Publisher's Summary

Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at 30, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates - just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago.

Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive - but surely this is her worst decision yet. And Ben’s colleague Lorcan fears that this hasty marriage will ruin his friend’s career. To keep Lottie and Ben from making a terrible mistake, Fliss concocts an elaborate scheme to sabotage their wedding night. As she and Lorcan jet off to Ikonos in pursuit, Lottie and Ben are in for a honeymoon to remember, for better...or worse.

    Story
    "Ludicrous, could not conceive such an absurdity."

    First, I 'd like to say that the narrators do a good job, I just can't stand the voice of Jayne Entwistle. It's irritating. But it is well read.

    About the book, HOLY HORRIBLE!!! I have read five other Sophie Kinsella books and liked them all, but this one is absurd. The story line is ridiculous. Woman, Lottie, thinks boyfriend is going to propose and when he doesn't she meets up with old flame and decides to get married to him instead. Sister, Fliss, is going through a bitter divorce and has a 7 year old boy or is it 9, I don't know but who cares because it's not really about him at all. This part is about a third of the book, the only part that I could listen to. The rest of the book, which is most of the book, is how the sister, Fliss, tries to keep Lottie and the new flame from having sex on their wedding night because she thinks she's made a terrible mistake.

    Let's start with the fact that a woman going through a terrible divorce with a child and having a fling herself, would never find herself totally obsessed (meaning this is the only thing she does) with keeping her sister from having sex on her wedding night... this is ALL SHE DOES.

    Then Lottie, a 33 year old woman (previously living with her boyfriend), wants to have a shotgun wedding but needs to WAIT to have sex until her wedding night!!!! Riiiiight! ok fine...Let us overlook that. And I should not have because the circumstances become ridiculous. It's one thing to want to make it perfect on your wedding night but any consenting adult would never find him or herself in this situation ...ridiculous. The last 7 chapters were all about how the butler kept coming in the room and interrupting them from having sex, again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again...all orquestrated by the sister, who takes the kid out of school to follow crazy Lottie to Ikonos to stop her from having sex. Totally absurd!!!

    So the last seven chapters I used the "skip to next chapter button" and listened for a few seconds and it was the same thing...butler interrupts with cookies, complimentary messages, upgrades, blah blah blah, trip to exotic location where you can see the allergic reaction coming a mile away, also the night of too many drinks, a bigger bed and on and on and on. It's enough to drive you insane. You just don't care at all what happens to any of them or if they ever do it. Even constantly chaperoned teenagers could have found a moment to do it. From the words of another reviewer, "get a cheap motel and do it already", so you can put me out of my misery.

    So because of this book, I am taking extra time to search for a book with substance, to read all the reviews thoroughly, and to leave a detail review to help others with their selection. Don't waste your time, credit or money! Skip it! "The Undomesticated Goddess" is better, "Can You Keep a Secret", "Remember Me", and even "I Got Your Number" was fantastic compared to this.

    "Whiny and slow, despite the harried nature of the book"

    Thought this would be a fun summer read/listen, but found the story to be really slow to get into and then ending very fast, despite the harried nature of the story. The characters are - for the most part - very unlikeable. The performance doesn't help - they come across as very whiny. I kept listening until I finished the book, which ends abruptly in a tightly wrapped up package despite taking several chapters to even start at the impossible plot.

    "I actually enjoyed it"

    I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I was hesitant because of all the bad reviews but I'm glad I went for it anyway. It's a fun read, a bit preposterous but you come to expect that with Sophie K books. The narration was good, I enjoyed it while driving and being at the gym. A little too much profanity for my taste but overall I liked it. My favorite of all time book is I've got your number so not close to that but still enjoyable

    "Laugh out loud! A fun "listen"!"

    Classic Kinsella style... miscommunications, mishaps and mayhem ensue as the plucky heroine navigates love and relationships! Enjoy the ride!

    I like Sophie Kinsella for a light read from time to time. Personally I wish there were fewer f-bombs.

    "A Comedy of Errors"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wedding Night to be better than the print version?

    The multiple narrators help bring the story to life! Each character has a unique voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book is really funny! The "wedding night" was such a comedy of errors!

    Story
    "Really disappointing. "

    I love Sophie Kinsella's wit and originality. Neither made anything more than cameo appearances in this situational comedy that would have been better told in a half-hour episode of The King Of Queens or (insert name of really contrived sitcom TV show with characters so stupid thatyou want to throw your slippers at the television).

    I say it would have been better told in that format because that is the level of entertainment available in the story, and also because then it would have been over faster. .

    Excellent performances couldn't save it. Sorry, Sophie. This was not your finest hour.


    If I can keep anyone from wasting an Audible credit on this, I will feel that the hours I invested in listening to this babble are slightly redeemed. (Couldn't finish it. Just too painful.)

    "Great Poolside Entertainment!!"

    I've always enjoyed Sophie Kensella's entertaining writing style. This was right up there with the rest of her work. Easy / laugh out loud funny and great story line. I enjoyed the narrative as well - she did a great job of changing her dialect to help differentiate between characters. I feel that often an audible book is only as good as the narrator. This presentation doesn't disappoint.
