I love all the Milly Johnson books I have listened to. They seem to be a perfect blend of light, funny and cute without being over the top or over romanced. Love them!
The story of this book kept me hooked, but the overuse of literary devices for every description drives me crazy. Every little detail becomes something personified or a metaphor or an overly dramatic hyperbole. This drives me crazy but I am/was interested in the story and ended up going back for the sequel...
I think the narrator probably did a good job but definitely adds a layer of drama to the already thick writing I spoke about above. Doesn't help my annoyance at that point but isn't really the narrator's fault.
I should have been more cautious when buying- the whole dog as a main character/narrator situation was not my thing.
That said, I thought the story was pretty decent within the confines. I knew from the start that I would not ever relisten.
Emily as a character was great and I thought both narrators did well.
I really enjoyed listening to the whole book. Every time I got back into my car I was excited to get back into what was happening in the story.
While listening to all of Sophie Kinsella's main characters make their increasingly bad decisions- sometimes I feel like it was a bit of a reach. I wasn't caught up in that at all in this book. Really enjoyed.
I really like all of Molly Harper's books and this one is no exception. Certainly a lot shorter and quicker than her others but I enjoyed it all the same.
Amanda Ronconi seems to be the perfect narrator for the Molly Harper books. Does not disappoint at all.
Cute story- perfect for an audiobook for me.
I did think the narrator did a good job. My only real critique may have been in the editing? Quite often throughout this book I'd hear the narrator swallow, pages turn etc. I've never heard this on any other book I've listened to and I am a frequent listener. Definitely distracting and unappealing.
