Mimi | [Lucy Ellmann]

Mimi

It's Christmas Eve in Manhattan. An eminent plastic surgeon slips on the ice, lands on his butt, and sprains his ankle. So far, so good. A woman such as he's never known yanks him to his feet and conjures the miracle of a taxi. Harrison recuperates with Franz Schubert, Bette Davis, and a foundling cat. Then it's back to rhinoplasties, liposuction, and the peccadilloes of his obnoxious colleagues. It is only when he collides again with that strangely helpful woman that things take a wild and revolutionary turn.

Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas Eve in Manhattan. An eminent plastic surgeon slips on the ice, lands on his butt, and sprains his ankle. So far, so good. A woman such as he's never known yanks him to his feet and conjures the miracle of a taxi. Harrison recuperates with Franz Schubert, Bette Davis, and a foundling cat. Then it's back to rhinoplasties, liposuction, and the peccadilloes of his obnoxious colleagues. It is only when he collides again with that strangely helpful woman that things take a wild and revolutionary turn. Sparkling, polemical, irreverent, slippery, and sexy, Mimi is a love story, a call to arms, and Lucy Ellmann's most tender and dazzling audiobook. It's also the feminist novel of the century. (So far.)

    "Truly dreadful"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Extremely boring and tedious. Really struggled to get through to the end. The narrative is dreadful with endless lists, characters you could not care less about and nothing really happens


    Has Mimi put you off other books in this genre?

    Yes


    Would you be willing to try another one of Matthew Josdal’s performances?

    No, his voice was annoying, though not helped by writing


    What character would you cut from Mimi?

    All the main ones

    "Don't Do It, Screaming Drivel."
    What would have made Mimi better?

    A storey! A character you could scrape up some interest in, or a narrator who didn't feel he had to put inflection into every other word. Perhaps if he had gotten it in the right place it would have helped - no, on second thoughts, nothing would have helped this book.


    Has Mimi put you off other books in this genre?

    No, I take each book as I find it but I will certainly read reveiws before purchasing another.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Matthew Josdal’s performances?

    NEVER! He has to have one of the most annoying voices on the planet.


    What character would you cut from Mimi?

    Bubbles the cat, to save her from having to listen to these characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't make my mistake and waste a credit on this dross!

    "Not for me"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have no idea it was really bad to listen to


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lucy Ellmann again?

    only if the narator was different


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voice was so hard to listen too


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mimi?

    I gave up listening after 40 mins it was not for me


    Any additional comments?

    All books should be sold with a sample of the narator - if I have been offered a sample I would not have downloaded it - it almost sounded like a computer voice it was dredful
