    Story

    Elizabeth Jones, vacationing from her New York publishing job, is off to do touristy things in Denmark. The plane ride introduced Elizabeth to her idol, Nobel Prize-winning historian and famed eccentric Margaret Rosenberg and her long-suffering son, Christian. So when Margaret vanishes in Copenhagen, Elizabeth joins the irascible Christian in searching the city, from underground crypts to the graves of queens. What they encounter is a baffling ransom demand and the oldest of motives for crime.

    W says: "Awkward Characterization"
    "Passive unresponsive characterization"
    Overall

    What modern woman in her right mind would fall for a boob such as "Christian". Ms. Peters lost my enthusiasm for this book once I discovered that this milk-toast character was her romantic hero. Elizabeth started strong, then turned weak. A very good word for this book is BAFFLING at best.

    "Better editing needed"
    Overall

    I have no complaints about the stories in this audible book. I enjoyed most of the readings. Especially Jean Smart. Unfortunately, the editing of the stories is awful; whoever edited the audible book did not allow for a break between each story. As soon as one story was finished another one began. I found this very frustrating. There was no time to evaluate each story. I enjoy being given the opportunity to create an opinion on the nature, character, or quality of the books I am listening to.

    Filled with frisky pets and fine suspense, the Mrs. Murphy mysteries are instant New York Times best sellers. Fans love the sleuthing team of spunky postmistress "Harry" Harristeen and Mrs. Murphy, her savvy tiger stripe cat.

    "Too many characters causes obliqueness."
    Overall

    This is my first Rita Mae Brown book; I purchased this book after reading a great many positive reviews of Ms. Brown's work. I also listened to the sample offered from this website. Unfortunately, my listening experience of the whole book has been, at best, scrambled. This story contains so many characters that I found it hard to isolate the main theme of the story. I am not sure if there is a theme to this story. Although there were murders, I am unable to find any relevance in the story for the murders. I think the motivation for the murders is distorted by the extreme lack of developed characters. I accept that the Mrs. Murphy character is an intrinsic part of the story. But, the vagueness in the personalities of the other characters in the story adds no true foundation to the "mystery" that is being played out. The ending does not justify the means. Ms. Brown's desire to insinuate the reason for the murders at the end of the story does not justify her obliqueness during the story.

    I enjoy a good mystery! I enjoy a good story! I enjoy having a lot of interaction between the main characters of a story when I am listening to them on my way to & from work. I did not find this story enjoyable to listen too.

    With her shopping excesses in check - for now, at least - and her new career as a TV financial adviser blooming, Becky's biggest problem is getting her business-minded boyfriend Luke to take a romantic getaway. But "getaway" takes on a whole new meaning when Luke says he needs to move to New York for business - and he asks Becky to come with him! International best - selling author Sophie Kinsella's sequel to the wildly popular Confessions of a Shopaholic is non-stop fun.

    Julie says: "Delightful!"

    Sophie Kinsella's debut is a romp through the perils of shopping and spending, spending, spending! Becky can't resist a sale, and she's only a little overdrawn on her VISA. Readers will laugh aloud at Becky's retail adventures as she finds new and creative ways to relieve her increasingly credit card debt. Emily Gray's narration bounces along with Becky and her buying whims, while delivering a humorous account of what happens when credit goes bad.

    Evelyn says: "Not so much!"
    "shopaholic fun fun fun"
    Overall

    This is an amazingly funny book, I had tears coming down my face from laughing so hard. Mainly because I find myself doing the same types of things that the wonderful charachter Becky Bloomwood does to get out of debt. Positively fabulous! If you thought Bridget Jones' Diary was funny, wait until you read/hear Shopaholic.

    Enjoy.
