Avis de l'équipe

Best-selling author Marian Keyes delivers another outstanding audiobook with her latest novel The Woman Who Stole My Life, narrated by Aoife McMahon. Stella Sweeney is an ordinary woman, the average Dublin housewife, whose life changes beyond recognition and leads her down an incredible path of success. Upon her return to her old life, she realises just how much everything and nothing has changed. Now she must choose where to turn – stay in her old life or forge ahead into a new one. This stunning novel will sweep you up as you travel with Stella through the changes that life inevitably throws us all. Available now from Audible.

Description

One day, sitting in traffic, Stella Sweeney attempts a good deed. The resulting car crash changes her life.

But in this event is born the seed of something which will take Stella thousands of miles from her old life, turning an ordinary woman into a superstar, wrenching her whole family apart. For the first time real, honest-to-goodness happiness is just within her reach.

But is Stella Sweeney, Dublin housewife, ready to grasp it?

Disappointing

I usually really like Marian Keyes, but this one was very disappointing. The main character and her love interest were both really annoying and their relationship was boring. I just didn’t get hooked in like I usually do with MK.

Enjoyable book

Really enjoyed the book and the narration. Good storyline and the narrator did the voices really well. Highly recommend it.

Stella a bit irritating

I enjoyed the beginning and the endinf but the middle dragged on. Felt the heroine was without a backbone.

Some amusing parts redeemed the book.

Steer clear

Didn't like a single character. Very predictable and full of cliches. Not like Marian Keyes' usual style at all.

Great narration story didn’t hold my attention

I enjoyed the narration but the story wasn’t as funny as other Keyes books.
I didn’t like the main character.

Not Her best

I generally love Marian Keyes but this was a bit disappointing. It was slow and predictable and had a few plot holes.

I couldn't finish. Gave up after about 5 hours.

What disappointed you about The Woman Who Stole My Life?

It Just didn't go anywhere. I felt like I was on a loop going round and round.

What was most disappointing about Marian Keyes’s story?

So much back and forth but nothing actually happened. A lot of blah,blah,blah.

What aspect of Aoife McMahon’s performance would you have changed?

Her performance was adequate and not my reason for disliking the book. I just had to get accustomed to her Irish accent which was pleasant. I did not like the way she did male voices. It made them all sound like dim witted thugs.

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

Not really.

Any additional comments?

I read many Keyes books about 10 years ago. I loved Watermelon, Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married and Last Chance Saloon, but I don't see myself reading another one in the future.

Loved It

If you could sum up The Woman Who Stole My Life in three words, what would they be?

Fun, engaging and entertaining

What other book might you compare The Woman Who Stole My Life to and why?

I can only compare to other Marian Keyes books. I have enjoyed listening to all of them.

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

Have not listened to any of her narrations,

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a lot.

it was ok...

I loved the first half of this book and thought i made a great choice. It was funny and engaging, and it had depth. But as the story progressed it seemed to get more shallow and predictable. It was very well read throughout.
I am not sure if I would try another one of Marian Keyes- maybe.

The Woman who stole my life

Any additional comments?

This was a great book. It was wonderful to listen a Marian Keyes book again, it has been ages. The narration was excellent, I have listened to her a few times now and always enjoy her.
The story had me hooked from the beginning and I enjoyed every minute of it.

ungewöhnlich

Das Hörbuch gefiel mir gut. Eine ungewöhnlich Geschichte, die zunächst (etwas verwirrend für mich) zu verschiedenen Zeiten spielt, die sich dann immer mehr annähern. Die Sprecherin liest gut vor. Ich würde das Buch empfehlen. Manches fand ich etwas eigenartig zwischendrin (das Bett, das schaukelt z.B), weshalb ich einen Stern abziehe.

Ausgezeichnet!

Spannende Geschichte vom ersten Moment an, sehr angenehme Sprecherin - die Authentizität ist durch den irischen Akzent absolut gegeben. Top!
