    Description

    With the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism that have made her Shopaholic novels beloved international best sellers, 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 128 pounds. Not 118, 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.

    Abridged! (from the wife)

    I absolutely love Sophie Kinsella and this is one of my favorites, but I didn't realize this was an abridged version. I wish they would make that more clear when buying books on audible because this isn't the first time I've gotten one that I found out was abridged while I was listening. I don't love that kind of surprise.

    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.

    Unfortunately, this version is abridged

    I LOVE this title and originally took out of the library but liked it so much I purchased it here. I didn't realize at the time that it was an abridged version - it's missing some of it's funniest parts! and all those great details that make these novels so wonderful. I enjoyed the version with Kate Reading narrating a lot more.

    Loved it!

    I love the way Sophie Kinsella takes you into another world and tells a story including all the really uncomfortable bits... she is witty and funny and rounds out the stories... she makes me laugh and cringe all in one paragraph... it’s a great escape from the perils of the real world.

    Simple and light book for the summer

    The story is very light and super funny. All the characters are incredibly well developed and you never know what’s gonna happen next.
    The only part I didn’t like is that Sophie kinsella really likes writing things along the lines of “I hear a voice calling my name across the room. I wonder who that could be. I look up. Oh It’s Jack”
    First of all, she writes that a lot. Second of all: can she not recognize the voices of people she has talked to multiple times? People have unique voices. That was kinda weird.

    The speaker in this audio book made the whole entire book just ten times better. The accents were brilliant and the acting in her voice just made you feel like you’re right there in the story. Amazing!

    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!
