Clare Lydon at her best

This book had me from me the start, it made me laugh and cry as the story touched on a similar home life. It was awesome how Lydon brought Jess/Lucy into this story as well as Kate/Meg. I was glad that see that she wrote Tanya’s story and boy was it spot on

Best of the series!!!

While i liked the entire series, this one was my favorite!! I absolutely adored the narrator, i could listen to her all day. I especially liked the characters and their depth. They were pretty well fleshed out and were just quirky and funny themselves. I liked their dynamic with each other as well. Overall, i thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to more of this author.

We all come with emotional baggage...

What made the experience of listening to A Girl Called London the most enjoyable?

I particularly enjoyed the narrator for this book. She suited the story well and was easy to listen to. I appreciated the author's attention to the ways that barriers to emotional connection in intimate relationships often originate with our family relationships.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Girl Called London?

I will never forget the description of Tanya slamming into Sophie in the elevator the first time. It was a crash you could see coming from a mile away and author painted it in great detail.

What about Lucy Price-Lewis’s performance did you like?

Her accent suited a story set in London (at least for this American) and she was very easy to listen to. She did not try to overly dramatize the story which I was grateful for.

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

I actually listened to it in one sitting. However, for me there was too much repetition as well as too many details about tertiary characters. I found that it detracted from the heart of the story which I felt was a good one.

Great Characters, Lovely Romance

Clare Lydon is one of my favorite authors because she writes great characters and her sense of humor is off the chart. Nobody writes snappy dialogue or situational comedy better than she does.
In this audiobook, the pacing of the plot and the narrator's ability to nail the comic timing makes this audiobook even better than the actual book.
Both the main characters are very relatable and Ms. Lydon provides plenty of backstory to make both women realistic and sympathetic.
Sometimes it was hard for me to distinguish which character was speaking. I didn't feel like the narrator was consistent with her voice interpretations. This could be because I am American so my ear may miss some of the nuances of the regional British language. That being said, I thought the narrator's voice was pleasant and the production quality was very good.

Five stars all round

The main character this time around is Tanya, someone who I greatly disliked in the previous story. We learn a lot more about why she behaves as she does. She starts off as rude as ever but circumstances help to soften her edges and when she bumps into Sophie (literally and with amazing regularity), she becomes someone you can warm to. She still slips up but not as much. This story doesn't have quite as much comedy as the previous two, it's sad in places but it shows there is happiness to be had if we just allow people to help. Lucy Price-lewis is an excellent choice for narrator and has a very relaxing voice which I found suited the story. I found it easy to understand which character was speaking throughout.

Loved it

I loved this book, the romance is very fun and sweet. I really liked London's (the city) description and how English the chacters were. I thought Lucy Price-Lewis did a great job with the narration. I liked how much Tanya's changed from the previous book.
