ScotsmanOf course all of this goes down a storm with his online following and Ollie soon finds himself the centre of everyone’s attention – whether he likes it or notWith his eclectic collection of supporters to guide him can Ollie mend his broken heart heal his broken bottom and learn to find happiness again I am almost positive that I grabbed this audio book solely because it was narrated by the wonderful Steve West He is AMAZING So amazing Did I mention that he is an amazing audio book narrator Well he is It was a bit weird to hear him narrate this modern story about a semi awkward feature writer for a failing magazine who is trying to get over the terrible rejection he received from who he thought was THE ONE I still think of Steve West as narrator for An Ember in the Ashes and so I felt like Elias from that story had jumped into my world to tell this story Weird But after I got used to modern and realistic Steve Ward I was able to sit back and enjoy his wonderful take on this storyMy big problem at the beginning of this story was that I felt as if Nick Spalding was trying too hard to be cute and clever with his words Sure he was cute and clever but I was feeling a tad manipulated sort of how I feel for some of John Green's writings You have to admit that Ollie the protagonist of this story just falls into so many crazy and funny situations that it felt a bit contrived At first But soon I couldn't help myself I just kind of fell for the guy He was such a hopeless romantic but nothing seemed to go his way He felt like a loser but he wasn't He was a sweetheart and I had to root for him This isn't really a romance at all In fact if you are picking this up and hoping for some sort of happily ever after or even a wonderful relationship at the end you are going to be sadly disappointed and maybe even a bit ticked off But if you realize that this is a story of a guy figuring himself out and learning to be comfortable in his own skin I think you'll find a story that is rewarding and funny I didn't roll on the floor with tears in my eyes because of the humor in this But I did find myself chuckling here and there and that should count for something since it takes a bit for me to laugh out loud when I read books I think that Steve West did a phenomenal job painting a picture of who Ollie was and his sense of humor while he narrated It was a pleasure to listen to this narration I give the story a strong 35 stars but the narration was definitely 5 stars so that brings the whole story up to four I really liked it
