Publisher's Summary

"I had to go back to New York and try to find him. There was a chance he mightn't be there, but I had to give it a go because there was one thing I was certain of: he wasn't here."

Anna Walsh is officially a wreck. She's covered in bandages and she's lying in her parents' Good Front Room dreaming of leaving Dublin and getting back to New York. To her friends. To The Most Fabulous Job in the World. And most of all, back to her husband, Aiden.

But her family have other ideas (not to mention the usual problems that beset the Walsh sisters). And Aiden, for some reason, seems unwilling to get in touch.

What happened to Anna to send her so far from all that she loves? And what happened to her marriage that her husband won't talk to her?

Critic Reviews

"The jokes are as good as ever, Keyes' large cast of Irish and American characters fizz and crackle....High-quality entertainment" ( Marie Claire)
"The novel is a rare blend of genres, a richly enjoyable satire and an inspirational tale of one woman's triumph over despair" ( Daily Telegraph)

Absolutely loved this great read!

I love all novels by Marian Keyes. I especially love the story's about the Walsh sisters. This book is by far up there with my favourites.

Buy the unabridged version

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The actual story is excellent, this version misses a lot of important information.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed it but not as much as the actual book

Abridged.

I love this book, but this edition is abridged so that most of my favourite parts are missing. Don't bother.

Why is this book abridged?

Love Marian Keyes and have a lot of her books. For some reason this is an edited down version of the book which is just odd. Not the best narration either

Abridged

This is one of my favourite books by Marian Keyes but this abridged audiobook sucks a lot
of the joy out of the story - no Helen subplot, none of the hysterical emails between Anna and her mum. Very disappointing and it should be made clearer that it’s abridged.

A new form of chic lit

'Anybody Out There' captures all the best of chic-lit, the romance, the femininity and (mostly) the humour, but this Audible version made all of those factors hard to appreciate with the terrible American accents from Niamh Daly.

Her native Irish is stunning to listen too, and her reading contained superb emotions and reactions, but every attempt at an American accent made my skin crawl. They didn't sound human, never mind American!

All in all, Keyes is making strides in the chic-lit department with unique, interesting and complex stories, but this version was hard to listen too.
