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.

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.

Keeps you awake

Warning. Don't listen to this book in bed before going to sleep. It makes you laugh so much that you will still be awake hours later. It is so funny it is not just for women - my husband wanted to know what I found so funny and he loved it as well.

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!

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.
