I normally like a Kinsella novel. This one missed the mark though. I didn't really like the characters and it felt absolutely manipulative throughout. There are some funny lines but not enough humor to make it good. I recommend her other books like "Twenties Girl" and "Can You Keep A Secret".

Fun twists and turns. The butlers provided some funny comic relief and Noah was a little charmer. Wedding Night is one of those books that I can listen to again and again.
I haven't read the print version, but the narrators where great. I feel like they added a lot to the story.
I have listend to many other Sophie Kinsella books. They have all been good, but this is now my favorite
They did a great job of conveying the emotions of the characters. I also love the English accents.
I wish the story could have gone on and on.
As a huge Kinsella fan, I've been looking forward to reading this book. However, I was very disappointed. While parts of it was funny, most of the book was way below Kinsella's usual standard. I couldn't relate to any of the main characters, and most of the time I just wanted to scream at them. It was a totally unrealistic story (not necessarily a bad thing, as I loved Twenties girl by the same author), but for this book it just did not work.
The narrators had perfect voices for each character and they made the book come more alive.
Crazy about books. Happy about this way to do it also
How it was read, the voices, the story
Fliss was really something. The chance She took to help her sister. What a honeymoon she caused.
The Honeymoon or Big Sister Meddles
Next time I need a book without indecent language. Different voices for each character.
I always prefer to read. Listening was a new experience but it was very good.
I don't know
all the traveling and dreams
the sense of love of the sisters
it was corny trying to keep the couple apart, this went overboard.
This is the only way to get through all the books I want to enjoy...and still I'm behind!
It is great for long car rides and the fact that if you don't listen to it for a week or month, you really haven't lost the thread of the story. A fairly predictable tale, but truly fun.
The fact that the story takes the reader into a blissful, non thinking pure enjoyment type of entertainment. All the mix-ups, narrations and the little boy Noah with the greatest imagination borne of an author who must enjoy making people laugh.
The fact that she (they? couldn't really tell when the ladies changed) really could make each character individualised-accents were terrific..learned a few new choice phrases as well. Smile, smile.
My husband loves listening to all the Sophie Kinsella stories, makes him laugh everytime, and keeps him entertained while doing the long drives.
