I’ve lost it. :( The only thing in the world I wasn’t supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It’s been in Magnus’s family for three generations. And now the very same day his parents are coming, I’ve lost it. The very same day! Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive :) !!
Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!
Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading his messages and wading into his personal life.
What ensues is a hilarious and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other’s lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls, and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents... she soon realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.
cute story..enjoyable characters....it was a good book to pass the day with. i hope there is a book 2

This is my first Sophie Kinsella book and it was very enjoyable. This is not anything that is going to challenge you as a listener, but sometimes I have to take a break from my usual thrillers and heavier fiction and just listen to something that's just plain fun. This fit the bill perfectly.

Sophie Kinsella’s latest novel is a like Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn’s “Bringing Up Baby”, except instead of a lost baby leopard bringing the two protagonists together it’s a lost phone. As in the classic film, the lead female is an adorable bundle of neurotic zaniness who’s just a little more out there than is socially acceptable, while the male lead is so uptight you don’t even find him attractive at first. Poppy and Sam are both total caricatures, and you could never accuse the plot of being believable. Point in case- there’s an impromptu sing-a-long involving some serious business-types (which also happened in the movie - I really think I’m on to something here). But somehow this book is still utterly addictive and sucks you in… as does the narrator, who I initially found grating but who I sort of fell in love with.
Overall this was a charming listen. As someone who graduated college and joined the working world in the wake of the Bridget Jones-esque chicklit boom, I’m a little sad to admit the obvious - that the genre is, if not dying, settling in for a long hibernation while speculative romantic fiction ravages the best seller lists. But I’ve Got Your Number is certainly a solid addition to the slowing category.

This was my first Sophie Kinsella novel and I loved it. Of course I also like authors such as Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones) and Candace Bushnell (Sex and the City) so it didn't surprise me that I enjoyed this Chic-Lit as well. It's very funny, cute and quirky. What you come to expect from this genre.
My only complaint is the narrator. I almost gave up on this book because I didn't really care for her style. However, I stuck to it and then she just sort of "grew on me".
So glad I stuck this one out. It was a FUN listen.

If you could sum up I've Got Your Number in three words, what would they be?
Funny, smart, Kinsella!
What did you like best about this story?
The storyline, the main character. Kinsella's heroines are always sweet and funny and bring themselves in all kinds of trouble because of little white lies.
Which scene was your favorite?
The singing for the Japanese bussinessman
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I really was sad when it ended because I had such a good time.

When Kinsella rocked the entertaining book market with her first, unique, self-effacing, hilarious "Can you keep a secret?" novel, I was an instant convert. I excitedly purchased every subsequent novel following the same character through trials, tribulations, engagement, and childbirth, until the concept was beaten into mind-numbing redundancy. She had gone from fresh to beyond dull, and seemed to be flogging a tired, if not dead, horse. I eventually tired of the predictable triteness. I have ignored her work for years, expecting the same shallow refrain. I had the same experience with Janet Evanovich. It is almost like the earlier TV portrayals of Poirot, characicaturizing him to the point of a cartoon character.
Anyway, I don't know what made me to consider Kinsella again. Possibly because I saw she had given up on the original overdone character; and created a new one. The story line actually sounded similar to the first, only new and fresh. So I decided to risk a credit.
When I first started listening, I thought I had made another mistake. The narrator sounded like a bad, low-class reader with a British accent. She sounded tacky. I kept listening, however, and she eventually seemed to grow into character. I still think they could have chosen a better narrator, but the story was well worth the listen. The entertaining domino effect of the loss of an engagement ring makes for a wonderfully chacterized and enjoyable romp.

This is a fun lighthearted read. I really enjoyed the story. The heroine was hilarious. Definitely worth a credit. The narrator did a good job.

I really liked this story. It was a fun read, with a very touching ending. It took me a bit to get used to the narrator, but she grew on me. In the world of technology cell phones have become such an essential item, this story showed how our dependencies on such technology has become. It was sheer genius to develop a story around a cell phone, and texting, you could really feel the connection between Sam and Poppy developing. Take a chance you can't go wrong with this one. Enjoy!!
