It turns out she's been ignoring it and it needs to meet with her face to face. It sounds peculiar, but Lucy's read about this in a magazine. Anyway, she can't make the date: she's much too busy despising her job, skipping out on her friends friends and avoiding her family. But Lucy's life isn't what it seems.

Publisher's Summary

The stunning and magical new novel from the Number One bestselling author

Lying on Lucy Silchester's carpet one day when she returns from work is a gold envelope. Inside is an invitation - to a meeting with Life. Her life. It turns out she's been ignoring it and it needs to meet with her face to face.

It sounds peculiar, but Lucy's read about this in a magazine. Anyway, she can't make the date: she's much too busy despising her job, skipping out on her friends friends and avoiding her family.

But Lucy's life isn't what it seems. Some of the choices she's made - and stories she's told - aren't what they seem either. From the moment she meets the man who introduces himself as her life, her stubborn half-truths are going to be revealed in all their glory - unless Lucy learns to tell the truth about what really matters to her.

Lucy Silchester has an appointment with her life - and she's going to have to keep it.

Touching, warm, funny and poignant, Cecelia Ahern's new novel explores what happens when you stop paying attention to your life.

    "Lovely quirky story"

    I enjoyed this book and it was easy to get in to. The characters were well presented. The main character is very likeable, struggling to appear confident and happy by weaving a web of innocent lies to hide the fact that she was not, which in turn confuses both family and friends. Whilst she tries to come to terms with the end of a love affair, keep a job, maintain her friendships and pretend all is fine, in walks "Her Life" who helps her to face things and move forward. Lovely quirky story. Recommended.

    I'm 29, happily married and a full time nurse. Audible is a god send to squeeze in some reading time and escapism.

    "An unsure read"

    I did listen to the whole story, mostly out of curiosity because I had no idea what the book was about or where it was going. It was funny & narrated well but I think I must have missed the point. I thought that epilogue was the most enlightening part of the book, sorry.

    "Terrible narration"

    I love Cecilias books but the voice of this narrator is flat and irritating so I couldn't get past the first five minutes. Such a pity.

    "Disappointing"

    I just couldn't get to grips with this book at all. I stuck it out for nearly half of it but found my mind was wondering. Which means its not gripping enough. Lots of characters dipping in and out. And I started to not make head nor tail of the story which just goes on and on over the same stuff. And the audio voice got a bit winey. I was disappointed.
