Operation Sunshine | [Jenny Colgan]

Operation Sunshine

Evie needs a good holiday. Not just because she's been working all hours in her job as a receptionist for two high-powered plastic surgeons, but also because every holiday she has ever been on has involved sunburn, arguments and projectile vomiting - and sometimes all three at once. So when her employers invite her to attend a conference with them in the South of France, she can't believe her luck.

Publisher's Summary

Evie needs a good holiday. Not just because she's been working all hours in her job as a receptionist for two high-powered plastic surgeons, but also because every holiday she has ever been on has involved sunburn, arguments and projectile vomiting - and sometimes all three at once.

So when her employers invite her to attend a conference with them in the South of France, she can't believe her luck: the chance to hob nob with the rich and glamorous, to party under the stars, to live the life she's dreamed about. It's certainly the holiday of a lifetime - but not quite in the way Evie imagined!

    "Boring"

    Not necessarily a bad story line but the reading was annoying.

    "Absolutely dreadful..."

    Silly, stupid and not worth the time. As another reviewer mentioned, the narrator is miscast (and really does sound like an aged Miss Marple, not a good thing here).

    "entertaining and light"

    I was initially put off by the other reviews, but decided to give it a try anyway, because I like the author. True to form, Colgan wrote an entertaining, light and funny book. It's not great literature. It won't change your life. It's like ear candy. (I didn't mind the narrator at all.)

    "Marvelous"

    This book was hilarious and captivating. The only downside was the reader. She seemed to be a 50-60 year old woman and the character was 27 so it felt off the whole time. It was harder to place the character. Probably would have enjoyed the book a ton more if I had read it instead of listened to it.

    "good not great"

    I listened to it, if you have nothing else, it is doable, but certainly not great.

    "It just didn't get better"

    Having really enjoyed her other books I was really looking forward to this one. But it was very poor verging on dire. It just started off boring wit characters I didn't feel any empathy with and developed into pure farce. Waste of money frankly.

    "Don't bother"

    I downloaded this, having enjoyed another book by the same author, and was very disappointed. a series of caricatures in a setting which the author seemed to know little about. I could not finish it and regretted wasting my money.
