Amazing book and amazing narrative - feminist genius

It’s almost like Cecilia Ahern has crawled into the head of every woman to create this modern feminist gem of a book. There’s a story here for us all and not just one, I struggle to pick a favourite and identify with plenty. A funny moral for today’s world. Read it or listen to it and be moved.

Incredible

Absolutely wonderful, a fabulous piece of literature and commentary on modern society, full of morals. I plan to re-listen and re-read. Can not recommend highly enough. Beautifully narrated. Thank you!

lose yourself to find yourself

Fun fiction resonating with strong emotional messages. Though focused on women these sassy snapshots relate to all walks of humanity

LOVED THIS!

Lots of laughs to be had listening to this! Really like that there are several narrators to portray the different characters. Very powerful but humorous :)

Not for me

I always loved Cecilia's books but I have not enjoyed this one or Flawed. I couldn't get past the 3rd or 4th chapter.
Sorry

Disappointed with this one

I usually love this author but this book fell seriously short of the mark. Sad because I was desperate for her next book. Never been disappointed by Cecelia Ahern before.
