Publisher's Summary

A thoughtful, captivating and ultimately uplifting novel from this uniquely talented author. Jasmine loves two things: her sister and her work. And when her work is taken away she has no idea who she is. Matt loves two things: his family and the booze. Without them, he hits rock bottom. One New Year's Eve, two people's paths collide. Both have time on their hands; both are at a crossroads. But as the year unfolds, through moonlit nights and suburban days, an unlikely friendship slowly starts to blossom. Sometimes you have to stop still in order to move on. Original and poignant, The Year I Met You will make you laugh, cry and celebrate life.

Some what boring and repetitive

Listened to the first 4 chapters and while the narrator was pleasant enough, the story line was boring. The author told the reader her character lost her job so many times that I felt like yelling "get over it!!!" There was no real story to get your teeth into - only how loosing her job made our heroine rethink her boring life. Well enough for me as I like a bit more depth to a book so I'm deleting it.

Cecelia Ahern does it again

I've loved all of Cecelia Ahern's books for their quirky, feel-good story lines and her latest offering does not disappoint. Listening to the book as I drove to and from work each day, my 50 minute commute disappeared in an instant as I was drawn into the very satisfying story and great narration.

A different kind of relationship story

What made the experience of listening to The Year I Met You the most enjoyable?

It was surprising. There were turns to the story I didn't expect and that kept me returning to the book as often as I could! I didn't foresee the way it would go from the title.

I also really enjoyed the narrator's Irish lilt

Have you listened to any of Remie Purtill-Clarke’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No I haven't heard Remie read before but would look out for her narration in other books.

Any additional comments?

Not a love story but a "good friend" story between a man and a woman whose relationship changes and improves over one year.

An enjoyable listen

Where does The Year I Met You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I did really enjoy this audio book, it was great to listen to during commutes, however I did find it a little slow in places and occasionally I found that difficult to follow on short journeys. So although I did really enjoy the story once I got into it, I wouldn't say it has been my favourite to listen to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Year I Met You?

I would say highlighting Down Syndrome, it has been the first audio book I have listened to, to promote disability in the way this book did.

What does Remie Purtill-Clarke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I loved how the characters were bought to life. The accents are great in the story and the characters were easy to distinguish.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I thought it was heartwarming.

Any additional comments?

I would like to thank Audible for sending this in exchange for an honest review.

Not her best

The main character's description of everything she's doing, and I mean EVERYTHING, is tiresome. There's not really much of a plot either. I would steer clear. I read "The Marble Collector" a little while ago and found it much more enjoyable.

Not her best

I love Cecelia Ahearns novels but this one is not great. The end moral is great but the way it was written was frustrating. The narrator is ok but you can often hear her mouth getting dry and she has a monotone quite often.
