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.
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!)
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!
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.
