Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of How to Be Good by Nick Hornby, read by Claire Higgins.

According to her own complex moral calculations, Katie Carr has earned her affair. She's a doctor, after all, and doctors are decent people, and on top of that, her husband David is the self-styled Angriest Man in Holloway.

But when David suddenly becomes good - properly, maddeningly, give-away-all-his-money good - Katie's sums no longer add up, and she is forced to ask herself some very hard questions.

Nick Hornby's brilliant new novel, a Number One best seller in the UK and Ireland, offers a painfully funny account of modern marriage and parenthood, and asks that most difficult of questions: what does it mean to be good?

Not my favourite Nick Hornby

Listened to this straight after Juliet Naked and a little disappointed. It was okaaaaaay. Though at one point near the beginning I thought I might throw my phone at the wall of I heard the phrase "Good Person" again.

Charming

Engaging and relatable to the last. Nick Hornby has an enviable ease and warmth. Fabulous stuff.
