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.
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.
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.
