Great book by one of my new fave authors - but yikes! The narrator! She sounds like Ringo Starr. Heavy accent probably won't faze the UK listeners but really hard to understand for me - and not helped by the fact that she speaks very rapidly, runs all the words together, and tends to mumble and fade out at the end of sentences. Even weirder, she not only doesn't bother to change voices with different characters, she actually goes up when voicing the character of Ben. Makes him sound like a little girl. Almost impossible to distinguish what characters she's voicing with little or no change - or an odd change like with Ben. The storyline is great, but this is one that might have been better to purchase and read!

I wish I could give a detailed description of the book but I can't because the audible version is a HEAVY Irish accent and was impossible for me to understand. I made it through 3 chapters and had to archive it. Not only was it impossible to decipher the readers accent, but trying so hard to listen gave me a headache! Disappointed!! I should have played the sample longer!
What a lovely surprise this audiobook was. It looks like a standard chick lit, which I would usually avoid listening to. However, it is a real gem! It is perfectly read by Julie Hesmondhalgh ('Hayley' to us Corrie fans!), it's funny, moving and for me, full of nostalgia (for my student days in Manchester). I became completely immersed in the characters lives and was very sad to finish it. Can't wait for the next book by Mhairi McFarlane.

hThis is a fantastic book from a great new chick-lit talent. I have listened to it twice and absolutely loved it. The narrator's Sheffield accent takes a little bit of getting used to but I would urge you to bear with it. It's a gripping 'will they - won't they?' storyline with the mystery of what happened between the male and female characters in the past as a constant theme throughout the book.
I am eagerly anticipating Mhairi McFarlane's next book.

I absolutely love 'it's not me, it's you' and adored the main characters Delia - so was really excited to listen to this. Unfortunately I just couldn't like the main character Rachel - not sure if it was the the narrators voice but i just 'click' with her. The story was good and listenable but definitely wouldn't listen again. A bit disappointing

Huge fan of Mhairi. No one elae makes me laugh out loud as much as her books. This one is another goodie. Only slight downside (which wasn't much of a downaide for me) was it was sometimes hard to tell if the narration was character talk or doing internal thoughts.
