I downloaded this book because the sample sounded interesting enough, and I liked the narrator's voice, but it turned out to have every cliche imaginable. I thought the story would be more introspective but instead there were tales of generic "designer boutiques", conventional lust, and conventional wealth and the comforts of a material life.
I will say that was attracted by the devices used by the protagonist to extricate herself from all her predicaments, but that is the only thing that kept me listening.
But the most annoying aspects of this listen were the names - many of them rhyming, and all belonging to cardboard characters. Character names are important to the ambience of a novel and it seemed that this writer spent no more than 3 minutes fantasizing about what kinds of pretentious names the preppies would have. Just over the top.
Make another selection, if you can.
