Publisher's Summary

What happens when the girl next door becomes 'that girl off the telly.' There are some things in life you can always rely on. Living in the shadow of your 'perfect' brother Joey, getting the flu over Christmas, and your Mother showing you up in the supermarket. Then there are some things you really don't count on happening: a good dose of fame, getting completely trashed at an awards ceremony, and catching your fella doing something unmentionable on your wedding day. This is my story, it's dead tragic. You have been warned... Jodie xx

    "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme!"

    A fun and frothy romp, a little predictable in places, but some great one liners and situations that draw on Harvey's TV work. A tour de force performance from Leanne Best - cracking!

    "Another great book by Jonathan Harvey"

    This is the second of Jonathan Harvey's books I've listened to and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of twists and turns, most of them fairly predictable but even then still totally engaging and enjoyable.

    I loved the voices Leanne did for each of the characters, even though some of the accents left a lot to be desired! Ming was my favourite voice.

    I'm looking forward to my next instalment of Jonathan Harvey's back catalogue and will be disappointed when I run out of titles!

    Story
    "Narrator made this great."

    Good story but Leanne Best made this better. Bit of Gimme Gimme Gimme humour in here and the whole thing was great from start to finish. Really disappointed that I can't find any others narrated by Leanne.

    Story
    "Loved this book"
    If you could sum up All She Wants in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, moving, Scouse!


    What other book might you compare All She Wants to, and why?

    It was not my typical read at all but after several crime thrillers I thought I would try something lighter. It reminded me of a Carla Lane sitcom.


    What does Leanne Best bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She managed to bring the characters to life in such a way you felt You knew the family.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I got a couple of strange looks as I laughed out loud listening to this whilst walking the dog.


    Any additional comments?

    A really enjoyable listen. Has made me want to listen to more like it.

    "Great performance. ...."

    Great narration and instantly engaging, within 10 mins I was hooked. Ultimately I felt the book was a bit overlong, but an enjoyable listen nonetheless. ...

    "I loved this book"

    For the first 10 minutes I didn't think I would like this book but then I was hooked!! I thought Leanne Best narrated it wonderfully. I fell in love with the McGee family and cringed and laughed in equal measure.

    Story
    "Jonathan Harvey ...... That lads my world!"

    Made me laugh out loud and not many books succeed in that. Poignant and hard hitting at times, but the Scouse humour never fails, that unique quality of being able to see the comedy in the tragic.

    The performance was 'bangin' from a real Scouser rather than an actor trying to copy the accent, Leanne Jones' rendition was 'fab', she WAS Jodie.

    'Dead gutted ' when it came to an end. I'll miss Jodie's stories. Jonathan how about a follow up on Jodie's antics???

    As they say in Liverpool it was 'boss'

    "A great narration brings this book alive"

    Light entertainment that's enjoyable right from the start. The narrator brings the central character alive with lots of laughs along the way
