This was funny, it engaged you through the story lines. You want to know what is going to happen next, Footnote: love to accent, and speed of the novel.
Technology is very much in our life, and this novel reflects it very nicely. Her inbox and phone is everything to her, she even falls in love over short messages.
Poppy, she is fun and silly.
When Poppy decides to write a roundrobin email to all company, and start getting replies she can not imagine.
Footnote: This is an enjoyable light read that keeps you smiling. Sophie Kinsella rarely disappoints.
When I first started this book, the narrator's voice grated on my nerves. She sounded so young and squeaky, and the main character annoyed me. And then I remembered: the main character of a Sophie Kinsella book always annoys me with her bad decisions at first, and then I grow to love her. This book is no exception.
The narrator's voicing of the main character really fits a young, somewhat insecure woman. More than that, that type of narration made the funny parts that much funnier. In the end, I really enjoyed it!
The antics and characters that are in this book are pure Sophie Kinsella. The quirkiness and resourcefulness of Poppy is only something that Sophie Kinsella could dream up! If you are a fan of Ms Kinsella's earlier works, like Can You Keep a Secret? and The Undomestic Goddess, then you will love love love this book!
This story was charming and once it cought you, the c hapters just flew. You wanted to know the next surprise. Lovely. Normally I love mysteries, but this was a delightful, happy change.
With several laugh out loud moments, the whole audio was entertaining and fun. The way technology has changed communication drove much of the plot which was interesting. Kinsella is insightful about human nature and relationships without moralizing.It was so enjoyable, I've got withdrawal and would love to read a sequel.

Yes! Kinsella does a wonderful job with character development. I appreciate the way that she allows the characters to develop over the course of the novel.
Jayne Entwistle is wonderful. I thought that she was the perfect narrator for a Kinsella book. She handles both male and female characters well.
The novel really centers on Poppy, so she is certainly the most memorable character. I liked the fact that she was a capable woman--professional, good job, etc., and yet she had issues with perception about herself and her friends and family.
I didn't give the story five stars because I thought that it was dragged out a bit at the end. Otherwise, I loved the book.
Sometimes you just need to read something light and silly. Though, for me, even something light has to be well written and well developed. Sophie Kinsella's new book fits the bill. Despite its wackiness, the plot had good twists and turns and the characters were sufficiently quirky and easy to like. The narrator did a good job, thought I didn't love her voice. Glad for the respite!
