Absolutely amazing stuff. I could hardly believe how much I enjoyed this book. The narration was lively and enjoyable (adorable accents) and the story itself was brilliant. I really do enjoy Marian Keyes' portrayal of strong, smart and yet flawed women. I think that much of her brilliance lies in her ability to pull her reader in with humour, and then deliver her sucker punch. I also liked that it was a big fat long unabridged book - totally creditworthy! :)

Would you listen to This Charming Man again? Why?
Yes - I loved the characters and story
What was one of the most memorable moments of This Charming Man?
When Chloe turned up on Lola's doorstep
What does Caroline Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I love Caroline's delivery - she brings the quirkiness to light and is able to really bring the characters to life.
Who was the most memorable character of This Charming Man and why?
Lola - hilarious
Any additional comments?
Highly recommend this book.
Probably just not my cup of tea or caught me on a bad day, but I can’t listen any more, the story is repetitive, and so lame, the style of writing ; a kind of clipped shorthand doesn’t work with narration for me.
I’ll be returning it for a refund

Oh dear this really didn't suit me at all. What a waste of money. Bits of it were interesting - but they were few and far between. I didn't like the diary style of writing, or at least not one that needed an entry every few minutes. The Marnie story was just plain boring. Perhaps I would have enjoyed an abridged version more, but I usually enjoy long books, and normally love Marian Keyes work which I find amusing and upbeat in the main. Apart from the diary, it was hard to see where Paddy fitted in. Altogether a depressing book. Not my sort of thing sadly.

This book has some of the most annoying writing ever!!! A third of the book doesn't use prepositions which is like listening to someone read a grocery list. I persevered because it was rated so high but the author really needs a rap over the knuckles for using such poor skills. Other than that third it's not too bad.

The style of writing is terribly hard to listen to and NOT like other Marian Keyes books at all. If this had been the first book of hers I would have never read another. Even though the style was awful, I wanted to hear the story through as the story itself was ok, good even but half way through, it changed to a totally different book!! I shuffled forward and sure enough, it was a whole other book.
