Publisher's Summary

Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional 20-something young women don't get visited by ghosts. Or do they?

When the spirit of Lara's great-aunt Sadie - a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance - mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie's possession for more than 75 years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions. Her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, her start-up company is floundering, and she's just been dumped by the perfect man.

Sadie, however, could care less.

Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadie's necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different "twenties" girls learn some surprising truths from each other along the way.

Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsella's books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.

    Story
    "My first Kinsella"
    What made the experience of listening to Twenties Girl the most enjoyable?

    I bought the book based on reviews. The quirky and witty way of the authors writing made the book charming and enjoyable. However, the story was not very believable, but getting the book on sale is worth it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the persistence of the ghost - but I DID NOT FALL IN LOVE with the main character. She was not a very honest person and that bugged me. She had other good qualities, but overall leans to become annoying.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are several funny scenes, I don't want to spoil the book.


    If you could rename Twenties Girl, what would you call it?

    The Dragonfly necklace


    Any additional comments?

    Did not like the bad language, was uncalled for. Needed a bit more character development It is a "light read" nothing that makes you think or change your ways. I might give the author another try based on reviews.
    Narration was ok -- male voices were just ok.

    Story
    "Silly, but fun"

    It is necessary to turn off your brain for this book, but sometimes that's ok! Very fun, silly, and a great beach listen.I'm glad the cost was dropped down to one credit- it was worth one, but not two.

    "All the Same, but good for a laugh"

    This is a silly SK book - like all of them. I love the reader and have moments of laughing out loud. This isnt for you if you're not looking for silliness.

    Story
    "Expected more..."
    Would you try another book from Sophie Kinsella and/or Rosalyn Landor?

    Yes and I have read/listened to several Sophie Kinsella and Madeleine Wickham books that I really enjoyed.


    Any additional comments?

    I found that this book was not nearly as clever as other Sophia Kinsella books. I don't like it when intelligent characters do stupid, out-of-character things. I found the beginning of this story to be frustrating but it definitely got better in the latter portion of the book. Rosalyn Landor's performance was good and I have enjoyed all of the narrators of Sophie Kinsella's books.

    Story
    "Very enjoyable and much better than expected!!!"

    I am a huge fan of Sophie Kinsella novels and have listed to all her audiobooks. I left this one for last because the title never really captured my attention. I have to tell you that I was VERY pleasantly surprised as I enjoyed this audiobook immensely. Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, you have to set aside the fact that Lara is in touch with the spirit of her Great Aunt Sadie. Lara really develops a believable relationship with her aunt and the story line involves mystery, romance, and above all, family values. A winner for sure! I highly recommend this novel!

    Story
    "Great Aunt Sadie"

    Not sure this is my favorite Kinsella, but it was very enjoyable. I love her intricate plots. This one requires a complete suspension of disbelief, even without the presence of the ghost. But it's always fun to see how masterfully this author wraps up all the plot lines. After getting her characters into impossible situations, she magically gets them out. I enjoyed these characters and the period details. A yummy hero too. Landor does a good job with a rather difficult challenge, since Aunt Sadie was probably not easy to portray.

    Story
    "Not one of my favorite Kinsella novels"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It did have its moments but all in all I could have missed this one.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sophie Kinsella before, how does this one compare?

    Below par.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene in public and she is talking to her Aunt Sadie and everyone thinks she is crazy. Smart to use the phone to cover up.


    Do you think Twenties Girl needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I just didn't love the characters.

    Story
    "I Love Aunt Sadie! And,You Will Too!"

    It took me a little bit to get into Twenties Girl, but once I did ... I was all the way in. I found myself loving Aunt Sadie. I loved the story of her life, her love affair with the neighbor and her missing necklace. Of course, I also really enjoyed Lara's story. I was happy to read about supportive parents as I found them very familiar and the charm of this story was just a total joy. I am a Sophie Kinsella fan, and this book was totally satisfying. Two thumbs up!

    "a listening pleasure!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was my first "chic lit" so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised! I felt like I was right there with them. This is definitely a book I could listen to again.
