Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Everything I Know About Love, written and read by Dolly Alderton. A spot-on, wildly funny and sometimes heartbreaking book about growing up, growing older and navigating all kinds of love along the way.
When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown-up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod Stewart-themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realising that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out.
It's an audiobook about bad dates, good friends and - above all else - recognising that you and you alone are enough. Glittering with wit and insight, heart and humour, Dolly Alderton's powerful debut weaves together personal stories, satirical observations, a series of lists, recipes and other vignettes that will strike a chord of recognition with women of every age - while making you laugh until you fall over. Everything I Know About Love is about the struggles of early adulthood in all its grubby, hopeful uncertainty.

Words can’t express how much I loved this book. I felt myself slink back into my memories for not too dissimilar stories, and finding solace in Dolly’s beautifully writer words. From laughter, to cringing I loved every single chapter of this.
Dolly hat eine sehr angenehme Stimme und auch dass sie das Buch selber liest, macht es richtig persönlich.
Beim Anhören des Buches erlebt man regelrecht alle Gefühle. Es bringt einem zum laut Loslachen aber es kann einem auch die ein oder andere Träne über das Gesicht laufen.
Speziell den Schluss fand ich sehr schön.
Dolly hits the nail on the head and encapsulates life as a millennial perfectly. The book is very well read, and relaxing to listen to, I really enjoyed it!
