This book had me laughing and almost crying at times. The main character was in line with Sophie Kinsellas normal female leads and the ups and downs in this book were quite predictable but still good to listen too.
As usual couldnt stop listening to this, in the bath, on the train in the car!!
Well read to with a lovely clear easy to understand voice.
I have enjoined all previous Kinsella's novels, usually a funny and light reading. This last one has been a complete put off. The story was poor (I work as a PA and all the story about sharing a mobile is surreal: they would have cut your line off! And who'd drop a mobile on a bin?) as well as the main characters'... I thought that "Death comes to Pemberly" was the worst 2012 book... but this one...
This was very enjoyable to listen to while working and had me laughing out loud as well as shaking my head over Poppy's actions and thought processes. Very fast paced and well narrated.
"Quite a nice listen"
I love listening to Sophie's books, they quite often make me laugh on long journies. This book as pretty good, a tad unbelievable at times but still fun anyway. Quite romantic too! Worth a listen.
This book was nothing but twaddle! And the narrater drove me mad. The whole story is ridiculous!
I loved this book, it had me laughing out loud while walking through town resulting is some strange looks but who cares. Brilliant from start to finish and well narrated too. Keep them coming.
"Perfectly silly - and great fun"
This is escapist fun with the lot - humour, romance and a pretty far fetched plot with enough twists and turns to keep you listening. The central female character Poppy is in the process of organising her wedding when a chance find brings the tall, dark and handsome Sam into her life. What follows is a comedy of relationships, misunderstandings, in-laws and some corporate hijinx for good measure. It is nicely performed by the narrator who has the perfect voice and tone for all the characters. Is is ground breaking literature? Of course not - but why would we want it to be? Perhaps it is best summed up in three letters - LOL.
"A real feel good book - chick lit!"
This book had me laughing. I sat on a camp-site, peeling carrots and getting dinner ready, laughing out loud at some of the 'happenings'. Other campers must have thought I was mad. A really easy to listen to book.
This was the first audio book unabridged that I have listened to so my Review will be tainted by my unfamiliarity with the format. I found it difficult to keep concentrating through some of the slower parts, unable to flick on and speed read like with a book. But, narration was very good, loved the voices. Likeable main characters and predictable ending but good holiday listening
"Creative, and charming"
At first glance, one might thing it's just a love story again, with a man and woman who have nothing in common but their encounter will change their lives. That's rigth and Kinsella do it perfectly, but there is much more. She managed to surprise the reader with her incredible creativity and humor. The story is charming and sensitive. And, icy on the cake, Clare Corbett made a very good work, her voice is perfect for the main charactere, she makes her cute and serve well the comics situations.
A good fun time.
