Publisher's Summary

What if you almost missed the love of your life?

Nadia gets the 7.30 train every morning without fail. Well, except if she oversleeps or wakes up at her friend Emma’s after too much wine.

Daniel really does get the 7.30 train every morning, which is easy because he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since his dad died.

One morning, Nadia’s eye catches sight of a post in the daily paper:

To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I’m the guy who’s always standing near the doors.... Drink sometime?

So begins a not-quite-romance of near misses, true love and the power of the written word.

Includes a bonus Q&A between Laura Jane Williams and Carrie Hope Fletcher.

A wonderfully funny will-they-won’t-they romance, told with real emotional honesty, perfect for those who loved Dolly Alderton’s Everything I Know About Love, as well as fans of Lucy Vine, Holly Bourne, Mhairi McFarlane, and Beth O’Leary.

A bit contrived but some are entertaining

It took 6 hours into the book to finally meet, too contrived and forced, however, some parts of the book are funny and entertaining. Sped up the listening by using 1.25 speed and finally got to the end. If it was a shorter book and the story line was more compact would have been much more enjoyable.

Delightful, funny and feminist.

This book is a delight and a wonderful roller coaster of missed chances and fate. Fantastically performed by the two narrators and expertly crafted by Laura Jane Williams. Loved it!!

Really Quite Cheesy

I thought this would be warm and enjoyable...a bit like The Flat Share. However I found the story … cheesy. It was unexciting, frustrating at parts (spoiler: the couple genuinely do not meet until the very end) and I found that there were a lot of plot points that were glossed over, rather than being correctly digested. The fact that the main character has her friends completely isolate her and does not feel in the least annoyed? Or the fact that none of them feel the need to communicate this? It just rings a little false and made me believe in this story even less.
The male protagonist does not once have a fault pointed out. If anything, he is 'too sensitive' which I hardly think is considered a fault in 2019. He was very 'perfect' which in honesty was a bit of an eye roll.

I just found this novel to be 'another chick lit that you pick up at the airport and throw away at the other end'. It's not BAD, but I likely will never think of it again after this. It's not deeply meaningful, nor is it poignant in relatable way. It's just...fluffy. Lacking substance, perhaps. Even the epilogue (sue me for saying so, but it's the worst part of the whole novel...should have been left out) which trawls on and on about the main characters and their deep concern for humanity (because being good looking, witty, successful and popular is not enough) seemed completely shallow. It just wasn't believable. It was 'too perfect'. I felt that it was tacked on the end of a shallow story (nothing wrong with a shallow story, just don't expect a Pulitzer) in an attempt to remind the reader (again) of how wonderful and 'realistic' these characters are.

All in all; if you're looking for a quick and easy read while you're trying to ignore crying babies and a snoring passenger behind you while you embark on an eight hour flight, this is fine. Not the best; but it'll do. You won't die of boredom.

Could Not Stop Listening

This was such a good book. It was refreshing, inspiring and had the right amounts of burst out loud laughing funny moments, which can be embarrassing in a very quiet office of 30.

Utterly boring and frustrating

I got half way through this book, it will be four hours I’ll never get back. Frustrating to listen to. Really cheesy and predictable. Would not recommend.

Written for adolescents?

I think even adolescents would struggle with what can only be described as a trashy, cheesy, predictable little story. I cannot call it a novel. Amazingly I got to the end...but there was no reward..it was to only hear more about penises, pubic hairs and periods..really? really?

Fun

I liked it a lot, light and different, characters just like a girl wants in her life particularly after ‘awful Ben’ - a relationship with a narcissist.

Prepare yourself for the biggest smile

Our Stop is a beautiful written heartwarming read. A will they / won’t they romance with the perfect blend of love, humour, heartbreak with girl/boy next door type characters at the core and a supporting brilliant supporting cast.

Boring!

Good idea for a book but this was so drawn out end the ending was obvious that after about chapter 30, I got bored and skipped about 15 chapters. Still got the same result and didn't miss much in between- sorry Laura Jane Williams.

an absolute must read!

If anyone needs a new read, #OurStop is where it's at. I listened to it all in 4 days and didn't want it to end. It challenges toxic masculinity while being romantic, adorable and about the law of attraction! It made me smile so much and I'm obsessed 💛💖

Simple plot too long to reach conclusion

Not feeling this one at all. Found it good for sending me to sleep out of frustration at the story.

What an uplifting story!

Listened on a road trip to see family, some of the chapters were a bit explicit to listen to with my mother, but what a brilliantly uplifting story. Characters which are realistic, funny and likeable. Quotes and stories which are relatable and humorous, will definitely be listening again! Possibly my new favourite book, and I don’t say that lightly!

Has you on edge waiting for them to finally meet!

Although at times I was pissed off that the characters didn’t meet all the other previous times - I still loved it and it kept me hooked waiting for that moment!
