    The surprise hit of the year, Allison Pearson's debut novel is garnering critical and fan raves. Publishers Weekly calls I Don't Know How She Does It "delightfully fast moving...with dozens of laugh-aloud moments and many tenderly touching ones," and Booklist applauds this "compelling manifesto on the plight of working mothers that manages to be both angry and funny."

    Overall

    This is my first review of an audiobook but I could not fail to drop a line of support for this piece. It is realistic and thought provoking while keeping you smiling, as well as laughing out loud at times, throughout. The narration is excellent with the wonderful British accent and character work. I usually go slowly, in bits an pieces, stories that are based a little too much on reality and not enough mystery, romance, etc. but I found I could hardly put this one down because you wanted to see how she would pull it all together and to enjoy the next poignant or laughable moment. It is also wonderful how she doesn't just leave you hanging at the end not knowing how the loose ends are tied up or thinking that everything was truly figured out and understood. There are bits and pieces of us all throughout this book and I agreed that it would be a fun book for guys to read to get a quick view of the craziness that often fills a women's world.
