Description

From the New York Times best-selling author of I Don't Know How She Does It comes an audiobook about starting over and facing life with a sense of humor. 

This program is read by acclaimed actor Poppy Miller, who stars as Ginny Weasley in the Broadway production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Allison Pearson's brilliant debut novel, I Don't Know How She Does It, was a New York Times best seller with four million copies sold around the world. Called "the definitive social comedy of working motherhood" (The Washington Post) and "a hysterical look - in both the laughing and crying senses of the world - at the life of Supermom" (The New York Times), I Don't Know How She Does It introduced Kate Reddy, a woman as sharp as she was funny. As Oprah Winfrey put it, Kate's story became "the national anthem for working mothers."

Seven years later, Kate Reddy is facing her 50th birthday. Her children have turned into impossible teenagers; her mother and in-laws are in precarious health; and her husband is having a midlife crisis that leaves her desperate to restart her career after years away from the workplace. Once again, Kate is scrambling to keep all the balls in the air in a juggling act that an early review from the UK Express hailed as "sparkling, funny, and poignant...a triumphant return for Pearson."

Will Kate reclaim her rightful place at the very hedge fund she founded, or will she strangle in her new “shaping” underwear? Will she rekindle an old flame, or will her house burn to the ground when a rowdy mob shows up for her daughter’s surprise (to her parents) Christmas party? Surely it will all work out in the end. After all, how hard can it be?

Ce que les critiques disent

"Few sequels beat the original, but How Hard Can It Be? does so hands down. Kate Reddy's comeback as a pushing-50 'Returner', re-entering the workforce after a spell on the mommy track, is zesty, razor-sharp, and hilarious.... Get ready for Kate!" (Tina Brown)

"Written with Allison’s trademark wit and lacerating insight, How Hard Can It Be? is an honest, hilarious look at being a woman of a certain age. Anyone who, like me, adored Kate Reddy in I Don’t Know How She Does It, will be delighted to revisit her fierce and honest take on the figurative and literal bumpy bits of middle age. This book is smart and sharp and funny, funny, funny." (Aline Brosh McKenna, screenwriter of The Devil Wears Prada and co-creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend)

Easy vacation read

If you saw the movie or read the first book of this series, then you'll enjoy the second book just as much! The story was good, it was funny, witty and interesting, kept you wondering whats next and the hours just flew by as I listened. I ended up finishing this book quite quickly and really enjoyed it. Highly recommend, esp if you really are around late 30s and early 40s age, it will probably hit home and make you have a good laugh :). #Audible1

Sooooo depressing

I preface this by saying I didn’t finish it because as a woman who’s age begins with a 4 it made me want to open a vein. The message here seems to be , life for you is over, suck it up until you die.

Give me a break

I have two daughters the age of "Kate" and menopause has not been such a mess. They have not totally turned their children into demanding spoiled brats And whats with the idiot husband. More importantly the addled mother at ALMOST 75 is the biggest insult. At 76 I work out an hour a day run my own business wear very stylish clothing and heels daily GET A GRIP

Not a Bad Book but Not For Me

This will be the first audiobook I don't finish. Not because it's poorly written or a bad story but because I'm the wrong audience. It's about a pre-menopausal woman dealing with difficult teenagers struggling with her finances and in a low point in her marriage; consequently she is facing some serious self-esteem problems due to all of the above.

I'm Not In That season of my life yet so I just can't relate. Her parenting style is completely different from mine so again I can't relate. Basically this is not a bad book, I'm just the wrong audience.

My life

Good book if you are looking to review your 50 year old life.. I like Allison Pearson's style of writing normally, it reads true to life., I had to chuckle many times during the story.. "Been there, done that" ...But I will say it had some drag "enough already" times. Overall, pleasant book but nothing to write home about.

Solid story

Not exactly what I was expecting (thought there would be a lot more cheeky humor). But once I got past that I was able to enjoy and appreciate the work for what it was - a well-written novel. Worth the credit!

Could hardly understand person reading

The accent of the person reading makes it hard to understand what’s being read! I’ll just read my hard copy.
