    When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.

    Everything!! It was such a lovely heart warming story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course it was the fantastic Bob

    He was lovely to listen and really bought the story to life

    I am a total cat lover and adore stories about them. I had seen James and Bob on YouTube and just loved the story. I can't wait to read the next book James has written about Bob. Big kudos to James for turning his life around with the love and support of a lovely ginger kitty :)

    This was a great book. It was wonderful to listen a Marian Keyes book again, it has been ages. The narration was excellent, I have listened to her a few times now and always enjoy her.
    The story had me hooked from the beginning and I enjoyed every minute of it.

    "I'll tell you something, something important. Love is a decision. Not a feeling. That's what you young people don't realise. That's why you're always off divorcing each other. No offence, dear." So decrees the formidable Connie Thrum of Scribbly Gum Island. She is the chief decision-maker of a rather unconventional family and her word is law. It's been over seventy years since Connie and her sister Rose visited their neighbours and found the kettle boiling and a baby waking for her feed, but no sign of her parents.

    Douglas Petersen may be mild-mannered, but behind his reserve lies a sense of humor that seduces beautiful Connie into a second date...and eventually into marriage. Now, almost three decades later, they live more or less happily in the London suburbs with their moody seventeen year-old son, Albie. Then Connie tells him she thinks she wants a divorce. The timing couldn’t be worse. Connie has planned a month-long tour of European capitals, a chance to experience the world’s greatest works of art as a family, and she can’t bring herself to cancel. And maybe going ahead is for the best anyway? Douglas is privately convinced that this landmark trip will rekindle the romance in the marriage, and might even help him to bond with Albie. Narrated from Douglas’s endearingly honest, slyly witty, and at times achingly optimistic point of view, Us is the story of a man trying to rescue his relationship with the woman he loves, and learning how to get closer to a son who’s always felt like a stranger.

    Jude and her brother, Noah, are incredibly close twins. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude surfs and cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and divisive ways…until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as an unpredictable new mentor.

    Zoe has an unconventional pen pal - Mr. Stuart Harris, a Texas Death Row inmate and convicted murderer. But then again, Zoe has an unconventional story to tell. A story about how she fell for two brothers, betrayed one of them, and killed the other. Hidden away in her backyard shed in the middle of the night with a jam sandwich in one hand and a pen in the other, Zoe gives a voice to her heart and her fears after months of silence. Mr. Harris may never respond to Zoe's letters, but at least somebody will know her story...

    What did you like best about this story?

    She is my favorite narator and I quite often search for books she narrates. She is so lovely to listen to and she does the mens voices really well


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had a few laughs and I almost cried in parts. I felt on edge and just wanted to know what happened in the end.

    I got this book because I had just finished 'my sister liveson the mantelpiece', that was fabulos and so was this one! I will defiantly keep an eye out for this authors next book, her writing is wonderful and she had me hooked from the first chapter to the last.
