    Description

    Henry has ended his marriage to Caroline and headed off to Noosa with Mercedes' grade three teacher, Martha.

    Caroline, having shredded a wardrobe-full of Henry's suits, has gone after them. Craig and Lesley have dropped over briefly from next door to catch up on the fallout from Henry and Caroline's all-night row.

    And Janice, Caroline's sister, is staying for the weekend to look after the girls because Janice is the sensible one. A microbiologist with a job she loves, a fervent belief in the beauty of the scientific method and a determination to make a solo life after her divorce from Alec.

    Then Craig returns through the bedroom window expecting a tryst with Caroline and finds Janice in her bed, Lesley storms in with a jealous heart and a mouthful of threats, Henry, Caroline and Martha arrive back from the airport in separate taxis - and let's not even get started on Brayden the pizza guy. Janice can cope with all that. But when Alec knocks on the door things suddenly get complicated.

    Harnessing the exquisite timing of the great comedies to the narrative power and emotional intelligence for which she is famous, Toni Jordan brings all her wit, wisdom and flair to this brilliant, hilarious audiobook.

    Entertaining

    Would you consider the audio edition of Our Tiny, Useless Hearts to be better than the print version?

    The narration by Caroline Lee makes the story interesting and entertaining. I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much in the print version.

    What other book might you compare Our Tiny, Useless Hearts to and why?

    Similar to Lianne Morriarty's books I would say.

    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    From a humor standpoint, Craig. He was pretty pathetic and clueless.

    Who was the most memorable character of Our Tiny, Useless Hearts and why?

    Since it was told from Janice's perspective, I would say she is the most memorable. Funny how it all took place at Caroline's house and because of Caroline's circumstance, however her character was quite one dimensional.

    Any additional comments?

    Caroline Lee is an amazing narrator. I could listen to her read the phone book. :) The ending was pretty predicable to me. It wrapped up a little too tidy.

    play rather than a novel

    Funny story about the complexity of relationships. It takes part during one week-end and in one house which makes it feel like a play (especially on the audiobook) more than a novel. Jordan makes some interesting observations about human nature and the nature of the relationships. The only thing which bothered me is that at some moments it tries to be more funny that necessary.

    Caroline Lee enhances every story she narrates

    While I enjoyed this story and Toni Jordan’s prose, I love Caroline Lees narration. Caroline is immeasurably talented and makes narration seem so effortless, yet I know it’s not. A good narrator can enhance a story as much as a poor one can ruin writing. When looking for a new book, I often search for Caroline Lee as I am assured an enjoyable listen.

    Loved it!

    I normally just listen to books on my commute, but with this one I continued listening even as I came inside the house. I couldn't wait to hear what came next! As always Caroline Lee did an amazing job as narrator.

    So unterhaltsam!!!

    Die Geschichte ist sympathisch und lustig, eine einfache und angenehme Lektüre für den Sommer. Aber dieses Hörbuch lebt für mich vom unglaublichen Talen der Sprecherin. Caroline Lee ist einfach fantastisch. Sie kann eine banale Geschichte in ein tolles Erlebnis verwandeln. Inzwischen, wenn ich keinen bestimmten Titel habe, suche ich mein nächstes Büch in Audible nach ihr.
