Comments Other People's Husbands

  • Bex

    Judy Astley writes about issues we can all relate to, and her latest book, 'Other People's Husbands', is no exception. This book is a light, enjoyable read. We meet Sara and Conrad who are both at crisis point, and who have to deal with their issues separately. We also meet their two daughters, Cass and Panda, along with some other family and friends. All the characters are likeable, and Sara is someone to whom you can really warm to, as well as relate to. Conrad is very humourous. Themes such a [...]

    This is not a bad book it's just slightly boring. I didn't really make any time to read it except for the last 40 mins becuase I just wanted to get it finished and move on. It picks up towards the end. Made me think about age and how it must be awful to slowly lose your marbles or even to watch that happen to someone you loved. I'd have been as freaked out as Sara if my boyfriend decided one day that he just wanted to end his life. I'm also glad Sara disapporved of parents letting their kids tre [...]

    I found this book great. Dealing with several issues at the same time. A 25 years age gap between husband and wife, which when they married was not an issue ,but now as the husband approaches 70 he is beginning to feel that it might be. He also is finding the turning 70 difficult and feels maybe the time has come to depart the world.As others have said it is a chic flick but with relevant issues dealt with in a not too morose way.


  • Dorothy

    What was I thinking? I should've paid more attention to the blurb than to the reviews on the jacket. A very lightweight little story about two middle-aged women playing at being unfaithful, then running back to their husbands whom they absolutely adore and are, deep down, blissfully happy with. Add a few unruly grown-up children, make them say "like" a lot and throw in a Goth girlfriend, to show how up-to-date you are. Oh, and a cute little baby. The End.


  • Philippa

    Bit disappointed in this one to be honest. I usually love this authors books, but this didn't grab me at allwas just okay.Sara and Conrad have been happily married for 30 odd years despite a 25 year age gap, but suddenly Conrad starts to feel his age and Sara starts to consider feeling a younger man. Meanwhile, the younger generation have their own romantic angst going on.


  • Helen

    I thought this book started off really well. I like the way Judy Astley writes, it had good characters and an interesting situation - Conrad has decided that he does not want to get any older and therefore it is now time to die, although he's not sure how to go about this. However, I just felt that the ending was a bit flat.


  • Carol

    I was looking forward to this read, but it just didn't work for me. I was more irritated by the character development than intrigued. The last couple of chapters showed more of Judy Astley's skill, but overall I was pleased to put the book down.


  • Tonileg

    I would have a hard time summarizing this multi-layered story. There is a lot going on in the lives on this artistic family. Once again, I have a hard time believing that huge age gap relationships can work long term and this story develops the realistic pros and cons.


  • Rachael

    I tried, but these characters were rather unlikable . I was also constantly distracted by the run on sentences (often containing multiple ideas) & the frequent tautologies.It's unfortunate, because I think it could have been a funny & thought provoking book.


  • Juliana Graham

    An OK book - pretty chick litty really, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but I've read funnier/more gripping/more realistic. Took a while to get going and whilst all the loose ends were tied up it did seem to fizzle a little bit at the end


  • Mary (BookHounds)

    Did you ever really want to read a book, then only to be a little disappointed by it? I felt a little let down after reading this one. It was a decent "older" chick lit story, but for some reason it fell a little flat for me.


  • Marion Benwell

    A good laugh and, well, a little morbid


  • Zoe

    Never read a Judy Astley before not in any rush to read another.


  • Lynda
