I read all of the previous shopaholic books the old fashioned way. This was the first I listened to. I loved the narrator! This was the perfect book to listen to while lying on the beach.
I was disappointed by this audio book. I've never heard such a boring reading. It was delivered in a monotone. The book itself needed more editorial pruning. It had many long segments of self-glorification by the author. It stated that it was a novel, but based on a true story. It shuld have simply been written as a memoir. it would have been easier to take. The subject of adoption of a school-age child is one that could be of interest to many, but not the way this one was told.
I loved this book. I found myself wondering multiple times as I listened how he was going to bring it all together. His characters are so quirky, but lovable, (except Piejack). I laughed out loud often, which got me some weird looks as I was on the treadmill at the gym! Great escapist listening .
This book took it to a new level. It was very realistic, but I had to have a talk with my 15-year-old daughter before I let her read it. It opened a good discussion, but this book might be a bit much for some girls due to the depiction of budding sexuality. Especially Lena's story line. It was very entertsining, and a good wrap-up to the series. I hope Ms. Cabot brings these characters back after college.
