Marian Keyes is a great writer and has some wonderful turns of phrase with a lot of laugh out loud witty lines. She is however, also the queen of creating extremely unlikeable and annoying characters who are very difficult to feel anything for except repulsion and anger. The lead character in this book especially makes you just want to smack her in the head as she is so pathetically stupid and pitiful.

This was the wrong narrator for this story. The voice did not match the main character as it did not conjure up the right image of her. Was hard to picture her as attractive and not just as a slapper

Well written but Very depressing book with an unsatisfying ending. Worst Australian accent ever! Non Australians should never attempt our accent. No one seems to get it right and it’s very insulting

Worst try hard Australian accent ever! Embarrassingly so And the rest of the time speaking in a baby voice for the female characters. Very off putting performance

Beautifully written and beautifully read. The character voices are totally appropriate and convincing with emotion and feeling perfectly applied enabling you to get completely lost in the story. I fully recommend this audiobook.

I couldn’t really say how good the story is because I can’t even make it through the first chapter and will be returning the book. The narrator is terrible and besides just sounding all wrong, the loud intake of breath before every sentence is so distracting and annoying that I couldn’t even focus on the story.
