Publisher's Summary

Ever wondered what happened to your first love? Imagine bumping into them 12 years later and realizing you still fancy them rotten. That's exactly what happens to Dig Ryan when he sees Delilah again. 

Now imagine you're Nadine. You and Dig have been best friends for 15 years. And you've finally realized that you're in love with him. So when Delilah - who was always your nemesis - returns, you're mad with jealousy and can't help behaving childishly...like phoning Phil just to get your own first love back....

Thirtynothing is a story of ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, and friends dabbling with yesterday when they should really be thinking about today.

Great story!

This story is my favourite Lisa Jewell so far! The narrator is amazing! Each character has a distinct and unique voice. I’d be happy to have Helen Duff narrate most of my audiobooks.

Well...

I have listened to several Lisa Jewell - I enjoy most of her books, but this one (and another one or two to be honest) was about characters I never really cared about, so I never really cared about what happened to them. I finished the book as I was mildly curious... Good narration.

Performance is awful.

You can hear the Performer swallow and it at times sounds like she’s smoking. I wish I had bought the book instead.

Worst Audible ever- could not finish.

Stupid stupid stupid. The first Audible book I cannot finish. How can this be her latest book? It’s written as 2001 - characters are awful. This has to be Lisa Jewell’s first novel attempt rescued from a moldy attic. I really want a refund.

I love Lisa Jewell but.....

I have greatly enjoyed all of the studies I’ve read/listened to from Lisa Jewell. I have also enjoyed some previous stories narrators by Helen Duff. This, however, was a painful listen. Story wise, it was good. Though I was distracted and irritated by random, highly unnecessary bits of bigoted homophobia tossed in so causally. The performance, however, was far more distracting as it had numerous tongue clicks or lip smacks that were grating as can be. I also could hear her turn the pages she was reading so often! It was very distracting and annoying.

Just an okay listen

Usually love her books, but it took a long time to get to the end and to the meat of the story...

Delightful story

Really enjoyed another Lisa Jewel Rom Com. Albeit predictable the storyline was just complicated and hilarious enough to keep this reader unable to shut off the recording and get some sleep. This could be a great movie. Reese Whitherspoon should check it out. Thank you Lisa Jewell. Sadly that was the very last of your books I had yet to read. Hope you are working on another. And BTW the narration by Helen Duff could not have been more perfect.

Helen Duff still my fave

Her voice just suites Lisa’s stories so well. I always choose her narrations first. Story is cleanly tied into a bow. I love that Lisa does that. I just don’t like wondering or imagining the characters life after... but that’s just me.

Least favorite Lisa Jewell book

I loooooove nearly all of Kids Jewell's books and this one is my least favorite. It was slow in the beginning and then picked up near the end, but not in a way I enjoyed. I felt like her other books had more we'll written storylines and interesting plots. This one just fell really short for me.

Couldn’t finish

Lisa Jewell has become one of my favorite authors, and I love Helen Duff as a narrator. That being said I couldn’t finish this book… Nothing really happens… I kept looking at how many hours were remaining. Too many! Yawn.

Favorite Lisa Jewell book

I’ve been listening to as many of Lisa Newell’s books as I can. I always find them completely immersive, fascinating and I speed through them because I can’t seem to turn them off. I saw a negative review on this one and I just had to counteract it. This was definitely my favorite Lisa Jewell book. It was so perfect I’m sad i finished it and can no longer go back and visit these characters.
