Love Love Loved This Book

Would you consider the audio edition of The Single Girl's To-Do List to be better than the print version?

I think they both are great, however, I am always traveling on trains and buses and feel very sick looking down so the audio was really helpful for me.

Any additional comments?

I laughed out loud throughout the book and sympathized with the character on many occasions. It was really well spoken and easy to get into.

Good for newly single

I loved this book but it was made even better that I am newly single and listening to her made me see all the things I've been doing ! I love the author and am reading through all her books and I think this is one of the best :)

Excellent, better than reading it.

I'm always a little suspicious of audio books in the same way I am films as they can remove or limit the imagination reading induces. This book was different. I felt the audio actually enhanced it. Although I had read it many years ago this version brough the characters to life and I was able to visualise myself in the same situations. Excellent read, I'd recommend it.

Very light but very good.

This is very light and fluffy chick-lit, but one of the better ones. The characters are well written and funny, the plot is silly but enjoyable and over all I spent a very happy few hours listening to it. I have a bad cold so it was perfect easy listening. The narrator is great, and the story was great. I'll be looking out for more audiobooks from these two.

Easy, slightly predictable summer read

This book is not as good as Always the bride's maid, but the story moved along nicely and got addictive. Lindsey Kelk is good at comedy dialogue and awkward dating situations. The book was slightly predictable, which is the only reasons I'm not giving it top marks, but if you need to chill out and smile, this is a good one. Narrator is also good.

A fun read

What made the experience of listening to The Single Girl’s To-Do List the most enjoyable?

a great chicklit read. If you listen to the audio book version, it is amazing. I found myself laughing out loud and her hilarious friends.

I'll be well annoyed if you don't give this book a go........see...that was my British.

Not worth the money

What disappointed you about The Single Girl’s To-Do List?

I was upset that the "to do" list was basically all about how to get her next man. Thought this book was going to be empowering and about finding your true self, unattached to a significant other. About finding value in your friends and yourself. Instead it was all about how to nab a new man. Beyond frustrating.

What was most disappointing about Lindsey Kelk’s story?

None of the characters were likable at all. The protagonist was unpredictable and annoyingly hotheaded in the guise of "standing up for herself." Her "best friends" were really just one dimensional flunkies that didn't add anything to the story. And I really can't forgive her for reducing the "gay best friend" to nothing but a man who likes drinking and watching gay porn.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I liked the pacing of the narration, but there wasn't a whole lot of variety in the voices so it was tough to follow at times.

Save Your Credit!!!

Any additional comments?

The lead character Rachel is extraordinary unlikable. I really struggled to find any redeeming qualities whatsoever. She seemed ultra selfish, emotionally confused and had a great inability to pick up cues from others. She is crabby, downright rude and it irritates me how everyone is running around at her beck and call constantly trying to soothe her. Why? I really think that she is a one-dimensional character with no depth. Seriously unlikable.

In regards to the story, I have no idea why her two wonderful best friends actually love her so much. She never does anything great for them and the writer does a poor job of showing us why they go out of their way to do anything for her whatsoever. She won't let Emilie date her brother and Emilie spent days on Rachel's couch helping her with her problems. Maybe some back ground to their childhood and their friendship history would have helped to make it more understandable. Her mother and brother are very underdeveloped as well which is really too bad. The mother seems to be very interesting and would be nice to know more about her brother and why he is the kind of guy he is.

Spoiler alert! All of a sudden it's Dan? Where that come from? Feels like the author just tried to tie it up in the last chapter. Completely unbelievable. And why in the world did that character from New York send her a stunning dress? What did Rachel do to inspire that?? Rachel gave her one line from her point of view, which wasn't even advice and that wonderful stylist woman spent all that time helping her. Why? And why would she send her her a gorgeous expensive dress?

I really wanted to like this book and it's the first time I've ever given review and quite honestly I'm surprised I listened to it to the end but I suppose I was hoping for some revelation from Rachel to redeem her.

The reader didn't attempt to change her voice at all for the characters except for her very poor attempt at a Montreal/ Canadian accent. It was painful.

Don't even get me started on the Toronto chapters. Toronto is NOT how the author describes. I know this because I live in Toronto. Trust me, there is not maple syrup in every food dish. As a matter of fact I have lived here for 20 years and I've only had maple syrup on my pancakes! Lol! And as far as being polite goes, there are polite people in Toronto, and rude people in Toronto just like everywhere else. Don't understand why Rachel described smiling nodding greeting faces as she walked down the street. That does not happen. Total fantasy.

Lastly, it was beyond irritating to hear her always refer to to her best friend Matthew as gay constantly. "My gay best friend Matthew....A very big gay man... Of course my friend Matthew is gay... he's gay.... Gay, gay, gay" We get it, he's gay. I mean what best friend does that? I have a really close friend who's gay and it rarely comes up. Completely unbelievable. If I was her "gay best friend" I would have dumped her a long time ago. LoL

I know my review is i pretty harsh but I guess this this book rubbed me the wrong way. it's very, very rare that I don't like the main characters to the books I choose..

You may want to pass on this one.

Great narration and fun "you go girl" story

I liked the characters and the empowering transitions of the lead. It was a wonderful chick flick type book with enough glamour, travel, and rich gay friends to keep anyone entertained.

Great fun read

If you could sum up The Single Girl’s To-Do List in three words, what would they be?

You go girl!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Loved all 3 main characters.

What does Cassandra Harwood bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Just the thought of how strong we really are when we put our mind to it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The almost end!

Any additional comments?

Loved the story, how friends help and how your life changes.

Loved it!

I really enjoyed this one. it's a chick-lit, easy, funny, carpe diem - make changes type of book. I have heard it twice and loved it both times. only problem I have with this book is that the main character keeps calling her friend as her 'gay friend'. it bugged me. she didn't called her other friend as her 'straight friend'. both other than that, I really liked ir.

Fun Story, Boring Narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend the book to friends who like chick lit, but the actual written book-- not the audio book. The narrator read the book without any type of energy or flair. I think it could have been a great book if she had not half-slept through the performance.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Single Girl’s To-Do List?

Some of the actual items on the list were fun. It was quite predictable, but the sort of fluff I was looking for.

Would you be willing to try another one of Cassandra Harwood’s performances?

NO. She has a great voice, honestly, but she had no energy. Everything was very flat.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably. I think with a few edits and a focus on the actual to-do list instead of the predictable romance, it could make for a funny movie. I think the movie, if edited correctly would be funnier than the book

Any additional comments?

If you're looking for fluff chick lit, pick up the book and skip the audio version.

Pretty good

Pretty good - not as good as Always the Bridesmaid though - the characters were not as likeable.
