So Enjoyable

When I first read & then listened to this book my mum had just died and I just identified with so much in here (no main characters die!). It is such a well written and thought out book with realistic characters (I’ve actually known people like Arabella & Alistair!!!!) And a sense of humour that makes it a pleasure to read and listen to. The narrator is excellent and conveys the scenes wonderfully. So thank you to A E Radley for writing such an enjoyable escape and Ella Lynch whose narration gave it a distinct personality!!!

Surprisingl enjoyable

Not my normal genre, but I actaully really enjoyed this title. The characters were well rounded and brilliantly deliniated by the narrator. Not the most complex of story lines, but touching nonetheless. I would read more from this author, and I would definitely listen to more from this narrator.

enjoyable and not my usual choice.

I quite enjoyed this book despite it being different to the usual kind of books I read/listen too, it was a well written with some nice dialogue and characterization between the two main characters. The narration brought the characters out of their shell more and I really enjoyed the softly spoken Rebecca and accent given to Arrebella, I really enjoyed Ella lynch's narration style and will look out for her in the future.

Such an enjoyable listen!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were so true to life and their ‘journey’ both literal and emotional was a joy to follow.
Ella Lynch’s narration was just lovely and really brought the story to life. Characters were easily distinguishable and I couldn’t stop listening. I will definitely look out for more by this Author and this Narrator.

Average story but brilliant narration!

For a story in which not that much actually happened it felt quite long but I didn't mind because I was narrated brilliantly. Ella's voice is a joy to hear and she cleverly defined each character. 10/10 for Ella.

Very Sweet!

I did not know what to expect from this author, but I really enjoyed this audio book. The characters were likable, the dialogue was witty, and their adventure was adorable. I was hoping for a sex scene, but... it was still great! The narrator did an amazing job with both accents.

I loved the audio edition of The Road Ahead. I had already read and loved the ebook edition. So good on audio. Excellent story, great characters. Ella Lynch does an excellent job with the narration.

Sweet, enjoyable romance!

Prior to this my recent audiobook listens had been quite dark, so when I heard a sweet English voice begin the story, it took me a minute to adjust. But once I did, I rather enjoyed it! This is a polar-opposite-strangers-meet-and-are-reluctantly-thrown- together story. They barely tolerate one another until they realize there's more to both of them than meets the eye. For me, this was the equivalent of a Hallmark movie lesbian style - and I mean that in the best way possible. It is sweet, makes you chuckle at times, has some tug-at-the heart- moments and is one you can safely listen to while your kids are playing in the room. And why not? There's plenty of room for that in the lesfic mix.

What a roadtrip!

Crowded airports, an unexpected roundtrip, and complete opposites make for a great tale. Fun listening!

Love!

This is an adorable story with great narration. My only complaint is that it wasn't longer! I need to hear more about their journey. Maybe there'll be a sequel?

Short and sweet...too short

This light, sweet, and charming story of the attraction of opposites perks along pleasantly until the rather abrupt and unresolved ending. Still, it's a nice enough listen with a fine narrator who helps make it more than good enough to justify the use of a credit. I'd happily listen to the sequel, if audible offered it.
