Publisher's Summary

Hot off the success of her best-selling Can You Keep a Secret?, Sophie Kinsella delivers another hilarious Becky Bloomwood novel. When last we left Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood), she and Luke had just married and she'd unveiled her big honeymoon surprise...around-the-globe plane tickets. World-weary 10 months later, the newlyweds return home filled with excitement to share the details of their amazing escapades.

But their arrival brings a different sort of homecoming, as Becky discovers some unbelievable news: she has a sister. Okay, a half-sister, but a sister nonetheless. Someone to share with, to have manicures with, to shop with! But, can it be, that Becky's long-lost sister hates to shop? Hates to spend, really. And is fascinated by rocks...not diamonds.

    Story
    "Shopaholic Strikes Again!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am slowly listening to all the Shopaholic books. I find them very entertaining, especially on long car trips! One reason I like this series is the British accent!


    What other book might you compare Shopaholic & Sister to and why?

    All the shopaholic books are similar. If you like one, you will like them all. If you like Bridget Jones, you will like Becky Brandon, née Bloomwood.


    Which character – as performed by Josephine Bailey – was your favorite?

    As for favorite characters-Becky of course and best friend Susan!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Since I listen in the car, I can sometimes find my self sitting in the driveway to get to the end of a chapter.

    "Disappointed in narration..."

    but great story, nonetheless. I was used to Emily Gray being Becky Bloomwood. I've started Shopaholic and Baby an it's a new narrator there too. All great narrations, just thought of Becky as Emily Gray! Don't know why the changes. However, I LOVEEEE the series... I can already tell I'm going to miss Becky when I'm all done!!!

    "Irritating and Unbelievable"

    I loved listening to past Shopaholic books. They were funny and entertaining - good, light listening. I felt irritable and bothered throughout most of this book - irritated with Becky's seemingless endless credit limit (really? the amount of things she bought on a year-long honeymoon?) and her drive to be sisters and friends with this ungrateful, boring, negative woman.

    Story
    "strange twists"
    Where does Shopaholic & Sister rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    probably lower down the list. But still interesting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The sister.


    Any additional comments?

    I still love Becky. As silly as she is, she gets into the weirdest situations, yet can get out of them, and still come out ahead. Altho. you would think, some day will she learn???

    "Love the story hate the narrator"

    The only reason I did not give this book all 5 stars was because of the lack luster narration. Ms. Bailey's voice is tiresome, monotone, and most of all just sounds too mature for Becky's character. Aside from that the story line is very well written, in the same Becky fashion. If you've enjoyed other Shopaholic books you will enjoy this one too, if you can get past the narration.

    "First of the Series I Liked"

    I totally disagree with everyone who thinks that Emily Grey was the better narrator. This is the first of the series that I laughed out loud and actually liked Becky. I HATED her in the first three books because the narrator portrayed her so whiny and dithering.

    "Great Listen,"

    As usual, Sophie Kinsella has written an adorable book. Interesting, funny and sweet she has written another shopaholic book and managed to include the adorable personality we all love while still creating a totally new story. I loved it, all of the shopaholic books are worth listening to.

    "Where is Emily Gray"

    I've thoroughly enjoyed listening to Emily Gray narrate and BE Becky Bloomwood. I'm sorry to see she does not return. The story itself is still fun and typical Becky.

    Emily Gray made Becky's character so fun and alive. She made it easy to forgive Becky when you know you should really want to ring Becky's neck.

    This narrator is pleasant to hear, she's just not the Becky I've become used to picturing in my imagination.
