Listening to audiobooks is a guilty pleasure. I travel a lot so listen to about four per monthly. Biographies are a favorite.
I love Sophie Kinsella - fluffy but very funny protagonists. This story felt forced.
Not really - it was probably my least favorite by the author. That being said, it was listenable - is that a word?
A TV movie on Lifetime, maybe. Definitely NOT Isla Fisher, who starred in terrible Shopaholic movie.
I heard and read some great reviews about this book. I never finished it. It just couldn't keep my interest. I don't know if it was the narrator or just the story. But to me this book is a sleeper.
I laughed at all the antics of the two sisters! I love Kinsella's books and this one especially. I highly recommend!
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.
