Knowing it is a children/young adult book, I read the reviews before buying this. I do not agree that it can be read by adults. It is VERY childish. Perhaps good for children- but adults... beware! I can not even finish listening to it. And it has nothing on Harry Potter- the first books anyway.
Not sure what target audience this is for... I would have said young children- but then the sex scenes??
Juvenile story and juvenile reading that I kept thinking would get better and it never did.
A brilliant narration of a wonderful story. Even though I was thinking of passing on this one because the main character is only 14, I am so glad I didn't. The author makes the age of the lead work and I laughed out loud at some of her dialogue. I am left really looking forward to the next instalment.
The narrator for this does not distinguish enough between voices so it is very difficult to follow the story.
I do not get the main character in this- who knows that much about shoes?? And the author would have to know it to write about it. Unless it is all made up...
The narrator is also irritating, but maybe it is the infantile dialogue?
For the record- I did find the first book entertaining enough to try this one.
Although I like Kate Reading as a narrator- she did not do it for me in this book. She was annoying as the main character. However, it is a fun listen. I would discourage one from listening to Kinsella books back to back though- it becomes a little too much of a good thing!
This was my first Kinsella book and I loved it.
I was laughing out loud at the predicaments the main character found herself in.
I have to say that I liked the narrator. I listen to all of my audiobooks in fast playback and this does make a huge difference to my tolerance level but she was far from intolerable.
So- if you want a mindless, fun listen- this is not far off the mark.
Keep in mind it is a Harlequin!
OK to pass the time. I am not quite sure what I am missing- I can't quite see what all of the rave reviews are for. The narration is good. The main characters are not easy to like but after all of the time I spent listening to this book- absolutely nothing stands out- except Diana was always tired!
The narration was good and the story was not disappointing. A very good series and this was worth waiting for- GO for it!
Except for an annoying voice for the lead male- this was a wonderful book. Well worth it!
