing at the actions of the main character at times and really quite concerned about her. I would have awarded five stars if it had not been for the way in which the ending was handled.
