Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Some Kind of Wonderful by Giovanna Fletcher, read by Emily Atack.

When the love of your life says you're not The One, who are you?

Lizzy and Ian have been a couple since the first week of university. Now, after celebrating a decade together, everyone thinks they're about to get engaged.

Instead, a romantic escape to Dubai leaves Lizzy with no ring, no fiancé and no future.

Lizzy is heartbroken - but through the tears, she sees an opportunity. This is her moment to discover what she's been missing while playing Ian's ideal 'better half'. But how much has Ian changed her, and who should she be without him?

Determined to discover who she is at heart, Lizzy sets out to rediscover the girl she was before - and, in the meantime, have a little fun....

    "Book was fab - Dull narrator voice"

    The book was another triumph but oh my goodness the narrators voice was dull and monotone, making the book seem dull even though the story was great. Such a shame, as it spoilt my enjoyment of it.

    "Slight story, flat narration"

    My first Giovanna Fletcher book. It kept coming up in new releases/popular and I was in the mood for something light, but this was too light, too “nothingy” I hate criticising narrators; whoever chose this actor and this direction for this rather slight tale got it wrong, not the narrator herself. Perhaps I might have enjoyed it more had it been narrated in a more exuberant manner, which would have made more of the story, but I doubt it. Difficult to like or care about any of the characters.

    I’d listen to Emily Atack again, but not
    Giovanna Fletcher.

    Story
    "Love the book but....."

    The narration by Emily Atack is awful! Spoken so quickly and rushed, on audible when you slow is down to -75 sounds slurred and boring. Ruined this book for me. I love the story, ordered it on kindle so I did not have to listen. The writing is great, lovely story however I prefer to listen to audio books wish the author had narrated it herself

    "Uplifting & positive"

    Nice easy listening, easy going book, which isn’t all about needing a bloke to be complete or happy. Good alternative perspective on life.
