    "Enjoyable listen"
    If you could sum up Thursdays in the Park in three words, what would they be?

    What could happen if marriage partners don't really listen to each other and hear what the other one is saying.

    Story
    "An excellent escapist listen"

    I loved this novel and for a couple of days the lives of the characters completely took over my life. If you enjoy the novels of Joanna Trollope and Penny Vincenzi then this is definitely worth a listen. It's obviously not a literary novel but it certainly rises above standard chick lit and Hilary Boyd writes a very convincing family story.

    Story
    "Absolutely loved it!"
    What did you like most about Thursdays in the Park?

    The characters were well drawn and the story zipped along at a great pace. It was a joy to listen to, due to both the quality of the story and to the quality of the narration. In fact, it was some of the best narration I have heard. The reader had impressive ability to adopt age appropriate voices and just the trace of a South African accent for a character who originated from there, but had lived in Britain many years.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that the main characters were in their 50s and 60s rather than the usual 30-somethings. It was also spot-on regarding the issues of anyone divorcing after a long marriage and finding love again.


    Have you listened to any of Joanna David’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Haven't heard other performances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I managed to listen to it over just 24-hours as I couldn't put it down (the first audio book that has had that effect on me).
