Emily Gray reads Kinsella's funny, charming novel about neurotic average-working-girl Emma Corrigan. Gray truly becomes the hysterical, self-conscious young woman as she spills her life's secrets to a total stranger on a bumpy plane ride, only to discover later that he owns the company she works for. Gray portrays each detail of Emma's humiliation, spirit, and drive in a believable and entertaining manner. Her depiction of love interest Jack Harper falls just a bit flat in comparison but still matches equally well Kinsella's character development. A hilarious story, decent abridgment, and superb reading make this novel a must-listen. H.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
