Summary

What do you do when the man in you life lets you down? Show him the door? Chuck his clothes out of the window? If only it was that easy - especially when you've got an eight year old to think about and a part-time job that barely pays the milk bill.

Beautifully written, rich characters, great story!

If you could sum up He's Got to Go in three words, what would they be?

Beautifully written, feel-good

What did you like best about this story?

The quality of the writing made it a real joy. Even some of my favourite authors write some sentences badly. Most books in this genre have too many 'she saids' or repeats of 'it' and the like. Not here though. O'Flanagan's use of vocabulary was faultless. The characters were especially richly drawn, allowing the reader/listerner to experience them as well known friends. It was short on bland cliche, and rich on depth of narrative.

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

Caroline is one of my favourite narrators. As usual, she was faultless.

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

No, but I felt very engaged with the characters.

Really enjoyable

An easy story to listen to with likeable characters. A tad annoying with the 'he said' 'she said'. Surely a seasoned author could think of other ways to depict who is saying what.

The story is somewhat predictable but it's a, what I call...a palate cleanser Sunday afternoon read. A story to listen to inbetween your usual genre to refresh your brain ready for your next nitty gritty book.

Narrated very well indeed.

It would be nice if there's a follow on book from this as I'd like to know what happens to the characters. I guess that's the nosy part of me.I did feel like I was a spy on the wall to these three ladies.

Disappointing

Should have had the title : Story of three silly women! I've enjoyed Sheila Flanaghan's books so far, but these three sisters are self-centred and silly. None of them seems capable of facing up to anything in their lives and none of them seem to care about anything but themselves and how events are going to affect them. The Spanish holiday chapters are beyond belief - how anyone capable of holding down a job and running a home would set off for a holiday home in rural Spain without stopping first to buy food is beyond me! I stuck it out to the end just because, as usual, Caroline Lennon's narration was excellent.

Too long...

This story is three hours too long and the title doesn't reflect the story at all. The voice grates after what seems like 27 hours and the intonation is dreadful at times. The ending is feeble and rushed.

DULL AS DISHWATER

Any additional comments?

Such an incredibly boring read. Kept waiting for it to pick up. There were twists that could have been put in that weren't. Couldn't tell the characters apart they were all equally as lifeless and indulged in petty bickering throughout. Very disappointed after reading such good reviews.
