    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.

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

    This book would have been ok if it had a storyline or suspense or anything! It was so boring.


    What was most disappointing about Lauren Weisberger’s story?

    There was a lack of storyline, follow through. Andy's character was annoying and whiny. I didn't feel bad for her but I felt horrible for her husband, Max. She was bratty and condescending. Storylines just fizzled out and I had to stop listening because it was so bad.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator could not have made this horrible book any better.


    What character would you cut from Revenge Wears Prada?

    Andy, Max....most of them

    Three years after the events of Sweet Valley Confidential, Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield are back in Sweet Valley and inseparable once more. Things are looking up for both twins: Elizabeth is a star reporter at the LA Tribune with a popular blog, and Jessica’s PR career is on the fast-track. But while the professional lives of the Wakefield sisters are secure, their personal lives may be in jeopardy. Jessica, now a mother, finds that managing parenthood, marriage, and a job is harder than she expected.

    What disappointed you about The Sweet Life, Episode 1?

    I was disappointed that each part of this set was separate. You had to pay 1 credit for 2 and 1/2 hours. The three parts should be put together and that would equal your average audio book at 10-12 hours.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ilyana Kadushin?

    She was a fairly good narrator but I couldn't tell between the characters voices often.


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

    It reminded me of my childhood, reading the Sweet Valley series

    Jessica Darling is living the New York City dream, until her on-again/off-again boyfriend asks her to marry him. She now has a choice: abandon the life of late-night literary soirees, art openings, and downtown drunken karaoke to move back to New Jersey and be with the one man who's gripped her heart for years, or stick around and freelance for the obscure journal that can't even put a dent in her student loans.

    Rachel says: "Not as good as the previous book in the series"

    Overall

    This series is going downhill...fast. I also didn't care for the narrator in this book. She had a manly voice as compared to Charmed Thirds. I find the Jessica Darling character becoming whiny and annoying. Not so charming anymore.

    In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary's truths are failing her. She's learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.

    Jennifer says: "Meh."
    "Ok story, really terrible narrator"
    Overall

    I am sorry to say but the narrator ruined this book for me. She paused at all the wrong times. She gave everyone weird accents because she couldn't change her voice. She was monotone. Some of the characters almost sounded mentally challenged because of the "voice" the narrator gave them. I almost stopped listening, but I was too committed at that point and wanted to know the ending.
