Publisher's Summary

Following years of unrequited love, an out-of-work schoolteacher decides to take matters into his own hands to win back his ex-girlfriend, triggering a chain of events that neither he nor his psychiatrist could have anticipated. Told in seven parts, through the viewpoints of seven different characters, Seven Types of Ambiguity is an engrossing psychological thriller and a literary masterpiece.

Overlong, repetitive and predictable

I’m sorry..I stuck this through waiting for a payoff. It never came.

Perhaps I don’t get it..but to me it was a dull listen.

The afterward explains it a little with the author revealing his political tendencies and cherry picking of faults from the other side of politics.

Well voiced, but disappointing content.

Made it through

I was excited for another thriller, but realised perhaps long form novels are not for me. By about half way I was beginning to be interested in the book, but it wasn’t particularly gripping. Once listening to it, I enjoyed the book, but I was never eager to start playing it again, and only would, because i needed something to listen to while driving.

Glad to be introduced to some of the concepts, I feel more intelligent having listened to it.

Great but not without being problematic

Loved it but found Simon's attitude to Anna unambiguously painful. Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope is dangerous, extreme and unrealistic.
