This is an amazingly funny book, I had tears coming down my face from laughing so hard. Mainly because I find myself doing the same types of things that the wonderful charachter Becky Bloomwood does to get out of debt. Positively fabulous! If you thought Bridget Jones' Diary was funny, wait until you read/hear Shopaholic.

Don't get me wrong, I actually like most of Sophie Kinsella's novels--just not this one. Kudos to the reader, who did an excellent job. I'm afraid, however, that this book and I were never exactly meant to be friends--although I did try.

The story of Shopaholic is enjoyable and light hearted.
Most of the way through it's very funny, though it has to be admitted, it's very silly at the same time. And as Becky spun her harmless lies and headed into scrape...after scrape... after scrape, I found myself laughing!

Interesting set-up for the rest of the series. Likeable heroine.
Very refreshingly, it's the main character's experience and development that form the bulk of the novel, with romance playing a smaller part than most chick lit. This means things aren't predictable, and female friendship, and creativity, are much more to the fore. I'll definitely be reading more Shopaholic
Narration could have been more nuanced, I'd give it 7/10 overall
This was a reread for the millionth time but first time on audiobook and Emily Gray was fantastic. You really felt the book along with her.
Such a great and different experience and also great to listen to whilst driving to and from work :)
Can't wait to continue the series on audiobooks.
