DIsappointing

I was disappointed by how much I disliked this book as I'd found two other books by the author, 'Can You Keep a Secret' and 'Twenties Girl' light-weight but entertaining. The Mini of the title refers to Becky's spoilt toddler daughter. But the real shopaholic is Becky who displaces some of her desires to spend money by buying her daughter everything she demands. Becky is a vacuous, self-centred woman who wastes money on a grand scale even when her husband's bank is in crisis. I carried on listening as I had nothing else to accompany me on a long walk but didn't finish the recording as it just seemed to be catalogue of folly and stupidity with little to redeem it. If it was meant to be a satire it didn't work for me.

Glad I stuck with it

In my opinion this book was longer than the substance of the story allowed for. I almost didn’t finish this book, and contemplated not continuing several times; as I felt it was going on and on and not really evolving but the last 3 chapters were the best of the story.. so I am glad i carried on until the end.

Narration was really good, only downside was her impression of Luke’s male voice I found slightly off putting!

Exactly as you expect

If you have read any of the shopaholic series you will know what to expect, this does not disappoint.
The cring worthy antics continue in this book as with all that have gone before. If you are looking for high brow reading this book is not for you, but if you want a book that is just fun to read/hear and will make you sigh and laugh then this is for you.

Has shopaholic through it like rock!

If you enjoyed the other shopaholic books, you'll love this. Becky is as always, both loveable and ridiculous.

Story tellers voice suits book type and the frivolous easy going pace of this piece of chick lit really lends itself to audio.



Don't expect literary genius & you'll enjoy.

Cheerful read

This was an uplifting story - I’ve enjoyed the other shopaholic audio books by Sophie Kinsella and this one didn’t disappoint. The characters I now feel I know personally! The book was well narrated and characters came to life! Looking forward to another book in the series.

Becky Does It Again!

If you want a fun, laugh-out-loud book, this is the book for you! Very hard to stop listening to it when you arrive at work and have to get out of the car. Also, although you want to get to the end of the book to see how Becky will get out of the messes she gets into, you are sad when you reach the end.
I have loved all of the Shopaholic books and Mini Shopaholic didn't disappoint me a bit, and as usual, Emily Gray did a superb reading of the book. I can't imagine Becky's voice any other way!
I love Becky but as always, there are times when I want to slap her to get her to wise-up, but that's just her lovable, frustrating self.
The only disappointment I had with this book, is that it seems to be the last in the series. I have written on Sophie's Facebook page about this, so I am hoping that she writes some more.
