Publisher's Summary

Hello. Two things you should know about me: 1) My name is Karen Carpenter. 2) Just before Christmas my boyfriend left me. I'm not THE Karen Carpenter. I just have the most embarrassing name in Christendom. Oh yeah. The boyfriend. After 11 'happy' years he left me. No explanation, just a post it on the kettle. I think I'm handling it really well. I don't think I'm confused at all. What was my name again?

Beautiful Written. Beautifully Read

This was the last of Harvey's back catalogue for me to listen to and I was once again so sad that it had to end. I'd become so involved and engaged with the main character I actually cried when it finished.

It built nicely and although I knew where the story was headed, it didn't detract from the experience and the humour was present as always with Jonathan Harvey's books.

I absolutely LOVE this author and cannot wait for him to write me some more stories.

Truly dreadful.....

This is the first time I have given up on a book. I loved Jonathan Harvey's other books and rated them highly. Sadly this book beat me after 2 chapters. The narrator was dreadful, monotone, and no attempt to add any characterisation. It was so flat, it was like a schoolgirl reading a story she had written for English homework. With all the talented women who could have brought this story to life this particular narrator was picked!
