Description

With the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism that have made her Shopaholic novels beloved international bestsellers, Sophie Kinsella delivers a hilarious new novel and an unforgettable new character. Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets.

Secrets from her mother:
I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur. Sammy the goldfish in my parents' kitchen is not the same goldfish that Mum gave me to look after when she and Dad were in Egypt.

Secrets from her boyfriend:
I weigh one hundred and twenty-eight pounds. Not one eighteen, like Connor thinks. I've always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.

From her colleagues:
When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.) It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times.

Secrets she wouldn't share with anyone in the world:
My G-string is hurting me. I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is.

Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger.

But come Monday morning, Emma's office is abuzz about the arrival of Jack Harper, the company's elusive CEO. Suddenly Emma is face-to-face with the stranger from the plane, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her. Things couldn't possibly get worse. Until they do.

Liked this book a lot

The book had a lot of silly, funny things, but there was an undercurrent that kept it from being just fluff. Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorites. I am not a fan of abridged books, but I wanted to listen to the story narrated by Emily Gray - she is perfect for Sophie Kinsella books. The Shopaholic books were wonderful at the beginning of the series when they were narrated by Emily Gray - amazing. Later in the series the second narrator was OK, but at the end of the series the narrator was not OK at all. The reader can make a book come alive - or kill the book. When I read reviews that complain about the narrator, I download the book on Kindle instead of suffering through a bad read. This book was just right.

Couldn't Stop Listening

This book was the most entertaining book I've downloaded since The Devil Wears Prada. I found tasks to do at work that wouldn't require a lot of brain power just so I could keep listening. I went to dinner with my husband and gave him my pda so he could play Jawbreaker and I wouldn't feel guilty for listening to the book while waiting for dinner. It's a very lighthearted romp and was easy to get drawn into the story and the characters. I could have done without the f* word, but otherwise I loved it.

Funny romantic comedy

Loved the story but wish it didn't have some if the language. It's not much but I don't think the story needed it.

Super funny!

I really loved this story, it was so entertaining. I would recommed it to anyone. Just don't start it before bed, because you will want to finish the whole thing.

Funny...!

Very funny book, loved the character, and enjoyed the narrator as well. Made my mother and sister listen too and they couldn't get enough! I can't wait until the next book from Sophie Kinsella!

Exciting and Fresh

This book was exciting and fresh for a leisure book. I travel for work and enjoyed this so much, I listened to it twice! I could actually see this story happening in real life. The main character at times can be a little annoying but who could blame her with the situation that she finds herself in. All in all, an excellent book to listen to anytime.

Fun!

The story is not as developed as her Shopaholic series, but it's still a fun read. This new updated reader is so much better than the original.

Got me laughing

Loved it! I wish I had downloaded the unabridged though, I didn't realize I selected this one, but it was very funny nonetheless.

Ridiculous plot. Wasted my credit on this.

Story is ridiculous. 'Remember me' is a thousand times better. The heroine is a shallow dimwit and an insult to any girl.

bis zum bitteren Ende

Nachdem mir eine Freundin das Buch "Twenties Girl" von Sophie Kinsella geliehen hatte und ich es sehr lustig fand, dachte ich mir, dass ich es mal mit diesem Hörbuch versuche. Es ist die gekürzte Version die ich gehört habe. Leider muss ich sagen, dass das Buch wenig originelle oder witzige Szenen darstellt. Die Handlungen der Heldin sind unlogisch und dramatische Szenen werden oftmals dadurch produziert, dass sie immer erst 10 Minuten zu spät anfängt zu handeln - und dadurch immer zu spät das Richtige nicht mehr tun kann. Der Held ist ein extrem dominanter Mann, dessen Charme mir in keiner Weise zugänglich wird. Die Nebenfiguren bleiben blasse Skizzen. Besonders die Bösartigkeit der Kollegen und Kolleginnen gegenüber der Heldin bleiben unerklärt. Ich habe das Hörbuch bis zum Ende gehört, auf der Suche nach den positiven Seiten der Geschichte. Vielleicht ist die ungekürzte Fassung besser.

funny, amusing and entertaining

This audiobook is absolutely great. It is such funny and thrilling at the same time I had to listen to the whole book in one go. Fortunately this audiobook is abbridged otherwise I would not have been approachible for a very long time ;o) The English is quite good understandibly even for a german listener who only speaks and listens to english occasionally. Summing up: This audiobook is not only recommendable but a must for each one liking funny women stuff!
