Publisher's Summary

A thoughtful, captivating and ultimately uplifting novel from this uniquely talented author. Jasmine loves two things: her sister and her work. And when her work is taken away she has no idea who she is. Matt loves two things: his family and the booze. Without them, he hits rock bottom. One New Year's Eve, two people's paths collide. Both have time on their hands; both are at a crossroads. But as the year unfolds, through moonlit nights and suburban days, an unlikely friendship slowly starts to blossom. Sometimes you have to stop still in order to move on. Original and poignant, The Year I Met You will make you laugh, cry and celebrate life.

    "Cecelia Ahern does it again"

    I've loved all of Cecelia Ahern's books for their quirky, feel-good story lines and her latest offering does not disappoint. Listening to the book as I drove to and from work each day, my 50 minute commute disappeared in an instant as I was drawn into the very satisfying story and great narration.

    "A different kind of relationship story"
    What made the experience of listening to The Year I Met You the most enjoyable?

    It was surprising. There were turns to the story I didn't expect and that kept me returning to the book as often as I could! I didn't foresee the way it would go from the title.

    I also really enjoyed the narrator's Irish lilt


    Have you listened to any of Remie Purtill-Clarke’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't heard Remie read before but would look out for her narration in other books.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a love story but a "good friend" story between a man and a woman whose relationship changes and improves over one year.

    Story
    "An enjoyable listen"
    Where does The Year I Met You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I did really enjoy this audio book, it was great to listen to during commutes, however I did find it a little slow in places and occasionally I found that difficult to follow on short journeys. So although I did really enjoy the story once I got into it, I wouldn't say it has been my favourite to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Year I Met You?

    I would say highlighting Down Syndrome, it has been the first audio book I have listened to, to promote disability in the way this book did.


    What does Remie Purtill-Clarke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I loved how the characters were bought to life. The accents are great in the story and the characters were easy to distinguish.


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

    I thought it was heartwarming.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to thank Audible for sending this in exchange for an honest review.

    "Unfortunately not my sort of book."

    I found the main character very negative about everything and the story in my opinion wasn't engaging.

    Story
    "Charming, joyous read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend because the characters are well observed and it's easy to get lost in the story as its so absorbing and well written.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed that the family structure was a bit unconventional and the way the book explores disability and promotes equality and diversity (the main characters sister heather has Down's Syndrome and the book looks at heathers relationships as well as jasmines). For this reason I found the book to be more interesting than the conventional love story and found that there were two love stories in the book not just one, I also liked that there are two potential love interests for jasmine and you're not sure till the end who she will choose. Another reason I loved this book. It wasn't too sickly sweet either there were quite intense parts to it as well which gives the book more depth.


    What does Remie Purtill-Clarke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Character, her narration was great I enjoyed it and her accent was lovely to listen to.


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

    Funny how a year changes everything


    Any additional comments?

    It had its charm but I found it very slow. It missed her usual spark. I felt it rushed the end and left unanswered questions.
