Publisher's Summary

Two decades ago Adam Sharp's piano playing led him into a passionate relationship with Angelina Brown, an intelligent and strong-willed actress. They had a chance at something more - but Adam didn't take it.
Now, on the cusp of turning 50, Adam likes his life. He's happy with his partner, Claire; he excels in music trivia at quiz night at the local pub; he looks after his mother; and he does the occasional consulting job in IT. But he can never quite shake off his nostalgia for what might have been.
And then, out of nowhere, from the other side of the world, Angelina gets in touch. What does she want? Does Adam dare to live dangerously?
Set to the soundtrack of our lives, The Best of Adam Sharp follows along with emotion and humor as one man looks back on his past and decides if having a second chance is worth the risk.

Very Interesting!

This is very much a reflective book and I really liked it. My only problem was that I was expecting a Rosie type book, which was so amusing. Mr Simsion is such a good writer and the narrator Mr Barker was wonderful. I will be 70 this year and I can very much relate to the book.

Don't buy this because you like The Rosie Project

The Rosie Project was funny and clever. This book had no funny moments, it is a no-frills "one that got away" novel. What this book has a lot of is pop music references, chronic, relentless pop music references. If that's the kind of thing that you enjoy in prodigious quantity then this is your book. For me however, it felt like torture by the end.
