It will take you by surprise

What made the experience of listening to Mr Loverman the most enjoyable?

The book is beautifully written, as one would expect from Ms Evaristo. This is the story of secret love, told in such an engaging style, with such beautifully drawn characters you can't help but be fully engaged in what is such a sad tale. It had me laughing out loud in places, and near to tears in others. The book is a joy.

Any additional comments?

The performance of James Goode was stellar. He brought authenticity to the characters, and read so beautifully I want to hear more from him. He was the perfect choice to read such a wonderful novel.

Wonderful!

You can't fault this audible story - brilliantly written (so much so, I had to buy the book at savor it in print and am so glad I did, because visually it's so exciting ...)
And superbly read by James Goode. Poignant, real and so funny in parts. A wonderful surprise listen.
