The day her children leave home, Eva climbs into bed and stays there. She's had enough - of her kids' carelessness, her husband's thoughtlessness and of the world's general indifference. Brian can't believe his wife is doing this. Who is going to make dinner? But Eva won't budge; and soon she realises to her horror that everyone has been taking her for granted - including herself.

If you could sum up The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining, thought provoking and interesting.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was the only downfall for me - it just seemed to fade out without a concrete ending.

What about Caroline Quentin’s performance did you like?

She has a great voice for audio books and a nice subtle variation of voice for the different characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Eva first went to bed. (Half her luck i was thinking!)
