If opposites attract, Ellie and Dan are perfect for each other. She's impulsive; he follows all the rules. Ellie is a virtual orphan, whereas Dan's family is as close-knit as they come. At first, Ellie is thrilled to be accepted into the Cooper clan and embraces Dan's mom, Linda, as the mother she never had...until she begins to realize that Linda's "mothering" is far more intrusive than even the best daughter-in-law can handle.

This book seemed to drag on for ages, I almost didn't bother finishing it. The main character is totally unlikable I couldn't help but wonder if I was SUPPOSED to dislike her. None of her problems were understandable to me. I wanted to scream at her and tell her to quit whining. I suggest passing on this one.

This adventure story has everything you could want: the good guy, some bad guys, the girl, sword fighting, revenge, romance, of course a happy ending, and rodents of unusual size. Join Westley the plucky farm boy, Buttercup the beautiful young maiden, Inigo Montoya the driven, embittered swordsman, and many other strange and unusual characters in this swashbuckling tale of good-natured silliness. It is read by Rob Reiner, who directed the motion picture based on this classic tale.

I really do love this book more than any other, but this audio verson is very much abridged and takes out a good portion of the book. Still enjoyable, but I would recommend reading the book in its entirety first.
