So I've read the book before, loved it, and decided to give the audible a try since its been years.
Since the others have all written about how great the book is already, I'll skip that part and just write about the narrator, and this book as an "audible", even though I do subscibe to that same opinion as well.
Christine Marshall really makes the book come alive. Pleasant to listen to, her voice has perfect intonation without being annoying, she really makes the characters come alive and relatable and real.
The "something borrowed" audible had (I think?) an older woman narrating which did not match the character at all, and Darcy's voice in that was shrill and annoying. In this, its just right.
Its a great listen.

As much as I love "Something Borrowed", "Something Blue" is hands down my favorite of the two. The writing here is just as good but Darcy as a narrator is more interesting than Rachel. And her observations are wittier and snarkier which makes it a lot more fun. The ending is definitely predictable but Darcy's journey to her happily ever after is hard fought and well deserved and I loved watching her get there.
I was a little concerned when I saw that the narrator had changed because I really enjoyed Jennifer Wiltsie's Darcy but Christine Marshall did a great job.

Sometimes you just need some light reading to relax. Emily Giffin and her Something Borrowed and Something Blue are classics and books that I enjoy reading every couple of years.
The recorded audiobook was very enjoyable and it was incredibly similar to Kate Hudson’s, who portrayed Darcy in the Something Borrowed film.
Ultimately this is a book about friendship and personal growth and one of my all time favourites.
Loved the first novel and this as a sequel was good too. The only qualm I have is the mixed feelings about the timing of the love match and how believable it was. There were some ironic twists which on its own we're cute but in the scheme of the prequel, lost its punch. It was read well and the performance was on par with Darcy. If you liked Something Borrowed, this is a nice sequel to answer your 'what happens next' questions.
