Publisher's Summary

The main action takes place in rural Kent and London. It looks at the dramatic incidents, challenges, and temptations in the past and present lives of four couples of varying ages, professions, and sexual persuasions, all linked by either blood or friendship. The negative, selfish, sometimes violent, natures of some of the characters in Potholes and Magic Carpets wreak havoc on the innocent. A tale of not so simple folk.

Interesting premise

Set place in England revolving around couples

It’s humor of the dark sort. This genre of book is not usually my cup of tea but I thought it was good and look forward to more from the author

Potholes and Magic Carpets

4.5 stars.

I really enjoyed the narration by Tracey Norman. She does and excellent job and her voice seemed perfect for this book.

As to the story itself, I found it compelling and it was hard to stop listening. There are quite a few characters to keep track of. Their lives start in different areas and are interwoven dramatically throughout the book.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A Very Complex and Compelling Story

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I was expecting something completely different judging from the title of the book, but fell in love immediately with the author's writing style and the narrative that evolved around four couples dealing with real life problems and successes.
It takes a little time to discover how the lives of these four couples intertwine and influence each other, but once you understand the mechanics, you'll be better able to understand how their personal dramas and achievements have been the results of upbringing and personal situations.
There are characters that you want to hate because they are in fact hateful, and others that you would like to hold and help get out of horrible relationships that could never be saved. The narration is also very commendable. All in all, a must read book.
