    1. Zoë on said:

      Sophie Kinsella strikes again Although most of her books deal with both the professional world and relationships, she has managed to make every story unique and immensely entertaining Although I didn t enjoy this novel quite as much as I ve Got Your Number, it still immediately sucked me in and wouldn t let me stop reading until I finished I think if I hadn t read this right after IGYN my favorite book by her , I would have given it a full 5 5 stars, but blame Sophie Kinsella for making her book [...]

      4.25This was the first Sophie Kinsella book I ever read and it will remain my favourite My mum actually picked this up for me, because she liked the blurb on the back She would never read this sort of book she is into China Meavile, Dan Simmons and Stephen King Not the sort of stuff I read At first, I was hesitant, but I started reading this in the car on the way home and it was addictive I just could not stop this book is romantic, moving with just the right amount of funny it had a few of thos [...]

      As you d expect, the story is a sitcom come to life a work obsessed attorney loses her job in a dramatic way and then plunges alone into the countryside la Jane Eyre, only to wind up being taken in as a housekeeper by some nouveau riche couple The twist is get ready she doesn t know how to cook Or run a washing machine You can imagine the hilarity In fact, you have to imagine the hilarity, because there isn t much written for you That s not to say the book isn t entertaining It moves quickly, an [...]

      This story is about a 20 something, workaholic lawyer named Samantha Sam leaves her job after making a huge mistake that costs her firm millions of dollars She has put her whole life into this job, trying to become partner, and now it s over She has a major meltdown, and ends up miles from home in the middle of nowhere working as a maid to a family that doesn t know anything about her true identity She also doesn t know anything at all about being a maid as you can probably guess by the title Th [...]

    5. Dija on said:

      After reading several books by Kinsella, the only major complaint I have is that the endings are extremely unsatisfying She builds up the character development and story so, so well, only to have it all end just shy of the perfect HEA The first thought I usually have after finishing her books is, Wait, what That s it More than in Kinsella s other novels, this factor is impossible to ignore in The Undomestic Goddess Samantha comes a long way from being a lawyer zombie to a content housekeeper, bu [...]

      I keep reading Sophie Kinsella books because they re such a light, fast read and everything s so upbeat But I m also starting to get annoyed at how the main characters LIE SO MUCH Most of their problems would be gone if they could just tell the truth And the guys are always like oh that s totally fine nbd when everything comes out in the end Samantha loses 50 million in her job as a lawyer, so she flees to the countryside and accidentally gets a job as a housekeeper She somehow is unable to cook [...]

    8. Ferdy on said:

      1.5 stars SpoilersThe worst Kinsella book I ve read so far, it wasn t totally awful but it was pretty bad The story was even far fetched and the main character even daft than the other Kinsella heroines combined The heroine Samantha was meant to be an Oxbridge educated lawyer with years of experience in the best law firm in the country, yet somehow she read like a grade A idiot I don t know why authors bother giving their main characters high IQ s and super smart careers when they can only po [...]

    9. Xanthia on said:

      I must confess Sophie Kinsella replaced Sarah Dessen and Cecelia Ahern in my top authors I love how she writes I haven t tried the shopaholic series but I ve read her three books following that series which are, Remember Me , Can You Keep a Secret and The Undomestic Goddess All her characters are witty They are also serious parts but with the way she writes and the way her characters think are very light There s also a mixture of romance in her books which gives her all the reason to be my favo [...]

    10. Mimsey Thompson on said:

      I read Kinsella s Confessions of a Shopaholic last year and enjoyed it very much Since then, I haven t found the time to read her sequels, but recently, I picked up The Undomestic Goddess from the library and started reading Much to my surprise, I found her main characters to be quite similar they re both smart women with flighty thoughts who are put into extraordinary circumstances and come out better than anyone could have imagined Akin to Bridget Jones and all her wobbly bits As entertaining [...]

    11. Sara on said:

      This book is one of my favorites It s simply hilarious Smart, witty, and romantic.The switch from sharp lawyer to house maid is genius.In the plot there s also a hidden agenda that our heroine has to uncover and that keeps the reader on edge This is Kinsella at her best.Funny Quote My eye flicks to the figure quoted in bold under Weekly Salary It s slightly less than I charged per hour as a lawyer.

    12. Kerry on said:

      I don t know, I guess I m not much of a Sophie Kinsella fan I ve read a couple of her Shopaholic books as well as this one, and they just annoy me Her characters are twits Even in this one, where the main character is an intelligent, well educated, about to become partner Lawyer she s still a twit I highly doubt I will subject myself to any further twittery and shall skip her books in the future.

