I loved listening to the audio version of this short story! And what a great story it was! It is set in the future and about a teenager who has a clone of him self. The main character is cruel and treats his clone unkindly. He then meets a girl that he falls in love
With and finally loves someone more than himself. I won’t give away the story but it’s really good! The narrator told the story well and brought the characters to life. I will look out for more from this author in the future. 👌😊

What an absolute hidden gem of a book! Loved listening to this so much. Not what I expected at all! It tells the story of a former Olympic medal winner who is now in his thirties and still stays at home with his parents. The main character Trip is arrogant, lazy, a bit of a narcissist and quite un-likeable at the start. He meets a girl who looks after goats called Rose and falls in love. However their love affair is not a straight forward one. The tale is funny, charming and heart warming! I absolutely loved listening to it. The narrator told the story beautifully. I will look out for more from this author. ❤️🙌

Great, fun, light hearted listen ❤️

I absolutely loved listening to this great, fun, light hearted story. It is about a girl, Janey, who teaches pole dancing on a cruise ship. She meets a lovely man called frank, who is a passenger - but staff are not allowed o form relationships with passengers- and that is where the drama begins. I won’t give too much away but it has many similarities to the film dirty dancing. Loved it! The narrator told the story beautifully and portrayed characters well. This was a fun, girly read that I would definitely recommend. 👍🏻will look out for more from this author.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story. Literally had me laughing out loud at some parts. The characters were very relatable. It is about a married couple with kids and follows the ups and downs of their lives. The story is funny, witty and will not fail to have you laughing. If you are looking for a light hearted, fun listen then this is the book for you. I loved the narrator too. Will definitely look out for more from this author. 10/10 👌😊

This was a great story and very easy to listen to. Finished it in a day as I kept wanting to know what happened next! I thought the characters were believable and relatable. I thought the narrator was good but found it odd that the story was set in England, yet all the characters had American accents! The story ended on a cliff hanger an I would like to hear what happens next. I shall look out for more from this author. Well worth a listen 👍🏻😁

Loved this!

Absolutely loved listening to these three stories, one after another. So easy to listen to. They had me laughing so much. I liked the way all three were partly linked through characters. The characters were very believable. The narrator really brought the story to life and was good with different accents. I would highly recommend this book. Great for a light hearted, fun listen. 10/10 😃
