The Undomestic Goddess. Samantha Sweeting is one of my favourite ever heroines. She’s a bright, nervy, intelligent lawyer who has no idea how to boil an egg or use her washing machine – all she cares about is work.

The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella . I'm so sorry but I just seem to dislike most of the books you upload now.Workaholic attorney Samantha Sweeting has just done the unthinkable. She’s made a mistake so huge, it’ll wreck any chance of a partnership. I no longer get excited when you upload something because I know I'm probably not going to like it. This has got nothing to do with you and everything to do with my preferences - I'm very picky.

Sophie Kinsella is at the top of the chick lit game. The Undomestic Gardner is a genuinely funny, sweet book. Her plots are fast-paced and entertaining, with the perfect amount of realistic neurosis to accompany her quirky heroines. Kinsella is a comic whiz who consistently delivers what her readers crave. A lovely romantic comedy. The Undomestic Goddess is a genuinely funny, sweet book.

The Undomestic Goddess Author: Sophie Kinsella. OK. So sometimes I do feel a bit tense. But I’m a lawyer in the City, for God’s sake. What do you expect? My handwriting is pressing so hard into the page, I’ve torn the paper.

Fantastic book! It was a little slow getting into and a little silly. But by page 100 I was laughing out loud - and I don’t do that in books! Some twists at the end, but carries a good message about life and what you want to get out of it - what makes you YOU! I’m so glad my book club recommended this book!

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I do have to say I expected the "surprise turn", but that did not ruin the story at all. I don't read many romancy type books, but I really like this one and will look up others by this author. One problem I noticed here and there were words missing from sentences; a verb here, pronouns there, articles there. You end up having to read the sentence again for it to make sense, but it wasn't often enough to ruin the story. I also don't think this is a proofreader problem. I've noticed it fairly often lately in widely different books and I get the impression that it may happen when the book is converted into an e-book. It is annoying, but the story was fun regardless.

I liked this book and was so happy to see Samantha come to her senses and end up with a great guy. The whole story is pretty funny though when you envision her messing up sandwiches and burning food. I thought there was going to be some huge debacle behind where the Geiger's got their money bc that still wasn't clear on that. They just didn't seem like the type who were refined enough to have that kind of money, lol. It was awesome that the Geiger's niece got an attitude adjustment in the end when she found out who Samantha really was - loved that! Overall a super fun read and kept my interest.....I'm considering trolling through some nearby neighborhoods looking for my Nathaniel! LOL!

It doesn’t really matter what the plot is, when Sophie writes a story it’s worth reading. This undomestic goddess is entertaining and I wish her well wherever the road leads her.

I laughed out loud at so many parts of The Undomestic Goddess that I would receive stares if I were reading in public. But I couldn't help myself! Sophie Kinsella brought her lead protagonist, Samantha Sweeting to life. Her interior monologue was utterly amusing. I was surprised to be able to identify with Samantha so easily.

Samantha Sweeting, high power attorney find herself cleaning houses despite the fact that she isn't domestic... and she's surprisingly happy about her new life. Although by about page 30 you know exactly how this book is going to end, I enjoyed reading it very much. Ms. Kinsella weaves an amusing tale with likeable characters. There were a few parts where you might have to suspend your disbelief, but it is a fun, light fiction book full of laughs so this didn't bother me. I liked the fact that although it's chick-lit and it's described as a romance, there is just enough romance to add to the story without being overbearing, sickly sweet or off topic. Well done, Ms. Kinsella!

Our book club enjoyed the antics of Samantha Sweeting, the main character. Her life in the corporate world as a contrast to the simple country life elicited much discussion regarding what's truly important. Fun read!

This sooooo reminded me of an innocent, charming 1960's Doris Day film or watching a really great episode of "Bewitched". Delightful, fluffy, funny, a bit predictable (but who cares?) and thoroughly enjoyable from the first to the last word work by Sophie Kinsella in a stand alone Brit chick lit romantic comedy.

A huge bungle at work leads a grief stricken workaholic young woman on an unexpected journey that includes mistaken identity, learning some valuable life lessons, a changing of priorities that make the high powered career life in London less desirable and a tingling romance. There are laugh out loud moments along the way. What is not to love?

Although it makes me feel guilty to say it this is Sophie's most charming book, maybe even better than the Shopaholic series. Watch out! A lightening bolt from heaven might charbroil me any second for writing THAT!

Enjoy the read!
I always read at least several of the reviews that my colleagues have posted before me, trying to get a feel for what has been said before and what is yet to be said. I try to read several reviews of people who loved it, and people who hated it. Often I am impressed with what my fellow reviewers have to say, and even build upon some of their ideas to complete my review.

Unfortunately, as I flip through these reviews, I find little guidance for my own. The people that loved it loved it for predictable reasons - the main character's gumption, the hunky leading man - and the people who hated it raised their feminist flags and stomped around. What sort of woman would quit her high powered job to become a maid? What type of woman would have never ironed a shirt or cooked a meal? This is completely unrealistic!!!

It's not that far of a stretch. There are many woman that feel pressured to follow in the footsteps of their parents, even if that means following them into a career that they don't enjoy at all. If Samantha's mother was as high-powered as she is presenting, do you really think that she would take the time to teach Samantha how to iron or cook? Do you think that she really even does those things for herself? I didn't think so.

And burnout is absolutely a great reason to quit a job, and an incredibly strong motivator in our world. I know a ton of people who have thought about and actually quit their jobs for that reason.

Overall, this is a book that is a ton of fun. Are you going to have important life discoveries and be profoundly moved? Probably not. Not every book has to be a classic! Just enjoy it for what it is, not what it's not.
