While I can certainly see a niche for this story, I felt that the lack of contrary characters and the broad strokes that paint most of the population did not ring true in any sense. I often caught myself rolling my eyes at some of the subplots and exploits of the heroine. There is a story to be told, but it needs more flesh on its bones, and a much richer view of the human backdrop as opposed to the mindless sheep it purports us all to be.
While I had seen the film adaptation of this book, it pales in comparison to the book. The narrator could not have been better as her tone and subtleties very much lent themselves to the storyline.
Although I knew the ending going in, I still kept hoping for a different outcome. That is how engrossing this experience was for me.
I was hoping for an engaging romp based on the book description, but what I got was so insipid and poorly written that I finally had to shut it off and delete it. An idiotic and unbelievable plot line coupled with characters so shallow and odious that it was near torture to continue listening. This author must have had some very bad experiences with men for her to write this kind of dreck. Ugh!
