I have listened to or read all of Sophie Kinsella's other books and thoroughly enjoyed them, so when I saw she had a new one out I instantly used my credit to download it. I've got your number did not disappoint. From the first chapter I was transported into Poppy's world and was reluctant to leave it when the book finished. As usual Sophie Kinsella does a great job getting you on side with the characters, and Clare Corbett does a fantastic job portraying the characters in her performance. I highly recommend this book.
Woman, 33 years old, Attornay at Law, DK. In order for a book to be truly great, it must inspire, intreague and a keep me up till dawn.
If you are in the mood for a british humored story, this is just the thing. Lots of embarassing moments, off key singing (yes - she really does sing), a lot of confusing texts and e-mails and little bit of love, but no big exclamations and only a few kisses. I did like the stoy, but it did not, as many other books have, keep me up at night. It a story you listen to, just for the fun of it, but is is not a story waiting for a sequal. I am normally mostly interested in romance fantasy books, but it did make for a nice little break, and I did laugh several times. If you are a Bridget Jones-type of girl - this is your type of book!
I am a big Sophie Kinsella fan and this book didn't disappoint. I really enjoyed listening to it as the narrator was good and the story very entertaining. I would recommend it!
"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.
