Publisher's Summary

Social talent star Louise Pentland brings us her enchanting and inspiring audiobook.

You'll never forget the day you met #RobinWilde!

'Four years, 2 months and 15 days of single-mum-dom. Didn't someone say this was supposed to get easier?'

It's time for Robin Wilde to change. Her. Life.

Robin Wilde has a beautiful six-year-old daughter, a job she's really rather good at, a wonderful best friend and an auntie who is bonkers, yes, but loves her to the moon and back. But Robin has a secret. Behind the mask she carefully applies every day, she can't shift the grey, lonely feelings of The Emptiness.

She struggles to fit in with the school mum crew, online dating is totally despair-inducing and she worries all the time about raising her daughter with self-confidence, courage and joy. What Robin wants, more than anything, is someone (over the age of six) to share her life with. But Robin Wilde isn't one to wallow. If change won't come to her, she'll just have to go out there and find it.

Exciting new opportunities are about to come Robin's way.... Perhaps a man, perhaps the promise of an adventure.... What will Robin do with the possibilities she creates? And when her perfect moment comes, will Robin be brave enough to take the leap?

Enchanting and uplifting. Very funny. This audiobook will make you feel fantastic just for being you.

    Story
    "I don't read women's fiction..."

    I don't read women's fiction... but this book might ensure I shelf my normal crime/thrillers and start reading more books similar to Wilde.

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't drawn to the novel by the author, whom I've followed for years.

    I was a little sceptical of whether this book would live up to its hype...I gave this book a chance, and the story is far better than anything I'd imagined it be. It's far more than a 'YouTube book'.

    For anyone who knows anything about Louise's life, the story appears to echo some of the experiences she's shared online.

    Robin Wilde is a lovable character which I'm sure all Mums (including myself!) find relatable. The mum guilt, the thought processes of a working mum and the love Robin has for her daughter.
    This is a beautiful story, which is funny, heartwarming and thought provoking.
    A thoroughly fun read/listen and adult without being smutty.
    Can't recommend this book enough, I can't wait to read another instalment!

    Story
    "Only for single mums"
    What did you like best about Wilde Like Me? What did you like least?

    If you're a single mum who feels like your life is rubbish, you'll like this. I'm neither and found it deeply irritating. It alternates between gloopy sentimentality about how adorable and lovely being a mother is and how lonely and unfulfilled she feels. This is based on Part One only as I couldn't bear ploughing through to the end.


    What was most disappointing about Louise Pentland’s story?

    It was supposed to be a witty account of single parent life. I found it totally lacking in humour - more whiny than anything.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Fiona Hardingham?

    Possibly.


    Did Wilde Like Me inspire you to do anything?

    Return the audiobook and buy something less annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    I can only hope it became more positive as it wore on. I wouldn't doubt she gets a man in the end so if that's what you're after, go for it.

    Story
    "You'll never forget the day you met Robin Wilde!"

    Amazing debut novel by Louise, the story is extremely relatable which is what makes it so captivating for the audience. It's a very modern story and Robin is perceived as an extremely modern woman, she is a character you instantly adore and would love to have as your best friend. Very well written story capturing life's thrills and struggles, Louise uses interesting and interacting lexical terms making the reader feel a part of the story. I'd suggest it would appeal to a primarily female audience, from around age 17-40. Thoroughly enjoyable read/listen.

    Story
    "Didn't empathise with the main character"

    The story was unoriginal and I could guess many of the things that happened. The main character was a bit too self pitying and self involved for my liking and was hard to empathise with as I could see her ignoring the clues others left of their own problems. For three quarters of the book, Robin thought everyone else had a perfect life but her. Jealous of her family, her friends, her coworker etc

    "Heartwarming"

    A very true to life and heartwarming story full of laughter, silliness and relatable every day life struggles. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait for the next one!!! (I bloody hope there will be another one!) Thank you Louise for a wonderful novel, Robyn feels like a new friend that I will always want to catch up with. Keep 'em coming!

    Story
    "I wanted so badly to love this!"

    I love Louise and her channel, and wanted to like this book, too. I really, really wanted to. It's full of Robin telling us exactly what to think, rather than guiding us along a story. More time is given to describing outfits, cakes and lashes than the really important people - Theo, Aunty Kath and even Lila. I'd love to get to know these people more so that I can come along on the journey with Robin. Louise, you've got talent and the characters are great - I know the upcoming books are going to develop them and your writing style.

    "Lovely!"

    Heartwarming, charming, and funny! It's full of strong women supporting, and loving one another. Beautifully written, and well read by the narrator. Can't wait for book two to catch up with Robin, and all the lovely ladies in this story.

    This was a fine effort. For me, this book had nothing new to offer that I hadn't read before. So, while not original, nicely put together and well narrated.

    This book walks the ok line pretty well, there were moments when I thought it was going to cross the line into great but alas it did not. Worth listening too but not one I would do over and over again.

    "I've heard this before"
    Would you try another book from Louise Pentland and/or Fiona Hardingham?

    The story was well narrated.


    Would you recommend Wilde Like Me to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you have already listened Big Little Lies then this book will feel like a repeat. There are some good jokes but an overall feeling that this story was already told. Sorry, don't know who published first.
