This was a light fluffy fun book and I enjoyed it a lot. This is the kind of book you pick up for a good laugh & a smile. The main character, Isabel isn't your typical chick lit socialite. She's an ordinary woman who tries to be sophisticated but somehow always ends up in the most hilariously awkward situations. Isabel's exaggerated imagination and colorful humor make the book a delight to listen to. The book is well worth the credit. I thoroughly recommend it for someone who's looking for a book that's a good laugh & loads of fun. This was money well spent.
I really wanted to like this audiobook. I liked the story and it was very fun and enjoyable for the most part but I really disliked the narrator's deadpan/monotone voice while she was reading. The narrator sounds a bit too old for this book. I think we need someone who sounds a bit younger and less monotone.
The narrative is flat and unimaginative. The author repeats the plot line to the reader more often then the names of the main characters. It's as though the author feels that the listener/reader is SO dense that they need the plot repeated six times every three pages. Not to mention the character development is null and void. The novel is mainly told through Kahlan's point of view which is unexpected but tolerable at first, but after the first half an hour I grew tired of her endless devotion to Richard; which she states about five times every chance she gets a bit of dialogue. Furthermore most of the "feministic" women seem to spend a lot of time serving or proclaiming their devotion to Richard. And the narrator seems to add onto this by giving each female character a whiny and pleading voice. In summary, don't waste your money.
