Description

If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That ,to me, is a better reflection of a human's life.

Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune, meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job, dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy.

In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies, Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.

Beautiful and insightful

As a fan of Nick Frost and the work he's done it's great to get an insight into who he is as a person. It's not often you get to listen to someone talk about their lives and their experiences. Hearing him read the story you get the sense that he's not reading from a book but in fact hanging out with you recounting his life informally.

Beautiful

Many of you may know him from his many films and television credits. This story isn’t about that, well kind of it is. It’s the journey of how he found himself, lost himself, loved, lost love, good times, bad times. It’s the story of him and it was an amazing one 5/5.

Fried Gold

Don't judge him, he's from Essex. If I were to judge him, I would say, he himself is indeed fried gold. I only wish the book was longer. Thank you Mr Frost.

Proper honest storytelling.

I loved that this was a proper honest story of growing up and dealing with less than perfect circumstances in far from perfect ways. I grew up in a very similar place at the same time so much of the madness was familiar to me. As much as it's a story about being a bit of a fuck up in London at that time as it is a story about friendships and trying different ways of dealing with very difficult shit. I liked the gritty details of average stories and bits and pieces. Even the exaggerations and flights of fancy.
I love that people can get lucky even when it seems most bleak. It's also about powerful friendships and acceptance. That it wasn't just a 'look at how great my life is now'.
Nice work mate.
Miles

A very interesting read!

I admit, I could have kept on and on listening to you Nick, your very funny and quick. I love your humor. Thank you for sharing your life.
It took some doing figuring out some of the dialect, but... I am a huge fan of yours and have seen many of your films and shows ha, I think I did pretty well😀. I can't wait till your next book.

Really enjoyed listening, laugh out loud funny at times. Loved that Nick read like it he was telling a story and not reading a book

Funny but also touching

A surprisingly touching and poignant book. It touched a nerve as someone who grew up drunk and in London during the same decades. Well written and fascinating. Can’t wait for the sequel.
