A Perfect Divorce | [Francesca Clementis]

A Perfect Divorce

Jenny and Mark have been together since they were at school. Now they are getting a divorce - largely, it would appear, because it is easier than answering difficult questions. (For example, why has it taken them 15 years to get married?) Only Jenny and Mark are determined that their carefully planned separation will lead to the world's first truly amicable divorce. But Jenny and Mark's friends and family are not so happy about their plans for a 'perfect divorce'. They find their loyalties divided.

Publisher's Summary

Jenny and Mark have been together since they were at school. Now they are getting a divorce - largely, it would appear, because it is easier than answering difficult questions. (For example, why has it taken them 15 years to get married?) Only Jenny and Mark are determined that their carefully planned separation will lead to the world's first truly amicable divorce. The house will be sold, the profits divided, leaving each enough to place a deposit on a new flat. They'll divide up their possessions without any argument; each eager to show that he/she was the most reasonable party. They'll still socialize with all their friends. They'd even go out occasionally, just as good friends do.

But Jenny and Mark's friends and family are not so happy about their plans for a 'perfect divorce'. They find their loyalties divided, and something as simple as dinner plans are now complicated and messy. People say that divorce can be painless if there are no children involved. But at least children grow up, get over it and get on with their own lives. Some friends never do.

    "Absolutely hilarious."

    I'm an American but I love British wit and this book is full of it. The author has written very well and the narrator does a very good job expressing the characters.

    The idea that one person can cause shakeups in all of her relationships by either disclosing or not disclosing certain information is really believable and unbelievable at the same time.

    This was a very enjoyable listen.

    "Hilarious"

    I got this book on a whim but now it's one of my favorites. The authors sense of humor is wonderful. Women 35 plus probably would enjoy it the most in my opinion. The narrator Rachel Atkins was a perfect choice, she brought life to the characters and used her voice to make the context of laughable words even funnier.
