About the Author

The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me is Lucy Robinson's third book and follows on from her highly successful novels The Greatest Love Story of All Time and A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger. Prior to writing Lucy earned her crust in theatre production and then factual television, working on documentaries for all of the UK's major broadcasters. Her writing career began when she started a dating blog for Marie Claire about her fairly pathetic attempt at Internet dating.

Lucy was brought up in Gloucestershire surrounded by various stupid animals. She studied at Birmingham University and lived in London for many years before disappearing off to South America to write her first two novels. This is the first novel she has written in a sensible manner (IE at home).

Lucy lives in Bristol with her partner, The Man. She likes dogs and cheese and horses and seals and cake and baths and she blogs daily about funny things that have made her smile today.

Good story, good character development and very good in it's genre: chicklit. I always enjoy a Lucy Robinson. The supporting characters are not as strong as the main: they show up and disappear again. That's a pity, because when beter drawn, the story becomes more rounded.

I have to be honest right from the beginning and say I LOVED The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me. My review just won’t be able to do the story justice …

Firstly, the format was great. If you read my reviews you will know how much I enjoy a timeline that goes back to the past and then present time, allowing the reader to know just enough to be curious to find out how our characters arrived at the position they’re in now. Robinson titles the chapter with ‘scenes’ and ‘acts’ in keeping with opera which I thought gave it that added extra!

So … the story begins with an overture. It’s the day before Sally starts her post-grad opera diploma. The visitor at her front door is intriguing – who is he and what happened in New York?

Act One Scene One gives the reader background on her Sally’s childhood and sets the scene for her love of opera (and her fear!).

As the story builds and connects in both timelines, I was fascinated watching Sally’s operatic journey just as much as her romantic life. I thought she was a fabulous lead. The reader really gets to feel her fear about singing, identify with her mothering instincts towards Fiona as well as feel indignant about J!

While I’m talking about characters I just have to say I ADORED Jan Borsos. He is so vibrant. His energy and zest for life literally bounces off the pages … refreshingly too that Sally’s relationship with him worked even while J was there in the background. The first time she stays with him is hilarious!

The underlying theme of the opera and the training drew me in. It’s obvious that Robinson has researched and at the end of the story in my proof copy, we find out the hard work she put into the research.

I'm coming to it a little late, but I really loved this book. Sally was my best friend within the first few pages - I felt her fear and uncertainty, and wanted to be there in the wardrobe with her. The structure is really clever - broken up into acts and scenes, to-ing and fro-ing between Sally's childhood, the traumatic time in New York and the present day. It's a wonderful sweeping love story that has you on the edge of your seat, just hoping that things will work out as you want them to.

But the love story isn't all of it - the book has a hard and realistic edge, dealing with some major and traumatic issues. Again though, the author has that wonderful humour that runs through the whole book - a scene that has you in tears, will be followed by one that has you laughing out loud. And as for the characters - they're wonderful. I loved the exuberant Jan Borsos, as I expect most people did - but I also adored Sally's flatmate from Barry Island, and grew particularly fond of Julian's mother and (unexpectedly) of Sally's own family. And, while I'm no keener on opera really than I am on horses (I read this after The Day We Disappeared), the research really brought the whole world of opera to life.

So, my verdict on Lucy Robinson's books? If you enjoy a good story that takes you somewhere you really don't expect to go, characters you'll believe in and love, writing that makes you laugh but sometimes changes into something that tears your heart apart, then please try her books. I haven't enjoyed a weekend this much in ages.

My thanks to netgalley and publishers Penguin for my copies of both books.

Firstly I’d like to thank the publishers for sending me this book to read and share my honest opinion. I’ve enjoyed other books by Lucy Robinson (reviews on my blog) so I couldn’t wait to get started.

Right from the beginning I was hit by Lucy’s familiar humour and drawn in by some very vivid characters. I could tell that reading this book was going to be quite a ride! The comedy continued throughout the book and I must admit that it was my kind of humour. The writing style had a certain bluntness to it which simply made me laugh and I do love a book that makes me laugh out loud while I’m reading.

The opera side of the storyline was actually quite fascinating for me, I knew nothing about opera before reading this book and, while it certainly didn’t make me an expert, I do feel like I learned a few things about the world of opera.

There was an intense mystery surrounding Sally’s trip to New York and what had happened there. I came up with a few predictions as to what the big drama was (all of which were wrong) but in the end it all became too much for me and I found myself screaming (in my head of course because little one was asleep) WHAT HAPPENED IN NEW YORK??? There were snippets of information along the way but then just as I thought I was about to find out, I was whisked back to the present day – Lucy Robinson you certainly know how to tease your readers!

I mentioned that the characters were vivid – the most vivid of them all were Barry and Jan, let me tell you why…

Barry was just epic! I could picture him so clearly stood there talking to Sally and calling her ‘chicken’. His massive personality really jumped off the page and made me smile every time he spoke.
Jan was equally as epic (are we all picturing the epic strut right now?
