Some authors and books are best heard. It makes the joy unfold in a totally different way than reading the print version. I have all of Ms. Kinsella's books safely (I hope) stored on my iPod.
Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite feel-good chick lit authors. Ms Kinsella, through her characters and story line, never fail to make me laugh. The story line, using a stolen engagement ring, cell phone, and using texting as a key means of communication, was charming. Poppy is a flawed, but kind heroine finding her way in the world and learning to stand up for herself. I could certainly relate to Poppy. One of the things that made me smile at the end is the realization that there could certainly be future novels featuring Poppy and her endearing antics. Thanks, Ms. Kinsella, for a wonderful day of listening. I think I'll listen to it again. Soon.
A gadabout with no room for heavy books, so love the audio ones.
I thought this book was great !! It entertained me right to the end ! I agree with previous poster that the texting scene in the forest was my favourite as well ! The narrator could use some work on the other voices, it was hard to distinguish sometimes, but her voice was perfect for the main character so she made it work. Overall, very happy I bought it
Kinsella is one of my chicklit favorites...I know fatally flawed characters are her thing, but I spent much of the book wanting to slap young Poppy and say... SERIOUSLY?! Grow a backbone! Speak up!
Her voice was sufficiently cute and insecure while being easy to listen to.
Absolutley. Fun read. Comedic genius.
Shopaholic Series, Undomestic Goddess, Remember me?
Texting through the woods.
Laughed out loud several times.
I love Sophie Kinsella. Her characters are so relatable and loveable. Her novels are so fun to read that I find myself laughing out loud. This book was one of my favorites.
Yes, it was silly...and yes, it's hard to believe...but it's cute and funny and takes your mind off the real world!
I loved Poppy's character! She's simple, not very complex, but very lovable. You can imagine her as being one of your girlfriends sitting with you in a very nice tapas bar during girl's night out!
It was very romantic and challenging. It wasn't just a straight love story, it also had a bit of fun mystery added to the story line. I think listening to this book made a huge difference with the text context.
Jayne is engaging.
Possession is 9/10ths of the law.
A real disappointment after the Shopaholic series. Thoroughly enjoyed every one of those but had to struggle through this one. Didn't really like a single one of the characters.
What a fun listen! It was sweet, surprising and laugh-out-loud funny. The narrator does an excellent job capturing Poppy Wyatt. This audiobook kept me company on a long car trip, and I didn't want to arrive at my destination so I could keep listening.
This was my first Kinsella book and I loved it.
I was laughing out loud at the predicaments the main character found herself in.
Besides having a very good story, the narration brought the story alive, and I listened with a lot of chuckling and guffawing. Loved the accents and the humor behind the story.
