Publisher's Summary

Jojo Harvey is a literary agent whose star is on the rise. In love with both her married boss and her burgeoning career, not much distracts her. Until she finds herself representing two women who used to be best friends. Used to be. One of them, Gemma, has suddenly found herself from a broken home at the age of 32. Meanwhile, Lily, the woman Gemma has always blamed for stealing her one chance of happiness, is enjoying the overnight success of her debut novel. Set in the world of publishing, The Other Side of the Story is about love, loyalty, glass ceilings and survival tactics - and what to do when you get your chance for revenge.

Confusing

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who has plenty of time to read might find this book enjoyable, I found it confusing the way it jumped around from person to person. I read while I'm on public transport and have to stop when I get to my destination and quite often found it hard to pick up again. If I just had time to sit and read at my leisure I may have been able to follow more easily.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I've just ordered a Bryce Courtney book - Fortune Cookie.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Gerri Halligan?

Yes I would, I didn't have a problem with the narration.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really, it was quite predictable. Everyone fitted into their slots at the end a little too tidily.

Any additional comments?

I have read several Marian Keyes books and have enjoyed them and will try her again.

Absolutely Fantastic

I loved this story. The Dublin mother & father were so very real. It was a very predictable plot but just the same, it was a pleasure to listen to. I couldn't wait to listen to it but I never wanted it to end.

Refreshing

Normally I get very irritated with switching back and forth between characters, but not with this one. It was clearly announced that you were about to change characters, which helps, and whats more I liked all of them fairly well, but especially Jojo. So thoroughly enjoyable, and what a shanannigans (how do you spell that?) is life in the publishing world!

Catchy good read.

Over all a good book. Not one of her best, but still great to listen too. Got a bit confusing in places due to there being 3 stories running at the same time, but easy to find where your at and which story your in.
All in all a good read / listen.

Starts slow

Not a bad story, starts a bit slow but picks up and has the predictable happy ending
