Publisher's Summary

Nervous flyer Emma is sitting on a turbulent plane. She really thinks that this could be her last moment. So she starts telling the man sitting next to her all her innermost secrets: How she scans the backs of intellectual books and pretends she's read them. How she's not sure if she has a G-Spot. How she feels like a fraud at work. How she once threw a troublesome client file in the bin. If ever there was a bare soul, it's hers. She survives the flight, of course, and the next morning the famous boss of the whole mega corporation she works for is coming for a look at the UK branch. As he walks around, Emma looks up and realises ­ it's the man from the plane.

An enjoyable listen

This is my first taste of Sophie Kinsella's writing and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Sure it will never be a classic fiction piece, but for light, fun listening it's well worth the effort. Mind you, I did want to shake the central character Emma sometimes, especially near the end when things got scary for her with something her friend was doing against her wishes, but I suppose the author needed to wring it out for a dramatic ending.

If you can forgive that, you'll be fine.

The narrator did a great job too!

Pathetic

WHAT A WASTE OF TIME!! A holiday read? Truly no one can be THIS desperate?

The story line is worse than any Mills and Boons paperback I've ever read.

I truly thought I could do with an easy listen whilst on holiday - I couldn't even get past chapter 5 and that's after fast forwarding!!

This doesn't even deserve 1 star, but I had to put down a rating.

I also don't like the narrator her voice is not "listeanable".

Oh the absolute worst ever - Don't waster your credits or your megs to download.

Laugh out loud moments,! Brought to life by brilliant narrator

Ok, so it’s not my usual genre, I’m usually a crime thriller enthusiast. But I am so glad I bought this audiobook.

Truly humorous, better than the Bridget Jones books BY A MILE.

The book was really brought to life by the exceptional narration of Gracie Thomas. How she brought Emma to life, conveying every single emotion, from the mortifying spraying of execs in Glasgow, to fright on the flight and every “NO!! Noooooo” moment throughout the book.

The story was fab, the narrator made it exceptional.

I’ll definitely listen to this one again and again whenever I’m feeling a little down.... it’s just brilliant.

Get this book for a little joy and humour in your day

This book is very funny

I needed an easy to listen to book, my last was heavy going. This was perfect. Quick flowing and laugh out loud. I couldn't wait to get back to it. I found myself wondering what she was up to! It's the sort of book my wife would give me to read on holiday after she had finished reading it. I enjoyed this very much.

Easy listening

This book is very easy to listen too. It was a easy to follow story with good humour throughout. Although a predictable story it was compelling to listen too. A lighthearted book that is amusing and fun. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a feel good factor with some laughs.
