Publisher's Summary

Xavier Ireland is a radio DJ who listens to the hopes, fears and regrets of sleepless Londoners. Then one day he is forced to confront his own biggest regret. This is a tale of love, loss, and Scrabble- asking questions about life and death, strangers and friends, heartache and comfort, and whether the choices we don't make affect us just as powerfully as those we do.

    "Beginning and middle are very good ..."

    As Danny Wallace rightly stated, this is an at times funny and classy book. I was thoroughly enjoying the story until the ending, which I found to be totally unsatisfactory. It was too rushed, sudden and abrupt with too many unanswered questions. While I'd enjoyed the book up until then and thought it had a very clever plot with some thought-provoking ideas along the lines of the movie Sliding Doors, the ending left me feeling frustrated. Narration - often a maker or breaker of audiobooks - was very good in this case, with some nice voices and accents.

    "Weird"

    Unusual writing. I found it a bit long winded and dull. Loved the fact that the author tells you what happens to people many years in the future as the story goes along.



    I love Mark so might give another book a go, but couldn't recommend this.

    "Enjoyable read"

    It took a few minutes to get into, but this tale of a late night radio presenter in London has been the best book I have read / listened to all year-

    It takes a little while to establish the main characters but rapidly you care about their outcome in a slightly odd and unpredictable story.
