Publisher's Summary

Dan Starkey is a young journalist in Belfast, who shares with his wife, Patricia, a prodigious appetite for drinking and dancing. Then Dan meets a beautiful and apparently impoverished student.

What the Critics Say

"Hysterically funny one-liners and sinister Kafkaesque developments..." ( Daily Mail)
" Divorcing Jack is richly paranoid and very funny, it manages to say more about the Troubles in 280 vivid pages than reams of earnest reportage ever could." ( Sunday Times)

Rather an uncomfortable listen

What made the experience of listening to Divorcing Jack the most enjoyable?

I don't really know what to make of this book. The way it is written is quite lighthearted and often very very funny, but the story is far from amusing, and I found it difficult to square the one with the other. An odd one, definitely, and although I might be tempted to try the next in the series, I don't think I'll be listening to it anytime soon.

Not his best work

I've always really enjoyed his books, in particular the Mystery Man series but this one didn't do it for me.

The narrator couldn't really do the american accent assigned to one of the characters but other than that did an ok job.
