Critic Reviews

"Through it all, Becky never loses her spark, making this fifth entry in the Shopaholic series every bit as delightful and hilarious as its predecessors." (Booklist)

Great story, fun and light but ...

did the producer forget to audition the narrator for this actual book? It's such a disappointment to hear names destroyed. I won't abandon this one but the others have been far superior. I just love Becky's take on life and her rationalizations for her outrageous behavior! In each book I laugh out loud so frequently. I love it!

Worth buying BUT narrator is bad!

Once you get this far into the series, you, of course want to finish it. The story wasn't as good as the others, but it's worth reading. So I recommend it, however...

As others have mentioned the narrator was terrible. I adored Emily Gray in the first 3 Shopaholic books and the women who did 4th wasn't too bad. But the women who narrated this last book must not have listened to the other books. I cringed every time she pronounced "Suzy" instead of "Suz," plus the major company in the novel was pronounced wrong as well. Everyone sounded much older in this book, especially Suze and Luke.

But overall it's a really good series to read.

Love Shopaholic; don't love the narrator

I love Shopaholic books. But I think this narrator should have at least listened to the narrations of the previous books. That way, she wouldn't have changed the name of one of the main characters (Becky's best friend "Suze")!

Good book - awful narrator

I like this series, but the narrator was awful, and that took a lot of fun out of this book. I had to start over five times before I could bring myself to listen to this reader. And the 'Suzy' thing really got on my nerves. These books have been my treat during the long commute to work, and it was such a disappointment not to have the narrator from the first two books, but I listened to the end to see what Becky was up to now.

least favorite of the series

I have read/listened to all of Sophie Kinsella's books and look forward to the next one. This is my least favorite for the following reasons: The narrator portrays Luke in a different way from the other books--he comes across as too serious and sometimes mean when in the others he just seemed to be somewhat pleasantly perplexed by Becky. And Becky is inconsistent in her behavior as well--far too fawning over Luke and lacking the spunk that has made the character so appealing. Please--an obstetrician who used to have a relationship with the husband--who would ever consider going back a second time. That was unrealistic. It took me forever to finish listening, many car trips, a couple of flights, and a huge pile of ironing. I still look forward to the next installment of this couple's adventures but hope to see more of the characteristics in the first books.

Kinsella is great!

I love the entire Shopaholic series. Kinsella is really a nice easy, funny, witty author. I have not been disappointed.

Great Read!

Still, Becky continues to amaze me. I love to listen how she gets herself out these messes. This was a fun read! Kept the commutes tolerable :)

Total Chick Book

I was trying something new. I wanted a good story and I could not get into this one at all. I made it only 45 minutes. If you are into real life and its drama, pick this one. If you enjoy sci fi and fantasy this is not a take a break book.
