BEST AUDIO BOOK I’VE EVER LISTENED TO!

Sorry about the shouty title but this truly was the best audiobook I’ve ever listened to. Everything about it was perfect. The story and the performance. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to a book where I’ve laughed and bawled my eyes out at the same time. Proper loud ugly crying and loud laughing. I came to care about Olive and Birdie so much it was heartbreaking when the book finished.
I listen to a lot of audiobooks. Usually I potter on with my day whilst I’m listening. If I’m not driving I’m working in my garden, doing the housework, cooking, washing up, knitting, painting, having a bath. This is the first time I have just stopped. Sat on the sofa and listened to the last 3 hours in complete soggy rapture.

LoveLoveLoved IT!!

In the first few minutes I thought I'd struggle with the narrator but totally the right for for this book. I am so glad I listen in the car or bed as I was laughing out loud or sobbing. What a rollercoaster of funny, quiet realistic adventures with beautiful friendship messages woven through. I hope there is a sequel as I really want to continue Olives journey.

INSANELY AMAZING AND HILARIOUS

ugh. this book.

No, not "ugh" in a bad way. "UGH" like wow I didn't know I could laugh so unbelievably hard, smile, cry and just overall enjoy a book so much.

Also, the narration was INSANE (hence the title of my review). The narrator did an amazing job at all the different characters and accents. I felt like her voice was so well suited for the main character, Olive. There have been few books I would rather listen to than read, but man, this book. I feel like it's truly a treat to listen to the narration and wonderful story.

It's so inspiring too. The book really makes you want to live life.

Okay, why are you still reading my review?! Just download it already!

A “good for the soul” kind of book

Kirsty Greenwood’s “Big Sexy Love” is a what defines a “feel good” novel. You will laugh (sometimes even ugly snorts will escape you), you will cry (*insert ugly snorts here too), and also, learn (and feel) the true meaning of “storm-horned”... but most important of all, you will be reminded of the true meaning of love, friendship and what it means to live life to the fullest. Well done Kirsty, you’ve become my new obsession!
