    On paper, Bette Robinson's life is good. At 26, she's got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and she's on target to become an associate at the prestigious investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her 80-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or dating outside her office walls, but she's paying her dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she's never been, she has no idea what to do next.

    "Not as good as The Devil."
    Overall

    This story is similar to Devil in that it's about a girl in her 20's trying to figure it all out, has a job that makes her feel shallow and allows her to schmooze with the biggest names in NYC.

    The narration is not good. I had difficulty understanding her in many parts of the book. This was a bit of a letdown and actually ruined my overall enjoyment of the story. Straining to try and understand the narrator isn't a lot of fun. It's probably a much better read, than listen.

    The story is ok, and light. Good summer reading material. Not anywhere near as good as The Devil Wears Prada.

    Plum Sykes' beguiling debut welcomes readers to the glamorous world of Park Avenue Princesses, the girls who careen through Manhattan in search of the perfect Fake Bake (tan acquired from Portofino Tanning Salon), a ride on a PJ (private jet) with the ATM (rich boyfriend), and the ever-elusive fiance.

    Overall

    This story is about a shallow girl, and all her shallow rich friends. They do outlandish things, are very spoiled and live lives we little people can only read about ;)

    The story was good, but if you're a reader, you'll likely have it figured out early on. Even so, the narration was great and kept me engaged the entire time.

    Now, I just need to find myself a PH with a PJ and we'll be all set :) (You'll get the references once you listen to the story!)

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    "Great fun!"
    Overall

    This story kept me engaged the entire time. The narration was fabulous, absolutely fabulous!

    I found myself rooting for Andrea to do the right thing, I found myself shocked at the absurdity of Miranda's demands. Lots of funny moments and a few touching. If for nothing else, listen just to hear the narrator read to you. She's that good!

    Best selling author James Patterson has written a love story! Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas is a powerfully moving and suspenseful novel about families, loss, new love, and hope. Browse more Patterson.

    Overall

    I had high hopes for this book, as I enjoy James Patterson very much. Here are my thoughts:

    1. The narration was terrible. The narrator used such a phony unbelievable southern accent for Kate, it was hard to not giggle.

    2. I dislike the use of music at dramatic points in audiobooks. The dramatic music was more of a distraction to me than a heightening of the drama.

    3. The diary to Nicholas seemed so strange. Why would a mother write such intimate details and accounts of her love life to her son? As long as I forgot this was a diary to a child I was ok.

    My feeling is that this book would be a better read, than a listen. The story is not horrible, but the narration and music really turned me off.
