Shoe Addicts Anonymous | [Beth Harbison]

Shoe Addicts Anonymous

Four different women. One common shoe size. And a shared lust for fabulous footwear. In this sparkling novel, the wife of a controlling politician, a debt-ridden eBay addict, an agoraphobic phone sex operator, and a nanny for the family from hell (who barely knows a sole from a heel but who will do anything to get out of the house) meet on Tuesday nights to trade shoes. In the process, they form friendships that will help each of them to triumph over her problems, from secret pasts to blackmail, bankrupcy, and dating.

    "Chic Lit with character development"

    I enjoyed this book because the characters are not outrageous stereotypes. These women are more like you and me than is the norm in Chic Lit. The characters change and grow throughout the book and they do not depend (too much) on men rescuing them from their troubles. I loved getting to know these women and cheered for them when they changed their lives for the better. I also love shoes, which predisposed me to like this novel. This book is slower paced than you might be used to for this genre, but give these characters a chance and they will win you over with their regular gal charms.

    "a cute listen"

    It kept me entertained for the most part. Did it keep me running longer because I couldn't stop listenting to it, no. But there are very few books that do that for me.
    It took about 15 minutes to get going but I liked how it was about 4 different women so I liked the 4 different point of views.
    I liked the narrator.

    "Nice, Enjoyable!"

    It's an easy listen, four women and their shoe addiction. Believeble enough. The stories come together nicely and interestingly at first and problems are fixed with a nice tidy bow at the end. The narrator is fantastic. She's the reason I chose the book. Will read more from this author just for the narrator!

    "was okay"

    This book follows the lives of different women being lovers of trendy shoes that meet up weekly to discuss their lives and of course shoes! I thought the book would be more fun and engrossing than it was, it was an okay read, but certainly not a book that you are not wanting to put down. The book is very slow and you don't really feel or care for any of the characters.

    "LOVE the Shoe Addicts books!"

    I am not a person who is into shoes, but these Shoe Addicts books are the best! They are engaging and hilarious! I hope there's sequels soon!

    "Bland and Boring"

    This is a very unimaginative book. its similar to confessions of a shopaholic but not nearly as good. The characters were boring. i listened just to finish it.

    "Great read"
    What made the experience of listening to Shoe Addicts Anonymous the most enjoyable?

    I am using this audiobook as a way to run longer:) I'm finding as soon as I stop running I still want to continue listening to it, but I'm making myself wait until the next run. Needless to say I've been running a lot so I can listen to this book!!! It's light and breezy and a great easy read or listen!


    What about Orlagh Cassidy’s performance did you like?

    She was very entertaining and I enjoyed listening to her voice!

    "Humorous and fun listen"

    I enjoyed listening to this and looked forward to learning more about each character. I was not disappointed! Each character is so different, yet they are able to bond and become great friends. I look forward to more Beth Harbison books.

    "First 20 min"

    So far I feel like it's just a shoe version of Confessions of a Shopaholic. I will continue to listen to it and update if anything improves.
