Audible has created a few short pilot episodes of various serials and offered them up as free downloads. People are needed to vote for the best one and that one will continue to be produced.
Carol has been living in New York for the past five years. She has just moved back to England and her old friends have set up a get together at a local Wine Bar.
This meeting devolves into a
“bitch-fest”. There were a couple mildly funny parts, but I actually found this audiobook more annoying than entertaining.
This “serial pilot” warns listeners at the beginning that they should “buckle up” because they are entering “the United States of Hilarity”. This is flat out untrue. This was not funny in the least.
The only redeeming feature is that the full cast of narrators are all very talented. They do a very good job with poor material.
I cannot rate this audiobook any higher than 2 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐
