Summary

People are odd. Even the most predictable of us sometimes defy expectations. Add to that the tricks that life plays on us and the world suddenly seems full of impossible things.

As an award-winning actor and writer, Rebecca Front has always been fascinated by life's little quirks. Impossible Things Before Breakfast is a collection of true stories about surprising turns of events, bizarre misunderstandings and improbable life lessons. We learn, among other things, how gazing at the stars can help you communicate with teenagers, how a mushroom can undermine an ancient ritual, and why everyone should wear a cape.

Combining elegant writing, wry humour and genuine insight, this brilliant collection prises open the lid on ordinary life and feasts on the impossible.

Full of wonderful anecdotes

This is a wonderful, well written and read book. Rebecca Front has a fabulous voice that is a joy to listen too. The stories are told in a way that set the scene perfectly.
I hope that a follow up is in the pipeline!
5 stars all round.

Cring worthy stories and voices

I like her normal voice and demeanor but with the content and people in several of her stories like the cafe where the ladies are upset about the prices...it was like nails on a chalkboard for me. The ending was particularly terrible reminder of how anxious I get before an important meeting like her and the cab driver being unreliable and aloof. I just felt anxious the whole time, not entertained.

Delightful and Funny

She tells stories so vividly. I got the audible and it was so entertaining to listen to. I am still searching for that no name restaurant and the challenging stool though.
