I agree with other reviews, the narrator sounded like she was reading a script, and wasn't getting into character, so to speak. I'll keep trying because I hate wasting money.
Ah, if only Barbara Rosenblat could narrate EVERYTHING!! :0)
From the flow of the story to the spellbinding narration, this is a perfect audiobook.
I had to return the book to the library before I had a chance to read it, so I was thrilled to find the audiobook on Audible. I love vintage fashion, and Isabel Wolff did a great job with the descriptive details. All in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase!
Love Sophie Kinsella and am loving the audiobook so far, but really dread hearing Rosalyn Landor read anything! She's just not a good fit, in my opinion, with Becky. The first audiobooks narrated by Emily Gray were great - she should've done every Shopaholic book!!
A great listen and Bernadette Dunne, as usual, is an excellent narrator.
I didn't give it 5 stars due to intermittent audio quality problems.
Worth the $$$!
The narrator had a baby-ish voice and started a lot of characters' voices with a lead-in chuckle, both of which I though detracted from the story. Overall, though, I'd recommend it.
The monotone of the narrator makes it almost impossible to follow the story. I've tried more than once to give it a chance and am sorry I ever spent the money on it.
The story seemed more 'alive' with a male and female narrator. Not too shabby...
No Kathy Griffin that I could hear, just Karen Griffin. Terrible sound quality, story very hard to follow. Had to give it one star or couldn't post this review.
This is the first time I've written a review for any of the zillions of audiobooks I think I've listened to over the years. :) I'm already a Bernadette Dunne fan, and was very glad I bought/listened to this book - the narration was spot-on and the story itself very interesting.
