I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would after reading the description. I'm sure I'll listen to it again, and that's much more than I can say for a few titles in my library. The narrator has an anxious air about her voice at first which was very annoying, but either I got used to it, or she settled down after awhile. I'm sure it was meant to add a sense of urgency to the text, but it came across as a little whiny. Don't listen to this book if you have an aversion to the F word. I'm sure that if it were in print the F word would be on every second or third page. The story itself was very enjoyable, as all the Marian Keyes books I've read have been. I gave this four stars - I listened to it in almost every possible moment and finished in 3 days. It wasn't suspenseful, but I found the characters easy to relate to, and difficult to turn away from. I didn't give it five stars because of the whininess at the beginning and the over-use of the same expletive.
