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, has 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.Wild orgies in exotic locations and political intrigue at home expose a fashionable jet set world that our heroine conquers on her journey, propelled by her desperate unyielding and enduring Ambition.
Accomplished actress Georgina Hale gives a reading that captures the provocative and sexy mood in indomitable style.

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.
This audiobook might be awesome, but the narration is horrible. I've tried to listen to this several times and make it about five minutes in before giving up. The narrators voice in low and nasal. It is very hard to hear and understand. I usually listen while doing things around the house such as cleaning and cooking. I am unable to hear and understand most of what she says. I would not get this audiobook unless you can just sit down and listen. Wish I could get my money back, what a waste.
"Is this in the wrong subject matter"
There seems to be so many erotic stories which are barely erotic at all - give me \"Swingers\" or \"Bound In Blue\" any day.... Audible.co.uk should be more selective when chosing stories to sell on its site.
