    Nothing comes between Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) and her bargains. Neither act of God nor budget crunch can shatter her dreams of wall-to-wall Prada. Every milestone in her well-shopped life (travel, long-lost sister, marriage, pregnancy) inspires new vistas to explore in the name of retail therapy. But now she faces her greatest little challenge yet: Becky’s two-year-old daughter, Minnie. Her favorite word is “MINE!”

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better story line with realistic edgy but exaggerated entanglements that befall our protagonist in dealing with her compulsion.


    What was most disappointing about Sophie Kinsella’s story?

    Embarrassingly redundent and her characters have become stupidly blind.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rosalyn Landor’s performances?

    Although I missed the


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not a one.


    Any additional comments?

    Was this ghost written or cranked out to make money? The previous characters were always edgy and compulsive but intelligent. This lead and supporting characters were all shallow nitwits with no redeeming qualities. And the plot was nonexistent.

    Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

    What would have made Separation of Power better?

    After listening to the first two novels, I readily downloaded the third. I have tried for three days to get into the story but the narrative voices assigned each character overides the story. I am bailing on the story after listening to ten chapters. No can do. I'll catch up in the next one.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Completely


    Any additional comments?

    Is there a ghost writer on this novel or did the narrator add words like "delicious" to CIA Director Kennedy's dialogue for effect?
