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.

    "A Stinker Even at Double Speed"

    I loved the Shopaholic series and enjoyed a few of Sophie Kinsella's other books, but even as fiction I have to say this book was shallow, pointless and painful to listen to, a real stinker. I couldn't stand any of the characters.

    At one point while I was listening, I just blurted out loud, "For pity sakes, just go to a cheap motel and put me out of my misery". Luckily I was alone at home at the time.

    The female characters were just whiny and dysfunctional. I even listened to the book at double speed just hoping to get it over with.

    I have vowed not to pay for another Sophie Kinsella book.

    "Not the Kinsella I'm used to!"

    Normally her books are lighthearted with likable characters. I didn't enjoy any of these people.They were all fairly shallow and uninteresting. The plot lines are usually slightly daffy with sweet endings. This was all about people wanting sex. Not that there's anything wrong with that but it was the entire story. I've had an Audible membership for over 10 years. This is only the third book that I've listened to and struggled to complete in that time. Really, this was pretty awful!

    I love to read but who has time. I'm in the car all day for work so listening to books is so perfect and feeds my habit. :-)

    "Cute story"
    What made the experience of listening to Wedding Night the most enjoyable?

    Hearing the story from different points of view made it more enjoyable to listen to. It was a little predictable, but that wasn't really a problem. This book had some authentically hilarious moments.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene at the hotel. I laughed out loud during some of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I would actually recommend this book to others. I haven't read any of Sophie Kinsella's other books, but I think this was a cute read with some genuine characters. The story moved well and even though it was a little predictable, there were some great surprises. It was a nice light listen and had characters with some dimension.

    "Not my favorite"

    I really like Sophie Kinsella, but I didn't enjoy this book. I don't mean it wasn't well written, I mean I didn't enjoy the situations. I thought the divorce part was depressing, and all the proposals were desperate. The wedding night was a nightmare - I was listening to that part on the way home from work, and instead of feeling relaxed and entertained, I felt frazzled. The whole thing seemed unhappy all the way around. It was depressing to me, not funny. Spoiler alert: I didn't get the Richard thing - he never considered marriage until it was a contest - I would hate to think of anyone ending up with someone that was shocked that marriage was brought up after four years. Personal story: we were in our early 30s when we married, and our wedding night was in Hawaii. Our room was in an older hotel on Waikiki beach, with Diamond Head as the view. When my husband opened the door, we saw twin beds. He didn't even close the door. Without saying a word, he put down the travel bag, moved all the furniture around until the beds were together, then he picked the bag up and closed the door as if we had just walked into the room. Problem fixed in five minutes. I don't see how twin beds would slow anyone down, but that's just how we are.

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

    A better story


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot finish this book. I kept think it would get better. IT DIDN'T. It was brutal trying to get through.

    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.
