Audiobook reviews: The need for visuals...

Sometimes you just need pictures to go with the words.

Lauren Weisberger, who wrote The Devil Wears Prada, has written a new book perfect for summer reading: Chasing Harry Winston, the sex-and-great-cocktails  story of three girlfriends in New York.

Listening to Charlotte Parry on the audiobook made me long for the movie version. I wanted to see the apartments, the clothes and the restaurants. I guess I wanted Sex and the City or Friends or both. Something - anything -to distract from the silly girl talk.

Twentysomething female angst doesn't much appeal to me. I am soooo over that. But I gave this one a chance cause it is on the top of all sorts of beach read lists.

And while we are being snarky ... Parry mispronounces the name of the famous National Football League coach who is now GM of the Miami Dolphins. Bill Parcells' last name is not pronounced like something UPS leaves at your door.
