Wedding Night: A Novel | [Sophie Kinsella]

Wedding Night: A Novel

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.

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.

    Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...

    "just mediocre Kinsella, but charming nonetheless"

    As much as I found the plot disappointing and a bit on the slow side at times, I don't think Sophie Kinsella can write a bad book ... she's apparently quite a charming person and that does come through in spades in her writing. Narration quite good. Overall, worth an Audible credit.

    "Not this one"
    What would have made Wedding Night better?

    I don't know. I normally love Sophie Kinsella and have read many of her books. I remember laughing so much my eyes watered but this book I couldn't even finish. This book was not funny it was silly and predictable. In my 10 year history of Audible this is only the 3rd book I was unable to continue until the end.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sophie Kinsella again?

    I would get something from Sophie Kinsella again but I would really read the reviews much closer and make sure I don't waste another credit.


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    The narrator wasn't bad, I don't know if it was her accent but I never really felt the emotions or humor of the story (maybe that is why the book seemed so bad.)


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

    Silly. Just not worth listening because it was too predictable.

    Story
    "A mix of wickem and kinsella."
    Where does Wedding Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Wedding night is a fun fast read/listen. As always kinsella is quirky and fun. Twenties girl still remains my favorite among her other books. I would rank this with "un domestic goddess" (not a favorite but still worth a read)


    Any additional comments?

    This book reminded me a lot of her "wedding girl" book. If it wasn't for the older sisters meddling it should have been a "M Wickham" book.

    Story
    "Another great Sophie Kinsella read"
    What made the experience of listening to Wedding Night the most enjoyable?

    Light hearted and funny. I found myself laughing out loud with the attempts to thwart the wedding night "activities."


    What other book might you compare Wedding Night to and why?

    Like the shopaholic series; just humorous with a light-hearted theme.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Narrators were great! I really, really like it when there is more than one narrator. They brought the characters to life.


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

    The hotel concierges attempts to postpone the wedding night activities had me laughing to the point of tears.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't read this if you want anything serious or believable. It is just a great lighthearted look at the craziness of people and the dysfunction I am sure we all share. Enjoy.

    "The Point Was???"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have really enjoyed most of Sophie Kinsella's books. Can You Keep A Secret was wonderful and I was surprised that I've Got Your Number was really nice (except I had to day dream a more thorough ending). But Wedding Night was pointless. I didn't like ANY of the characters, including the child (although he did have his moments of entertainment). I basically thought if they all fell in the sea, that would have been ok. When one was wondering how far down from the ship's railing it was to the water, I chanted Jump Jump Jump. Audible's question of what could have made it a 4 or 5 star listen could be answered by totally scrapping the plot and characters and starting with something totally different. I thought of not listening to the whole thing but I figured it just had to get better. I was wrong.

    "details details details"

    Good listend lots of details. Drawn out at times. I loved the story line but at times i just wanted to skip forward. I got tired of the on and on of it. But, I would buy it and listen to it on a long long drive. It had its ups and downs and its moments of pure laughter. UNDERPANTS is my favorite line in the book.

    "Classic Kinsella"

    Despite being a tad too long and slightly predictable, Kisella pulled out the charm once again with this novel. The story line was far fetched but hilarious - I found my self laughing out loud on more than several occasions. I enjoyed the split narration, it kept me wanting more through out the book. The narrators are wonderful and give a lot of life to the story. Not my favorite Kinsella book but definitely good for a light, fluffy beach read.
