Having separate narrators really gave me the sense of listening to the private thoughts of these two sisters.
As I have a long drive to work, I looked forward to my morning drive when I could, once again, find out what Lottie and Fliss were up to!
If you have never read a Sophie Kinsella book, don't start here. This is a pretty standard offering from SK, but not close to her best work. It has the usual amusing preposterous plotting but lacks the charm of her previous work and is much more R Rated than usual (language and sexy stuff). I suppose the premise of one sister trying to consummate her marriage and have a romantic wedding night, while the other sister tries to stop that from happening should have clued me in to that. There were a couple of laugh out loud moments but not enough to make this a recommendable read. The narration was excellent though. No complaints there.
A typical Sophie Kinella book, told this time from different character perspectives. An enjoyable listen.
Look upward and see the wonders I've seen
I always enjoy a Sophie Kinsella book. They are always fun and I look forward to my commute when I have it on my ipod.
Lorcan. I really liked him and how he and Fliss interacted. I loved that we had two protagonists in this novel.
I've listened to all of her Sophie Kinsella books.
How Lorcan interacted with Fliss and her son. He was great.
and this one did not disappoint me, both characters were so amusing, and even though the story was pretty outlandish, it made me laugh outloud so often. If you are looking for a really light amusing summer read this is it.
Yes, it was a light read. It is definitely a book for women.
I really liked how there were multiple people narrating the book. It made it more interesting to listen to. Rather than one person trying to do all the characters. It was a light read, and it made me want to travel. There are some underlying lessons in it as well. Some scenes are not appropriate for children.
I am a huge Sophie Kinsella fan..........believe I have read just about everything she has written. Definitely preferred the Shopoholic books to her stand-alones.
Wedding Night is a quick read and fun.........the narrators play a huge part in making this true.
I LOVE to listen to audiobooks - the Audible ap is by far the best thing that's ever happend to my iPhone.
You know, every summer there are a couple of songs they play on the radio - CONTINUOUSLY... so by the end of the summer, you cringe when you hear them? I'm afraid this book reminded me of that feeling.
I adore Sophie Kinsella - I do - However, this book is like a tired song... it was just not fun to listen to. It was like a song played one too many times. You've heard it before and there's nothing new about it.
This listen was so much fun! There are many parts that are absolutely not realistic...but that's the FUN part of a Sophie Kinsella book!
Fliss is the older sister who thinks she is trying to protect her younger sister, Lottie. But, for Fliss, it's really about something else. Lorcan thinks he is such good friends with Ben, but there's jealousy, a rivalry and Lorcan's concern about Ben's business decisions.
If you want to lose yourself in a girlie book that is fun and unrealistic, then I recommend this for you!
If your life is full of cursing and screaming, well this is for you.
I loved the previous book "I've got your number" - it should be made into a movie.
This was a brutal listen and very difficult to control the screaming in the earbuds.
I'll be more cautious before I purchase the next.
yes, too many narrators, too much volume variety.
Cursing and screaming
