  • Mini Shopaholic: A Novel

    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!”

    James Gordon says: "I'm So Embarrassed!"
    "Bring back Emily Gray!"
    Overall

    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!!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Excellence, pure and simple"

    From the flow of the story to the spellbinding narration, this is a perfect audiobook.

    Her friends are stunned when Phoebe Swift abruptly leaves a plum job at the prestigious Sotheby’s auction house to open her own vintage clothing shop in London—but to Phoebe, it’s the fulfillment of a dream. In the sunlight-flooded interior of Village Vintage, surrounded by Yves Saint Laurent silk scarves, Vivienne Westwood bustle skirts, cupcake dresses, and satin gowns, Phoebe hopes to make her store the hot new place to shop.

    Laura says: "A Sweet, Leisurely Stroll, but Ultimately Dull"
    "Great story, very descriptive"
    Overall

    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!

    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 $$$!

    Allison, Jodine, and Emma set their apartment on fire. No, they didn't do it on purpose. What kind of lunatics do you think they are? And don't go worrying. No one got hurt, although they did go to the hospital. Unfortunately, there was no one in white yelling stat!, no one climbing aboard a gurney to thump life back into someone's heart and no hot paramedic performing artificial respiration. What they do have now is one giant repair bill and no money. No problem.

    T. M. Lefevre says: "Decent Prose too much vulgarty"
    "Good story but wrong narrator"
    Overall

    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.

    Molly Jennings has one naughty secret: her job as an erotic fiction author. Until her inspiration runs dry. One look at former high school hunk chief of police Ben Lawson and Molly is back in business. The town gossip is buzzing at her door and, worse still, a stalker seems to be watching her every move. Thankfully, her very own lawman has taken to coming over, often. The only problem now is that Molly may have to let the cat out of the bag about her chosen profession - and straitlaced Ben will definitely not approve.

    CJoy says: "Loved this book!"
    "narration makes book hard to get into"
    Overall

    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)

    Julie Burchill is a renowned journalist and prolific columnist whose provocative opinions and observations sometimes create controversy and division but always make for compulsive reading. Her first novel, the best seller Ambition, have these same ingredients and more as she elevates the sex and shopping formula to an erotic, witty, and imaginative account of Susan Street's exploits to reach the top.

    Suzi says: "I agree... unlistenable"

    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.

    When Jack Power, the titan of real estate in New York City, decides to divorce his wife, Cynthia, former ballerina and Princess of Park Avenue, in order to marry his mistress, Lara, America's favorite morning news anchor, all hell breaks loose. He's got to come up with a plan, and fast - including finding a suitable boyfriend for his wife so that she will let him go.

    Peter says: "ENJOYED"

    The story seemed more 'alive' with a male and female narrator. Not too shabby...

    What Tales of the City did for San Francisco, Misadventures in the (213) does for Los Angeles in this tale of a struggling screenwriter, his circle of celebrity-seeking friends, and their madcap attempts to make it in "The Biz." Misadventures? What else would you call making off with fish from Tina Louis's koi pond, calling Leeza Gibbons mid-flight to ask who does her headshots, or auctioning off Andrew Shue's chicken-wing and Heather Locklear's lip print for charity?

    Noelle says: "Really bad audio quality for outdated fluff story"
    "Horrible - want refund"
    Overall

    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.

    In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

    Stephanie says: "Best Book in a while"
    "Very very enjoyable"
    Overall

    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.
