Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Foursome by Jane Fallon, read by Tracy-Ann Oberman.

Rebecca, Daniel, Alex and Isabel have been best friends since university. Rebecca married Daniel, Alex married Isabel and, for 20 years, they have been inseparable. But all that is about to change....  

When Alex walks out on Isabel, Rebecca thinks things can't get any worse. But then she finds out the reason why and she's left harbouring a secret she'd rather forget....

And there's more upheaval to come in Rebecca's life as her emaciated, neurotic, self-obsessed colleague, Lorna - her arch nemesis at work - suddenly becomes a regular feature in her social life. 

Rebecca's once-happy foursome is now a distant memory and with hearts broken and friendships fractured, it seems that change is never a good thing. Or is it?

Great iso read

So easy to listen to, narrator isn't annoying, and does great in defining from different characters. Storyline isn't complicated, a few funny moments. I've listened to a few of Jane Fallons books, and if you like her other books, you'll like this one

Drivel

This is basically a story about a very spoilt, immature and over-indulged woman who doesn’t get on with one of her colleagues. The end.

Foursome!

Narration - awful! Read most of JF’s books now and enjoyed them but the narration on this book ruins it, just awful! Shame.

Not Jane Fallon's best work

I don't feel this book had an awful lot of substance to it. Not a lot really happened. I would have liked a few plot twists and drama. It was good but usually with Jane Fallon books I'm constantly finding excuses during the day to get back to listening to them. I really enjoy the author's writing style but this isn't the best example of her work. The narrator was good and added a good touch of realism while she was reading, as if she was having a conversation instead of just reading from a book.

Funny

I’m part of a book club and this was the book of choice and I’ve found it so funny, uplifting and all round my kind of book. Tracy-Ann reading is brilliant, the voices are so good they just add to the narration.

Enjoyable book, however

Good storyline, however the narrator's accents were terrible especially the Australia (I think it was meant to be).

Easy listen

Easy to listen to. No real meat to the story and I didn’t like the twee ending. I like Jane Fallons books but this one did lack a bit of substance. That said I did enjoy listening to it and would buy her books again.
