Am I getting more mature...

... Or are the characters in Sophie Kinsella's books getting more stupid with every new book? This was rather unbearable and soooo slow..

Incredibly boring

I couldn’t return this because I’d hit the return limit so I persevered until the end but it was truly awful. No storyline to speak of, the main character was very unlikeable and it was first world problems at its best.

Very boring...

The main character hides under the table for most of the story and struggles to decide if she should get out during the party she crashed into...
Omg... I really struggled to finish it...
Not typical Sophie Kinsella's funny and engaging story...

Heartwarming

A beautiful story of love, soul connection, laying down roots and family. Really enjoyed this one, nice easy listen, very funny in places, quirky and upbeat. Brilliantly narrated. Five stars from me.

Another good read from Sophie

I love the narrator she is utterly engaging and perfect for this type of book. The story is just sweet and easy to listen to. The only thing missing for me is Sophie's humour coming through more. I missed that side to her. However, it's a good listen and I wasn't disappointed.

So DULL

I was so shocked by how boring this nothing story was. Honestly nothing happens and the timeline is basically one evening.
Considering there are so many good reviews I felt I needed to even things up a bit because I thought it was the most boring book I’ve listened to in a long time!

Slow start

I found this difficult to get into and nearly gave up. I found the characters quite annoying and the plot far fetched and predictable. However by half way through it got better and I managed to see it through. I think the main problem is that I didn’t like the narrator- I find her voice a bit whiney and too high pitched. Or maybe I have just grown out of Sophie Kinsella stories.

Great story

A lovely story with a heartwarming theme. Very family orientated. It teaches you that things are not always what they seem. Once you’ve flown the proverbial nest you can’t assume that what you see on the surface of your family’s ways and actions are always true.
I loved Effie and the way she had developed throughout the story. She has learned some truths about herself whilst being in hidden attendance to the party which I feel helps her to develop as a person.

Moral of the story. There is always more going on under the surface than meets the eye.

Not her usual

a little repetitive and not a lot of content. easy listening but some voices sound the same and so lose track.

The most unpleasant character

Totally struggled to finish. The main character is so unpleasant with her sheer inability to be remotely polite and decent. I cannot believe Joe saw smth in her ever and I caught myself secretely cheering for her to fail.
