Publisher's Summary

Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is in Hollywood! It's as if all her life has been leading to this moment. She's hanging out with the stars…or at least she will be, when she finally gets to meet movie superstar Sage Seymour, whom husband Luke is now managing.
There's so much to see and do! And getting Minnie through the hurdles for her A-list Hollywood pre-school will require some…er…help.
Becky sets her heart on a new career - she's going to be a celebrity stylist. Red carpet, here she comes! But Becky soon finds it's tough in Tinseltown.
Luckily her best friend, Suze, comes over to keep her company, and together they embark on the Hollywood insider trail. But somehow...things aren't quite working out as they’d hoped.
Then Becky's big chance comes, and it's an opportunity that money can't buy. But will it cost her too much?

Dreadful

Would you try another book written by Sophie Kinsella or narrated by Clare Corbett?

Nope - The attempt to drag this out into a sequel when she had already prolonged the story line, makes Sophie Kinsella as shallow as she has made the characters in the book


What was most disappointing about Sophie Kinsella’s story?

The lack of effort/ending


What didn’t you like about Clare Corbett’s performance?

Perfect


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shopaholic to the Stars?

I probably would have finished writing the book.....


Any additional comments?

Waste of a credit. Utterly disappointing and greedy of the writer. Some parts of this dragged on when they could infact have been cut to make space for completing the storyline.

Disappointed

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It passed the time of day and in parts was ok


What was most disappointing about Sophie Kinsella’s story?

The ending. I listened to it twice thinking I may have fallen asleep and skipped a chapter. I hadn't ! The ending was really bad. The middle bit was ok, but the characters all seemed to have had a personality transplant. I did really like the Shopaholic series, but this was most definitely the worst one.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

1) a much better ending - there was quite a lot of build up to it, but then it was as though the book had been concluded without the last 2 chapters being completed

2) keeping the character personalities the same


Was Shopaholic to the Stars worth the listening time?

It wasn't offensive, it passed some time. I'd listen to the others in the series again, I wouldn't listen to this one again.


Any additional comments?

Overall quite disappointed. I'd bought this book as soon as it came out. I'm presuming that the author has left the ending open ended for a sequel - bearing in mind it takes a good couple of years for this, I'll have completely lost all interest - the story in this respect is weak and probably not something I'd be that interested in reading / listening to.
