Open iTunes to Buy


The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Dawn Frenchs’ second brilliant novel, Oh Dear Silvia, featuring a full cast of readers including Gareth Armstrong, Jane Collingwood, Beattie Edmondson, James Fleet, Llewella Gideon, Jack Lowden, James McArdle, Pauline McLynn, Patrice Naiambana, Celine Rosa Tan, Maggie Steed, Ruby Turner, and Dawn herself. Who is in Coma Suite Number 5? A matchless lover? A supreme egotist? A selfless martyr? A bad mother? A cherished sister? A selfish wife? All of these. For this is Silvia Shute, who has always done exactly what she wants. Until now, when her life suddenly, shockingly stops. Her past holds a terrible secret, and now that she is unconscious in a hospital bed, her constant stream of visitors are set to uncover the mystery of her broken life. Meanwhile she must lie there, victim of the beloveds, the borings, the babblings and the plain bonkers. Like it or not, the truth is about to pay Silvia a visit. Again, and again and again...

Oh dear silvia

I found a huge lump in my throat.
Very emotional


Fantastic book and well worth the download.
Love the fact that its read by Dawn French herself but also the fact that the parts are read by their characters as in a play.
Thoroughly enjoyed it


Uploaded this to listen to whilst imobilised with bad back. The story pulls you in so you feel you are part of the family and all the characters are so real. Brilliantly written by Dawn, she even has you laughing where you think you shouldn't be, in the middle of such sadness (look out for the fishtank!). Loved listening to this so much. 5 stars!
