Meet Juliette. She's intelligent, driven, committed - and in love. Juliette loves Nate. She will follow him anywhere. She's even become a flight attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him. They are meant to be. The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back. She is the perfect girlfriend. And she'll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants. True love hurts, but Juliette knows it's worth all the pain....

not a bad story and I adore Anna Friel but all I could hear at the end of every sentence was her swallowing saliva, it was so distracting and once I noticed it it became totally fixated on it and I couldn't finish the book

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live. Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world....

this has to be ine of the best books listened to in a while, very well narrated, poignant, funny and sad in places, the writing was so good that I could actually visualise the characters and situations that were described. highly recommended

Overall the story was ok but not very gripping and I feel it could have been about 2 hours shorter

The narration was good until it came to the welsh accents which morphed from welsh to Pakistani every time which was really irritating and detracted from the story
