HASH(0xa4229c18) out of 5 stars Another winner from Kinsella July 28 2005
By TSchlaack - Published on
Format: Audio Cassette
As usual I enjoyed this book by SK. I enjoy all of her books especially the Shopaholic series. This one continues her style of a fun fast paced story with a bit of the unreal thrown in.

One thing that bothered me about this one is that her family falls off the face of the earth. If she was in the trouble she was in one would have thought she would have at least gotten a call from her Mother the Barrister. But, that may have been a function of an abridged audio version.

Samantha is a riot learning to cook. I love the fact that she ends up taking lessons so that she can stop buying the food she is serving her employers. I also like the fact that she has to learn all of these things very quickly and decided that if she can be a lawyer she can definitely be a domestic.

SK also hits it right on the head when portraying "fair weather friends" as well as the friends that are true, suck as Lady Freya.

If you are a fan of chick lit this is another must read/listen.
HASH(0xa4229bf4) out of 5 stars Lightweight and unbelieveable, but genuinely funny Aug. 27 2009
By Sheri in Reho - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I just returned from a long car trip and had packed two audiobooks--this one for the ride up and another for the ride back--to keep me company and hopefully make the long hours on the road more bearable. I had heard about Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic books but had never read her. From what I'd read, I figured one of her books would be a nice, light read for the road. I was right about that--it definitely helped make my trip go faster and less boring.

Unfortunately, I found the story completely unbelievable and that made it difficult to totally lose myself in the story. I have no trouble believing that a city person working many hours at a high-stress job would find peace and happiness in a slower-paced town and a less-demanding job--I'm in a very similar situation myself--but the particular set of circumstances outlined in this story were, to me, beyond belief in a whole host of ways.

I think it is quite good luck that I ended up listening to this as an audiobook rather than reading a hard copy, because what made it an enjoyable experience was the woman who narrated the book. She performed nearly every character in the book in a distinctive voice, including various class differences of the British accent, which really added a lot of flavor to the experience. Her reading of the Trish character was so spot on that sometimes just the way she presented a line of dialogue made me laugh rather than the dialogue itself being funny.

One thing that bugged me a lot about the writing that perhaps wouldn't have bothered me if I'd read a hard copy was the constant "he said" "she answered", etc. In a conversation between two people, it isn't always necessary to constantly identify who is speaking, and I found this distracting.

If I could rate the individual elements of this book:

5 stars for the narration - the best element of the whole experience
3 stars for the overall story idea (less the believability element)
3 stars for the overall writing
1 star for believability

Based on this experience, I doubt that I will pick up any of Ms. Kinsella's books in hard copy, but I may opt for an audiobook in the future when I need another light read for the road, especially if it uses the same narrator.

For the record, I am not a fan of either chick lit or romance novels. If you ARE a fan of either or both, I think you'd probably quite enjoy this book.

The book does not provide a good story, as expected. Her "Shopaholic" book was much better. The book was entertaining, but story lacked depth and complexity.
HASH(0xa422e0e4) out of 5 stars Where's the Fun? Oct. 15 2012
By FiberBabble - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I was looking for some fluff, something with a sense of humor. This wasn't it. The book blurb makes it sound like fun. The cutesy-cover makes it look like fun. The tone of the writing make it sound like fun. I found no fun.

I listened to 75 minutes of the 6.5 hour CD version of the book; during that time I didn't find one character that I was remotely interested in, nor did I ever crack a smile (even an inward one). Seriously, if you're supposed to be clever, funny, or even mildly witty, don't you think you ought to put some of that stuff in the first 20% of the book?

I'm sure someone out there thinks this writer's stuff is hilarious. Wow, I SO did not. ::yawn::

HASH(0xa423736c) out of 5 stars Audio 5cd abrid. Fun fluffy chick lit book Aug. 21 2008
By Barbara Lane - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Samantha is a high powered lawyer who is happily working her way up towards a partnership then everything goes wrong at work and she runs off to the country. She is mistaken for someone applying for a live-in housekeepers job. Samantha needs somewhere to stay and maybe she could hid here for a while. Housework she hates and is not good at.

A funny, romantic, light story. A solicitor client of mine said she had already read it, loved it and loved all of the Sophie Kinsella series.
So even solicitors appreciate this story.

A light sunday afternoon read at the beach or infront of the log fire.
