    "Lacks substance"

    What a disappointment! This story lacks substance, is predictable, and was really annoying! The main character continually jumps to stupid conclusions, the plot is simple, the dialogue is trite.

    Disappointing because I've liked other books by this author.

    "DRAMA??"

    The narrator of this book is FANTASTIC! If it were not for her I would have shut it off long ago. The book is just too much drama for one womans lifetime. It just gets tired and too fantastic just one drama after another. Nothing seemed to flow. It just pops up with no prior history or warning....

    Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...

    "calling me back"

    Great narration! The accents remind me of my recent trips to both countries. I could easily follow along the main character's sightseeing of Dublin. Makes me want to go back to Ireland and Australia.

    "Funny"

    I really enjoyed this great comedy of errors. The main character was funny in an unassuming way and really kept you enthralled. Enjoyed this book thoroughly!

    "Very entertaining"

    “A Taste for It” was a most enjoyable read. I enjoyed it very much; it was light and entertaining. It was a good blend of the Clare Valley wine country in South Australia and County Clare in Ireland with wonderful characters and good humour. I am keen to read more Monica McInerney novels.
