Présentation de l'éditeur

A #1 ebook phenomenon: over 300,000 downloads!

"5 Stars: a nuanced, well-written tale ... the surprises along the way make it unputdownable" - frothyreads.com

"5 Stars: I loved this and cannot wait to read more of this author's books" - The Kindle Book Review


Following his 2011 top ten hit The Case of The Missing Boyfriend, Nick Alexander returns with a fresh #1 bestseller: The Half-Life of Hannah.

"If your first love came back to offer you everything you ever dreamed of, what would you do? "

Hannah is thirty-eight and the happily married mother of eleven-year-old Luke, the diamond in her world. Her marriage is reassuringly stable, and after fifteen years she has managed to push the wild dreams of youth from her mind and concentrate on the everyday satisfactions of here and now. The first half of her life hasn’t been as exciting as she had hoped, but then, she reckons, whose has?

When she succeeds in convincing husband Cliff to rent a villa in the south of France for a summer vacation with her sister Jill and gay friend Tristan, she’s expecting little more than a pleasant few weeks with her family.
But they each have their own baggage – their own secrets – ready to explode on this not-so-relaxing holiday in France.
When a phone call at the villa announces the imminent arrival of a ghost from her past, the ambiance is transformed into a raging sea of jealousy as Hannah is forced to question everything she thought she knew and believed.

But is she brave enough to take the life-changing decisions her future happiness requires?

The sequel to this novel, Other Halves, will be published on the 12th December, 2013.

Reading the different publication from readers, I was looking forward to reading this book.
However, never managed to read more than 15 % as it never got anywhere.
Fortunately only 0.49 euros...

Very light. Not very credible or interesting characters. OK to read on a journey but basically rather boring and mundane.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another winner :) 19 septembre 2012
Par Ashrae - Publié sur Amazon.com

I downloaded this book cos I have read a fair few of Mr Alexander's books and enjoyed them. Firstly, I found the book to be very well balanced. Yes, it starts off gently, the chapters switching between the third person "here and now" and the first person (Hannah) "background" which, imo, is necessary for the rest of the book to tie up neatly and didn't distract me from the story one little bit. The whole book starts to build steadily into the crescendo and (never saw that coming) twist at the end, finishing neatly sewn up but also leaving the story open for further continuation either from the author or, in my case cos I felt I knew the characters well enough by then, from my own imagination.
The characters were real and very well fleshed out. At times during the book I really felt for them, both positively and negatively. I laughed with them, I shouted at them, I worried for them and, I also have to admit, I cried with them too. I have always found this author to be great at characterisation and this book was no exception. I suspect he has been out and about sharpening up his people watching skills.
I also really enjoyed the style of writing. As already mentioned, there is a mix of 1st and 3rd person and yes, admittedly, it did take a little bit of getting used to but after a few chapter switches I settled into the swing of it very well. However, just when I found myself ticking along nicely, the author pops another style into the mix in the form of letters. So now we have three styles to get on with and blow me down if it doesn't work perfectly.
The story itself is much more than just the return of a lost love, it is about family and friends, their personal interaction and looking into each other's lives and the comparison of what we see and what is actually there and how much really is just a mask. For me, it was a reminder that you really don't know what is happening behind closed doors, even in your own house.
All in all, another winner from Mr Alexander. I would dearly love him to continue with either this story or at least some of the characters from it, so I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for more from him.

Nick Alexander gives us another book full of funny, somewhat damaged and very real characters. Hannah stuggles with the challenges her family and friends face while struggling to address her own issues. We all know people just like Hannah and that makes for an engaging read!

I stumbled across this book on my Kindle. I am so very happy that I did. What a wonderful read this book was. Hannah is in a loving relationship so we are led to believe however like many people in life she has regrets. She cant go back and change the past or the future or can she????? This book makes you realise that you only have one chance at life and just because you choose one direction it does not mean that you can not change that at any time. It is freezing and miserable at the moment however this book took me to warmer climates and put a lovely smile on my face. Even though I have finished the book I am still thinking about the characters and wonder what they are doing now. Please don't miss the chance to read a great book.

Par mlr - Publié sur Amazon.com

Are you a responsible oldest child (perhaps a little boring) or a carefree youngest or a relaxed middle child? What are family holidays like for you? - a recipe for bonding or disaster or something in between!
Hannah's holiday has her wondering just like most of us "What if?" She is enjoying her summer holiday in France with her husband Cliff and two children. Also sharing the holiday house is Hannah's sister Jill, Jill's daughter Aisha and Jill's gay friend, Tristan. Then, into this holiday mix comes an unexpected visitor and Hannah has to reflect on the "road not taken". Once long ago she was tempted to do something very out of character. Or was it?
The two sisters, like many, have very different outlooks on life. Jill, a single mother, scrapes along, relying on friends and family to help her out with cooking, child care and finances. Hannah, on the other hand, has a very strong sense of duty and responsibility and Jill's happy-go- lucky attitude causes some tensions. The family scenes are well written with believable characters, including the grumpy husband who is upset when the GPS seems to lead them astray.
I sympathised with Hannah and hoped she would make the right choice for a whole life. Nick Alexander has written a novel which we can enjoy, while reflecting on our own choices.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A romance story with lots of twists and turns 18 novembre 2012
Par The Kindle Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This is the first book I have read by this author and it did not disappoint.

Hannah has a normal life, she is married with a son and she is fairly happy. She loves her son Luke dearly, she cares for her husband Cliff but pretty much just goes through the motions of marriage with him.

The story starts at the beginning of a family holiday where they join Hannah's sister Jill, her gay friend Tristan and her daughter Aisha. We are also introduced to Cliff's brother James later on in the story.

The holiday starts well although from the beginning it is evident there are tensions there, I am not going to spoil the story but I will say that there are plenty of twists in it.

Once I got past the first 50 pages I could not put this book down, my only criticism of the book is that it was a bit of a slow starter for me.

I loved the characters Hannah, Jill and Tristan. I thought that all of the characters were well developed and it was a thoroughly engaging story.

This book also addresses some serious issues, it does it tastefully but also raises awareness to the reader.

This book did leave me slightly wanting more but that is not a negative to me, that is something I really like in a book. If there was a follow up to the story I think I would prefer a book about James's story that runs alongside this story rather than a sequel.

I loved this book and I can not wait to read more of this author's books. I have rated The Half Life of Hannah 5 stars, this is a justified rating although if there was the option to I would realistically have given it 4.8 stars just because It was a bit of a slow start. The complete story is definitely worth waiting for though.
