Description

From the bestselling author of Checking Out and Dry Hard comes a hilarious story about losing the love of your life, and finding yourself in the aftermath.

When Ollie Sweet is very publicly dumped by ‘The One’, his seemingly perfect world dissolves into misery, self-pity, and a bizarre rooftop meeting with a suicidal man in flip-flops. While most would seek out the support of loved ones at such a torrid time, natural-born journalist Ollie asks the subscribers of his website: how did they get over their failed relationships?

When Ollie follows some of their more extreme advice, chaos inevitably ensues, including accidentally exposing himself to some unsuspecting wildlife, jumping out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane, and suffering from an extremely painful bottom, courtesy of a maniacal Scotsman.

Of course, all of this goes down a storm with his online following, and Ollie soon finds himself the centre of everyone’s attention - whether he likes it or not!

With his eclectic collection of supporters to guide him, can Ollie mend his broken heart, heal his broken bottom, and learn to find happiness again?

literally laugh out loud funny

the book itself is hilarious, of course. the stories, the situations Ollie finds himself in, but the real hero of this audio book is the narrator. he's bloody brilliant (to steal a Britishism)! The character voices are perfect, and the delivery adds so much to the comedy. many occasions I found myself in tears laughing. well worth the listen or read!

This deserves 10 stars

This book is phenomenal. The writing is fantastic and i felt like i had a front row seat to a movie about Ollie's life!
The narrator is perfection and elevates the creative writing into something that cannot be explained by words.
This book deserves more than 5 stars!

Quite a journey

This book is a must-listen. It’s so good that I wish I could listen to it for the first time again. I savored every chapter, laughing until I cried more times than I can remember. It’s my first Nick Spalding book and I’m definitely checking out more of his work.

Steve West hits it out of the park in this performance. He vividly brings Ollie to life so well, if they make this into a film (they absolutely should) then Steve has to play Ollie. Some Audies better be coming his way for his work in this as he is superb.

Entertaining, Fun and surprising

It is strange how much we miss when we are in the middle of it all. Spaulding’s hallmark for the ears might just be the unusual tool that may help you see differently.

More Spaulding Fun

Spaulding has a style that is consistent and if you like it, he's written plenty of fun, clever books with more rollicking adventures and hilarious embarrassments. I love being able to purchase a book and know what I'll be getting without being bored, depressed, or disappointed. Spaulding delivers exactly what you order on the menu and it's satisfyingly upbeat!

funny and boring

the first half is ver funny and entertaing, the rest of the book rather boring and annoying. the speaker is really doing a superb job.
