I loved this Sophie Kinsella novel

Narrator was clear and the story interesting with a moral attached. I almost didn’t get it due to other reviews but was pleasantly surprised

Fun (maybe), but awful

For a story that now and then shoehorns the word "feminism" into the plot and tries so hard to be all about the empowering journey of self-discovery of a strong female character, this is actually the LEAST feminist book I've read (well, listened to) in a while.

Here's the thing: it's not enough to take a classically cliché formula and paint it "feminist". For it to actually BE feminist, you have to redesign the roots of the formula. Surprise Me is entirely about Sylvie being oblivious to the Amazing, Wonderful, Heroic husband she has, and then finding out just how much she should've appreciated him from the start, because he was right all along!

All of Kinsella's leading couples fall into the same tone to be honest - airhead woman x down to earth man - but this was the first one that made me cringe and feel anything BUT feminist. Zero chemistry between Dan and Sylvie, by the way, so I couldn't even go "eh at least it's a nice love story". Overall, I think maybe Sophie does a better job at spreading a feminist message when she's not actively trying to address gender issues. Becky Bloom, with her fucking SHOPPING addiction, is still so much more feminist than Sylvie. God, I'm just very disappointed.

l liked it but it seemed to never reach the climax

good story and enjoyable and even made me bring up a fun conversation with my husband about the concept of 65 more years of marriage but i felt the story went in a different and less exciting path than it could have

Not the norm

Was not the usual Kinsella light hearted rom com, much more serious. I missed the romance and comedy for the dating of her previous books.

Disappointed

Was really looking forward to listening to this book. But it was drab. Whilst there’s a story, a twist, it was boring. As for the word incredulous, it was so over used. There were funny bits but few and far between sadly.
