Publisher's Summary

Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at 30, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates - just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago.

Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive - but surely this is her worst decision yet. And Ben’s colleague Lorcan fears that this hasty marriage will ruin his friend’s career. To keep Lottie and Ben from making a terrible mistake, Fliss concocts an elaborate scheme to sabotage their wedding night. As she and Lorcan jet off to Ikonos in pursuit, Lottie and Ben are in for a honeymoon to remember, for better...or worse.

    "Another fun book by Sophie!"

    I laughed at all the antics of the two sisters! I love Kinsella's books and this one especially. I highly recommend!

    "Sophie Kinsella does it again!"
    What made the experience of listening to Wedding Night the most enjoyable?

    Having separate narrators really gave me the sense of listening to the private thoughts of these two sisters.


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

    As I have a long drive to work, I looked forward to my morning drive when I could, once again, find out what Lottie and Fliss were up to!

    "Light entertainment but not Kinsella's best."
    Any additional comments?

    If you have never read a Sophie Kinsella book, don't start here. This is a pretty standard offering from SK, but not close to her best work. It has the usual amusing preposterous plotting but lacks the charm of her previous work and is much more R Rated than usual (language and sexy stuff). I suppose the premise of one sister trying to consummate her marriage and have a romantic wedding night, while the other sister tries to stop that from happening should have clued me in to that. There were a couple of laugh out loud moments but not enough to make this a recommendable read. The narration was excellent though. No complaints there.

    A typical Sophie Kinella book, told this time from different character perspectives. An enjoyable listen.

    "Kinsella always delivers.."
    Where does Wedding Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I always enjoy a Sophie Kinsella book. They are always fun and I look forward to my commute when I have it on my ipod.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lorcan. I really liked him and how he and Fliss interacted. I loved that we had two protagonists in this novel.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to all of her Sophie Kinsella books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How Lorcan interacted with Fliss and her son. He was great.

    "I love Sophie Kinsella"

    and this one did not disappoint me, both characters were so amusing, and even though the story was pretty outlandish, it made me laugh outloud so often. If you are looking for a really light amusing summer read this is it.

    "Fun, light read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was a light read. It is definitely a book for women.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked how there were multiple people narrating the book. It made it more interesting to listen to. Rather than one person trying to do all the characters. It was a light read, and it made me want to travel. There are some underlying lessons in it as well. Some scenes are not appropriate for children.

    Story
    "Ludicrous, could not conceive such an absurdity."

    First, I 'd like to say that the narrators do a good job, I just can't stand the voice of Jayne Entwistle. It's irritating. But it is well read.

    About the book, HOLY HORRIBLE!!! I have read five other Sophie Kinsella books and liked them all, but this one is absurd. The story line is ridiculous. Woman, Lottie, thinks boyfriend is going to propose and when he doesn't she meets up with old flame and decides to get married to him instead. Sister, Fliss, is going through a bitter divorce and has a 7 year old boy or is it 9, I don't know but who cares because it's not really about him at all. This part is about a third of the book, the only part that I could listen to. The rest of the book, which is most of the book, is how the sister, Fliss, tries to keep Lottie and the new flame from having sex on their wedding night because she thinks she's made a terrible mistake.

    Let's start with the fact that a woman going through a terrible divorce with a child and having a fling herself, would never find herself totally obsessed (meaning this is the only thing she does) with keeping her sister from having sex on her wedding night... this is ALL SHE DOES.

    Then Lottie, a 33 year old woman (previously living with her boyfriend), wants to have a shotgun wedding but needs to WAIT to have sex until her wedding night!!!! Riiiiight! ok fine...Let us overlook that. And I should not have because the circumstances become ridiculous. It's one thing to want to make it perfect on your wedding night but any consenting adult would never find him or herself in this situation ...ridiculous. The last 7 chapters were all about how the butler kept coming in the room and interrupting them from having sex, again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again...all orquestrated by the sister, who takes the kid out of school to follow crazy Lottie to Ikonos to stop her from having sex. Totally absurd!!!

    So the last seven chapters I used the "skip to next chapter button" and listened for a few seconds and it was the same thing...butler interrupts with cookies, complimentary messages, upgrades, blah blah blah, trip to exotic location where you can see the allergic reaction coming a mile away, also the night of too many drinks, a bigger bed and on and on and on. It's enough to drive you insane. You just don't care at all what happens to any of them or if they ever do it. Even constantly chaperoned teenagers could have found a moment to do it. From the words of another reviewer, "get a cheap motel and do it already", so you can put me out of my misery.

    So because of this book, I am taking extra time to search for a book with substance, to read all the reviews thoroughly, and to leave a detail review to help others with their selection. Don't waste your time, credit or money! Skip it! "The Undomesticated Goddess" is better, "Can You Keep a Secret", "Remember Me", and even "I Got Your Number" was fantastic compared to this.

    "Silly.............but Fun!"

    I am a huge Sophie Kinsella fan..........believe I have read just about everything she has written. Definitely preferred the Shopoholic books to her stand-alones.

    Wedding Night is a quick read and fun.........the narrators play a huge part in making this true.

    "Ho - Hum"

    You know, every summer there are a couple of songs they play on the radio - CONTINUOUSLY... so by the end of the summer, you cringe when you hear them? I'm afraid this book reminded me of that feeling.

    I adore Sophie Kinsella - I do - However, this book is like a tired song... it was just not fun to listen to. It was like a song played one too many times. You've heard it before and there's nothing new about it.
