Such a good story. I don't usually pick stories narrated by men but this was a gem. Its the count-down to turning 40 with all the hic-ups inbetween. Highly recommended
Mike Gayle does what I have come to think of as 'Blokelit' - a blokey relationship story for girls to read, done really, really well. Very enjoyable story and narration - you really come to care about the characters. Almost (but not quite) as good as 'My New Best Friend', but great fun in its own right. Check out its prequel 'Turning 30', if you haven't already, as well as agony uncle Mike Gayle's other books. This is not what I would usually read - I don't tend to do chicklit, e.g. - but I loved it.

Where does Turning Forty rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is a great light read about a guy reluctantly entering his fortieth year. From a happy married life with a great paying job, his whole life changes. This is how he works towards managing his impending "adulthood" and change of circumstances. Some happy and funny moments.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Turning Forty?
The great finish.
What three words best describe Matt Bates’s performance?
Well read, you just thought the guy was talking to you.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
It could be so much worse, but you didn't know it at the time.
Any additional comments?
Great beach read for men or women.
