I really cared about the two main characters. However the story seemed to have numerous details about other characters that slowed the narrative unnecessarily. I wish I had known before I bought this audiobook that the narrator had a strong Australian accent. Because I have a hearing loss, I had difficulty understanding some of it as an American who rarely hears that accent. Since this story was told mostly from the male character's point of view, I think the narration would have been more effective if there had been a male narrator instead. The writing was very realistic, making it easy for me to get engrossed in the story.

A women’s narration of a man’s story without much change in her voice, and a female character named Peter (maybe Peta, hard to tell from the pronunciation). Had to really concentrate on who was speaking.
Very thought provoking! Enjoyed the narration. Would like to read more from this author. Thank you.

Beautiful, sad and life affirming. If you want to laugh, cry, then go out and make the most of life, perhaps this book is for you. Keep the tissues handy.

I'm going to have read this book....the appalling narration is grating- as if everything is a question. Moreover there is little characterisation for each of the characters.
This was a wonderful love story that was based in a popular Sydney Australia suburb that I was familiar with. .I jiust hated the NZ sounding accent of the narrator Federay Holmes, whom seemed to pronounce every word like a Kiwi and every swear word seemed to be read louder, if the New Zeakand accent does not give you the cringe factor than you would probably rate this book alot higher.
