AudioBook Review:: The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella

Title: The Undomestic Goddess
Author: Sophie Kinsella
Publisher: Clipper Audio
Length: 12:75 hrs
Narrator: Phoebe James

Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. She’s made a mistake so huge, it’ll wreck any chance of a partnership. 

Going into utter meltdown, she walks out of her London office, gets on a train, and ends up in the middle of nowhere. Asking for directions at a big, beautiful house, she’s mistaken for an interviewee and finds herself being offered a job as housekeeper. Her employers have no idea they’ve hired a lawyer–and Samantha has no idea how to work the oven. She can’t sew on a button, bake a potato, or get the #@%# ironing board to open. How she takes a deep breath and begins to cope–and finds love–is a story as delicious as the bread she learns to bake. 

But will her old life ever catch up with her? And if it does…will she want it back?

Audio Review::
I've read the book several times. But, when I saw that my library had the audio I just couldn't resist. I love this book so hard. It is just hilarious!! Samantha's inner dialogue is so relate-able! I know I've had those same conversations/thoughts with myself. Narrator Phoebe James is genius. She does so many different voices that made me feel like I was watching the film. 

Sophie Kinsella always writes career women. I love it. It sets a fun backdrop to the story. Samantha is a high powered lawyer that screwed up. Big time. Then she runs away. Don't we all wish we could do that?! When she starts being the housekeeper I couldn't stop laughing! There are just so many funny situations. 

This book is just awesome and I'm so glad I grabbed the audio even though I already knew the story. It added another dimension. Plus, I could always listen to an English accent. It's so sophisticated


  1. I keep meaning to try this one on audio. Glad you liked it!

  2. I never thought of listening to books I've already read on audio. That's a great idea! This one does sound fun and I've never read anything by Kinsella, and I really must. Thanks for the great review :)

  3. I love Sophie Kinsella! She's one of my favorite authors, and I truly do think her heroines are always entertaining and lovable.


I love to hear what you think.
