Publisher's Summary

From My Legendary Girlfriend to Turning Forty, Mike Gayle's bestselling novels have taken his millions of fans through many key times for the modern man - friendship, courtship, stag weekends, marriage, work, holidays, significant birthdays - but Seeing Other People is perhaps his most compelling, engaging and bittersweet novel yet.

Father of two Joe Clarke is about seventy-eight per cent sure he's just had an affair. After all that is the hopelessly attractive office intern in bed next to him, isn't it? But then again if he did have an affair why can't he remember anything at all about the night in question?

Mortified by his mistake Joe vows to be a better man, but when his adored wife Penny puts two and two together and leaves him, things start to take a turn for the decidedly strange. Joe is told for a fact that he didn't have an affair after all. He just thinks he did. Which is great news...or at least it would be if the person who'd just delivered it wasn't the crisp eating, overly perfumed and mean-spirited ghost of his least favourite ex-girlfriend.

Seeing Other People is a hilarious and bittersweet audiobook about love, parenthood and fidelity and how easy it is to get lost on the way to your own happy ending.

What a great story and narrator!!!

You will love it. The characters are brought to life by one of the best narrators I've ever listened to.

I was late for work many times!!!

Just awful

If your online user name is 'mumofxxxx' you'll probably like this but I thought it was a pile of cliché-ridden disappointment. Self-obsessed parents with their spoilt brats - vomit-inducing drivel. I wanted something light and easy to listen to, but this was not for me.

Slow starter

Interesting but a slow starter, I liked the ending sometimes a bit of a drag

Want To Slap Him Round The Face With A Wet Fish

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really. It was way too sentimental and yeuky for me. I only got it because it was on offer.

What will your next listen be?

Something entirely different.

What three words best describe David Morley Hale’s performance?

Bit Julian Clary

Did Seeing Other People inspire you to do anything?

Force myself to keep listening so I would get it finished and could move on to something new.

Any additional comments?

Don't bother unless you like sentimental, daft stories in which you don't mind people who take the path clearly marked 'Stupid'.

A bit frustrating and disappointing

I'm sad to say, as much as I like Mike Gayle, this story really wasn't great. I found it a bit tedious and ridiculous (in a frustrating way). I almost gave up several times but because I'd paid for it I felt I should continue until the end. I spent much of it wishing it would finish so I could start a better book.

To give it credit, the narrator was great and made it much more palatable. I would not say this is awful and a waste of time, but I certainly wish I'd spent my credit on something else!

Interesting...

I had no idea where this was going; Man thinks he's had an affair, but ghost tells him he hasn't...hmmm, odd! But....The story is heartfelt and has many twists and turns. The ghost bit is a tiny bit odd, but adds to the story. Believable characters and enjoyable story. Worth a listen...in my humble opinion!

Absolutely loved this book

Any additional comments?

I absolutely loved this book and couldn't put it down. Loved the main character - very likeable considering his "mischief". I listened to this on audio book and I thought the actor was great - loved his London and New Zealand accents. Great story, plenty of twists and turns. The young boy in the story was adorable.
