The Undomestic Goddess (AudioCD) (Abridged)
The Undomestic Goddess - AudioCD - Abridged Author:Sophie Kinsella, Katherine Kellgren (Narrator) Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. She's made a mistake so huge, it'll wreck any chance of a partnership. — Going into utter meltdown, she walks out of her London office, gets on a train, and ends up in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she's mistaken for an inter... more »viewee and finds herself being offered a job as housekeeper. Her employers have no idea they've hired a lawyer-and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven. She can't sew on a button, bake a potato, or get the #@%# ironing board to open. How she takes a deep breath and begins to cope-and finds love-is a story as delicious as the bread she learns to bake.
But will her old life ever catch up with her? And if it does . . . will she want it back
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.
