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.)

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
No, his voice was annoying, though not helped by writing
All the main ones
I do not know who would enjoy this, very weak story .I made mistake buying this. nothing really happened. The narrator was grating. Gave up after two hours listening.
Very indulgent ranting on with not much to say, the dullest book I have ever chosen
"Wish I'd read it, not listened to it"
This was probably a better read, than an audio book. I agree with the other reviewers, the narrator made it very boring and monotone and the emphasis was wrong in parts - like he'd not realised the rest of the sentence was on the next line. Very irritating. This book was on our list for the book club and to save time, I thought I'd listen, rather than read it.
Wish I'd done it the other way round. Shame
"Don't Do It, Screaming Drivel."
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.
No, I take each book as I find it but I will certainly read reveiws before purchasing another.
NEVER! He has to have one of the most annoying voices on the planet.
Bubbles the cat, to save her from having to listen to these characters.
Don't make my mistake and waste a credit on this dross!
"Not for me"
I have no idea it was really bad to listen to
only if the narator was different
The voice was so hard to listen too
I gave up listening after 40 mins it was not for me
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