      Actual rating 4.75What a great read I really loved this one No love triangles or weird romances Nathaniel is a new book boyfriend Loved the message in this book as well.

    14. Sky on said:

      True rating 3.5 starsSo lately, every book I pick up feels too heavy and serious and I just want a light hearted laugh So Haley recommended I read this book, which is exactly what I need Although I had a few problems with this book, I enjoyed it immensely.The undomestic Goddess follows a 29 year old Lawyer named Samantha, who from the age of 12 was so focused on her career and going to the next level, she forgot how to live Samantha is a workaholic, a perfectionist, so used to never making mista [...]

    15. DeB MaRtEnS on said:

      Unlike Sophie Kinsella s Shopaholic series, Undomestic Goddess features a much less ditzy woman front and centre in this very light yet original book Although a bit dated written in 2006 with its Blackberry devices for texting, computers for email and cell phones for calls only, the story is filled with the typical Kinsella contentious creatures as well as those truly most admirable who either trip up our heroine Arden or offer her safe haven I needed a flight of fancy after reading a number of [...]

      This was the first Sophie Kinsella book I was really into The last few weren t bad, but the protagonists drove me nuts they were so annoying Samantha had me pulling my hair out in the beginning, but I grew to like her pretty quickly At first I was so frustrated about the whole lie about everything situation, but then it became hilarious I love the Geigers D a stupid bunch but they re awesome and I love them Nathaniel and his mom are amazing people Towards the end, I honestly had several differen [...]

    17. Tracy on said:

      I was looking for some fluff, something with a sense of humor This wasn t it The book blurb makes it sound like fun The cutesy cover makes it look like fun The tone of the writing make it sound like fun I found no fun.I listened to 75 minutes of the 6.5 hour CD version of the book during that time I didn t find a character that I was remotely interested in, nor did I ever crack a smile even an inward one Seriously, if you re supposed to be clever, funny, or even mildly witty, don t you think you [...]

      3.5 Stars 0 Not a laugh out loud type of funny novel for me, but this was surprisingly alot of funThere were a couple plot points that were a bit out there for me but it didn t really bother me too much Once the story started going and I got to know these characters , I fell in love A couple times I would look up from the novel and be surprised I was still sitting in the living room and not at the Geiger s Inn The pages fly by really fast but the story never suffers for it.Samantha s mother yees [...]

      Know what I hate Snobs.Know what I hate even Book snobs The ones with Anna Karenina under their arms on the streets and a quote by Oscar Wilde on their yearbook who know Shakespeare s sonnets by heart Not that there s anything wrong with any of those, but there is when a snob firmly believes there s nothing to look for in literature nowadays Or when a snob believes a genre is deemed worthy than the other.I decided to start my review this way because there are the people who do not deem contemp [...]

    21. Colleen on said:

      I m being generous with my stars I would really give this book like 2 1 2 stars I find the storyline hard to believe I don t see a high powered lawyer taking a housekeeping job One minute the character is a powerful well known lawyer, in the best law firm in the country, used to having control over others and the next she is curtseying to her new employers, cooking, cleaning and being dismissed after being given her new chores It was too much to believe Even though the author tried to make it b [...]

    22. Tatiana on said:

      I think Undomestic Goddess is my favorite of all Sophie Kinsella s books I ve read so far Although totally predictable, this book was a pleasure to read The main reason I enjoyed this book so much is probably because I can totally relate to Samantha She is a lawyer and workaholic She thinks that she will be happy after reaching the next step on the career ladder and all her hard work and sacrifices will pay off Only while working so hard towards her goal, she fails to enjoy her life A series of [...]

      Now I see what all the fuss is about over Sophie Kinsella Her books are unpredictable, frothy fun with great themes and hilarious moments thrown in the mix I really enjoyed this one, and I can t wait to read books by this lovely author.

      This is my first book by Sophie Kinsella and made me read and of her books The plot was interesting and some sort of funny The characters were good, but could have been better.

    28. Obsidian on said:

      The Undomestic Goddess was really funny I really though this was cute and the only reason I didn t give it five stars is that I wish we had seen of Samantha pushing back against her family and her so called profession up front The ending kind of faltered a bit to me, but all in all really enjoyed this book.Samantha Sweeting is on par to make partner at a law firm Though she doesn t have time to cook, clean, or have a relationship, she s finally ready to get the brass ring However, a mistake she [...]
