Sex, Lies and Fairytales

Awful! Sorry, that's the first word that springs to mind with this book. The dialogue in the book is pretentious and the narrator's voice is boring. There were only two or three passages where my attention was grabbed and I began to care what happened to the characters. Then the author lost it again and it was back to mediocrity. I don't normally write reviews about books I don't like, but I just want others to avoid wasting their money and time!

Fun and engaging way to pass the time

I recommend both of Kate Thompson's books as great summer reads, or should I say listens. Typical "chicklet" material, but fun with well developed characters. What is even more amazing is the author's ability to narrate the book - great inflection and use of voices for each character.

Oh, and be sure to listen in order. I made the mistake of starting with "Sex, Lies and Fairytales". That hooked me to back track and get the first - "Living the Dream". I still greatly enjoyed the first, but would have liked it better without some of the knowledge of the characters and the outcome from the second book.

Lacking variety or excitement

This book was very very boring and that is being nice. I did not care about any of the characters. This book was worse than the first book. I could not finish this book and I tried very hard.
