Description

Nothing comes between Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) and her bargains. Neither act of God nor budget crunch can shatter her dreams of wall-to-wall Prada. Every milestone in her well-shopped life (travel, long-lost sister, marriage, pregnancy) inspires new vistas to explore in the name of retail therapy. But now she faces her greatest little challenge yet: Becky’s two-year-old daughter, Minnie.

While motherhood has been everything Becky dreamed it would be - Baby Dior, Little Marc Jacobs, and Dolce & Gabbana for toddlers - adorable Minnie is wreaking havoc everywhere she goes, from Harrods to her own christening. Her favorite word is “MINE!” and her penchant for Balenciaga bags, Chanel sunglasses, and online purchases has no rival under age five.

Becky is at her wits end. On top of this, she and her husband Luke are still living with her parents. Thankfully, it appears house buying attempt number four is a go! Until a huge financial crisis causes panic everywhere, and nobody wants to shop - not Becky’s personal shopping clientele, not her friends, nobody. And with Luke in the doldrums, it’s time for Becky to step in - with a party: A surprise birthday party for Luke (on a budget) is the perfect antidote to everyone’s woes. At first....

Attention, shoppers: don't miss more in the Shopaholic series.

I'm So Embarrassed!

Ok, I give in. I admit it. I'm a Shopaholic Junkie. I know ... it's chick lit, but I can't help it. I'm in love with Becky. She makes me laugh out loud. Her convoluted sense of reality and her warped values are winning character flaws that make her my guilty pleasure. Obviously, in my more sane moments, I realize that no one could be as stupid as Becky's husband, Luke. He falls for her twisted logic every time. In reality, at best he would never have married her and at worst he'd be out the door at the first sign of her outrageous justifications. But I hope he never figures her out.. I say Long live Becky and Sophie Kinsella!

Bring back Emily Gray!

Love Sophie Kinsella and am loving the audiobook so far, but really dread hearing Rosalyn Landor read anything! She's just not a good fit, in my opinion, with Becky. The first audiobooks narrated by Emily Gray were great - she should've done every Shopaholic book!!

Ugh

Thank goodness for Rosalyn Landor. If not for her, this book would have been unbearable. I've listened to all the Shopaholic books on audio. Yes, Grey is my preferred Becky but Landor is way better than the one who reads "and Sister."

The book itself was a huge disappointment. Becky just never learns. She never grows, develops or changes. She was a compulsive liar, completely unrealistic and utterly spoiled in the first book and now, several years later, she is exactly the same. This is a 29 year old woman who behaves like a teenager with daddy's credit card. Horriflyingly, she is responsible for a young child, who gives every indication she is becoming as spoiled as her overly indulged mother.

Kinsella had an opportunity here to develop Becky beyond the shallow consumer who is only interested in the next big thrill into a grown woman who understands that life is not a just party or reason to acquire more stuff. This will be the last Shopaholic book for me. The series is definitely played out.

The charm has worn off.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better story line with realistic edgy but exaggerated entanglements that befall our protagonist in dealing with her compulsion.

What was most disappointing about Sophie Kinsella’s story?

Embarrassingly redundent and her characters have become stupidly blind.

Would you be willing to try another one of Rosalyn Landor’s performances?

Although I missed the

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not a one.

Any additional comments?

Was this ghost written or cranked out to make money? The previous characters were always edgy and compulsive but intelligent. This lead and supporting characters were all shallow nitwits with no redeeming qualities. And the plot was nonexistent.

An Utter Waste of Time! Grow up Becky!

I loved the first Shopaholic books, but wonder if this immature woman will ever grow up. The charm has worn off Becky for me. I cannot imagine what Luke sees in this compulsive shopper. Will Becky ever learn that happiness is not found in her next purchase?

She hasn't changed since the first book; merely grown more tedious and boring. She lies constantly and we are to to find this charming, and to sympathize with her "problems"? In the midst of a financial crisis, Becky's main concern is throwing an elaborate and over-the-top birthday party for Luke? Can you imagine the negative press he would receive for this?

Life is supposed to be about growing up and changing, yet Becky remains as childish as ever.

The ideal next book (and you know there will be one) should be about Luke realizing what a crazy person he is married to and filing for divorce. Becky, I am officially "divorcing" you. This is the last Shopaholic book for me.

Can’t seem to get enough Shopaholic

I absolutely loved Mini Shopaholic. This is the story of Becky and her life after her daughter is born. This book seemed longer than the others which is not a bad thing at all I enjoyed every minute of it. This is the typical Shopaholic book where Becky is up to all her crazy ideas and trying not to shop (due to a bank failure and a promise to Luke). I really enjoyed the story and the narrator. If you like the other Shopaholic books you should like/love this one too. I really hope there is going to be a 7th book I just can’t seem to get enough Shopaholic.

Fluff, but good anyways

When I listen to these Shopaholic books, I find myself groaning at the antics of the characters and yelling at my stereo, but they are entertaining and they keep me awake when I am driving! The reading is good and you can't help but get caught up in the drama (even if it is a bit superficial).

Shallow, boring, bad

If I could rate this less than one star, I would. This book is so incredibly shallow. I have read the other Shopaholic books, and quite enjoyed them, even though Becky is such a shallow girl. She hasn't developed at all!! She has become a wife and a mother and she is still the silly, immature, shallow girl we met in the first book! She makes quite stupid decisions regarding her daughter and she spends a lot of time party-planning. I just couldn't finish this book! I hated it!

Becky unterhaltsam wie immer, aber ...

... Sprecherin leider überhaupt nicht mein Geschmack. Zu "posh". Schade. Das gilt (für mich) auch für die anderen "Kinsella-OVs" mit Rosalyn Landor. Wer bloß diese Idee hatte!?

Mini-Shopaholic

Ich habe alle Bücher der Becky Bloomwood Serie gelesen und war stets hellauf begeistert. Hier war ich enttäuscht. Und zwar, weil das Buch weniger von Minnie, sondern von Becky handelt. Ich hätte viel lieber mehr vom Kind gehört.

Speziell im 2. Teil waren einige sehr gelungene Plots bei der Realisierung einer Überraschungsparty. Was Becky sich da alles ausdenkt, nur um die Chose geheimzuhalten - herrlich.

Die Sprecherin hat einen sehr starken Oxford-Akzent, an dem ich mich erst gewöhnen musste. Ansonsten hat sie sehr gut gelesen und das Lauschen hat nach der Gewöhnung auch Spaß gemacht und mir knapp 14 fröhliche Stunden verschafft.

Tolles Buch - Sprecher nicht so toll

Die ganze Geschichte ist wieder eine sehr unterhaltsame und selbstironische Darstellung von Becky Brandon, dem Shopaholic. Ich habe mich sehr amüsiert und finde dass die Bücher der Becky-Reihe von Sophie Kinsella immer noch die besten sind. Leider spricht Emily Gray ihre Bücher nicht mehr, was ich sehr bedauere. Sie hat mir als Sprecherin tausend mal besser gefallen als Rosalyn Landor.

Leichte Unterhaltung ala Becky Brandon (Bloomwood)

Ich fand das Hörbuch klasse. Wer die Shopaholic-Serie kennt, weiß was ihn erwartet. Nach wie vor schaft es Becky sich in den totalen Schlamassel zu bringen und wieder heraus. Diesmal ist es die große Geburtstagsparty für Luke.
Sehr gut vorgelesen von Rosalyn Landor.
