Sophisticated, sympathetic, witty, and razor-sharp in its observations of the sub-text of married life, this is a wonderfully accomplished and enjoyable novel which develops totally out of the characters it creates.
About the author: Huth is the daughter of the actor Harold Huth. She left school at age 16 in order to paint and to study art in both France and Italy. At 18 she travelled, mostly alone, across the United States before returning to England to work on a variety of newspapers and magazines. She married journalist and travel writer Quentin Crewe and soon became known most for her writing, having written three collections of short stories and 11 novels. She also writes plays for radio, television and stage, and is a well-known freelance journalist, critic, and broadcaster. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

Narrator should be ashamed of himself
What would have made Invitation to the Married Life better?
A different reader
Would you be willing to try another book from Angela Huth? Why or why not?
Yes - the story is pleasant. Not earth-shakingly great literature, but a good story.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator does a perfectly acceptable job until he voices a female character. For all female voices, he uses a horrible music hall falsetto. It sounds like something out of Monty Python, and it's completely out of place. It's so bad, in fact, that I cannot finish the book. It ruins the listening experience altogether.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
As I said, a pretty good story. What a shame the narrator is more enamored of his drag queen voice than of the author's words.
