Shall We Dance | [Maggie Alderson]

Shall We Dance

Loulou Landers is about to turn 49 and she's feeling seriously overlooked. She hasn't had a relationship for 20 years, her 21-year-old daughter Theo is giving her the cold shoulder, and is that really a bunion making it so painful to walk, or is Christian Louboutin losing his touch? Theo can't see what her mum is so hung up about. It's only another birthday. And she has more important things to think about - mainly herself. For not only is Loulou permanently single, but so is Theo – despite her legendary good looks. But over the course of a summer, everything changes.

Publisher's Summary

Loulou Landers is about to turn 49 and she's feeling seriously overlooked. She hasn't had a relationship for 20 years, her 21-year-old daughter Theo is giving her the cold shoulder, and is that really a bunion making it so painful to walk, or is Christian Louboutin losing his touch? Theo can't see what her mum is so hung up about. It's only another birthday. And she has more important things to think about - mainly herself. For not only is Loulou permanently single, but so is Theo – despite her legendary good looks. But over the course of a summer, everything changes. Two men set out to get both women back in the love game. The only problem is that both mother and daughter keep their burgeoning romances secret from each other. Because, in each case, there's a 30-year age difference. And that's only one of the issues.

    "Shall we...say it's just OK?"

    Interesting view of vintage and fashion business. The story was a mother and her vitriolic daughter as they consider exploring sexual relationships with with men with 20 year age differences to them. It was OK, would not consider reading it again. The daughter character was particularly annoying to listen to. I don't think I would read another book by this author. So really I did not like the story much.

    "Shall We Dance"

    I read Cents and Sensibility by this author and loved it. The narrator was great. Assuming this book would be as good I made a mistake for once I did not listen to the sample. Big mistake.

    This book is terrible I can't believe anyone would agree to print it! The story is boring, and mind numbing. Do not waste your time.
    The narrator is woeful. She starts off talking as a 21 year old girl sounding like a 5 year old absolutely pathetic constantly changing this character's voice. I have listened to over 60 audiobooks and this is the only one I am finding hard to finish I am trying but skipping a lot.

    "ABANDONED AT CHAPTER 2"
    Would you try another book written by Maggie Alderson or narrated by Stephanie Daniel?

    Unlikely that I'd buy another book written by Maggie Alderton but, most certainly, I would never buy one narrated by Stephanie Daniel


    Has Shall We Dance put you off other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephanie Daniel’s performances?

    Absolutely not


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Such irritation I abandoned it very early on. The dialogue for the daughter was more appropriate for a ten year old. The performance for the daughter sounded more akin to the most irritating four year old. I honestly feel bad giving such a poor review but it was appalling.

    "Shall We Dance"

    This was my first audiobook and I only tried it because it was free and I couldn't get the book from the library. I found the voices irritating at first, especially Theo but I was soon hooked on the story. Definitely one of Maggie Alderson's best and I would highly recommend it.
