Live the life you have imagined...
I enjoyed the book, but I will not be looking for the rest of the series. Several characters were annoying, but I didn't mind the main ones.
Always busy - always in the car.
The interactions between Sophia and Phin - Amy and Davey hold their own and I love the voice of Wes. The supporting cast is great and Dilly is a hoot.
The characters - all of them - the humor and the love story(s)
I have not, but she did an amazing job on this story - bravo!
I loved the pool scene - he deserved to get his ass handed to him (but I still Love him) - the dressing up in the bar scene and the first time in a bed scene - all so f-ing funny.
Beware - if you are drinking anything while reading this book, you might spit it all over at certain parts of this book from laughing too hard. - Don't say I didn't warn you.
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
I am confused. I mean what did I just listen to? I have attempted to listen to this off and on for quite some time and I cannot bring myself to give self inflicted torture. Nope. I won't do it to me....even if I did pay for it.
I have no idea what the narrator is going on and on about. Her voice, inflection, everything...drives me crazy. Even still the story is so blah that all I remember is that there was a car accident. Say what??? How did I listen for 2 hours and not know any details???? This is my first time listening to both Jennifer Cruise and Aasne Vigesaa and let me say it here and now-I am NOT impressed!
I would not recommend this full price, on a sale, and not even free. Good customers of Audible, take it from me-please do not waste your time.
That is all.
If I am in the mood for a good detective story I will look for a Henry Mankell book.
The voice of the reader was very irritating sometimes.
Disappointment - it was very immature both in the style of writing and content.
After the first fifteen minutes I couldn't continue to listen, the characters had no depth, and the dialogue was very amateurish.
narrator was fine, but i just didn't get that involved in this storyline. it had some cute moments but overall was just a so-so story.
It was a good read but a little drawn out. It had mystery and love but, it had too many side stories going on.
The Witness and a combination of The Husband Trap - unexpected love for those not looking for it. Murder and men who want to do the right thing. But yet very different books. With the husband trap, siblings with selfish motives and no desire to feel responsible for what they do.
Did ok.....but Aimee sounded more like a man
No extreme reactions. I did get upset with the younger sister Aimee for the guilt-trips she keep placing on her sister.
The story is silly, riddled with plot holes and hard to fathom.
How are Sophie and Amy connected to Clea? Almost sister-in-laws?
Is Clea paying them for the audition tape/documentary/movie making?
Why is Clea making her own audition tape?
Why is Sophie fixing up the farm house for Clea?
What does that have to do with making a quick audition tape?
Why is the town fixated on the possibility the audition tape/movie/documentary might have porn?
Why is Phin such an asshole?
Why does Sophie even like him?
Why does he like her?
Why did I pick this book to listen to?
Either I'm stupid and a poor listener or this book isn't well-written.
I also didn't like the narrator at all. She reads too fast and didn't create enough distinction between how she read Sophie and Phin's dialogue making them almost seem to be the same person.
Horrible. The story started off okay, but quickly went into a bad soft porn book. I quit after about half way. Disappointing.
The narrator was fine. The story was lackng.
A good romance with some fun characters. I particularly liked the banter between the main character & her man. Sadly disappointing if you bought it because it was in the erotic section. Still a good listen.
Is anyone else getting the Beijing Conspiracy as part two??? I've bought it twice and called customer service and they said they'd look into it. But I'm an audible addict and am bummed.
