Publisher's Summary

Hot Mess [n.] - someone who is often in a state of disarray while remaining attractive in spite of their flaws and repeatedly finds themselves in uncomfortable predicaments.

Ellie Knight is just like you. Her life isn't turning out the way she thought it would. Some people might say she's a hot mess, but then who really has their s--t together before they're 30?

It's Valentine's Day, and Ellie Knight finds herself eating Nutella in the bar stock after a no-show date. But single doesn't have to be the loneliest number, does it? She goes back home to her flatshare and weird flatmates. It's okay there's black mould everywhere, right?

With a hangover from hell, she goes to the office job she thought she would have quit by now. Doesn't everyone hate their job? Maybe Ellie isn't following the official life plan, but perfect is overrated.

For fans of Fleabag and Girls, this is a fresh and funny coming-of-age story with a single-girl heroine that everyone will relate to - a modern Carrie Bradshaw meets Bridget Jones. Read by Elisabeth Hopper.

    "This is THE BEST audio book I've listened to!"

    Absolutely hilarious!! Story is brilliant and really insightful. Narrator is great (best I've heard).<br /><br />Anyone 25-35 who isn't rushing to get married and have children will totally relate.<br /><br />Her dads books was possibly the best thing I've ever heard. Even my boyfriend thought this book was one of the best he had heard - proving how non chicklit/fluffy it was!

    "made me laugh the whole way through"

    The performance was excellent. It's nice to read a book about a woman who's purpose in life isn't just to find a man!

    "Hilarious and real"

    I identified with this a lot as we are around the same age and it's of the current time. It's LOL funny, the narrator especially. The only irritating parts were the 'novel' that was read out, I skips those parts. All in all, realistic and hilarious

    "Honest and entertaining"

    Really great reading for those who are tired of princess fairytales and cliche romances. Funny and thought provoking.

    "Has funny parts but wouldn't recommend "

    I was so disappointed with this book. The general attitude of the main character is boring, unbelievable and out of date. There really are points that are funny but they are spoiled by characters and story line which feels like it is constantly copied from other books (my dad wrote a porno, Bridget Jones etc) but not in an entertaining or current way. If I could get my money back I would. I guess some people might think the small funny scenes are worth it.

    "Don't be fooled- it's still chick-lit"

    I was pointed to this book via a podcast- and was given to think that this book is a feminist twist on the usual rom-com/chick-lit. Alas, it was not to be. Although this book has a different twist in that the ending is not the usual syrup-y nonsense, in its on way, it till belongs to the "summer beach reads" list. It's light, vacuous with little to say.

    "Predictable"

    Fairly amusing in parts but just got bored of the dad's book which seemed to serve no purpose other than to pad the book out. Too predictable and lame <br />
