Thank goodness for Rosalyn Landor. If not for her, this book would have been unbearable. I've listened to all the Shopaholic books on audio. Yes, Grey is my preferred Becky but Landor is way better than the one who reads "and Sister."
The book itself was a huge disappointment. Becky just never learns. She never grows, develops or changes. She was a compulsive liar, completely unrealistic and utterly spoiled in the first book and now, several years later, she is exactly the same. This is a 29 year old woman who behaves like a teenager with daddy's credit card. Horriflyingly, she is responsible for a young child, who gives every indication she is becoming as spoiled as her overly indulged mother.
Kinsella had an opportunity here to develop Becky beyond the shallow consumer who is only interested in the next big thrill into a grown woman who understands that life is not a just party or reason to acquire more stuff. This will be the last Shopaholic book for me. The series is definitely played out.
