Normally I love all the Kinsella books no matter which series. This one however just didn't do it for me. While I giggled in a few spots, I had nowhere near the normal amount of laughs I get from Kinsella's hapless characters. Maybe it's just that it wasn't that new of an idea since we have here in the US the awful Samantha Who on tv, but I found the book rather predicatable.
Diehard Kinsella fans will probably give it a listen out of loyalty/curiousty but if you are new to this normally great author, try another book first.
I have read most if not all of Brian Haig's books and I looooovvvveee Scott Brick as a narrator so I was planning to buy this when I first saw it in the catalog. Then I read the description and didn't think I was interested. So I moved on. Then I circled back around a time or two until finally one day I bought it without really paying attention.
I'm so glad I did! The story was not what I thought it was going to be; it was so much better. Scott Brick as usual turns in a stellar performance. The plot is compelling, and sadly believable. I wasted a lot of time not reading this book - get it today and see for yourself!
