Publisher's Summary

Wandering around a busy railway station, a confused man realises he has suffered a total memory loss. When he is eventually rescued, he is told that his breakdown has probably been triggered by his marital problems. Does his amnesia provide the chance for him to be a better husband and make his marriage finally work? Or is there perhaps one last memory he has yet to recover that will blow everything wide open?

Right from the beginning i knew that I would enjoy the laughs in this novel. Good British humour but thought that it would be a little lightweight. Slowly but surely some insights into the nature of marriage emerge. The humour was sustained and in the end I had a thoroughly good time.

Heartwarming novel, so true to life

This story throws you directly into a man's total loss of memory, and leads you gently, but sometimes crudely, back into his past life and experiences. Rupert Farley's narration is perfect and he does a brilliant job of separating all the different characters (one of my favourites is the dog!). It is a heartwarming, funny and at times very sad book, which speaks many truths of the difficulty and joys of marriage and other relationships. Despite being somewhat predictable at times, I thought it was a compelling drama, which made me really hang out for the next chapter! I thoroughly recommend this book.

The Man who forgot his Wife

This was a fascinating study of relationships not only with between people but with himself. It was both funny and thought provoking. I listened to it far too quickly because I couldn’t leave him! As important as a good story, another attribute to this audio book was the beautiful narration. Rupert Farley brought all the characters to life with excellent voices that portrayed each of the characters so realistically. I shall definitely search out other books that he has narrated.
