This is a great story. While the writing style is the same as her Shopaholic series, the character of Samantha is quite different in that she works far too much while Rebecca Bloomwood of the Shopaholic series shops too much. Samantha's situation is almost reminiscent of the romantic novels of the early twentieth century which is funny to say because Kinsella has been pigeon-holed in the 'chick-lit' category. I love this story.
I worked out to this CD.It's a fun listen. It's all about a lawyer who's fired from her job and ends up accidently applying for a job as a housekeeper, a job she is NOT qualified for!! I really enjoyed it!
This book was a humorous and delightful escape from the daily commute. It made me laugh out loud. The reader is fabulous. My only disappointment was that the book seemed to end abruptly. I did not want it to end at all and would have preferred a more gradual closure.
I've come to appreciate the fact that there's nothing better for a long workday commute than a Sophie Kinsella audio book! This one isn't quite as good as others, but it still made for an entertaining ride.
It starts out a little slow. I almost decided not to listen to it. Thank Goodness I stuck it out because it is a wonderful book. Very far-fetched, but delightfully so. I laughed frequently and smiled the rest of the time.
The book kept me interested for several days and I loved the narrator who also helped keep the story fresh and interesting. It was well read. In fact I purchased 2 more audio books by this author and I listen to it on the way to work and back home. I did not really expect profanity in the book but there were a few "F" bombs but they were funny. Overall I would recommend for entertainmnet purposes.
Loved this story. Samantha is clever in work but not in life really, but I would love to have the chance to just run away like she did and start over. The narrator did a great job with all the voices. It was romantic, sexy and fun. Great ending!
