A different kind of relationship story

What made the experience of listening to The Year I Met You the most enjoyable?

It was surprising. There were turns to the story I didn't expect and that kept me returning to the book as often as I could! I didn't foresee the way it would go from the title.

An enjoyable listen

Where does The Year I Met You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I did really enjoy this audio book, it was great to listen to during commutes, however I did find it a little slow in places and occasionally I found that difficult to follow on short journeys. So although I did really enjoy the story once I got into it, I wouldn't say it has been my favourite to listen to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Year I Met You?

I would say highlighting Down Syndrome, it has been the first audio book I have listened to, to promote disability in the way this book did.

What does Remie Purtill-Clarke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I loved how the characters were bought to life. The accents are great in the story and the characters were easy to distinguish.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I thought it was heartwarming.

Any additional comments?
