    Story
    "Typical chick lit!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really,I bought this on reviews alone-It started off ok but wasn't long before I realised it was nothing more than a book about three lovesick ,woe is me women.Constantly complaining about their sorry lives.I still have another five hours to go at this stage-but have gone past the point of no return,so determined to finish it...woe is me,my head is going to explode before the last page....One for the girls only I think-the girls who like romantic hopeless chick stories.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    None


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing-the narrator was actually first class.


    Could you see One Night in Italy being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    Would probably make a romantic comedy or drama-but I would not go see it.


    Any additional comments?

    Time to go find a good thriller I think!

    Story
    "Far to many main characters."
    What disappointed you about One Night in Italy?

    To many stories vying for the tops spot, it was like five short stories made into one book, I had no idea who the lead character was as they had no real strengths.


    Has One Night in Italy put you off other books in this genre?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Geraldine Sharrock’s performance?

    Nice to hear a Yorkshire accent


    What character would you cut from One Night in Italy?

    the long lost dad, either have him in the story line properly or not at all

    Story
    "Very disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better reading.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader really should have taken the trouble to find out how to pronounce the Italian words in the book. There really aren't that many. One of the reasons I chose this book is because I'm an Italophile so it's wince-inducing when I hear 'Natale' (Christmas) pronounced 'NAT-al-e' instead of 'Nat-AL-e' or 'una amica' pronounced 'una AM-ic-a' instead of 'un'am-I-ca'.

    Also, I realise accents vary and they're all valid, but personally I find it hard to listen to someone who pronounces 'ing' words with a hard 'g'. That's just my own personal preference, of course.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from One Night in Italy?

    It's a bit of a mess, plot-wise, with far too many apparently equal plot lines. I'd have cut one of them altogether, I think, and brought the missing father more to the forefront. The missing father is one of the reasons I bought this book!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm only half way through this, to be fair. Not sure if I'll finish it unless it picks up soon. It's the only book so far which I've bought through Audible that has me wondering about the returns policy.
