" Totally implausible story with few/no believably interesting characters, and lots of irritating ones. Many reviewers have chritisised Caroline Lee's narration of this rediculous book, but for me her interpretation of the characters was the only feature that kept me with it until the end. Annoying as some of the characters are (yes the characters, not Caroline Lee-s voice!), her interpretation was what won me over. I thought she nuanced the personalities well & I was never confused on which character she was voicing, even the male ones. Outside of Caroline Lee's narration, I would have given up on this audiobook probably a quarter the way through as it us such a stupid, intellectually insulting story.
As negative as my review of this audiobook is, surprisingly it is actually better than both the book and movie. The book tried way too hard to convince with a rediculous premise and the TV series differed from the book's storyline so much that it was at times unrecognisable as an adaptation of the book. Not a fan of Nicole Kidman either (overexposed, overrated frozen-face actor imo & many others), so I thought the leading character was mis-cast from the get-go. Melissa Macarthy was the best part of the series. "
