    "GET TO THE POINT FOR PITY'S SAKE!!!!"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    maybe a middle class housewife?


    What was most disappointing about Adele Parks’s story?

    I love details and character development but oh my! this writer goes on and on with irrelavant detail,i googled this author and cannot believe this is one of the bestselling 'chick lit' authors in the uk, i mean is this what women want? is it? just rambling about everyone their thoughts their present their past on every page....... a conversation will start and will be interjected with a long monolgue about the person why is this necessary i dont get it!
    I wouldnt mind some but its just getting on my nerves now this story could have been told in so much less time.


    How could the performance have been better?

    the performance wasnt the problem


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from About Last Night?

    oh my! too much to count


    Any additional comments?

    unless you like froth ,a snails pace story,annoying characters'an author obviously trying to just fill pages AVOID.

    "Thoroughly enjoyable"

    This book was excellent. Adele Parks is one of my favourite authors and I was not disappointed with this book. The characters are all fully developed with lots of detailed back story which only makes them all the more credible and three dimensional. The only thing I would say is that if you prefer a story where the tale grabs you excitedly from the outset then you may find it a little challenging because the main thrust of the story is not until a good halfway through. I did not find this a problem as I like well defined characters and of course I love Parks' prose and vivid descriptions. The narrator's voice took a little while to get used to but once I'd increased the pace to x 1.5 it was even more enjoyable. Well worth it!

    "About last night"

    A nice book. Gentle and easy to get into. If you are looking for something that ticks alone - this is it. Nicely read to you.

    "Suburban drama"
    What made the experience of listening to About Last Night the most enjoyable?

    The reader was competent, characters were easy to differentiate by voice. The characters are defined well and the plot was easy to follow.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kirsten - what a manipulative tart, but actually sad in her own way. What chance did a middle aged man stand. Having said she was my favourite character, I could happily give her a slap.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The start of the story, explains the friendship between the two main characters.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I wouldn't make a film of this book.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a bit frustrating in parts. No friend would grass up a mate so easily.
